April 29, 2016 - Msg 104484: By the way, Boo, that was cruel what you said in your p.s. about your weather. ;-)
Did I mention that the skin on my hands has started cracking again. Boy, will I be glad when summer is here.


April 29, 2016 - Msg 104485: What?? You want me to sweep with cracked hands?!
Oh well, no rest for the weather weary.

-SH again

April 29, 2016 - Msg 104486: BOO--Has Sean ever tried Melatonin? BTW, I only take 1 to 3 milligrams, that's all that's really needed.
Also, yes, it is tough when those decisions (about MIL) have to be prayers are with you.
ASA, here ya go... and to get your Friday off to a start! :)
Of course its a good one for SPOT too! ha
And I really liked this song in the '70s...
HI RITCHIE - That Poor Horatio's education was worth every penny!
TOM --Yes indeed! As REV would say "Remember, Jesus loves you!" :)
GF--Nice, real nice!
Sterling, my prayers continue. Did you ever go thru your house and "pray up the walls" as the old saying goes? Go into each room and command the devil and his evil ones to get out! Jesus gave us that authority, and then invite the Holy Spirit to come in and fill every inch of your home and property! Amazing what He can do!
Just an idea that may affect her heart.
See ya all on the flip flop. Remodel continues...80s wallpaper removal tomorrow!

April 29, 2016 - Msg 104487: Good sweep SH! There is some kind of oil really good for cracked skin, but the durn name isnt coming to me. Begins with F I think! mdc

April 29, 2016 - Msg 104488: Thank you Romeena and PH for clearing up a few questions for me. There is a product called O'Keeffe's for cracked skin. I better get back to my hardware store now. Ernest T is busting up all the windows. I think I will start replacing them with Plexiglass. Ritchie Ferarra

April 29, 2016 - Msg 104489: Good Morning Gang! at work for 16hrs till 10 pm...Breakfast menu:2 eggs your way,sausage,country ham,bisquits and gravy,hashbrowns,grits,Oj,apple juice...ready at 7:15..Prayers and lets be safe out there !..SPOT

April 29, 2016 - Msg 104490: Well gang, I said I was not going to give audience to the book "Andy & Don" but I did rent it from the library. I can see why the Mayberry community is giving it the "Big Freeze" ...

It is written by Don Knotts's 3rd wife's sisters husband, (I guess that makes him a expert?) He only met Don a couple of times, and never spoke to Andy. I'm thinking he got most of his information from those tabloid papers at the check-outs.

I'm sure both men were complex and had their issues and big egos much like everyone else in "Hollyweird" does, but the fact IS they were both talented men who were best friends to the end!.... As for me, I hope Andy's wife Cindi will give the Ok to the autobiography our own "Head Goober" Jim Clark did with Andy while he was still alive. Jim said to me, it is in the can waiting for her to give the ok to publish it.

I can maybe see now why she didn't go through with it at this point in time knowing this other book was coming out.
Just my opinion!.... End of Report....


April 29, 2016 - Msg 104491: Good Friday morning all.

Yep GF, I am sorry I spent good money on the book. Although it had some good reading in it, it does have that sleazy "tabloid" feel to it also. I do like how it shows just how good a friends Andy and Don were. I think that genuine friendship showed in TAGS and is perhaps what has made it so special over the more than half century it's been around. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

That's a long shift Spot. Thanks for the vittles buddy.

Sorry you had to sweep with cracked hands Sterling. But you did a nice job. I have taken to wearing those light weight rubber gloves (surgical gloves) at work most of the time. It keeps me from having to wash my hands so often, which in return seems to keep my hands from getting so dried out. You ain't got a hand washing compelshin do ya? lol

Welcome to Ritchie Ferarra. Why don't you pick you a TAGS name and pull up a rocker and sit a spell.

How goes the remodel MDC?

Whoops, gotta get. Someone is here.


April 29, 2016 - Msg 104492: O.K., I'm back. Have not even started my shift and I have the hounds howling at my door.

Thanks for those links to the songs MDC. I do love Frank and Nancy's singing. Did I ever tell you guys that the Doctor who attended my Mom when I was born is the same Doctor who attended the Osmonds kids? That's right. They was born right here in Ogden Utah back in the day. Why that makes me almost kin. And Royalty at that. lol

O.K. Now I better get to work. 3 day weekend for me as I am taking Monday off. Yippeee!


April 29, 2016 - Msg 104493: Hello Asa: Ritchie Ferarra is a TAGS name. Thanks for the invite to sit a spell. Nothing else going on at the moment. Ritchie Ferarra


Let me know if the porch needs a sweep                                   Archives
This version of The Taylor's Front Porch has been created to pay our respect to the original porch found on Thanks to Frank for all the work he did for Mayberry on the web. We've tried to make this just like Frank's Porch. This is also a tribute to Ollie's "Trivialities" site which was another homage to Frank's porch but is no longer with us.
