Happy Fourth Weekend from Barney Fife!

Nothing like the Fourth of July weekend to make us feel a bit nostalgic and here's one for you - everyone's favorite, The Andy Griffith Show. When I first moved to Sunland-Tujunga it sure reminded me a lot of Mayberry, North Carolina, the setting for the legendary show.

And one of the best parts of the old Andy Griffith show was of course Don Knotts as Deputy Barney Fife. Barney thought he was pretty important and loved being in charge, but in reality he was quite incompetent and never really accomplished much. Often, the town privately viewed him as a laughing stock. Still, he had a good heart which was probably why Sheriff Andy, his second cousin and best friend, went to great lengths to cover for Barney's many mistakes.

Enjoy now, a great scene with Barney Fife.
