    We had sunny weather here today, so we set off for the beach. Despite the water still being a bit cold, I had a quick swim in the sea for the first time in years. We then went along the coast to a very picturesque village with a working harbor for some very fresh fish and chips!

  2. We got a lot of rain the past 24 hours too. We usually plant pumpkins and never keep up on watering but didn't have to this year. We always used our smaller pumpkins for decorations and bought bigger ones for jack-o- lanterns but this year we're not going to have to buy any. I think I'm going to wait for the Great Pumpkin this year. I keep getting yelled at for being too old to trick or treat so maybe I'll just pull a Linus this year. If my wife visits me I hope she doesn't slug me if I try to hold her hand.

  3. On to project #10: Hughie Hogg's Volkswagen! The first thing I discovered was that it was NOT repeat NOT a true convertible. Rather, it was a chop-top, as evidenced by the sedan-style windscreen, and the bottoms of the window posts still remaining. The second thing I had to learn was the difference between the classic Beetle and the Super Beetle. Some of you already know this, but it was new to me. Although the differences are easy to miss at first glance, I now see clearly that Hughie's ride was most definitely a Super Beetle with the roof cut off. A

    I'll be happy when I'm done with the prescription meds for the severe poison ivy reaction I got a few weeks ago. I go from being backed up for a day or two to not being able to leave the house the next because of several bathroom trips. To top it off the one pill gives me the foggy, head detached from your body feeling and sometimes fall asleep out of the blue so I can't drive after I take it. I don't know how some people can take that pill regularly but I guess your body build's up a tolerance for it. Here's another file for the you've got to be joking folder... And plumbers this

    I remember when I was in 2nd grade in '72 ( I just turned 56, in case you're trying to figure it!) , and my teacher asked the class who liked Buttermilk. Everybody's like " EWWW"!! I was the only one to raise my hand. My grandmother used to keep me before I was old enough to go to school and she used to give me Buttermilk. Nothing beats Buttermilk and Cornbread! ( Me doing a Jeff Foxworthy impersonation: ) Do YOU like cornbread and Buttermilk? Then you just might be a REDNECK!!

  6. Just before that, Rosco asks the kidnappers "Well, how much money do you want?". They reply "Nothing.", and he says "Well, I can raise that."

  7. The only way Daisy would have kissed Hobie (the on-screen version that is) would have been if she was drunker on his shine than he was. Never waste a kiss, um, I mean sip. I'm not sure what she would think of the HN version of Hobie.

  8. I think it's nice, that here in Hazzard, you can say stuff and nobody thinks you're weird or you don't have to explain what you mean or what you're talking about, because everybody in Hazzard knows all the episodes! It's great! We have our own little world here ( called Hazzard) which is about as close to perfect as any can be! We're all close and it's really like " Home"

    The good weather's holding over here, so we took another trip to the seaside today. We started with a walk around the cliffs, and followed that with a few hours on a nice, quiet beach. I even had another little swim. We finished off the day going along the coast to a place called Youghal. It reminded me of Dukes, because it's pronounced "y'all".

    Hobie did all that rain in Tennessee affect you? Man 17 inches of rain in 24hrs has to be a new record for anywhere in America. Friday we finally figured out what was rattling in the wife's car, turned out the rear shocks were the cause. That noise has been puzzling us and the mechanics for the past few months. I though it might have been a loose exhaust pipe. One mechanic thought it was the bushings. I was able to pinpoint the sound was coming from the left rear while driving around our apartment parking lot. One mechanic went with the wife for a drive and he climbed half into the trunk

  14. Final step for now was scratchbuilding the large McPherson struts, a vital item for the Super Beetle. The struts themselves were made from plastic tubing, then the springs made by wrapping metal wire around an appropriately-sized plastic rod then trimmed to shape and installed.

    My dad and uncle tried to do some Three Stooges plumbing repairs over the weekend and now my dad doesn't have hot water . I told my dad you should have just called a plumber in the first place since you know the house was not brought up to code when you bought it in the late 90's. Now it's going to cost him more because the plumber has to fix their screw ups along with the original problem. You'd think my dad would learn from his penny pinching mistakes but no he just makes more over and over again. Of course it doesn't help when his brothers enable him instead of saying "No hire a professiona

    That's odd. At Hobie's Moonshine 500 they fine people if they don't drive dangerously. But it's like 'ol Waylon says. "This is Hazzard County. We do things different here."

  24. Capt Redneck... That's cuz Waylon was an RCA artist he was under contract with them and he couldn't record for another label. Scotti Bros. made the tv soundtrack. However a re-release has since been issued featuring the extended Waylon Jennings one as a bonus track along with Waylon and Willie's Mommas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys.

He was kidnapped by the crooks who were going to rob an armored car using a Rosco look-a-like and while he was tied to a chair in their hideout, .....he told them it rattled his slats!

  30. Hi everyone A few years ago I found a Facebook user who was working on how many General Lee's had been estimated to be destroyed per episode and by each season. He had used HD to pick up on the difference between each car used and even which ones had reused doors from previous jumps. His estimated numbers wasn't as high as how many had been destroyed but unfortunately I can't find the post and I haven't found anyone else who had done similar research. Has anyone on here or any other pages done a similar thing before as I'd like to check it out. I believe Season 2 and 3 the

  31. So season 1 it appears only 2 cars destroyed. LEE1 (since restored) LEE2 used in 2 jumps before destroyed. LEE3 close up car LEE4 and 5 returned to CA unsure what if any damage LEE6 never used still survives. Any HD photos of screen used cars would be great. Will start looking into Season 2

    A small F1 excursion here. This weekend the Grand Prix is at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium - a favorite track of mine and many of the drivers. In free practice earlier today, Fernando Alonso (back in F1 after racing in the Indy 500 and Le Mans over the last few years) had a helmet camera to give a driver's eye view of the track. I'm prevented from embedding the video, but you can see it on YouTube.

I'm glad I don't have roof work. I mowed today.....with a push mower. We have a big yard but I've never owned a riding mower. We also have a 150 driveway and I've never owned a snowblower....keeps me in shape.

    Kurt Busch reportedly has two offers on the table for 2022 but hasn't elaborated any further than that. Sunday's Cup Indy RC race was the least watched Indianapolis Cup race besides the 2018 Monday rain postponed race https://www.jayski.com/2021/08/17/indianapolis-tv-ratings-4/ Nascar is reinstating some Covid protocols such as masks and social distancing https://www.jayski.com/2021/08/17/nascar-implements-several-covid-19-protocol-adjustments-beginning-this-weekend/ . So we won't be seeing the media on top of the driver's anymore this year. They'll have to put their phones and mics
