Date of birth
My mother went to high school (Walker High School, Jasper AL) with George (Goober) Lindsey; according to her yearbooks he is one year older than her, and she was born in 1929. This article says George was born in 1935. I have no proof other than my mother's high school yearbooks, which also mention that his nickname was Goober while in high school.

I went to Florence State College the same time as George and I am sure he was a few years older than I. If he was born in 1935 he would have been 15 years old in 1950 when we were in FSC at the same time. That just cannot be as he was a running back on the football team.

I would like to edit the main article related to Goober's antics frequently included his exaggerated "Goober Dance" and his comically bad Cary Grant impression ("Judy, Judy, Judy"). I run Mayberry.com and am a huge fan and I have never heard of the "Goober Dance?" There are several things we could say that Goober did like sew up his finger or doing the "Chester" walk like Chester on Gun Smoke but the "Goober Dance" is not one of them. I will make that edit in the coming days if no discussion is received. Floydlawson (talk) 21:02, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
George Lindsey Steakhouses
When I was young, there was a George Lindsey Steakhouse on Nameoki Rd in Granite City, IL. Mr Lindsey's picture was hanging on the wall there, and the workers liked to tell about the time that Mr Lindsey himself came to Granite City to inspect the restaurant.
From what I gather, he once owned a chain of steakhouses but they went under at some point, probably in the mid to late 70's which is when I think the one in Granite City closed.
That was a good restaurant that I remember fondly. I can't find any references to the restaurant chain on the Internet, though, so I can't add any sourced material to this page. Does anyone have any information on the George Lindsey Steakhouse chain?
What should we do with the fair use photos?
Now that I found one photo from eBay that probably is no longer copyrighted, what should we do with the photo of Lindsey from 1982 with the cowboy hat and the color photo that's obviously a screenshot from the Griffith show? Andrewlp1991 (talk) 23:32, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
