Coming up later today... for Southern Celebrity Sunday...
This Southern Celebrity is famous for his role as one comedian in a two man team. He is from Georgia and led a very interesting life. I'll write more about him later. Who do you think it is?

Andy Griffith was born in Mount Airy, North Carolina. Recently we have been watching Seasons 1 & 2 of "The Andy Griffith Show". I loved it as a child, but now it is even better because I understand all the jokes and references. I also love listening to their Southern dialect. It sounds just like my TN dialect.
Andy Griffith has had an interesting life. He has been an English teacher, stand up comedian and trombone player. He began his studies in college to be a minister, but switched his major to music.

Did you watch "The Andy Griffith Show" or "Matlock"? I grew up with "The Andy Griffith Show", but never really got into watching "Matlock".
