  1. I've heard about him and this tragedy over facebook, many Hazzardnet and CGLFC fans are devestated. The world and the Hazzardnet fandom has indeed lost a very special person and even though I didn't get to know him, I know he'll be missed by so many. Condolences to the family and all who knew him.

    RIP

  2. Joy to the World - A Hazzard County Christmas! *Words in brackets are interludes - spoken over the musical break, to the tune of Joy to the World!*

    (Daisy: Let's sing some Carols!

    Bo: Alright, but me an' Luke got one of our own...special to Hazzard County.

    Luke: Uhh no, Bo's got one of his own. I had no hand in this. I just play guitar)

    Joy to the world

    From Hazzard County!

    (Luke: That is the absolute last time I let you write the carol Bo.)

  3. Yeah that is what I meant Hoss LOL, I meant to put that - in case no one noticed - Daisy had sold the doors of the jeep and maybe more we haven't noticed to pay for the $500 bail....though how selling a couple of doors equalled $500 beats me LOL

  4. Awsome job! Well done!

    By the way, just wondered if anyone else has noticed when exactly it was Dixie lost her doors and why - show explanation wise. In one of the shows where the boys were fighting - Carnival of Thrills I think though I might be wrong- and both boys are in the jail, Bo gets his bail posted by someone else. However Jesse and Daisy go to the jail intending to get them both out. When Daisy gets out the jeep, the doors are missing then and she says "Sorry I had t'borrow on ya Dixie, but its for a good cause!"

    Was just something interesting I noticed a while back and wondered if anyone else had spotted the same or wondered what the heck she was talking about LOL

  5. LOL Yeah I've done it before I'll do it again!! I blame DaisyMae for my staying up late all the time...she has officially converted my body clock to American time which is really bad when i'm working!

    Can I just say, I love all you guys so much around here. I know I haven't been on recently cause its been sooo hectic, but I do miss Hnet when i'm away from it, your all like my second family! I know its early but I really do wish you all a very very happy christmas and I hope the new year will be awsome for everyone.

  6. The sound of the bells seemed to continue to ring in his head long after he had left the town square. It was almost comforting that while a lot was changing and would continue to change for the Dukes in the years to come, there would be some things that would never cease. For all intents and purposes, Uncle Jesse had indeed filled his lot in life in taking in the three cousins on their most tragic day and raising them to be the people they were, people that everyone loved and respected and would do anything for....including opening a store in the middle of the night and a little boy wishing for their happiness to return. Very few people touched other people's lives like the Dukes did, and while Uncle Jesse's loss had hit Luke hard, the legacy he left behind in him was something that would never be lost. As long as he had his Uncle's teachings, there would always be people on his side and the extended family that was the townfolk and would include people whom he would meet much later on in life would always grow.

  7. Bo had been determined to wait up for him, and since Daisy had gone to bed had retrieved all the presents down from the attic that had been stored up there out the way by him and Daisy and had added them to the ones Luke had put under there earlier. The house smelled of Turkey as it gently cooked in the oven and the place was spotless as Bo had taken to cleaning after he had run out of presents to bring down. Outside, the snow had settled and turned everything white, though already there were footprints where Bo had been outside to check the animals and put them away in their warm shelters. He had even taken to decorating the outside of the house a little bit. Now though, he had fallen asleep on the couch with a car magazine in one hand and an empty cup of cocoa in the other.

  8. Bo watched him go with a small sigh, deciding now to leave the rest to his Uncle. He knew what was written in the letter, he had had to help Uncle Jesse write the thing when he got too weak to write for so long. While their Uncle was gone, the words he had needed to say to Luke were still there in paper and ink and he just hoped they would be able to help him now as they had done in the past.

    Shaking his head as Daisy went to follow Luke, he grabbed her shoulder gently and led her to the lounge, just sitting on the couch with a blanket wrapped round the two of them.

  9. Inside the small box, the light of the room and the christmas lights catching its brightly shined metal, was Uncle Jesse's fob watch that had always hung from his overalls. As a boy when Jesse used to comfort Luke after something bad had happened - a fight at school or with Bo, falling over and scraping his knees, girls breaking his heart (as had happened as often as Bo had girlfriends before he went to the Marines) - Luke had always sat in his lap and cuddled into him, one of his hands taking hold of the fob watch that would always hang there gently, pressing his ear against it as he held it. The soft, rhythmitic ticking had always calmed his mind and his anger and made him able to listen to what his Uncle had always told him.

    Jesse of course had known how his passing would affect Luke, or at least he knew the worst case scenario, and so had tried to leave him something that would give him that little bit of peace and acceptance. Something of his Uncle's that he could always carry with him without feeling embarrassed about it. And so, engraved on the back, he had put the simplest message - For my very first, special little boy x

  10. "No it ain't....but nothin stays the same forever...you can't stop change. Change has t'happen otherwise we'd never be able t'grow. An' sides...it was time for Uncle Jesse t'go...he missed Auntie somethin fierce....he's been without her long enough ain't he?" he asked softly, trying to find any words of comfort even though he knew really there weren't any. Luke just had to get what he had been holding back out of his system and realize what they were saying, and until he found something to do that, Bo and Daisy just had to be there and that was fine with them.

