Except it's July and the episode is all about whether Andy/Helen and Barney/Thelma Lou are engaged.
Andy Taylor: Andy lived in Mayberry all his life, having attended and graduated from Mayberry Union High School. Little is known of his early life other than he fact that he was raised, in part by Aunt Bee. Little is know of his marriage as well. In the only reference to his wife: he confides in Opie that they had that " special can of love: that only soul mates have. Andy enjoys the outdoors. He would just as well go camping out as travel for a vacation. He loves to hunt, shoot *** and go fishing. While at home Andy enjoys playing the guitar sitting on the front porch visiting, and reading the Mayberry Gazette or the National Geographic. Andy works hard at his job as Sheriff,but her makes time for family and special friends. Andy had many favorite food including Leg of Lamb, Fried Chicken and. One of the most notable topics of conversation about Andy is prehaps his long list of Lady Friends. Ellie Walker, Thelma Lou's cousin Karne, County Nurse Mary and Mary Simpson, Peggy McMillan, Fund Girl Daphne ...
If Eufaula were Mayberry Andy would get a mile long 5 inch wide roll of traffic yellow linoleum and split the existing lanes during holiday weekends. After all the existing width is much wider than the highways we baby boomers grew up driving on. Then he would have Barney (who would not be happy) Gomer, Goober and Otis addressing problem intersections to facilitate movement. Helen and Thelma Lou could monitor traffic counts to see if the extra lanes moved more traffic or if the traffic lights happened to be the problem. They could all get together after the holiday and discuss what they learned and make appropriate informed action. Barney would certainly point out that big trucks do not have enough room to travel abreast to which Andy would say trucks can straddle the line for a mile with out much trouble. After the holiday Opie and his friends could use the existing extra width to ride bikes in the shade or stop and take photos of the historic properties like so many have done for years. I for one am gon ...

Old School Face Bookers ones who watched Andy Griffith as a child. ? What was Thelma Lou's Occupation ? Barney's Girlfriend. She was always there at lunch and always there to go on dates in the evening, I think she was Mayberry's Madam or Town Escort of sorts. Don't believe the writers ever gave her a job :-)

Mary Grace Canfield, who played Thelma Lou's cousin Mary Grace on The Andy Griffith Show, has passed away.
RIP Mary Grace Canfield...I know that most of you are wondering who Mary Grace Canfield is...She was on 'The Andy Griffith Show' and played Thelma Lou's cousin who went on a blind date with Gomer Pyle. A few years later, she played 'Ralph Monroe' who was a sister to 'Alf Monroe' and they spent YEARS remodeling Mr. and Mrs. Douglas' Green Acres home!!
Looking forward to that pan of cashew fudge with Thelma Lou tonight.
And she play Thelma Lou cousin on The Andy Griffith Show
R.I.P. Mary Grace Canfield That name might not sound familiar to you (it didn't to me), but if you watched that 1960's-early 1970's situation comedy "Green Acres", you have seen her. Remember the Brothers Ralph and one of them was a girl? That was Mary Grace Canfield. She was the female Ralph. Not blessed with beauty, she did get plenty of work on TV. Her most sustaining role was as the female Ralph, but she also played a Plain Jane on an episode of "The Andy Griffith Show". As I recall, she was on show in which she played a friend of Thelma Lou. Andy and Barney conned Goober into going out with her. Goober went to go get her a corsage like Thelma Lou and Helen and all assumed that he had ditched her, but he hadn't. She was 89. Good-Bye, Mary Grace. :(
Mary Grace Canfield (September 3, 1924 – February 15, 2014). Best known for her character Ralph Monroe in the TV show "Green Acres," Mary Grace also appeared as a character actress in many other TV shows back in the '60s. In "The Andy Griffith Show" she portrayed Thelma Lou's cousin Mary Grace. Here she is with Jim Nabors (Gomer Pyle) in a scene from one of the episodes she appeared in.
