TCNW 621: A Punch in the Nose and Schwamp

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:34:48

I was watching The Andy Griffith Show today and the episode “The Case of the Punch in the Nose” was on. I started laughing and smiling right from the start and so I wanted to talk about it with you. That’s one of the things I love about doing this show, being able to talk about what I love about The Andy Griffith Show with you.

I also wanted to let you know about a fellow named Dave Sundstrom and his YouTube videos about Mayberry. He has several but one of his latest ones is about Mr. Schwamp. I’ll address a few things about his video and make sure folks know all that’s known about Mystery Man Mr. Schwamp.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Sheldon Leonard” Part 1.

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:38:08

Looking back, the last episode I dedicated to listener feedback was almost a year ago in Two Chairs #577 (April 14, 2020). I’ve been trying to fit feedback into portions of other episodes in the mean time but I thought it was time to focus and hear from you.

We have a lot of written feedback from YouTube and the TwoChairsNoWaiting.com website for this show and on bit of voicemail as well. Topics vary but they’re all Mayberry so lets have some fun!

TCNW 619: Real Men of Genius

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:28.21

The actors, actresses, and writers of The Andy Griffith Show were most certainly genius in their craft. Some characters only appeared in a very few episodes of The Andy Griffith Show but their impact has made fans feel like they were in most every episode. That’s the genius of the show. Mayberry is like a “real” place to the fans and the people there are always around, even if we don’t always see them.

Isn’t that amazing? That we feel like the entire town is populated with all the townsfolk even when in many episodes we only see five or six of them. Genius is what it is.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Howard McNear Part 2.”

TCNW 618: Mayberry Outreach

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:25:52

On episode 615, I talked about the world needing more Mayberry so this week I wanted to challenge us all to try and spread that Mayberry spirit to others. I know that I’ve been blessed by folks reaching out to me and just saying, “I was thinking about you” so what would happen if all of us did that?

In Mayberry, folks checked on their neighbors when they hadn’t heard from them in a while. They’d drop by to see how they were doing or maybe have Sarah phone them so they could make sure they were okay. We have so many ways to communicate with each other these days and yet we still find reasons not to take time and do just that.

Let’s try and see what impact we might have on our friends and family if we act a little more like we’re from a small town.

We also share a laugh from Mayberry Days 2004 with a short clip of The Mayberry Deputy and Floyd killing time on stage before the start of the VW Boys concert.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Howard McNear Part 1.”

TCNW 617: Bailey’s Bad Boy

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:28:03

The “This Week in Mayberry History” report inspired me to look into the episode “Bailey’s Bad Boy” more closely. We see Opie learn a lesson about paying his own way. When he makes a mistake, he needs to stand on his own two feet and meet the responsibility associated with what he’s done.

This is an episode that we may be able to learn from and Ron Bailey certainly did. How many shows today have the courage to express the opinion that having everything given to someone, while generous, may not be for the best in the long term. I can’t really think of any. Thank goodness for the lessons of The Andy Griffith Show.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Bill Bixby.”

The eBullet Newsletter for January 2021 is on the web so it’s time for us to look at some of the highlights.

TCNW 615: The World Needs More Mayberry

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:28:40

When the precursor to iMayberry.com began back in 1991, it was partially as a way to deal with the uncertainty of the time. The aerial bombardment of Iraq in had begun in Operation Desert Storm or as many call it, the First Gulf War. It was a stressful time for our country. News reports of what was happening in the war region was continuous and it was hard to get my mind off of what was going on. My biggest release was the half hour or so I spent each day visiting “Mayberry.”

I would log on the computer and as I visited with my Mayberry friends, I was able to forget the worlds troubles and smile. I thank the good Lord for those friends and how they ministered to me by just being friendly and sharing a laugh with me through that time of stress.

We need that today, just like back in 1991. Actually, we’ve needed it in all the time in-between because there is always stress. It is friends and relationships that are really important in our lives. Let’s spend a little time together in Mayberry and recharge our spirit. Focus on what’s really important and grow our friendships and relationships because in the years to come, that’s what will make “the trees nice and full.”

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.”
