    RIP Burt Reynolds

    Wife & I watched Smokey and the Bandit last night. 1st time she didn't gripe about me popping that movie in the dvd player, I was surprised it wasn't worn out as it's one of my favorite movies so it gets played a lot . I'll probably dig out Hooper and Stroker Ace

    RIP Burt Reynolds

    I only watched 'Cannonball Run II' about a week before Burt died, so he was obviously on my mind when I attended our version of the Cannonball Run today. Other than a DVD of the first movie, I don't have anything linked to the Cannonball series, so I wore my 'Smokey and the Bandit' T-shirt as a little tribute. RIP Burt - "I'll catch you on the flip side".

    RIP Burt Reynolds

    Burt Reynolds passed away today. He and Jimmie were close. I still remember at Jimmie's 75th birthday, he was surprised by a video birthday message from Burt (and Paul Newman too). It was so thoughtful and great. He'll be missed.

    RIP Burt Reynolds

    Since Burt's death, I've read and heard a few discussions in the media about how he turned down several roles that other actors made iconic, and also how he failed to live up to the acting promise shown in 'Deliverance' ('Boogie Nights' notwithstanding). I've also seen here and elsewhere, people digging out DVDs like 'Smokey and the Bandit' to watch in remembrance. I can't think of many actors whose death would make me immediately re-watch one of their movies, so maybe his choices weren't that bad after all. Burt held a special, joyous place in our collective memories that will never be attained by more critically acclaimed actors.

    Cannonball Comes To Town

    I think them Duke Boys may have finally robbed Boss' bank. Just take a look at the Lamborghini I saw at this year's Cannonball. There were nearly 200 cars this year, including multiple Ferraris, Porsches, Lamborghinis, McLarens and Mustangs. Many of those taking part were in fancy dress, and this time they included Chewbacca, Donald Trump and the Pope (complete with Popemobile). Despite all the expensive European automotive art on display, it was the '69 Mustang, '70 Charger and '70 Challenger that caught my eye. Even though it was red, the Challenger had "Drive Like Kowalski!" on the license plate .

    Thanks so much for posting this Hoss. I am right behind Big Ed Little's head. If that would have been Emma Tisdale there instead you would have seen me.

    Thank you Roger. Sadly I missed Chase Elliott's win, but I was so excited for him. Also missed Bristol last week...but did see that a fan tried getting into a fight with Kyle Busch. He was riding his golf cart to his hauler. He had stopped to sign a fan's autograph. Then got back on when another fan grabbed him or hit him in the chest. He got off and the security guards separated them. Saw the video of it and it just upsets me. The fans surrounding them and the one taking the video was cussing him out, booing him. Cheering on that fan that attacked him. I get that everyone has that one driver or more that they don't like or can't stand. I even get that Kyle Busch can rub fans the wrong way. For the longest time I couldn't stand watching him win and he irritated me with how drove and acted...but also am the first one to admit that he has changed and matured since he got married. Also am the first one to say, whether you love him or hate him, you got to respect and acknowledge his talent on the track and how he can win at any track and anything with a steering wheel. I also remember at a driver introduction a few years back where they introduced him and all the fans booed him...he didn't even do anything other than step onto the stage! As I said, I know that fans seem to always have a driver or two that they don't like (I even have my own...) but I don't agree with the booing him and definitely not attacking him like that. NASCAR is probably the one sport that allows fans down with the drivers (athletes) and fans like that is going to be the ones who will ruin that for everyone else. Not that, that will ever effect me, because I don't for see a NASCAR race in my future sadly, but still frustrating... A lot of this is my opinion. Feel free to disregard it. I am not a Kyle Busch fan, but also have to respect his talent and what he can do on the track. My two cents...for how little it is worth.

    I really did LOL when you showed me where the missing Z was Hoss. In fact I even did a little ROFL. The Cleveland thing is certainly a small mistake compared to the Warner Brothers one.

    I think I've found your missing "Z", Roger. I saw this sign yesterday and it made me smile. It's good to see that a US TV show from nearly 40 ago is still having an adverse effect on a foreign nation's literacy . BTW. I may have mentioned this before, but Warner Bros don't even spell the show's name correctly on the side of the sound stages in Burbank. Check out the entry under "TELEVISION".

    Ray Kohn's Dukes Show

    No, he owns a garage and is a top notch mechanic, maybe even as good as Cooter...LOL This is pretty amazing. I was walking around our local fair Friday night and saw a guy with an 01 hat on. I was wearing my 01 hat (bought at Ray's stunt show) and my HazzardNet shirt (bought here) I recognized this guy as someone I once knew so struck up a conversation with him. Come to find out, he's the guy who owns the property where this pond jump will (hopefully) take place and it's the next dirt road over from me!!!