RIP Mary Grace. I watched Green Acres and Andy Griffith many many times and still do. Until now, I never put Ralph on Green Acres and Gomer Pyle's blind date, Mary Grace, together as the same actress. Mary Grace was socially awkward just like Gomer and everyone thought the blind date had gone bad but found out later that evening that even though Thelma Lou was mad at Barney and Helen was mad at Andy, Gomer and Mary Grace were jitterbugging up a storm back at the house.
What a sad day ! Ralph Monroe, the female brother of The Monroe Brothers, the brother/sister carpenter team on Green Acres, has passed away at age 89. For you Andy Griffith fans, she also played Mary Grace, the homely cousin of Thelma Lou, who Gomer had a date with and then had the famous dance scene with at Thelma Lou's house. I think Eb is the only surviving member of Green Acres.
I also loved the episode of Andy Griffith where she played a cousin of Thelma Lou (Barney's gf). She enjoyed a date and a dance with Gomer Pyle. :) Wonderful actress.
Does anybody remember back in the 60's the picture of "thelma lou" that circulated around mt.hhs This looks like a relative ...lol
I've got one smart cat. after saying her new name lots I think "Thelma Lou" has learned her name. She looks when I call her name and has been following me around and laying with me @ my desk.

One of the most beloved sitcoms of all is THE Andy Griffith Show. Created by Sheldon Leonard, and spinoff from MAKE ROOM FOR DADDY, the show revolved around Andy Taylor (Griffith), his Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier) and son Opie (Ronny Howard - yes, THAT Ron(ny) Howard!) and Andy's job as Sherriff of the little North Carolina town, Mayberry. That set the stage for many hilarious episodes with classic characters, none more entertaining than Don Knotts, as wannabe tough guy lawman, Barney Fife! Barney was also a Playboy wannabe, always trying to hook up with Juanita the waitress, but he loved his Thelma Lou (Betty Lynn) best of all. Andy had quite a few dates before he found Helen Crump (Aneta Corsaut) whom he would eventually marry. Then there are Otis, the town drunk (Hal Smith), Floyd the chatty Barber (Howard McNear), pump jockey Gomer Pyle (Jim Nabors, who would spin off into Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C.), Gomer's motorhead cousin, Goober (George Lindsey), The Darlings (The Dillards), a mountain family who make wond ...
I really like you Thelma Lou...why you're the cat's... --Lady Killer Barney Fife
I'm always cute. :') it's in my nature. Lou = born cute... and I forgot you're the Thelma to my Louise! (very important!)
Otis & Thelma Lou are learning to play fetch.
There a two month old bulldog at work and her name is Thelma Lou 😍😍
Gee, it's too bad they're already responding to Otis and Thelma Lou.
Ha! And more to the point, it's not Thelma and Lou.
Will miss the pics of Thelma Lou, but at least she'll still be kicking it around on the farm. How long of a drive do you got?
The more I watch The Andy Griffith Show, the more I realize that Barney Fife was a *** He had his longtime girlfriend Thelma Lou (who he never proposed to so he basically wasted her time) AND he was cheating on her with Juanita, the waitress from the diner. It took me 31 years to realize this...
If I left Thelma Lou in Hawaii while I headed to Washington I don't know that the people would think Yes I do thats trouble plane and simple
Apparently Thelma Lou is a fan of Mary Poppins
Lou Teasdale won't be working with the lads until April.
I liked the old Andy Griffith Show: Andy, Barney, Opie and Aunt Bee, along with Floyd, Goober, Otis and Ernest T., just some of my favorite characters I watched on TV. Of course, there were the Darlings and Gomer, too, and, as memorable, Barney's girl, Thelma Lou. These icons of the Andy Griffith Show take me back to an era we never again will know. This show represents what I long for today, sadly, most of those good times long ago went away. Back to a time when I had few worries in mind, to a time, once again, where I could leave my problems behind. I will never forget watching those wonderful shows and of a time and a place where my mind often goes.
don't forget when Lou Gossett Jr was on there getting his R. Kelly on with Thelma.
Gimme Thelma Lou all day long. Now that was a woman!
