The Foreclosure Process - Andy Griffith Style!

If only folks who fall behind on their mortgage

could work things out this simply...

Andy Griffith serves a foreclosure notice.....

If you find yourself in this predicament, and you don't live in Mayberry, contact a lender or a Realtor to show you what options might be available to you...and, hopefully, mean old Andy Griffith won't come knocking on your door!

Richard - Thank you Richard. I thought the message was worthy of sharing.

Toula - Remember, my quest is to visit every web site ever created! I do the research so you don't have to!!!

Larry - Ever been to the Andy Griffith museum? It is, like you mentioned, close to you!

Endre - Oh, things have changed just a little bit since the days of Mayberry!

Caren - How could you remember that episode? You were only 3 when it aired!!!!

Ellie - So funny! I guess it's true that you never know where I might pop up! I'm going to have to figure a way to "edit" videos......Hmmm. A new project to add to my list of plenty!

Kristin - Thank you Kristin! I guess that bump on the head at such an early age did me good!!!

Well things were a lot simpler back then, or at least they seemed to be.  That show is quite a classic.
