    DaisyMaeDuke got a reaction from Skipper Duke in Lovin' Dukes   
    I just noticed this thread and everyone had such interesting stories I thought I'd share mine. Although I will pretty much give away my age here, I was about 5 when the first episode came on. I loved it instantly! Every Friday Night was special. Not only was I allowed to stay up past my normal 8 o' clock bedtime to watch Dukes, but usually I had a special snack to have while I watched... and the snacks were never better than when you were watching a Dukes episode and one of the commercials during the episode was for exactly what you were eating...I think at the time it tended to be a Dolly Madison cream cake...you know the ones you can't find any more. But I digress...
    Every Friday Night was the one night per week my brother would let me into his room (he was old enough to have his own TV...one of the perks of being older I guess.) Anyway I would sit on the floor (because he refused to let me sit on the bed with him...it was after all his room and his tv...he had to Lord over me somehow and set the standards LOL) I didnt care though...that 12 inch screen was all I needed...it didn't matter that the floor was hard...and that the room smelled funny...and I took the risk of getting Cooties...it was worth it for one hour of Dukes and arguing with my brother who was better: Bo or Luke... (I took turns who to root for cuz I didnt want either one to feel slated)
    How much of a fan was I? Strawberry Shortcake was all the rage at that time for girls my age. I however took the scissors to my dolls...(cuz I had a big imagination and no Bo/Luke dolls) and made my own....Bo smelled like Lemons and Luke like huckleberries!the things I put them through rivaled any of the writers' on the show I assure you...preparing me for RP I suppose.
    I stole at an early age...my brother won a toy General Lee at a birthday party...he saw it once and "lost" it...Don't leave your Generals lyin' around Bro! He he.
    I wrote a letter once to Tom Wopat (no idea how old I was...maybe 7 or 8) I didnt have his address so I addressed it o Hazzard...I think my mom sent it to the tv station near us here not really in the hopes of anything happening...and nothing did...until about 7 months later I got an autographed picture saying Thank you for writing. All best wishes and his name...I was thrilled.
    This was also before the days of VCRs. I made my own. I tooke my tape recorder and recorede episodes onto my cassete tapes. I would then set the tape recorder under my pillow and go to sleep the sound of Dukes in my head.... I remember playing Brotherly Love over and over this way...I loved the part where Bo was so worried for Luke...lol
    I'd also developed a dramatic streak early on...armed with trusty taperecorder and that imagination I told you about, I would do what I thought were different voices and make my own Dukes episodes... complete with kew kew and making my dog bark on cue when I needed someone to be Flash...I still have some of the tapes...
    How hooked on Dukes was I? Very...and still am...

    DaisyMaeDuke got a reaction from DoubleShot in Niagara Falls Concert   
    Roger suggested that those of you who weren't able to attend the concerts in Niagara Falls by Tom and john might like to know a bit about them. I am not a review writer, but I'll try to give you an idea.
    First of all though I have to say I originally was only going to the Saturday Show. Then John's mom, wonderful lady that she is, heard I didn't have a ticket for Friday and lo and behold I find my self in the third row both nights, close enough to see Tom's beautiful eyes and john's gorgeous smile...but I digress...
    The show lasted about one and a half hours each night. The songs were all great. Of course they did the Dukes theme both nights....and in tribute to Waylon they sung "Luchenbach, Texas". Friday night John assumed kids were allowed in so he tried to think of something he could replace the "firm feeling women" lyrics with. Tom didnt seem to care so much and sung it for him. Tom did some show tunes and ones off his latest album including "When youre a jet," "That's Life", "They're writing songs of love but not for me"....and more. John did more country including "whats a memory like you," "Ive been around enough to know" and the first night he did a request of "who cares" for a couple as it was their wedding song. My personal two favorites were ""Youve Lost that Loving Feeling"- tom really got into this one the first night- and "Baby its cold outside" which as most of you know is supposed to be male/female duet. Tom rewrote the lyrics, although watching them sing to each other, as well as the facial gestures they made during some parts was so hilarious I dont think there was a dry eye in the room. I will see if I can remember the lyrics and post them...
    Add to all this the banter (John about Tom's age, Tom about John's women, etc etc etc.) you better believe it was a night I will never ever forget.
    I should also add that the second night Tom was not feeling well...his words were "I've only got half a voice but you'll get that half tonight." He ended up leaving the after-party early because he did just that....hopefully he is much better now but kudos to Mr. Wopat and his "show must go on" attitude. Professionalism at its best.

    DaisyMaeDuke got a reaction from kit in tom caught with weed?   
    Ok...well I will put my two cents in here too I guess...
    I am very sad this happened, and though I think he made some bad choices, I don't know anyone on Hazzardnet or elsewhere that hasn't done things that they regret. In Tom's case, it just gets publicized for the world to know about.
    I certainly don't condone it in any way, but NONE of us have a right to judge him for anything he did.
    And Kay I'm sorry, but I disagree with you... He is not "bad news" or "major trouble" You like most of us on here can not make a judgment like that based on what is publicized. For example, I think it was last summer Tom put a new roof on his step mom's house. It didn't make front news, but I think that is a nice thing for him to do. During his Dukes days, when the Hazard, KY mines collapsed, both Tom and John did a benefit concert to raise money for the families of the miners, and Tom himself put in 25,000 dollars extra to cover the concert expenses. Stuff like that is quickly forgotten.
    I am not saying he didn't make a mistake. But we don't have a right to judge him. We don't know why he is turning to alcohol or drugs but he is obviously hurting somehow and looking to make himself feel better. He needs our support, not our judgment.
    If you are like me and believe in God, take this to be a wake up call for us to pray for not ionly him, but others who are struggling with similar issues.
    Think what Uncle Jesse would do...would he be disappointed...sure....but he would love him and pray for him...and support him all he could. We Hazzardites should strive to do the same...
