Andy Griffith Movie

As we all know Hollywood has run out of ideas.  All movies made within the past five years (Except for Apollo 13 and Yogi Bear) have been based on comics books, or some other kind of book.  However, I think that the movie studios should mine the great TV shows of years ago to produce dynamic dramatic movies.  These TV shows from our childhood are tried and true and proven winners.

To help in this endeavor I want to pass along the idea to make an Andy Griffith (Live Action) Movie.  I even have done the casting for them.

Andy Griffith:  Mark Ruffalo

Barny Fife: Aziz Ansari

Aunt Bea:  Ferggie (will need old people make up, but now as much as you might think)

Floyd the Barber: Sean Hayes

Fuel for the Fire

Some people say that anger is the best medicine and I’m inclined to agree.  I got real angry when after enjoying a long splendid summer with my money tree; I had to chop it down for firewood in the winter.  Why didn’t I buy firewood with all that money I burned?  Oh well lesson learned and you can’t put a price on that.  Here’s the lesson:  if you have money tree and you are just rolling in gobs and gobs of money, put a little back for a rainy day.  Because when it’s raining and you need a fire, having dry wads of money really comes in handy.

Look What I Found

Great news!  I was walking along the street just this morning minding my own business, when I look down and see an old toothbrush lodged in the street drain.  It was filthy, but I wasn’t deterred.  It took me four hours, three pieces of gum, a coat hanger and an old bone (chicken or pigeon I think) to snare the toothbrush from the drain.

I was elated with my new (old) toothbrush.  Now before you panic, don’t worry I’m not going to use this old toothbrush to brush my teeth.  I’m going to use it to clean things around the house.  Like my current toothbrush.

Raccoon Talk

Predator vs. Rabbits

Wagon Tracks

Along the way she watched the landscape pass by and recede into the distance. She sat on the back of the wagon and bounced along with as it lumbered over old trails and new ones they made on their way through the “Land of Prairies” as Succotash Joe called it. She was enjoying the trip and while a little sore and tired, this journey was the new beginning she’d been dreaming about. A new life awaited her in the next village just over the hill. She worried that she would forget everything she learned in pioneer school, but the old scouts said she’d remember what she needed to know when the time came. She smiled a wry smile and then fell off the wagon into the prairie mud.

Rugs and Other Metaphors

Sometimes I feel like I have had the rug pulled out from under me and a pillow case put over my head and then I’m being hit in the head with a sock with a bar of soap in it. Or it could just be another pillow case with a bar of soap in it. I can’t see that well because my head is covered and I’m feeling woozy. Of course I’m being metaphoric, except for the part about feeling woozy.Youre-toast-and-other-metaphors-we-adore
