Congratulations HossC


Recommended Posts

It's October and the trick or treaters will be knocking on your door before you know it. Here at the HazzardNet, we've been blessed since mid July with a guy who has treated us with over 460 posts that have delighted us all.....and that's why HossC has been selected as October's fan of the month.

On the "Introduce Yourself" thread Hoss describes himself as an Englishman who has been living in Ireland for 7 years. While he may live in Ireland, his heart's in Hazzard County.

Hoss has been a Dukes fan ever since the original series was being aired. At age 12 (1983) he vistited Richmond Virginia and was thrilled to see a General Lee traveling down the freeway. That event was likely one of the reasons Hoss learned to love Chargers and other American muscle cars so much. He collects 1:18 scale diecast cars and his prized pocession is a very rare and valuable black General Lee.

A true car fan, Hoss is a huge follower of Formula I racing as well as all other motorsports.

Of course the General Lee is just one reason Hoss loves The Dukes of Hazzard so much. To him, the show is a way to escape the realities of this crazy world and enjoy a simpler world that makes more sense and always has happy endings. He has all the seasons on DVD and he loves all the seasons and characters so much he can't pick a favorite.

When he's not watching one of the episodes from his complete 7 year collection, Hoss can be found listening to eclectic music, watching Clint Eastwood movies or doing vector based artwork. When he's not doing any of that, he can be found on the HazzardNet where he contributes on a wide range of threads, including asking trivia questions that make our brains spin.

Hoss has been one of the best things that has ever happened to the HazzardNet. His computer skills are highly advanced and he's always quick to help when folks have a technical question.

There's no question about the fact that Hoss is one of the most devoted Dukes fans anywhere. His contributions to the greatest website on the planet prove it and his friendliness reflects what Hazzard County is all about.

It is both an honor and a privilege to win the accolade of 'Fan of the Month'.

Thanks to all the people who have made me feel so welcome since joining, and to the moderators for maintaining this marvelous site.

I should also like to thank the global banking community whose financial mismanagement resulted in a reduction in my working hours, thereby giving me more time to spend here :).

The only downside of being a member is that I've started spelling words the US way (see honor and marvelous in this post alone!), but I'm sure I'll get over it.

Go raibh míle maith agat (thank you very much in Irish).

Well, it's an honour (hehehe) to have you here, Hoss. Unfortunately, the only Gaelic I know is "Ciamar a tha thu? Tha ghu math, tapahd leat." Let me know how to say "You're welcome." LOL. You've been a great addition to our little Hazzard community.

Hey Hoss, remember this?

Since things have been picking up so much I think I should revive this thread starting on March 1.....that is if it's okay with MM. I don't think I'll do long write ups like I used to and since we don't have as many active members some new folks might get it without accomplishing as much as used to be needed to deserve it. Still, it just seems like a good idea.

It's fine with me if you start it up again, Rog. I really appreciate you guys keeping this ol' place going.

I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately. I've been very ill the past six months or so and struggling just to keep up with my job, which is very stressful at the moment. I do come by and check on the place from time to time and I'm happy to see you guys are still here. :)

We love you MM and we're hoping and praying you get better. The June Fan of the Month Award is an easy one. Congratulations Meadowmufn. I believe this is the first time you've won it isn't it? Of course It's no secret that you should have been the Fan of the Month every month since you founded HazzardNet.

Aww shucks. Thanks, Rog. The Fan of the Month was meant for other folks on the site, but I graciously accept.

I am working on getting better. I'm still dealing with some pain, inflammation, fatigue and cognitive issues, but starting to feel a little bit better. My doctor has decided this is a bit over her head and referred me to a specialist. Hopefully, I can get in to see her before September (that's how far she's booked out). I have a week of vacation coming up, so hopefully I'll get plenty of rest and relaxation and feel better. Thank you.

As if that wasn't enough, I just got new glasses with progressive lenses so I don't have to keep taking my glasses off or readjusting where I hold books to be able to read. Feeling like an old fart lately. LOL.

After watching a documentary about Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band earlier tonight (it was released 50 years ago this week, in case you missed it), I was listening to songs from the album. As I was reading the post above, "Getting Better" came on! The song was actually inspired by a quote by Jimmie Nicol, a drummer who temporarily played with the Beatles for a couple of weeks during 1964 while Ringo was ill.

 

Anyway, I hope you return to health soon, MM, and congratulations on being Fan of the Month. I'm sure you'd have won it sooner if you'd just tried a little harder ;).

I was just listening to this album last week because I'd heard about the 50th anniversary. I love the Beatles. That's a neat coincidence. I'm gonna go listen to that song right after I post this.

As for trying a little harder to get Fan of the Month, in my defense, I was probably too sick. LOL. But, don't worry. I get by with a little help from my friends. ;)
