countrygirl1986 got a reaction from Skipper Duke in I'm Back!!!
I still hang out with Lori too all the time... and I bumped into another user who fell off the radar too but haven't heard from her recently. I'm not at liberty to discuss who, but she wasn't around for all that long. Let's just say she ran into a few problems that no one should have to go through. I never wrote with her, but she did a good job.
Hilarous thing was, K and I were using some of the same media, and I'd seen her posts in passing, but hadn't realized it was her.
Translation: Some how, there's several of us who ended all ended up in the same fandom that is something other than Dukes... and somehow, I think there's more of us than we're aware of... and all on the same social media website (and I don't mean facebook or twitter).
And no, I haven't heard from the pain in the a** that I used to write with as a teenager and I honestly don't care to at this point. Too much drama.
countrygirl1986 got a reaction from Hobie Hartkins in Forum Update Planned
I decided to pop my head in to see what was up after an absence of almost a year and a half (oops!), and with my hotspot out of data and no other Wi-Fi, I had to log in using my Android Phone. I noticed a little issue, and am not sure if it was the site or my phone, but I had a very difficult time finding the login page. I had to bounce between a few non-board/non-thread pages to get to it as the drop down wasn't working on many of them. Strange, I know.
countrygirl1986 got a reaction from Hobie Hartkins in Happy Holidays
I decided I might as well poke my head in and wish everyone a happy holiday season. Life has been crazy for the past year and a half to two years.
What's everyone thankful for this holiday season? Heres mine:
A little over a year ago, I had a major change which surprised me. About 5 or 6 years ago, my mom told me one of hers and her now fiance's friends was interested in me. I didn't believe her and made up a few excuses about why I wasn't interested (I was actually interested but didn't believe her. My self esteem wasn't the best among other reasons).
I honestly didn't believe it until late August or early September of 2018, when he asked me to dinner. I admittedly shrieked a loud "what!? " in disbelief... Not my proudest moment. It took at least a week or two before I could even respond due to the shock. We've been together since mid September. He was there for me when a few days later, after we talked about how we felt, when my step mother went into a coma unexpectedly, dying a few weeks later. A few weeks after that, he was there for me when my cousin almost died in an auto accident... He had God, Luck, Something on his side because most wouldn't have lived... Pretty sure my brother, also in the accident, saved his life.
A while after that, when everything settled down, it came out that over the course of watching me all summer in 2018, my now boyfriend apparently was acting like I was Daisy and fell off the chair, trying to watch me as I walked around a corner.
About six months ago, we found something else to bond over while he was flipping through Amazon Prime Video. I almost died laughing when he more or less indicated the show he found was one of his favorite old shows from his teenage years - it was the Dukes of Hazzard. The *insert playful insult here* actually got to watch during the original run!
Of course, he had to tell me to shut up (playfully might I add) because, much to his surprise, I knew so much trivia. He hadn't even known it was one of my favorites as it had never come up prior.
Yes, there is a large age gap of 16 years but, at this point in my life, it's just a number, this is the happiest I've been in a relationship, and the best I've been treated in one, by far.
Basically, long story short, I'm thankful for my boyfriend of 14 months, him actually getting the courage to ask my oblivious behind out, all the laughs he's given me, and, for being able to bond a little over the Dukes. Also thankful for his kids, who although two of them are not much younger than me, I absolutely adore each of them and enjoy having around.
I'm also thankful for my dream vehicle - 96 Ford Ranger pickup that was more or less given to me - see surprisingly 'fell in my lap' - 2 years ago which enabled me to finally learn stick... Just hope I can get her fixed before the repairs reach critical or catastrophic... A year+ of sitting will do that unfortunately.

Happy Sadie Hogg Day Everyone! In locals other than Hazzard, I would also like to wish everyone a happy APRIL FOOLS DAY!
But seriously, in Hazzard, as per the TV series, today is Sadie Hogg Day... This is the day that the men take the day off and the women take over. Anyone want to paint the patrol cars Pink? Purple? Anyone?
countrygirl1986 got a reaction from Hobie Hartkins in Mistakes (Bloopers)/Things I've Noticed About The Show
Alright, I'm going to put my two cents in here (if no one minds of course)...
If i remember correctly, the show mentioned the Ridge Raiders were a bandit group of Ridge Runners who would give h*** to people like Boss Hogg - wealthy, crooked politicians. Raiders referred to the Raids they did. It was a cross between Ridge Runner and Raiders, with Raiders being used in a term akin to Robin Hood. It wasn't quite explained too well just a little... well, it was more touched on without any real explaining, so you had to infer it from a lot of the incidents that occurred during the episodes.

Interesting how they had a straight red light bar. Here in Delaware, the different light bars mean different things:
Red and Blue: Police
Red: Fire Department/ambulance
Red and Yellow: Ambulance
Blue: Fire Police (Not to be confused with Fire Marshal. They are two different jobs here. Fire Marshal investigates fires, enforces fire codes, etc, whereas fire police do traffic control, crowd control, and act as police on a fire scene).
I know some states blue indicates general police just like the red and blue does.
