On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Plot Overview

Aunt Bee comes to realize that she hasn't accomplished much in her life. At a dinner for family and friends, everyone has a story to tell or an accomplishment to brag about. She just wishes that she could do something that was unique and that she could talk about. To everyone's surprise, especially Andy, she decides to take flying lessons. Andy is certain that she will never go through with it but she perseveres, determined to make a go of it. When it comes time to solo however, she begins to have second thoughts.
