An Online newsletter of
“The Andy Griffith Show” Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC)
Welcome to the February Weaver’s Newsletter
Weaver’s is glad to have you here for this month’s issue of our newsletter which is the first without Jim Clark, Presiding Goober Emeritus of TAGSRWC, as writer and editor. We’ll do our best to continue the high level of Mayberry fun and information fans have come to expect over the last 40 years of TAGSRWC newsletters. We’d like to add a huge thank you to Jim Clark from ALL the fans of The Andy Griffith Show for all he’s done for the show and for the fans.
Now, on to the Mayberry fun!

Becoming Thelma Lou – My Journey to Hollywood, Mayberry, and Beyond (hardback) ($38)
By Betty Lynn with Jim Clark and Tim McAbee
Long before becoming beloved by generations of Mayberry fans for her portrayal of Thelma Lou, the ever-patient sweetheart of Barney Fife, Kansas City native Betty Lynn lived a life filled with interesting adventures and fascinating people.
In her own words, augmented by 140 rare photos, Betty shares the sometimes bittersweet, often surprising, and always inspiring story of her remarkable life. From her wartime service in India and Burma to sharing the spotlight with entertainment royalty from New York to Hollywood, Betty always remained grounded in her Midwestern values and strong faith.
Yes, Betty Lynn will forever be Thelma Lou to millions of us, but, as you will discover in these pages, there is also much more to learn and love about this truly extraordinary woman. Enjoy her incredible journey!
****News of Cast & Crew ****
Ron Howard is reportedly a cookie decorating master, at least according to a report by daughter Bryce in an interview with US Weekly in December 2022. Bryce reported that the Howard family has a wonderful holiday tradition of spending an entire day decorating cookies and competing. So not only is Ron an accomplished actor and director, his “cookies are strong.” Bryce said, “He’s got good cookie-decorating game. He’s creative and he has good small motor skills. You could say that Ron Howard is a visual artist and [he brings] that to his cookie decorating.”
Bryce also revealed that Ron raised his kids well. She was asked if she’d watched the TV shows her dad had been on early in his career and said she has watched Happy Days “Like a little bit. Not enough.” But she went on to say, “Well, I’ve watched Andy Griffith’s show a lot” revealing his children may have been raised on Mayberry like so many of us have been.
Imagine Entertainment, founded by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, continues to be successful in providing films and series that impact and entertain. The recent release of the Disney+ series Willow, based on and serving as a sequel to the Ron Howard directed 1988 film of the same name, ranked in the top 10 most streamed program across all platforms in December 2022 and into January 2023. Imagine continues to develop feature films and television so be on the watch for more cooking from these smart cookies.
Clarence Earp would love Clint Howard’s (Leon) latest project, The Old Way. In this cowboy film released January 6, 2023, Clint was able to show off his horseback riding and update his “Leon” costume to an adult size. He continues to make rounds appearing at events and, during the holidays, he and his family volunteered at the Los Angeles Mission helping serve meals. He appeared February 3 & 4 at the Hollywood Show at Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel and his line never slowed down. He even signed a extra large peanut butter and jelly sandwich for one collector.
Also appearing at the Hollywood Show was Margaret Kerry (Bess Muggins and Helen Scobey). Her line was consistently backed up for autographs as well proving that, along with Clint, Mayberry folks are still feeling the love from fans. She continues to be busy spreading pixie dust and smiles with online postings on social media as she prepares for her Tinker Bell talks schedule of 2023.
Rodney Dillard (guitar playing Darling boy) would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year from The Dillards, past and present. A special exhibit, including key Dillards memorabilia, is on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville until May 2025. He and the band hope to see you on the road in 2023. Check their official website for dates as they are confirmed.
Dennis Rush (Howie) reported that following attending Mayberry Days back in September 2022 he and his bride suffered through a trip to Hawaii. Luckily, they both survived roughing it several days on an island in the middle of the ocean. Crazy thing is, they would like to go back.
Ronnie Schell (two episodes and Duke Slater on “Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.”) has been interacting with fans, posting fun photos and insights from his amazing career on his personal Facebook page. If you can’t get enough Ronnie, his website (RonnieSchell.com) is a good place to find out more.
Stark Howell and Cort Howell (sons of Hoke Howell, Mayberry’s first Dud Wash) continue working to complete post-production work on Mayberry Man TV series after having almost wrapped up principal filming (there’s still one scene left to film in the spring). The series is set about a year after the final scene of the Mayberry Man movie and follow the lives of the characters we met in the movie. What? You haven’t seen the movie. You can pick up a DVD and other related items at Weaver’s Department Store. The series should be released sometime in the fall of 2023 but exactly what network it will be on is still in the works.
Mayberry Man DVD – Special SALE Price! – ($15)
Mayberry Man is about an arrogant movie star who is busted for speeding in a small southern town and sentenced to attend Mayberry Fest: a weeklong festival celebrating The Andy Griffith Show. Immersed in a modern-day Mayberry, he’s given a chance to discover the true meaning of friendship and family.
If you would like to have “Floyd” (Allan Newsome) autograph your DVD, just let Mr. Weaver know. Like water and air, there’s no charge for the autograph. (NOTE: To autograph the DVD will require the factory packaging to be opened.)
