The Letter That Barney Wrote

After I posted Aunt Bee's quote about Barney's letter (characters from "The Andy Griffith Show) earlier this week, JarieLyn wondered what the letter said. We have the show on video, so I watched it again to make sure I had the words right.

Barney Fife is writing from Raleigh where he has moved to work as a detective in the police department. When the scene opens, Mayberry Sheriff Andy Taylor is reading the letter to Aunt Bee:

Things are going along swimmingly in the department. Do you remember Miss Clark? She was that sharp little number that sat at the desk as you entered. She and I have been getting a little chummy of late. As a matter of fact, I'm taking her to the policeman's ball. It's a masquerade. I'm going as Jack, and she's going as Jill. We wanted to do something different.

Well, that's all for now. Give my love to Opie, Aunt Bee and Helen.

Your Buddy,
That's when Aunt Bee says, "He writes a nice letter, doesn't he?" And Andy answers, "He sure does."

He certainly does write a good letter. I love the Andy Griffith show.

Thanks for posting the entire thing. It's so nice of you to go that extra mile for your readers. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.
