    Ubiquitous character actor William Schallert has passed away at the age of 93. Best remembered as Mr. Lane on "The Patty Duke Show", he has hundreds of credits in film and TV. I will never forget him from a brief appearance as a cross-eyed judge in "The Jerk" starring Steve Martin. If you've never seen the failed 1963 pilot episode "Philbert", check it out on the "Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Vol. 3". William Schallert plays a cartoonist who's character comes to life when no one else is around.

    Better Times

    August 23, 2014 by Glassonion0

    Coming from a small town like I do, Cedartown Georgia, I know how things are in these small towns. You can be standing on a street corner & Sneeze, by the time you get to another corner, somebody else will be saying "Bless you". I would love to live in Mayberry, have just one Sherriff, & Just one Deputy, riding around in the only Police car. Simpler times, you could leave your doors unlocked, not have to worry about being robbed of everything that you have.

    Doug Dillard's Grave

    June 6, 2014 by Andlaw99


    Last Saturday, my wife and I visited Doug Dillard's grave at Harpeth Hills Memory Gardens near Nashville, Tennessee. The cemetery has placed a temporary plaque at his grave, I assume until a more permanent one is placed by his next-of-kin. His date of death is correct (May 16, 2012), but he was born in 1937, not 1987 as it reads on the card. We were told by the very helpful staff at the office that Doug's wife Vikki Sallee Dillard had died last September and was buried next to him. Her grave currently has no marker. We would have stayed longer to sing a chorus of "Dooley", but we were chased away by a ferocious swarm of gnats. For more info, be sure to check out his findagrave memorial.

    Hickman Pecan Festival

    September 15, 2013 by Andlaw99

    My wife and I attended the Pecan Festival in Hickman, Kentucky on Saturday, September 15 just to see Rodney Dillard and his band with Maggie Peterson. They sang "Dooley", "Salty Dog" and "There Is a Time" and performed "Doug's Tune". Of course the music was great, but the real delight was talking to them. They were both as gracious and generous with the fans as you might expect.

    RIP Andy Griffith!

    Andy passed away this morning July 3, 2012 in his home...he just turned 86.

    One of America's most beloved men has now joined his best friend Don Knotts in heaven.


    Let's remember Andy by you telling us your favorite Andy Taylor moment on the Andy Griffith Show.

    You will be missed Andy!



    “Andy was a person of incredibly strong Christian faith and was prepared for the day he would be called Home to his Lord. He is the love of my life, my constant companion, my partner, and my best friend. I cannot imagine life without Andy, but I take comfort and strength in God’s Grace and in the knowledge that Andy is at peace and with God.”


    "His pursuit of excellence and the joy he took in creating served generations & shaped my life I'm foreve…

    RIP Frank Cady

    June 11, 2012 by Andlaw99

    Actor Frank Cady who appeared in two TAGS episodes and in the original Danny Thomas spinoff episode Danny Meets Andy Griffith has died at the age of 96. He was the original Mayberry town drunk. Can you imagine him as Otis Campbell instead of Hal Smith? Most people remember him as Sam Drucker from "Green Acres". He's also in "Rear Window" (Hitchcock's best movie!), as the husband of cartoon voice actress Sara Berner.

    Today my wife Jennifer and I visited the grave of Frank Sutton at Greenwood Cemetery in his hometown of Clarksville, Tennessee. He is buried between his parents Frank and Thelma. He lost his father at the age of 14, served in the Army in the South Pacific during World War II, and graduated from Columbia University with a drama degree. He died more than 37 years ago while preparing for an appearance in a dinner theater in Shreveport, Louisiana.


    When we arrived we were surprised to find a United States Marine Corps flag planted at his grave. He ended up serving in the Army because he wasn't able to pass the Marine Corps physical during the War. However the flag serves as a great tribute to the enduring character of Sergeant Carter that he cr…

    Just watched Return to Mayberry and now I'm all teary! ;-( It is so happy and funny and sad all at the same time! I thought I could get through it, but with the last scene where Barn and Andy take the flag down, I just felt sad and cried a little! Ah! What a wonderful series... Wish it had never ended!
