Well, If That Don't Beat All!
Forty-five years ago today Aunt Bee arrived in Mayberry, North Carolina, to live with her nephew Andy and his son Opie, and a classic TV series began to live in many of our hearts and minds. I can't say that I remember the airing of that very first episode ("The New Housekeeper") on October 3, 1960 (I was only 8 months old at the time), but I can certainly celebrate what this series has meant to me over the years. . . . Happy birthday to "The Andy Griffith Show." May you all have a "Mayberry moment" today.
