  1. Let that general fly again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But not before the film makers discover what the DOH was about! Make it at least seem that Bo and Luke like each other and bring back that family aspect that maked the tv-show what is was. No Drugs, no cursing but just al lot of action, driving and humor! About recasting: Make Willy Nelson more serious and a father figure and you have a great Uncle Jesse and even Jessica Simpson could be Daisy again if they changed her role a bit. But if you ask me they could lay-off SWS. I like him as an actor but didn't like him as Bo at all. They should ditch Sheeves to. He was funny but I would like to see more of Cooter instead. JM
  2. Daisy's Road Runner is mine. Pedal to the medal but wheels stuck to the ground please JM
  3. Pendragon, you'll be just fine, don't wory! Seems to me you already fougt a lot of battle's so this new one you'll win againg i'm sure. I want to thank you specially for reviving this thread, cause I never saw it before and now I'm really glad I did. The thing is, I have a friend who's depressed for many years now, ever since we were teenagers. She tried to kill her self two times, once 5 years ago and once last year. Ever since we are friends I'm looking out for her. She used to be bullied a lot when she was a kid and because of that she developed this tremendous defence maganism, in which she goes off at anyone who says something criticizing, at her or about her. In junior high this caused a lot of trouble with her and classmates, trouble I could fight her out again. In the last years of highschool she found friends who were using drugs. She started to use it to and found a boy friend, who was good for her selfimage, but was also stoned half of the day. I hated to see her hanging out with that group and took me quite some trouble to get her out of it! Now we both in our early twenties, she lost the drugs and the boyfriend but she's still depressed all the time, like I said she tried to kill her self again january 2004 Because she hasn't got any other friends she can go to, she leans on me a lot. I don't mind that, but sometimes it's very difficult. Because of her depression she can get prety upset/angry and she'll take it out on me. She did see a psychiatrist for a while, but her parents thought after a while it didn't do her no good and she has to solve her own problems . (You believe that?!!) Sorry I'm rambeling on but what I'm trying to say is even though I care about her a lot, sometimes I'm getting tired of the weight resting on my shoulders specially cause it asks a lot of my private life. Reading your strory though, reminds me why it's important for friends to stick to gether and for me to keep supporting her! Thanks a lot! JM
  4. just read your first post of coming home. I'm intrigued so please go on. JM
  5. It took them about ten minutes, to bring the horse back to her stable and free her from her riding gear. “Who are they?†Nick asked when they were walking up to the house and he saw two boys his age standing next to a man who was talking to Uncle Jesse. “That is Mr. Harkins and his boys, Uncle Jesse asked him to take a look at Maudine.†They walked up to the large black man dressed in blue overalls and his two kids who were wearing striped t-shirts and jeans. “Good afternoon Mr. Harkins.†Luke said neighborly while he shook the man’s hand. “Good afternoon Luke.†Otis-Jay responded with a friendly smile. “And you most be Nick†He said while he offered Nick his hand. Nick nodded without saying anything and accepted the man's hand. “Well this are my boys Randy and Max.†“Hi I’m Randy.†The larges of the two boys said. “And I’m Max.†The second boy with a green baseball cap followed his example. “Wanna come with us to the lake? We’ve got a tree house there.†“Yeah sure.†Nick said enthusiastic. “I mean eh….I think….†And he looked at Uncle Jesse and Luke. “That’s okay right?†“Sure it is.†Jesse said. “Just make sure you’re back in time for supper. Say about 7 o’clock.†“We’ve got our bikes in the back of the truck. You’ve got a bike?†Nick looked again at Luke with a questioned look. “We might have one stashed back in the barn, but I’m not sure whether it’s still running. Must be about 6 years since it’s used.†Luke said. “I’ll go look for ya.†As Luke walked in to the barn Nick saw the boys were making up their minds about him. “Are you going to our school?†Max asked. “No, I’m not going to school.