I was thinking about you last night, when I saw an episode of Andy Griffith that I'd never seen before. I haven't seen you around lately. Have you made it over to our back-up board?

Rob posted the other day in the original forum under my Prayers Please thread. I don't know if he knows we are all over here. I think Shirley sent out a mass email to everyone, but some of us didn't get it and some of us did......I didn't, but I already had the back up forum saved in my favorites. You might try to PM him if you can get into the regular forum.... Huh?

Oh boy. I got into the old site, and tried to send him a PM. . . . . He may get none......or he may get like FIVE, depending on how the site behaved. It was acting up horrible. I clicked send, and it went insane.
Hopefully it just went through once. Otherwise it'll sound like: "Rob.Rob.Rob.Rob.Rob." ANSWER ME! ROTFL LOL!!

Finally got here, Savannah. Thanks!

Which episode of Andy was it?

It was "The Return of Barney Fife". By the end of the episode, for the first time in watching the series, I really wanted to stomp the writers for doing that to Barney and Thelma Lou. I couldn't believe that they'd do that to a couple that everyone knew belonged together. I was going to write the writers to let them know just how I felt..........but then I remembered that the show ended before I was even born.........ROTFL

I'm glad that you made it over here!

Hey Rob, what's up? I'm curious to find out if you've been busy editing that story of yours. Keep me posted.

You picked a good one to miss. I have a book called The Andy Griffith Show by Richard Kelly, and he cites this as their worst episode. He says that one of the real charms of the show is that nothing permanently bad ever really happened, but that the writers seemed to throw that idea out the window in this ep.

Also, he hates the way it ends. Barney loses the only woman he's ever loved, but after a few compliments from some girl he went to high school with, he perks right up and is as good as new. Let me haul down that book off my shelf and give you Mr. Kelly's exact words:

"Barney has been turned into an absurd puppet, manipulated by a lethal script. The failure of this episode is in direct proportion to the success of all the previous ones in establishing the myth of permanence."

Youch. Wish he wouldn't beat around the bush. OhMy

Heh-heh! That reminds me of my Aunt Ann. She was a big Andy Griffith fan, and every day I'd ask her if she saw the previous night's episode. She'd say, "Yes, but it was a rerun." Umm, Ann, the show went out of production in 1968, so reruns are pretty much all we're gonna get. Wink

Hey Cheryl! I'm still working on the first chapter. It's taking a while. Out of all of them, this is the one that requires the most tinkering.

How's your writing going?

Writing is going well from a non-fiction perspective, not so well from a fiction perspective. I'm now a staff writer for the monthly ezine Writer2Writer. My articles will offer time management tips for my fellow writers and they will appear every other month.

Still working on edits to The Sisterhood, which I've determined may take the rest of my life. LOL! Also have a short story set in Mexico that I am trying to polish up to submit to Wolfmont Publishing. And about a million and one other things I want to do.

BTW, don't know if you heard, but the creators of NaNoWriMo have a new project called ScriptFrenzy. It starts in June and instead of writing a novel, you write a script. I might participate if I have the time.

Thanks for asking. Tell Snowden I say hi.

I"ll have to check out the book you mentioned. It sounds interesting. I haven't seen every episode of The Andy Griffith Show yet, but as it stands, I'd have to agree with the author. I never thought I'd see an episode of AG that I so incredibly disliked. But it was kind of like a "bad accident" affect . . . . . I couldn't look away. I don't know.....maybe I was waiting for Thelma Lou to suddenly say that she'd just been joking.

Oh! Last night, I was watching "The Long, Long Trailer" while I was cross stitching. I was looking down, reading the pattern, when I was SURE that I heard Floyd talking. I looked up, and there was Howard McNear! I've seen that movie several times, but never saw that particular scene - or just never payed attention.
He was just so funny!

That voice is very distinctive, whether it was before his stroke or after. Though Howard was one of those actors who could make me laugh just by being onscreen. He didn't even have to talk. Laughing
