America’s sheriff Andy Griffith dead at 86

I have been a big fan of the 60s TV show, “The Andy Griffith Show” and recently purchased a 50th anniversary dvd which had the 1986 reunion movie. In today’s fast paste world with it crime violence and social unrest the wholesome charms of Mayberry and the escapades of Sheriff Andy Taylor and Deputy Barney Fife still resonate with much of the American public. It reflects an idealized time and is a comfort like a bowl of ice cream on a hot and muggy day.

America has lost a cultural icon today and I just want to thank him for all the joy and laughter he brought to all of us.

About billfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
