Annie Gray Johnston

Commentator

Annie Gray Johnston is wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, and general nut. She tries to be a good citizen by doing a few good deeds, knowing that good deeds do not get you into heaven, but not taking any chances either.  A native Wilmingtonian, she is related to many but only claims a few. She is not particularly accomplished in any area except promotions (of herself and of special events, usually those she attends). She can’t dance or sing, but loves a microphone and validation because she received no attention as a middle child. If she had to be someone else, it would be a living Allen Funt.

Bald Men Rule

There's nothing like a man who grows bald gracefully.

Mayberry Is Sacred

Annie Gray Johnston

No one who knows Commentator Annie Gray Johnston would call her stuck in her ways. She keeps up with the new and improved with the best of them, swishy iPad and all. But there are some things that can't be altered or updated, no matter what. For Annie Gray, The Andy Griffith Show and the mythical town of Mayberry, are sacred.
