You Can't See the Trees for the Forest

What does that really mean? It means when you are too close to the issue you can't see the bigger picture. I discovered this recently when I was at a garage sale and met someone working for this amazing tree service company.

I couldn't see this little book called Where's Goldie among the hundreds of books on the table.

I've written about this tiny Little Golden Book before on this blog back in 2007. You can read about it here.

Funny how a guy from a local tree service company helped me find a book that I am able to flip for a good chunk of money!

Andy Griffith's Death

Andy Griffith's death is just another example of the ups and downs of Ebay sales. Looking at the completed listings for anything Andy Griffith, you can see there is quite a lot of selling going on.  Sales such as this usually spike shortly after the person's death and then trickle off about 6 months later.

What's really interesting is this DVD set.  Although you can buy it on Amazon starting at around $95, a lot of folks are buying it on Ebay.  A DVD set such as this one could easily be found tucked away at a thrift store or garage sale.

For those of you who would like a little history lesson, here is some information about the Andy Griffith show courtesy of Wikipedia.


The Andy Griffith Show (1960–1968)


Beginning in 1960, Griffith starred as Sheriff Andy Taylor in The Andy Griffith Show for CBS.  The show took place in the fictional town of Mayberry, North Carolina, where Taylor, a widower, was the sheriff and town sage. The show was filmed at Desilu Studios, with exteriors filmed at Forty Acres in Culver City, California.

From 1960 to 1965, the show co-starred character actor and comedian — and Griffith's longtime friend —  Don Knotts in the role of Deputy Barney Fife. Taylor's best friend and partner. He was also Taylor's cousin in the show. In the series premiere episode, in a conversation between the two, Fife calls Taylor "Cousin Andy", and Taylor calls Fife "Cousin Barney". The show also starred child actor Ron Howard (then known as Ronny Howard), who played Taylor's only child, Opie Taylor.

It was an immediate hit. Although Griffith never received a writing credit for the show, he worked on the development of every script. While Knotts was frequently lauded and won multiple Emmy Awards for his comedic performances (as did Frances Bavier in 1967), Griffith was never nominated for an Emmy Award during the show's run.

In 1967, Griffith was under contract with CBS to do one more season of the show. However, he decided to quit the show to pursue a movie career and other projects. The series continued as Mayberry R.F.D., with Ken Berry starring as a widower farmer and many of the regular characters recurring, some regularly and some as guest appearances. Griffith served as executive producer (according to Griffith, he came in once a week to review the week's scripts and give input) and guest starred in five episodes (the pilot episode involved his marriage to Helen Crump.  He made final appearances as Taylor in the 1986 reunion television film, Return to Mayberry, and in two reunion specials in 1993 and 2003 with strong ratings.
