    I couldn't use Spike's image because it's hard to recolor black panels, so here's a quick effort based on another image I found. There aren't many places for the graphics. You'll have to imagine the flag on the gas tank, because you can't see it from this angle.

  2. Merry Christmas, everyone! We're expecting snow this weekend. Might not arrive in time for a white Christmas, but it might get here Christmas night/Sunday morning! We have a new pup this year (Troy passed last November). We got her from a rescue in Texas last June and she just turned about 1 year old last month. We're really looking forward to her first Christmas and to see how she reacts to the snow. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and a prosperous and happy new year.

    I'm tired of Covid. This might sound crazy but back in November my wife and I took one of our cats to the Vet. We talked about Covid and the Vet said virus' usually last about 3 winters and as they mutate into various variants they do get weaker. He's a great Vet and has always been right when diagnosing the cats. He does a lot of research. I'm hoping he's right about Covid. You need a pickup truck to be a true redneck. lol

  5. Time will tell but you might be right. This latest variant doesn't sound any worse than a common cold but that doesn't mean the next one won't be bad. Raining today but my Ninja got ridden 3 days in a row before this. I'm still getting used to it but felt pretty comfortable yesterday. The biggest thing I don't like is that I don't feel like a redneck on it. Oh well, after the novelty wears off I'll trade it for a dirt bike.

    This may have been mentioned before in the past...but, if you ever watch the classic coming-of-age/juvenile delinquent drama Rebel Without a Cause (1955) with James Dean & Natalie Wood, part’s of that were filmed on the Warner Bros lot as well. The police station in that movie, is the court house/police station in “Dukes”.

    Thanks for asking, Roger. The incision scars have nearly healed and the shoulder pain finally seems to have gone. I guess that means that the worst is over.

    I got to see some live music tonight for the first time in ages. As part of the local Christmas events there are various acts playing on a temporary bandstand in town. Tonight it was a local family where the father sings, the mother plays piano and the son is an international award winning violinist. Funnily enough, they were the main act when I sang in the cathedral a couple of years back (we joined them on stage for 'Nessun Dorma'), and I've since found out that the mother is the cousin of friends of mine (well, this is Ireland after all!). To top it off, the mother had made Christmas cake for afterwards.

    Thanks, Roger. HazzardNet is very much a team effort by all the Hazzardites. I hope everyone's enjoying their turkey. I probably won't get any until nearer Christmas when turkey and ham starts to appear on menus. One of the local sandwich shops usually does a turkey, ham, stuffing and cranberry mayonnaise special which I'm looking forward to.

  15. Here's a look at the PS2 version. I know that Edward Mulhare (Devon Miles) died in 1997 (five years before this games was released), but they don't seem to have licensed any of the original actors to provide voices (unlike the Dukes games).

  16. 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"

    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!

    Happy belated St. Patrick's Day. i saw a few minutes of the N.Y. parade on TV. I still think they are rushing things. Covid is still around and large gatherings is risky.

  23. I am definitely not a spontaneous person but I stepped out of character and cancelled the order for my dirt bike that is taking forever to get here and bought a bike they had in stock. It is my first new bike and my first sport bike, a 2022 Ninja 400. Not exactly a redneck bike but I'll probably trade it in next year for a dirt bike. I just want to experience one for awhile. It wasn't any more expensive than the dirt bike I have been waiting for.

    Merry Christmas 2021

    I just struck gold. I opened a present and WOW! A genuine 1980 Dukes of Hazzard lunch pail! I've never owned one. Come to find out, my daughter found it in a collectible store in Virginia back in July. She bought it and my wife bought it from her and they have kept it a secret since then. It doesn't have a thermos and has a few rust spots, but not many. The only real bad spot is Luke's right forearm, where he is hood sliding. All the paint is wore off from the elbow down. I'm not complaining!

