The Andy Griffith Show's Mayberry is America's friendliest town. "You gotta understand," says Barney, "this is a small town. The sheriff is more than just a sheriff. He's a friend. The people in this town ain't got no better friend than Andy Taylor."
I'm Proud to Call You My Friend is a gift book containing meaningful quotations and carefully chosen pictures from The Andy Griffith Show that celebrate the warmth and loyalty that comes with true friendship. And everyone is a friend in Mayberry - Andy and Barney, Goober and Gomer, Floyd and Howard Sprague, Aunt Bee and Clara, Helen Crump and Thelma Lou.
Goober: "A man's best friend is not his dog - it's people."
Floyd: "Ooh, you really get to the meat of things, Goober."
Goober: "'Course, I still love dogs."
I'm Proud to Call You My Friend is a wonderful gift for anyone you are proud to call your friend - and want to tell them so.