****Chapter News ****
Mayberry chapter (Knoxville, Tenn.) reports that they met on December 10th to have their annual Mayberry Chapter Christmas party to exchange gifts, have a meal and enjoy good conversation. The chapter also used the occasion to have an early celebration of the Dec 23rd birthday of Ronnie Schell. After a few busy signals caused by the Morrison sisters tying up the phone line, they got through to Ronnie and wished him a very happy birthday.
The chapter also produces a paper newsletter called Mayberry Minutes. The printed Mayberry Minutes is available for $20 for two or three 16 page issues per year or $10 for a pdf version. It has traditionally drawn on The eBullet for much of its news that’s not related directly to chapter activities, and it may continue that practice by tapping into Weaver’s Newsletter since The eBullet has ceased publication . If you like your Mayberry news on paper or as a pdf, Mayberry Minutes is a great option. For more info, contact editor Dennis Beal at KingOfMayberry@comcast.net.
Mayberry Cronies chapter (Sebring, Ohio and all over the place) reported in letting us know “The Boys & Girls at the Lab” are already busy in their Lab’s getting crafty things ready for a new Season of Mayberry events, making things for the Meet-Up and for Mayberry Day’s. Cronie Lab(s) are anticipating a busy year keeping up the tradition of inspiration by our Buddy, Dewey Lamb by creating Mayberry items for our Mayberry Friends & Family.
Blood Brothers (Marceline, Mo.) chapter turned 10 years old on February 7, so we’re having a birthday party on February 5. The “Brothers” enjoyed visiting, lunch, games like Pin the Badge on the Sheriff, Mayberry Musical Chairs, Pickle on a Spoon Race, and Mayberry Charades ending with drawings for door prizes. They’re already looking forward to our summer fried chicken dinner
Members of Mayberrry Goes Hollywood chapter made up of anyone who makes a trip to Hollywood, actually Burbank, Calif. for the Hollywood Show with Mike Creech. This time those that made the trip were from Mayberry’s Finest..No Interlopers Chapter (Avon, Ind.), “Mother Figure” Chapter (Huntsville, Ala.) and one of TAGSRWC’s longest chapter names ever, “Amazing! Only this Morning He Didn’t Know Which Side to Butter His Bread on and a Few Hours Later He’s a Genius! It Could Only Happen in America.” Chapter (Walhalla, S.C.). They were able to visit with Margaret Kerry and Clint Howard at the show. They also met up with Cort and Stark Howell (sons of Hoke Howell), Greg Schell (son of Ronnie Schell), and Kit McNear (son of Howard McNear, Mayberry’s barber). They tried to visit Franklin Canyon Reservoir, the location where the Myers Lake was filmed, but sadly the roads were closed because they were unsafe following the large amount of rain the area had experienced. Word has it that gypsies may have been involved in causing the rain.
That’s all our Chapter News for this issue. After taking over writing the newsletter, I’ll need your help in reporting on what’s happening in the chapters around the country, or the world as case maybe. We would LOVE to hear news from you about what chapters are up to. Please keep those chapter reports and photos coming to Floyd@imayberry.com and we’ll try and spread the word right here in Weaver’s Newsletter about what’s happening where you are.

**** In Memoriam ****
Remembering George Lindsey, Jr.
In mid-December 2022, Weaver’s received the shocking news that our friend George Lindsey, Jr. had passed away. George was a wonderful friend who would often call just to talk about what had been on “Svengoolie” (airs on MeTV on Saturday nights) that week or to see how things were going here at Weaver’s. I had talked with him just days before his December 13th passing so it was certainly unexpected.
Fans will miss seeing him honor his father by dressing in his “Goober” suit, telling jokes, singing, and playing the guitar during Col. Tim’s at Mayberry Days. He always made folks laugh and I’m sure that would be how he would want us to remember him, with a smile.
His sister, Camden, pinned a wonderful remembrance of George on his birthday (January 6),
Happy Birthday to my Dear brother Georgie! I love you!
I wanted to reached out to all of his friends and let you know how touched I was by your messages and phone calls. George was blessed with amazing friendships that lasted a lifetime.
George Anderson Lindsey aka George Lindsey, Jr., passed away in his home on December 13, 2022. We will miss him dearly but are thankful he will be embraced by his dad (George Smith Lindsey) and his mom (Azasha J. Lindsey), who preceded him in death.
George was born in New York City, moved on appropriately to Hollywood when he was two and then to the San Fernando Valley. As a child George loved to hang out with his friends, ride motorcycles, play guitar, and sketch. After George graduated high school he tried his hand at construction but soon learned his true love was performing.
He attended Texas Christian University where he studied theatre and made some lifelong friends. Also in Texas George was introduced to performing in Wild West gun fight shows; he spent many seasons entertaining countless audiences. He was constantly working on his craft by taking acting classes and performing in theatre all across the country, where again, he made wonderful friendships. George later settled in Oxnard, Calif. Throughout his career he also performed stand up comedy, and appeared in many musicals and plays.
