Very sad news yesterday...
Actor Andy Griffith, who played folksy Sheriff Andy Taylor in the fictional town of Mayberry, died Tuesday at the age of 86, his family said.
Best known for his role on "The Andy Griffith Show," the University of North Carolina music graduate also starred as a murder-solving Southern attorney in the television series "Matlock" during the 1980s and 1990s. He was also known for his roles in movies and on the stage, as a producer and as a Grammy Award-winning gospel singer.
I still watch this show once in a while when it's playing at the gym on TVLand. There's something nice about an old family program that didn't need to have unnecessary drama, fights, or slutty whores to get ratings.
Just a little home-spun wisdom, lessons learned, and a few freshly baked apple pies waiting at home in the window.
I need an Aunt Bee.
He will be missed.