Sounded really traumatic for Thelma Lou. Bunny had to go.
It was pretty traumatic for Thelma Lou - and Bunny probably didn't like getting bit. Everyone is happier now...

Thelma Lou is Barney's main girlfriend until his 1965 departure.
True. Maybe Thelma Lou would be better as Carol.
Thelma Lou as comic Andrea, because Thelma Lou would be a bad ***
Happy Birthday Don Knotts A fellow we called Barney Fife Never took Thelma Lou for his wife With his uneven keel And irrational zeal He screwed up every day of his life In Mayberry Barney resided Where protection from crime he provided With much verve he was fraught But more often than not His approach to his job was misguided His buddy and boss, Andy Taylor Was a Justice as well as a jailer His girlfriend named Helen Taught readin’ and spellin’ And never allowed him to nail ‘er Andy’s son, little Opie, was cute Otis Campbell, a drunk, was a hoot Floyd cut hair every week Gomer Pyle was a geek Every Sunday they all wore a suit Aunt Bee lived with Opie and Andy And always was sweeter than candy Howard Sprague had a brain Ernest T. was insane But regarded himself as a dandy But as Barney, Don Knotts stole the show And he caused the producers to glow As the ratings went high For a town that was dry So no liquor could legally flow Many movies he also was in Like Rock Hudson and Anthony Quinn In his fi ...

Just got back from Mt. Airy, NC Mayberry Festival. What a great Festival and trip that was. Anybody that remembers the great old movies and TV shows should make this a "must do" trip. Meet James Best (Roscoe) in the Dukes of Hazzard who was in one segment of Mayberry. He has been in the older movies and TV shows for over 65 years. It's was lifetime chance to meet and talk with him. He is 87 years old and still in good health and does the Roscoe laugh same as he did in the TV show. Here are some pictures. The woman in the wheel chair is Thelma Lou, Barney's girl friend. James Best played along side a whole host of great actors and was in the old great western movies. Played along side Bert Reynolds in Hooper, twilight Zone and several other TV shows and series.

Thank you moma for giving me life. You are truly missed but being with JESUS is a lot better than being here. We know that you loved us dearly. I should have thought of the name Brittney gave her aunt, Bestest, because you were the bestest mom anyone could ever have. I'm glad I gave you flowers will you were here, it makes life so much better. I don't have to cry and wonder in shoulda coulda woulda land. Thanks also to Pastor Michael D. Moore's book WEEP NOT. Shares a great message on when love ones leave us. Thank you moma for all the memories you gave me. I love you very much Thelma Lou. If you were here your answer would be, I love you too Susie Q
Andy likes to relax on the front porch..the only sounds are crickets and the clicks of Barney texting Thelma Lou.
What did Thelma Lou see in Barney anyway? He was clearly punching above his weight. Anybody got a line on that one?

I miss my Gma Thelma Lou, Pa, and Nana like crazy,
Doesn't get much better than taking two little girls to Mayberry Days when they are in love with Andy and Barney! Had an awesome day and Betty Lynn (Thelma Lou) has got to be the sweetest lady I've ever met - and I've now met her twice. Also met Maggie Peterson for the first time - aka Charlene Darlin'. Sophia also got to drink Sprite out of a glass bottle for the first time! Now off to bed... it's not easy getting from Mebane to Mayberry for a 9:00 parade!
Thinking of my friends Betty Lynn "Thelma Lou" and Maggie Peterson "Charlene Darling" as they enjoy another great Mayberry Days Weekend in Mt. Airy, NC. Love both of these ladies very much!
Headed to Mayberry , have a great weekend going to see Barney and Otis , run in to Thelma Lou , Charlene . Pork Chop Sandwich / Necterine Crush !
There's Betty Lynn who played Thelma Lou on Andy Griffith. I was going to see her last week but she was ill.
