One of the greatest TV shows EVER has to be the Andy Griffith Show.  I didn’t know it at the time but the Lessons Learned From The Andy Griffith Show, I still carry in my life today!

The simple life of Mayberry, North Carolina is a life I’d trade it all for today.  “The Andy Griffith Show” ran from 1960 to 1968. It was the only show that was still number one when it ended.  Andy, Barney, Aunt Bee, and Opie felt like family.