    Biting her lip though, Daisy thought of one small thing that might help. Luke was still in Jesse's Santa suit, even without the beard and moustache and maybe this final thing could help him in some way. It had always soothed him when he was a kid and this was something Jesse had wanted Luke to have....except they'd never been able to get Luke close enough to them to give it to him. Carefully she broke away from the hug and hurried into her room where she was keeping the small wrapped box and the letter and brought it to Luke, saying gently.

    "Uncle Jesse wanted us to give this to you..."

  11. Bo nodded gently, letting go of Luke with one hand to reach Daisy and include her in the hug too.

    "I know...we all do Luke...more than just this family, there's loads of people out there wish Uncle Jesse was still here...but he ain't...and he was never gonna be forever...but he ain't gone completly you know? The essence of who he was is still here...he lives in us. Everytime you make a decision, everytime you work on this farm, everytime you deal with other people...its Uncle Jesse that taught you those skills Luke...."

  12. Without another word being said, Bo crossed to his older cousin and wrapped him in a gentle, supportive hug - hoping as he did that Luke would accept it and wouldn't push him away like he would have done before. More than anything, this is what Bo wanted. He wanted Luke to finally grieve with them. Rocking him softly, he rubbed Luke's back gently and whispered.

    "It's alright...it'll be alright now Luke..."

  13. Bo swallowed hard as Luke turned away, clenching his jaw before saying gently as tears filled his baby blue eyes.

    "I want t'grieve with you Luke...I miss him too..more than anythin...especially at times when I need his advice and I turn t'ask him an' he ain't there waitin in his chair no more. I may be younger than you and I know you got this crazy urge t'protect me an' Daisy from anythin that might hurt us more...but seein' you sufferin an' not bein' able t'do anythin' about it hurts more than anythin' you could say. You might have been made head of this family, but every great leader needs help. Uncle Jesse had Auntie and us...you still have us..."

  14. Clenching his jaw, Bo shook his head even more, getting to his feet and pulling Luke away from the window, making him face him.

    "Stop it!! Just stop it! You can't tell me that after everything you've put me an' Daisy through, after everything you've done to yourself that one trip into town talkin' t'kids all day has made ya forget everything that turned you away from us! You can't get over losin' Uncle Jesse that quickly! I know christmas is a time for miracles, heck i'd be the first one to believe it, but this ain't right!"

    Daisy bit her lip gently as she listened...of all the outcomes that could have happened from this plan, this was not what either of them had expected. She could see what Bo was saying, how much she and probably Luke wanted to believe that Christmas had solved all their problems, all Luke's problems, the way Luke had been acting made that hard to believe. Stepping forward, she put a hand on Bo's shoulder and a hand on Luke's gently.

    "Bo...c'mon calm down...I know you's been worried about Luke but don't shout...it ain't time for shoutin'...an' Luke...Bo has got a point. Its...hard to believe you can switch between two extremities like this...and before you say it, yes it is what we've wanted. We've waited for you to be happy and come back us definitly and i'm so happy your happy...but this...this is too happy considerin' everythin' that's happened cousin...you can understand right?"

  15. Daisy smiled as she listened to him, pleased to finally see the sparkle back in his eyes and the bounce back in his step. All that needed to happen now it seemed was for him to start sleeping properly and eating right again and Luke would be back to his normal self in no time.

    Of course, Bo saw it differently. Like Jesse, he'd been through a lot with Luke. Maybe not everything that his Uncle had but a fair amount and people had often claimed that the boys knew each other better than they knew themselves...and Bo knew that Luke while Luke may have been feeling happy after his excursion as town Santa...it was unlikely it would last to this extremity. Shaking his head, he looked to Luke and said gently.

    "Cousin...will ya sit down an' quit it...I'm glad that yer happy again, I am. Its what i've wanted for a long time now but...yer pretendin. Yer pretendin cause you think its what we want but its not...I don't want this to be a temporary thing and unless or until you talk about what's kept ya away from us, nothin's gonna change...yer gonna go right back to what you were like before..."

  16. Bo watched him, shaking his head a little at the offer as Daisy went to get him the milk from the fridge. Biting his lip he sat down at the kitchen table and started taking off the bandages, finding the change in Luke almost too dramatic to be believable. Yes this is ultimatly what he and Daisy had wanted, it was true that he should be just going with it and be happy that Luke seemed to finally be where the rest of them were. But that was just it...seemed to be. He couldn't be sure that Luke actually did feel this way, it all just seemed too over the top. He had expected the change to come about gradually, that they'd finally get to talk about what was bothering him and he certainly hadn't expected Luke to be making fun of the way he had brought the change in him about.

    Not wanting to spoil the mood however, he just sat quietly peeling the bandages off his chest and his ankle as Daisy laughed and joked around with Luke.

  17. Bo actually did stumble sideways as Luke took Daisy away from his side, having been leaning on her enough that her moving would cause it. Shaking his head, he put the weight on his foot properly and folded his arms.

    "Maybe, but you sure didn't realise that for a few days now didja? An' besides, I ain't as bad as you when you were tryin' t'pull sick days from school when we was kids...can ya blame me for bein' a bit horrible at it? Look what I had t'learn from!!"

    Daisy couldn't help but laugh at Luke's laughing, hugging him back as he kept his hold on her, smiling to Bo.

    "I think you did a great job Bo...you sure did trick Luke here even if he'll now deny it."
