The Andy Griffith Show, Timeless!

Standard

This show remains one of the best comedies in TV history. Andy Griffith, Ronnie Howard (yes that Ron Howard), Don Knotts and Frances Bavier told some great stories that showed that small town life was full of kindness, intelligence, simplicity and decency. Andy was a small town sheriff who was a single dad living with his aunt. That is a pretty progressive situation for the 1960’s. He was a kind man who made everyone in his life feel important.

The show has a popularity that has spanned generations. I would like to think that the Mayberry influence still resonates with people who want to slow life down a little bit, go to the fishing hole and perhaps spend more time with those we love.

Tonight we are watching Apollo 13  This an awesome movie directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks, Gary Sinise, Bill Paxton and Kevin Bacon. This movie is about a mission to the moon that turns into a mission to save three lives. The story takes place in one of my favorite times in American history. The space program is a big part of our nations contributions to the world. Technology from NASA has made many things we use today possible.