†Nick mumbled. He was afraid they would think of that as strange so he added: “I’m helping around on the farm.†His voice sounded determined like it was his own decision. Jesse smiled. “Yeah you sure worked hard today.†He said giving the boy a compliment. “Well when you are going to school you’ll probably be in my class, you’re 11 right?†“Yes I am.†Nick said not wanting to explain he wasn’t sure for how long he would stay in Hazzard. Mr. Harkins saw Nick felt embarrassed talking about this so he changed the subject. “I still got that peaces of corrugated sheet laid back boys. You want me to bring it over bye the tree house so ya can use it for the roof?†Randy seemed to be thinking. “Well actually no grown-ups are allowed.†He said sincere. “But I think we can make an acceptation ones.†The man laughed. “I practically build half the house for them.†Otis-Jay said grinning to Jesse. “And now I need an acceptation to come near it. You figure that.†At that moment Luke came out with Bo’s old BMX bike. “Well you can ride it, but if ya want to use it more often we have to fix her up. She really needs oiling.†“Well ain’t it good we didn’t give that thing away then.†Jesse said. Nick took the bike from Luke and looked at it. It was really dirty and it maid a rattling sound but he loved it. “So why don’t you boys get of and have some fun than.†Mr. Harkins said. “You remember what time you’re supposed to be back here?†Luke asked. “Yes I do. At 7.00, can we go now?†Nick said in a bit of a bored tone. “And what’s the time now?†Luke asked without answering the question. Nick wanted to reply but found out he couldn’t... “Eh…I don’t know.†He said with a disappointed face. “I don’t got no watch.†“So how did ya figure to be back on time than?†Luke asked. “I don’t know, didn’t think of that yet. Guess we have to watch the sun than, I now where it supposes to be at six. It’s at the right side of the lake then.†Luke smiled. He hadn’t think of the boy to be that inventive, but he didn’t trust Nicks boy scout capacities that much yet. “Well better take this anyway.†He said while he handed Nick his own watch. “You can check whether the sun is right to day.†Nick took the watch and looked at it with big eyes. “Ya sure?†He asked doubting. “What if I loose it?†Luke took the boys wrist and helped him to put the watch on. “Just keep it on your wrist and nothing can happen to it.†He said reinsuring “Just go now and have fun.†Nick seemed to be doubting for just a moment but when he saw Randy and Max standing ready with there bikes he decided not to worry about the watch any longer and they took of. “So you live here all your lives?†Nick asked while the rode their bikes to the lake. “Yep, we’re both born here.†Randy replied. â€What about you, we never saw ya before.†“I just arrived here two weeks a go. I’m born in Albany.†“So you’re just staying over with the Dukes or something?†Max asked confused. “Yeah something like that.†Nick replied mumbling. Randy also noticed now Nick didn’t like talking about himself. “Well ya probably like it here. You won’t get bored that’s for sure. There is always something happening here in Hazzard and especially when ya living with the Dukes.†“Why’s that?†Nick asked curious. He thought this to be an opportunity to find out more about his caretakers. “Well cause the Dukes always end up chasing bad guys.†Max said grinning. “You have to see them drive and if they do the whole town is one big mess.†“Yeah I heard yesterday they were chasing bank robbers, but I’m not sure whether that’s true or not.†Randy said exited. “It is true.†Nick replied. “I was in the car when they did, but it were no bank robbers it were truck robbers. Didn’t guess it was a daily thing for them though.†“You were there?†Max cried out while he looked at Nick with excitement. “How did it go?†Nick enjoyed being the centre of attention now and told them the whole story, full of pride until the arrived at the tree house. In town, Daisy was doing grocery shopping. She had decided Nick couldn’t keep walking around in Luke’s old clothes and she picked him up some new shirts, jeans and underwear. After that she went in to the grocery store to get some ingredients for tonight’s supper and she ended with some window-shopping in front of Mrs. Lambert dress shop. “Are you gonna buy a new dress Daisy?†She heard suddenly from behind her. As she turned around she saw Enos standing, strange enough without his uniform, but in civilian clothes. “Oh Enos, it’s you†She reacted surprised. “No I’m not buying anything, I love them all but they are way to expensive and I only wear them on Sundays.