Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Remembering  Don Knotts.
It was on February 24th 2006 when the world lost a wonderful man. Mr. Knotts name at birth was Jesse Don Knotts  and he was born on July 21st 1924 in Morgantown, WV. He passed away at 81 years of age on February 24, 2006.

We were all sad to see Don Knotts leave us but I don’t want to dwell on remembering the day he passed so much as I want to celebrate the thing he did in life and the joy he continues to bring to millions each day through the character of Barney Fife.  Sure….there are other characters he played and he deserves credit for them as well but this is, after all, a Mayberry podcast so lets talk about “Barney.”

Don Knotts left this earth in 2006 but we will never be without the love, laughter, and joy that he continues to provide us all whenever we watch him perform or remember performances of the past.

Thank you Don Knotts for everything.

    Wow, it seem slike only yesterday. Some great links here too. Especially liked the video of him getting his star on Hollywood Blvd. It is so great that you took the time to get the interviews and stories of the stars of the show and saved them here for all of us to enjoy. We sure do miss ole Don