Mayberry Days is here in Mount Airy, NC this weekend. Thelma Lou lives here now, and others from the show are here for the "fun". Fake Barney, Floyd, Otis and Goober will be running around causing trouble. Me, I'm staying out of downtown, don't want to get hit by rocks from Ernest T. Bass and such. If Bluegrass is your thing, it's here along with a lot of other stuff. This year they even have a BEER Garden.
Rescuers cry a lot. Not many times its a happy cry. This is one of those. Spudman, who we took in from our vets, about 2 yrs ago. He shared a pen with Thelma Lou, who was adopted by one of the Lumberjack Angels. Spud was adopted by a wonderful family, and i cant tell you how much this Pic means to me. It means we were able to make a difference. Thank you so much for sharing. This made my day!
They were putting on a show. Thelma Lou is still deciding if she likes cats...
Thelma Lou leading a game of Simon Says.
We just watched a George Raft movie. Barnie and Thelma Lou didn't come over, though.
What has Barney got to say about his "big blow up" with Thelma Lou? Barney: "I DON'T WANNA TALK ABOUT IT!" But we ALL know that in the next scene they were back together...for awhile anyway ;)
wow I have such an exciting life. the high lite of my day was watching barney and Thelma lou getting in a fight while I was eating my lime jello with fruit cocktail in it. thank goodness im not a longhorn or cowboys fan or I could be suicidle?
Helen and Thelma Lou were just so much more grounded.
When Andy said, "I'mah goina take Thelma Lou to Mount Pilot fer Supper a come Sat-ur-de Nite", this is where he...
Thelma-Lou from The Andy Griffith Show was so hot!
Captain Hook's life is even better, Thelma Lou is at least asked to work every once in awhile. The cats just sleep all day.
Captain Hook and Thelma Lou are so cute. We need a dog's life and just hang and nap. So cute.
One of the cutest photos I've taken - even if not from the best angle. Captain Hook & Thelma Lou, napping.
R U & Thelma Lou the only living characters from “Andy Griffith Show”? I love that show!
Oops, forgot to share this with you yesterday about our birthday girl, Thelma Lou. .

Happy Birthday to Thelma Lou. But don't let Barney sing! Actress Betty Lynn is 87 today. Way to go, Thel.
Drum Roll please, Let me take you back to a quiet time in America to small town USA, where Aunt Bee made awful pickles, Andy and Opie, Deputy Barney Fife, who could talk to animals in fact when Opie killed a mother bird and raised three babies he named Winkin, Blinkin and Nod he asked Andy how do we know when they can fly and Andy said Winkin will tell Blinkin and he'll tell Nod and Nod will tell Barney and he'll tell us. A simple time where Floyd the Barber held court and Otis the town drunk locked himself up and Ernest T. Bass broke windows, and Gomer and Goober Pyle ran the service station. This show will be watched for as long as people are on this earth. Thelma Lou and Miss Crump, the Good Time Girls "Hello Doll), the Darling Family, the three women convicts who captured Floyd and Barney, it goes on and on and when Opie was in love but the little girl didn't seem to care and Barney said he used to offer a girl a bite of his snow cone but she'd bite off the end suck out the juice and give him the i .. ...
Went to the Andy Griffith Museum today with David LaTorre, Davis Herndon, and Jon LaTorre and got a photo of Barney Fife and Thelma Lou signed by Betty Lynn!
Thelma Lou brought her babies to join me for breakfast. Their names are Opie, Andy, Floyd and Barney Jr. Love my ducks!
Brosie Moorehead ... If your Barney Fife, then I guess I am Thelma Lou... LOL :). I love you.
Tonight I was able to celebrate with some of my family & Thelma at her senior living's western party…
Come meet Mayberry's sweetheart Betty Lynn (aka Thelma Lou) this Friday, April 19th at the Andy Griffith Museum...
Bouta be out here in these streets with Thelma Lou today
Happy Bday Thelma Lou. Another consecutive year as the undisputed twerk champion in the books! Well done
Having dinner and drinks with Thelma Lou...
Everything's worked out with Helen, Barney, and Thelma Lou. Going to the Diner tonight for the steak sandwich special (soup & salad).