†“Well I like what you’re wearing now just fine.†Enos said with a innocent smile. “That’s nice of ya Enos.†Daisy said. “But what happened? Why ain't you in uniform? Boss Hogg didn’t fire you did he?†“No he didn’t don’t worry.†The deputy reassured her. “Today is my annual day off, so I’m just doing some shopping like you.†“Don’t you wanna do something more fun on your day-off? You only got one each year.†Daisy said grinning. “Well now ya mention it.†And Enos cheeks turned red. “I would be honored if ya would join me for ice-cream in the park. If ya have the time that is.†“I would love to Enos.†Daisy said. “Just let me put this stuff in my car and I’m yours.†As he heard that Enos blushed so much his face looked like a tomato, but luckily Daisy had already turned a round and didn’t see it. Hazzard Park was nothing more than a medium size lawn with some wooden benches, a couple of trees, an a small pond with goldfish. “I just love those goldfish,†Daisy said while they sat down on a bench close to the pond enjoying there ice-cream. “Me too, they look really happy with al those colors. I used to have one when I was young, but it jumped out of his bowl, all by himself.†“Ah that’s sad.†Daisy said with a soft smile. “Well I’d always rather wanted a dog.†Enos said grinning. “I didn’t saw ya in church Sunday, where were ya?†Daisy asked. “I was visiting my sister, you know the one that moved to Atlanta. Her youngest had a recital and I promised the girl last time I saw her I would come.†“Well that’s cute, which instrument she plays?†“The violin, and she’s quite good at it too. She got that from her Mom. Lizzy is very musical too.’ “How is Elisabeth anyway?†Daisy asked “I didn’t see her since she moved to Atlanta and that looks likes ages ago.†“Well I think it’s four years ago she married Jake.†Enos said thinking. “Yes two years after high school. She is doing great though, they’re very happy together and they’ve got beautiful kids.†Daisy and Enos both became quiet. They remembered high school like it was yesterday. Luke, Cooter and Enos had been sitting in the same grade. Enos and Cooter came over at the farm a lot to do homework together. Well at least that was what they wanted Jesse to believe, cause most of the time the boys were just exchanging car magazines and thinking of there dream cars they would be driving when they had grown-up. And Enos had come just as much to see Daisy as he did to see Luke. Sometimes even more. But he never had the guts to say a something to her, not even talking about having a conversation. Suddenly Enos put his hand slowly on the hand Daisy had resting on her knee. “You remember that time Luke and me were doing our English homework and he was laughing at me when you came in?†Daisy thought back. “Yeah I think so, but you threatened to tell Uncle Jesse about him ditching biology class if he told anyone.†“Yeah well we had to write a poem and Luke found my first draft.†“Well what was so funny about it, that it almost knocked Luke of his chair?†She asked curious. “Well…eh.†Enos stuttered “I wrote it about you.†“Ooh Enos.†Daisy said in a caring voice while she put her other hand on top of Enos’s. “I liked you a lot back then.†Enos confessed. “And I still do.†Daisy didn’t knew what came over her. Enos had made insinuations like that before only never as open as he did now. Not knowing why, but somehow, at that spot, Daisy dropped her doubts and gave in to the thoughts that had been haunting her the last couple of days. She reached over to the deputy sitting besides her and grabbed him gently by the lapel of his jacket when she gave him a long kiss on the lips. “I’m eh…I’m almost afraid to ask.†Enos stuttered when he looked at Daisy’s laughing eyes “But does that mean you wanna give us a chance?†He asked whit a hopeful look on his face. “Well if you wanna.†Daisy said smiling. Enos jumped from the bench and lifted Daisy up in his arms. “Of course I want that.†He said while he spun her around. “Enos put me down!†Daisy cried out laughing. “Well you can’t blame me Daisy.†He said smiling when he put her feet back on the ground. “I want to hold you like that for more than 10 years.†“Well what about just walking me trough the park? Would that be okay too sugar?†She asked. “It sure will.†Enos replied enthusiastic, and he wrapped his arm around her waste and walked her through the park, hoping that everybody could see them.
