Ellie: Um Humm.

Barney: Good for him!...I mean we'll catch him don't you worry.

Barney: First chance I've had to use the finger printin' kit the state capitol sent us. Finger Print Powder...find the finger prints, find the criminal case closed.

Barney pops open the can of what looks like white talcum powder that goes everywhere and completely covers his face.

Barney coughing: Well he probably wore gloves anyway...don't you worry though I'll have this case closed in 24 hours or my name isn't reliable Barney Fife.

Barney packs up his finger printing case and starts out the door just as Opie is coming in.

Barney: Better stay off the streets Ope.

One of Barney's classic scenes that makes me laugh just thinking about it and typing it in here. I am thoroughly enjoying all the quotes and looking forward to sharing with my family in the TV Land Marathon tonight. Hope everyone here on the Porch is having a great day the Mayberry way! Hey SPOT what's for Lunch...how about something Southern Fried? or Maybe we could go over to the diner for the Business Man's Special...a stuffed tomato with a Lemon Fizz and then we could go over to the Grand and watch them change the Marquee...Barney always enjoyed that and we could do it in his memory!

Thoughts and Prayers for everyone here!

I appreciate it and Good Night!

Good morning Porch, or what's left of it. Hey to CT, POOR HORATIO, BUCKEYE, SMH, MRS. WILEY (how do you do?--sorry, couldn't resist), FRED, SH, HM and anybody else lurking about.

Drat! Missed breakfast at the Cracker Barrel this morning. And it was on SPOT, too. Anybody have a doggie bag to share? Had a doctor's appointment this morning that ran toooooo long. You know what's worse than having to sit in a doctor's waiting room for way yonder too long? Having to do it with bad magazines. There oughta be a law.

Love the quotes. Either someone has a phenomenal memory or a blister on their remote control finger. Just stopped over at Miss Crump's for my daily dose of educashion (it is worth every penny I am paying for it; it's free). Seems an interloper has been running amuk over there recently. Seems like some buds weren't nipped when they should have been. Is it too much to expect people to act like somebody in a public forum? Sheesh.

Oh, well, back to the grind. Talk to all you good people later.

I was just remembering the episode of The Remshaw House when Barney and Gomer are standing in the old house and Gomer dissappears. I love the look on Barney's face when he says, "Gomer?.....Gomer?......Gooooooooome???". I really loved Barney in that episode. Whenever Barney got together with Gomer, it was hilarious. One of my other favorites is the campfire scene when Andy tells the story of The Golden Arm and the looks on Barney and Gomer's faces, then you see them lying close to Andy in their sleeping bags with the terrified looks on their faces. That 'un kills me!

Mavis...I'm like you. It has really suprised me the number of people who have come to and called my office to tell me how sorry they are. I have lots of Barney/Don pics and even a barney light switch cover in my office. It's very touching that people notice those things. :-)

February 28, 2006 - Msg 35092: Great marathon tonight, just wish it was longer. I went ahead and got my box of tissues out cause I knew I'd need them. Loved the bit TVLand did for Don Knotts, I think I cried everytime it came on. Mavis, I know what you mean about the towns you live in, cant tell you the phone calls I got from people wondering if I'd heard or not. Just makes Mayberry that much more special I guess. Hope you all are doing better, as always this porch has helped me more than anything. You guys are the greatest. Love and prayers to everyone here.--Salty Dog

February 28, 2006 - Msg 35093: During those tributes between the shows tonight, it really finally hit me that Don is gone. I was fortunate enough to be there with Andelina when Don got that award at the TV Land Awards in Hollywood.

"I was a Pawn in the Hands of a Wily Woman"

February 28, 2006 - Msg 35094: Howdy all you wonderful people! The quotes are still great.

I had to miss the TAGS marathon tonight (Boo-Hoo). My poor friend who is a single mom needed
help moving but when we got the 24 foot U-Haul packed full, she couldn't find the keys to drive it! It was too late to get another one and we still had a bunch to move. What a nightmare. She is supposed to be out by 8am....not happening.

Been a long day, I think I'll turn in. I have been thinking alot about Barney today, even more that yesterday. There will never be another Barney.


February 28, 2006 - Msg 35095: Gosh, my sister was the only person that called to find out if I knew that Don had passed. I mentioned it to a few people and they looked at me like they couldn't care less. I think some of my friends and family just don't understand my love for all things Mayberry. Everytime I watch TAGS, my dad says, "I can't believe it. Again?!".


February 28, 2006 - Msg 35096: I sent the TAGS videos to my mother who lives in England. She and Dad retired there after being in the Air Force for 26 years. She was disappointed that TAGS was never shown in England. Anyway, my then 5-year-old nephew would watch TAGS with her; he told her that he wished he could live in Mayberry. :'o)

Yesterday I heard folks speaking of Don Knotts in a doctor's office waiting room and a restaurant.He certainly made a big impact on so many people. It was two middle aged black men in the waitng room and two young white girls in the restaurant.Everybody loved Barney!

It will be cold, and possible freezing rain and snow later on tonight into tomorrow around these here parts....

Here was my smile for the day...

Last night, my 8 year old Opie and I were watching the "Pickles" episode on TV Land. My son decided he wanted pickles for a snack right then and there, but all I had was an old jar with one pickle in it (probably a lot nastier than Aunt Bea's!). This morning, I noticed the scrawled 8-year old writing on my grocery list of my son with one word- PICKLES -. He has never, ever, made an addition to my grocery list until last night! I laughed when I saw it.

Have a Mayberry Delightful Day!
