    Nabors was always well liked and never tried to force anyone to like or dislike his lifestyle. Only two survivors now from the Mayberry series and that would be Opie and the brother who played the little boy who was always eating a sandwich and wearing a cowboy hat, I think they called him Leon but my memory is getting bad now.

    Apparently being the wife/girlfriend of Andy was a long life indicator. Both Betty Lynn and Elinor Donahue are around and in their 80s.

    Ron Howard’s real-life brother, Clint Howard, played the peanut-butter-sandwich-chomping Leon and is still kicking.

    He was a fixture at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for years. It was always a sign of Summer arriving, hearing him sing: Back Home In Indiana in his opera-quality tenor voice.

    I remember hearing him sing Christmas carols when I was young,even enjoyed them. My mother bought several records of his songs.

    Wonderful voice!

    Clint Howard has kind of made a career out of joking about being Ron's less successful brother.

    And yet he's been in some rather successful TV shows. He was in the wildly popular Star Trek:TOS episode The Corbomite Maneuver. Of course he was the lead in the series Gentle Ben. He turned into a rather good character actor.

    We've been watching Gomer Pyle all evening, I had forgotten how funny that show was.
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB
