I was also saddened and a bit surprised.  I did not realize he was in such poor health.  I though that Jim Neighbors would pass before Andy.
What did surprise me I read that the burial was about 5 hours after they announced his death.

I never knew that there was an Aunt Bea cookbook.  Would you care to share some of the recipes?

What it Was, Was Football" is a monologue by comedian Andy Griffith. It was recorded in Raleigh, North Carolina for the Colonial label in 1953. Soon, Colonial had sold nearly 50,000 copies of the record and then sold the masters to Capitol Records. Capitol released the record in the same year, which soon had sold nearly 800,000 copies and was instrumental in launching Griffith's career in television, stage, and film. The record is still one of the biggest selling comedy records of all time.[1] On the original single, the monologue is credited to "Deacon Andy Griffith."[2]

The monologue is a description of a college football game, as seen by a naive country preacher who attends the game by accident and is entirely puzzled by it.

Griffith made an appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1954, in large part due to the popularity of the record

Andy Griffith will be missed by so many people.  His shows were always worth watching, much better than the garbage that is on these days.  One of the reasons I very rarely watch TV these days.

RIP Andy!

I loved watching Andy Griffith in The Andy Griffith Show and Matlock.  My son watched his shows in reruns and loved them too.

He was a great character and his shows were entertaining but most importantly, clean!

I loved Andy!  This was big news here in south eastern NC as "Mayberry" is just a hop skip and a jump up the road!

I would love to share some of the recipes.My book is packed away upstairs and I no longer can go up the stairs to get it.If I can get one of the guys to get it for me I will.Her recipe for kerosene cucumber is in it.Of course really not kerosene,that episode was just on the other day.She was entering her pickles in the fair and they were horrible,Clara always won.Some of the Chinese recipes that she featured in the restaurant that she bought and ran.It's just a cute little cookbook,a gift from my Hubby.