George loved his family dearly. He always looked up to his father. He enjoyed their many practical jokes, participated in the George Lindsey Film Festival at UNA and performed at Mayberry Days. He also had a very close relationship with his mother whom he cared for until her last days.
He is survived by his sister, Camden Pancake, who loved him a great deal; brother-in-law, Joe Pancake; two nephews, Carson and Andrew Gardner, whom he loved very much; and his dog Sam who was a joy to him. George is-and always will be-a beloved son, dear brother, cherished uncle and much loved and faithful friend.
George Lindsey Jr. entertained us all, just by being George. He was loved by many and we will miss him deeply.
I think you’ll enjoy hear George tell his story in episodes #307 & #308 of the Two Chairs No Waiting podcast. The episodes were recorded when George joined Mayberry fans on the 9th Mayberry Cruise (2014) and had a great time visiting and sharing stories about his dad. The interview was recorded live in front of a audience of fans that George Jr. called “family.” That’s what it’s like being a Mayberry fan….we’re family, and George Jr. will be missed.
The Mayberry Rerun Watchers Guide: Season 1
by SpiritWalker ($24)
This is a book for the “trained noticer” in all of us. Even if you’re not a noticer, you’ll seem like one after reading all the keen observations in this book!
The Mayberry Rerun Watchers Guide: Season 1 is a detailed look at each episode, scene by scene. Even fans who have repeatedly watched the series will find themselves learning new facts about the show that they won’t be able to believe they never noticed before. The 316-page softcover book includes information on filming locations and the cast and crew. It is packed with trivia related to the first season.
Remember: No matter how much you learn about TAGS from this book, Mayberry knowledge “is a fine thing, but don’t flaunt it.” (Well, O.K., maybe flaunt it just a little.)
Mayberry Tea Towel ($14)
This fun, one-of-a-kind design is an exclusive for Weaver’s! It’s sure to make you smile as you’re reminded of some of your favorite episodes and characters. Kerosene Cucumbers? Blooey? Make a big moulage, Boy, giraffes are selfish, Dooley was a good ol’ man, haircuts at the barbershop, Opie the Birdman, Eagle-Eye Annie, Gertrude, the Haunted House–they’re all there, and more!
The oversized flour sack towel (27 in. x 27 in.) is made with premium, lint-free cotton and is printed in the USA. It’s machine washable, fade resistant, pre-washed and pre-shrunk. Best of all, it’s useful as well as ornamental!
**** Mayberry on the Web ****
The iMayberry Community
This TAGSRWC online group is organized and overseen by webmaster Allan “Floyd” Newsome with big help from Keith “Col. Harvey” Brown. You can check out the fun of this online community and sign up for free at: http://imayberrycommunity.com.
The iMayberry Community complements our other online activities, including our main www.imayberry.com page, podcasts, Facebook pages, online newsletters (such as The eBullet), weaversdepartmentstore.com and chat rooms.
“Two Chairs, No Waiting” is our weekly podcast of TAGS news, interviews and pretty much whatever’s happening in and around Mayberry. It’s hosted by Allan Newsome.
There’s a new episode every Tuesday (and you can watch and listen live during tapings on Monday evenings). As of this week, there have been a mind-boggling 722 episodes since Allan launched the podcast in October 2008. Past episodes are in an online Archives in case you want to listen to or view classic installments you’ve missed.
And scroll to the bottom of the main Mayberry Podcasts web page for various other links, including one for another outstanding Mayberry-related podcast: “Burke on Mayberry“ (hosted by TAGSRWC’s Kevin Burke since 2008). There are also links for the Mayberry Devotional hosted by Brian Rose and for the Mayberry Bible Study Podcast.
TAGSRWC’s official page on Facebook has over 250,000 Followers. You can find us at www.facebook.com/tagsrwc. If you haven’t already dropped by the page, we hope you’ll check it out sometime when you have the chance. We invite you to become a TAGSRWC Facebook Friend!
We also have links in our “Liked by this Page” section to the pages (in the “About” section) of several TAGSRWC chapters on Facebook, as well as to Facebook pages for Mayberry Days,® the Andy Griffith Museum, TAGS actors and others. Click “See All” to check out all the links.
Even Ben Weaver has his own Facebook page at www.facebook.com/weaversdepartmentstore. It features all the latest in Mayberry items and merchandise news.
And TAGSRWC also has a growing presence on www.MeWe.com. Mayberry’s pioneering outpost on MeWe is “Sittin’ on a Velvet Pillow” chapter, headed up by Lynn Thomas. That group was followed in short order by Allan Newsome and the “Two Chairs, No Waiting” Podcast and by “Only One Word I Can Think of…Big!” (a TAGSRWC group that’s also on Facebook), administered by Myron Clark and Tommy Rainwater and an able crew.
In case you’re not familiar with MeWe, it’s similar to Facebook a lot smaller and a bit more calm. It has no ads so it’s more along the lines of a quiet street like Willow or Woods Way as compared to the hustle and bustle of Main Street in downtown Mayberry. (“You’re on my foot! You’re on my foot!”) If you’re looking to “relax, slow down, take it easy,” then you might want to check out some of the TAGSRWC groups on MeWe.
