It's me!! It's me!! It's Ernest T!!!!!
I wanted to tell y'all about new things going on with the site, and with myself. The past two years have been, let's just say pretty rough for me. I was in and out of the hospital for one thing or another about 8 times! The good news is I'm doing a whole lot better now. My site, ErnestT.com, was created so that I could share my experiences with y'all, the wonderful fans of Mayberry!
Well, now that I'm in far better shape, it's time to get things going!
So please visit us soon. Our goal is to create a simple and fun place to poke around and get a few laughs once in a while.
Nowadays, my son, David, is largely responsible for keeping the spirit of Ernest T. Bass alive. He is a proud son, and views my contribution to television as important events. His wish is to create an online museum of my career. He constantly nudges me about getting on the web to share what I've lived, and enjoy with all of you, my incredible fans.
So, to make a long story longer, here I am!!!
I'll be visiting and sharing some of the wonderful experiences I encountered while creating that wild character, Ernest T. Bass!
I'll occasionally write about what it was like working with such a wonderful cast. When I can, I will answer your questions, so please post 'em in our NEW message-board. (www.ernestt.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl )
** Every once in a while, we offer rare Ernest T. collectables and gifts. **
Over the years we've received a ton of requests for unique gifts. So, we came up with something special for the holidays. For a limited time, we are making 500 cement hand imprints. I'm actually pressing both of my hands into 500 cement plaques! Each plaque individually pressed with my hands, and signed by me!
It's quite a job as these are not easy to do. But to make something special, sometimes you have to go to great lengths, and get a little dirty!
These are truly limited edition collectors items. To own one is a rare privilege that will bring prestige to any Mayberry collection.
Plus, we are giving away some other bonus gifts to round out the deal, only available on ErnestT.com
Aside from collectables, we truly need your involvement to make this site a success!
So join me! Share some stories, ask some questions, and just have some fun!
