After watching a documentary on television, Howard decides to pack it all in and move to a Caribbean island and take up the life of beachcomber. Most people think he's gone off his rocker but some think he's taking a brave step and hope it all works out for him. He quits his job as County Clerk and soon sets off. He finds a beach front property and is soon lying in a hammock all day, enjoying the view and the beach. He also meets others who have taken up residence there but doesn't exactly find a kindred spirit. He dreams of what he may be like in a few years time and in doing so, scares himself into going back to Mayberry. Written by

When Opie goes into Howard's office there is a large sign on the wall indicating the office is the License Division for Mayberry Township. Howard later tells Opie "someone has to keep up with the city's documents." However, Howard is the County Clerk and would not be processing licenses or anything else for the township. Municipalities have their own City Clerk's offices separate from the county. See more
