  1. Let us pause to remember the 48th anniversary of the greatest comedy show television ever produce.. The Andy Griffith Show.
    The show debuted Oct. 3, 1960.

    Clean, wholesome and still funny.

    Best ever.

    How many orginal cast members are still alive?

    Original?

    Andy Griffith, Ron Howard and Jim Nabors are the ones I can think of.
     
  4. George Lindsay hasn't gone to the big gas station in the sky yet, has he? And what about the dude who played Howard?

    Barney: Where's Otis? He's not in his cell.

    Bronson: I shot him.

    Barney: Well that's... what?!

    Bronson: And now, I'm going down to Emmett's Fix-It Shop. [cocks gun] To fix Emmett.

    I don't count him as original since he replaced Gomer.

    I know someone who's good friends with Nabors, who has been running a macadamia nut farm in Hawaii for a long time. Not a bad life, I wouldn't think.

    Way back in olden days (read: mid 90s), I used to do a Friday football postgame radio show in Nabors' hometown, Sylacauga, Ala. The regulars told me a story about interviewing Nabors when he was back in town for some civic parade or something.

    Radio guy: So what are you doing these days?
    Jim Nabors: Oh, just sitting around on my farm, raising my nuts.
