Opie's Candy Store

Thelma Lou and Barney got married in 1986! The wedding of all weddings was in “Return To Mayberry.” As fans, we anxiously awaited the day when Barney would finally settle down and marry his sweetheart.💋 So if you missed it, your life is simply incomplete as far as “The Andy Griffith Show” goes and you need to see our beloved Barney marry his girl, Thelma Lou.❤️ You can meet the lovely Thelma Lou (Betty Lynn) on Friday, June 15 at the Andy Griffith Museum from 1:00-3:00pm. Admission: $8; Autographs: $10 #truelove #andygriffithmuseum #donknotts #barneyfife #bettylynn #thelmalou #love #happilyeverafter #sweethearts #visitmayberry #mountairync #visitnc ...
