Howdy do to you and you!

Here’s something ErnestT.com fans would want to know about for certain.

Ernest T.’s real life son may not be throwing rocks but he is “playing” rock.

David Morris, son of Howard Morris, has been busy recording a solo rock album dedicated to his dad. Many folks won’t know that “Ernest T.” started out as a drummer and bought David a drum set  when he was about 10.

Dear friends,

Howard's MarkerIt is hard to believe that an entire year has passed since we lost the great Howard Morris, aka Ernest T. Bass, who died Saturday, May 21 2005.

I am at a loss for words on this day, but wanted to thank each of you for the wonderful posts, emails, and the incredibly moving messages so many of you left on Howard’s voicemail. You have no doubt made it clear that Howard has an extremely large family!

Sincerely,

Dear Friends,
The world has lost another incredible talent. The passing of the great Don Knotts is a gigantic shock.

When you consider the body of work and the sheer magnitude of his genius, many people would be surprised to learn how nice, gentle, and down to earth he was with everyone.

Don and my father, Howard, had become good friends over the years since appearing on The Andy Griffith Show. Howard was extremely fond of him. They worked together on and off screen. My father directed Don on The Andy Griffith Show, among others.

I met Don through my father many years ago. On a few occasions, I actually had the pleasure of driving Don to attend a monthly gathering of famous actors and comedians, a group my father had been a member of for many years. Well, when my pop introduced Don to the group, he became an instant “hit” and for obvious reasons Don was named as a lifetime member on the spot.

Over the years, we would meet up and travel together to attend various Mayberry events. Don was always very decent, and very funny. Don was quiet, and extremely smart. The fact is it takes an enormous amount of brains to realize, corral, refine, and ultimately present characters the way he did, delivering some of the funniest moments ever in the history of film and television.

Where does all of this lead to? Well, I have a sneaky feeling that Barney is once again chasing Ernest T., and that Ernest T. is driving Barney NUTS!

Don, we love and miss you!

Sincerely,
David Morris

Dear friends,
While reading through all the heartfelt messages so many of you posted on the memorial pages (no longer active), I have been trying to come up with a worthy equal as “thanks” for such an incredible outpouring of love, memories, and support.

Since his passing, I’ve not been able to turn off Howard’s home phone out of a fear of experiencing even more separation from him. Then it hit me. Why not give something back, and share more of him with you?

So, here it is, Howard’s actual home phone number. Feel free to leave a message for Howard if you like. I’m sure he would love it.

Howard Morris: 323-933-XXXX