    Thanks, Hobie. I had a very painful, stiff shoulder in the middle of last week - it's apparently a known after effect of being inflated with CO2. That kept me awake for a couple of nights with only strong painkillers and a hot water bottle giving a few hours of respite. Luckily, that's now eased considerably, and last night I got the most sleep I've had for over a week. I stupidly went straight back to work last Monday. I initially felt OK, but by the end of the day I was exhausted. Tuesday I did less than half a day, and then I gradually built up to about 80% by Friday. This week I'm back to normal hours, so fingers crossed I get on alright. I survived today!

  35. Had a 'cousin Alice' in middle school, nobody bullied her, not even the boys because she was stood eye to eye or taller than most of the boys in school. She could spike a volleyball that you didn't want to be on the receiving end of it.

    Yes, I'm supposed to be on a low fat diet. I was definitely nervous because they have to go through the worst case scenarios. I've still been sore today, but the painkillers seem to do the trick. I'm just hoping for a good night's sleep. I'm glad that covid hasn't affected your family too much, Roger. We've got tighter guidelines starting again this week. Let's hope that we don't have to go back to lockdown again before Christmas.

  37. Well, I seen them yesterday and I gotta say it was disappointing and sad, at the same time. Uncle Jesse sort of felt lost and alone and it just didn't feel rigjt, Roscoe should've retired years ago, and Coy, Vance and Hughie Hogg weren't even included for these reunion flicks. But the one I missed the most? Boss. However, I did enjoy Toby Keith's performance and he's probably glad to be part of it.

    I went back to the seaside yesterday, but it was very different weather to the last time. It was so windy that at times it was almost hard to stand up! The spray was whipping off the top of the waves, and then I got soaked when a big wave came over the sea wall. It was a very exhilarating walk, topped off with some very tasty fish and chips.

  41. Hey, there's nothing wrong with a crush....just watch what you do, say and where you go! KEEP calm!! I've got a big crush on this girl that my wife went to school with and her and the guy that cuts our yard ( everybody at least knows everybody in this town [ good luck trying to get away with anything around here! Everybody knows what brand of undrwear you wear!] ) all 3 of them went to school together and he and my wife joke about my crush all the time. The closest I've ever even been to her was about 10 yrs. ago I went into the newspaper office where she worked and I saw her through the wire glass windows of 2 doors. We were about 15-20 ft. apart. THAT'S IT!.....LOL!!! :0

  42. Hi all. Normally, a cast replacement is a bad idea, but the boys they got temporarily to switch for Bo and Luke were great. They just weren't Bo and Luke, that's all. Nowadays, if a network makes a cast replacement it's very likely to ruin the show/movie and/or the characters. Also, Byron Cherry made me remember Terence Hill with that blonde hair of his and his adorable smile.

    Stocking up isn't irresponsible, that's just being smart. Stocking up after you've already stocked up is irresponsible to society. Had to stop my dad from going to Sam's club every week during lockdown because he would buy another pack of paper towels or toilet paper after we found out he had 4 packs of each already. My old bedroom is his stock room now. He has about 2 or 3 years worth of toothpaste, at least a year's stock of paper towels and toilet paper and garbage bags, enough cereal and oatmeal to probably feed a family of 4 breakfast for a few months etc...

    I can't believe Hamlin didn't do any better than that! I did better than that in yesterday's Moonshine 400! ( Where were you guys?) I didn't win though because I was constantly behind Daisy......keepin' an eye on her tail! Also Uncle Jesse kept tryin' to knock me off the track......think he was protectin' daisy!

  46. This exchange happens on the first test drive of their new car: Luke: We jumped a dang creek. Bo: Yeah. General Lee always was a cavalry man. Luke: We built more into this car than just plugs and pistons, I guess. Bo: Fighting spirit of the South. Come on, we got a race to run.

    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!!

    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 to pinpoint the source and felt a lot of vibration in the LR shock tower. He put it on the lift and checked the bushings and they seemed fine so he ordered a set of shocks and thank God that was the problem. Now the car is quiet again and we can drive it without worrying if anything is going to fall off and leave her stranded somewhere.
