    We have lost another great talent from the Andy Griffith Show. Who could not forget Goober’s ” Judy Judy Judy” imitation of Cary Grant? The “Forty Acre” parcel is long gone, and so are many of the Stars who worked there. Goober’s station ,”Wally’s”, will always be in my mind a place to hang out with the gang and buy a soda in a bottle. Too bad the 40 acre set had to give way for “progress”. What an attraction that would be today! God bless you George, and also your family. Say hi to Aunt Bea and the others!!!!!
