R.I.P. Andy Griffith (1926-2012)

I did not grow up in the USA; in the sixties I was a wee red-haired laddie in Scotland. However, I have a good sense of what a touchstone the Andy Griffith Show became for many of the boomer crowd. It was a gloriously idealized version of an America that existed mostly in our hearts and dreams, but which was brought to life every week by Andy, Opie, Barney and Aunt Bea.

Rest In Peace.
