Andy Giffith is Gone Fishing I Hope

Television Isn't the Same 

Hearing the news this morning that Andy Giffith had died made me sad like many Americans.
His shows brought us joy, made us think about doing the right thing and how to care for others.

I wanted to live in Mayberry.

Twitter is going crazy with tweets about Andy. Here are a few:

RT @mental_floss: Andy Griffith Singing the Original Lyrics to The Andy Griffith Show Theme Song — http://t.co/xj8cHBs

 From Mayberry to Matlock to old country hymns, you left an indelible impression on American culture. Rest in peace, Andy Griffith.

  1. I sure wish they would put new shows on TV like that. Our country, our world, used to be so much more innocent, pure. People knew who they were, kids knew where home was. I wish the entertainment industry would be encouraging family values instead of constantly undermining them. Sad to think where it is all going.

  2. Chris, I couldn't agree with you more. Kids are bulling older women--could it be that they've never been exposed to Aunt Bee, only to violent video games and movies? I don't know but it makes me wonder.