Barney tells Thelma Lou I said maybe she's not right for him (which I didn't), Helen calls TL childish, and everyone ends up sour with me.
Thelma Lou is one good looking pup. :o)
what did Thelma Lou do for a living? Barney lived in a boarding house, she lived in a 2 story by herself. What gives?
i really can't help but rock. smh. thanks Thelma Lou. lol. 😏 R.I.P Angel. 😘🙏👼
He left that back in Mount Pilot with Thelma Lou...
“Thelma Lou is having nightmares 😥my poor baby!” She didn't walk in circles before goin to sleep!
The rooster doesn't like his hens being in the goat pen with Thelma Lou.
I will miss you always mom ,Happy Birthday I Love You!
Thelma Lou is flattered, but spoken for.
"The human body has no more need for cow's milk than it does for dog's milk, horse's milk, or giraffe's milk" - Michael Klaper, MD. Milk Slavery Calves are removed from their mothers at birth in order to take their baby's milk for adult humans. This is traumatic for both mother and child who cry for days. The calves are placed in a small "veal crate" with no bedding where they cannot turn around or frolic nor see their mother again. They are fed watered down milk. Dairy calfs (mostly males) are killed at birth or at three months. They are an unwanted by-product of the dairy industry. Sometimes when veal prices go down, the bodies of calves are dumped instead of trucked to slaughter. Preventing the calves from exercising is to keep their muscles soft for quality veal. Sometimes they are fed a "special diet" devoid of iron for extra white meat. Desperate for iron, calves will suck at the metal bars. In New Zealand where 30% of the world's milk is produced, dairy cows are routinely induced into early la ...
I wanna live in Mayberry.Floyd and. I would for sure party every night.we might have Barney over every now and then to get him trashed.and Thelma Lou is mine.
Thelma Lou, my beautiful turned 2 yesterday. Somehow I forgot all about...
For an update to all who's prayers and thoughts for my cousin and the family of Mary Lou Buchanan Condee of Portsmouth Va.My news tonight was worse on her condition and the Dr now is saying there is no hope except a matter of time so the family including myself is getting our clothes packed to take off again to another emotional get together with family.It is so *** my Aunt Thelma because this is her only girl out of 8 kids and has lost 1/2 her children after this loss coming upon.Please keep the family and especially my Aunt Thelma (mommy's sister of 88yrs) in your prayers and Mary Lou's 3 brothers left who has stayed by her side and her daughters and grandchildren staying at ICU for the past 3 wks. watching her go from serious,to critical,then a little improvement about 5-6 days ago ,then back to critical with what Dr is saying now ,just a matter of time. She is only 53.blonde hair blue eyes .We were all glad to see her come along because Aunt Thelma wouldn't stop till that little girl came along af ...
Watching Good Times. It's the episode when James gave back that money he found. As poor as they were, I'm still angry at him.
*** shame I was watching GOOD TIMES , Thelma was a *** she was always getting married or falling n love, Even back then we was getting stereotyped. Ijs...hot *** Thelma...lmao
Watching a Good Times marathon... how many times was Thelma engaged?? She's like Kandy... she has no problem getting a ring! LOL
As Lyle Worman said, "Bowie is gonna take Thelma Lou to the picture show".
My homemade beans came out alot better this time :) Thank you Cathy Hall for Aunt Almas recipe :)
Her name is Luna, but we're thinking about calling her Ruby. Thelma's full name is Thelma Louise Bendig, so we call her Thelma Lou or Lou Belle, so Luna is too close to that and could confuse them. So we're thinking either Ruby or Rosie, or perhaps Betty.
Whether you're straight out of college or starting a new career path, that first job can be scary is. You might think you know the ropes, but it's a lot more than just getting your work done.
yep! The FUN girls are much more fun than boring old Thelma Lou & what's her name (Andy's main squeeze) lol
Laura Frazzini Reed I finally remembered the name of the store at 29th and Cherry - Manendo's Market.
Dr appt stress test gives u more stress thinking about it hopefully every thing comes out good have a great day every one love ya
