Congratulations Lori Davenport

Recommended Posts

It's November and it's cooling off outside but things are always warm and cozy on the HazzardNet with nice folks like Lori Davenport hanging out here and that's one reason she has been selected as HazzardNet's Fan of the Month.

Lori is pretty famous around here. She's somewhat of a celebrity since she really is from Hazard. We don't mind that her hometown of Hazard Kentucky forgot to add the other Z. All that matters to us is that Lori loves the same favorite show we all do and, in many ways, she represents what the Dukes of Hazzard is all about.

Lori joined the HazzardNet in the summer of 2007 and has blessed us with around 2,700 posts. She is 18 years old and has been a fan of the show most of her life. Her mother is a huge Dukes fan so Lori grew up loving the Dukes as well. (Lori's mom has great parenting skills)

Growing up in Hazard was a lot like the Dukes growing up in Hazzard. Both are small towns where everybody works hard and has good old fashioned values. Lori has cousins she hangs out with and they act a lot like the Dukes. They kick up dust, fix cars, have farm animals and respect the family patriarch (Lori's grandpa is the Uncle Jesse of the family). Hazard is a southern town with speed traps, southern hospitality and even a vehicle that looks like the Mean Green Machine. In fact, the cast of the Dukes of Hazzard even visited there in 1982 and Lori's mom got to meet them.

Lori loves the Dukes because it's great family entertainment, has happy endings, teaches good lessons, is funny, and occasionally has country music. She has all 7 seasons on DVD and loves the HazzardNet because folks here make you feel like family. She respects the moderators for all the work they do (and did) in creating and maintaining the best website on the internet. Amen, Lori!

If you ask her who her favorite characters are, she'll respond that she like them all. Rosco and Flash have a slight edge over some of the others. Enos, Jesse and Luke are right behind, followed closely by everyone else.

Lori is a huge fan of some of the older country music stars. Some of her favorites are Johnny Cash, Waylon, Tom Wopat, Conway Twitty, Dolly, Randy Travis, Keith Whitley and George Strate (no relation to Enos Strate).

Lori keeps busy taking care of her horses, 3 dogs and cat named Midnight. She also enjoys softball and is a Texas Tech fan.

She is passionate about reading, writing and drawing. She loves to draw cartoons and reading anything by J.R.R. Tolkien is one of her favorite things to do. She participates in fanfics involving Tolkien as well as Harry Potter. In fact she loves Tolkien's work so much she has learned the Elvish language Sindarin.

One language everybody here on the HazzardNet knows is the language of Hazzard County. Those folks in Hazard Kentucky might not spell it right but everybody else here on this website sure wishes we lived in a place with a name like that. Since we don't, we're thankful that we do have a real resident of Hazard here to add a bit of Hazard excitement to this place. Thanks for all your contributions Lori. You're our favorite Hazard cousin.