  6. Good to hear, Be looking forward to it! JM
  7. OMG that was funny!!! Almost fall of my chair laughing.
  8. I liked the commentary on the One Armed Banded the most, but I only got two seisons on dvd though.
  9. That's a good one, never thought about it though
  10. Very sorry to hear that. Loosing someone ya love is never easy. Just hang in there! lov, JM
  11. Just a question, Do the region 1 DOH dvd's have english subtitles? Cause since we only got up to season 2 released out her, i'm tired of waiting and want to buy the Region 1 versies on Amazone or something. But they must have English subtitlels, otherwise I don't get half of what they're saying. Specially not with that southern slang JM
  12. Man, very awsome! Wished I had a friend like that! JM
  13. I think I would be Daisy to, not just because I'm a girl, but because I'm a girl who likes to do boy things like, driving fast cars (well carts that is, cause i don't have no drivers licence yet ), shooting bow and arrow, playing pool and competing with men, (and winning most of the time ) But I still keep my girly-charms, cause i'm also obsessed with everyting that has to do with, make-up, hair, shopping, and clothes etc etc. LOL
  14. After he had left the room Luke went immediately in to the barn to look after the General. Bo came in a couple of minutes later. “Doesn’t look good does it?†He said while he put his hand on Luke’s shoulder. Luke came up from under the hood. “No it doesn’t. You felt him shake when we hit 90.†“Yeah I did, Good thing those guys were lousy drivers otherwise we’d never got them.†“So what we’re going to do?†Luke asked with a depressing face. “You're asking me? You’re always the man with the plan.†Bo said grinning but with a light sound of desperation in his voice. “Well I tried to think of something all day, but I don’t have a clue how to get us a new carburetor before the race.†“And new windshields.†Bo added. “Those bullet holes might be good for ventilation but those cracks sure don’t make you’re view any better.†“Well I suppose insurance will cover that. Or those guy’s will have to pay for it, but it will take a while before that’s settled, you can bet on that.†“What about looking for work in town?†Bo suggested “And leaving Jesse alone with all the farm work? We need to start sowing any day now, before it becomes to cold. “Yeah I know†Bo said a bit disappointed. “If Rosco ever looses that badge of him I don’t know what I’m going to do with him†He said angry now. “With that reward money we could have got the General fixed in no time†“Ease up now Bo.†Luke tried to calm him down “ We don’t even know or there was a reward.†“Well if there was we’re not gonna see a penny of it.†Bo said moping “With no witnesses, Rosco is gonna make sure he gets the credits and the money.†Luke shrugged his shoulders “Well that’s live in Hazzard, I think the only thing we can do is ask Cooter whether we can arrange some kind of installment payment.†“And hope he forgot we still own him money for those brake lines he replaced last time.†Bo added while he leant against the car. After he had put some screws back in place Luke closed the hood and looked at Bo. “Ya know, when I think of all the work the General needed lately I’m doubting about letting you drive it from now on.†He said irritable. “You’re pushing him all the time.†“Well good thing you don’t got anything to say about that then†Bo said grinning while they walked out from the barn. “The car is half mine ya know.†“Yeah and half Cooter’s if we don’t watch it.†Luke said sarcastic. “I still think we should go to Rosco and claim that reward. We could always try†â€Yeah we could.†Luke said not really enthusiastic. “Bye the way, how was your drive this afternoon?†Bo almost maid a Rosco kind of giggle and there appeared a stupid smile on his face. “Now sure you don’t wanna hear no details.†He said while he leant against the porch. “No please save me.†Luke acknowledged “I have to say though, you hanging around the same girl for three days in a row, that’s a record.†He wasn’t even joking. “Four day’s .†Bo corrected him. “She’s the girl I took to Bronson’s Canyon.†Bo saw the doubting look on Luke’s face. “Well she is nice, smart and very pretty.†He defended himself. “She does a lot of volunteering for the church, she’s thinking about going to college and she makes great brownies for that matter.†“You thinking of showing her around here anytime soon?†Luke asked with a frown. He was a bit surprised about the way Bo was talking about this girl. Normally they didn’t made a lot of effort to get to know the girls they dated. He knew he didn’t knew a lot about the other girl that joined them that night at the Boars Nest. Bo shrugged his shoulders. “Not sure about that yet, maybe. Just don’t start about it ‘round Uncle Jesse would ya please.†He said referring to earlier that morning. “Ya know how he thinks about stuff like this.†“He doesn’t have to!†Jesse’s voice sounded sharp from in side the living room. Apparently they had been talking louder than they had thought and didn’t paid a lot of attention to the open door. “I know more than I would like to about the both of you chasing girls since you were thirteen!†The boys looked at each other. “Ya think that man misses one thing that’s going on around here?†Luke said a lot softer now. Bo shook his head. “Nope, he never did I think.†Sighing the cousins walked in to the house. “If we start getting these Christmas catalogues any earlier they’ll be coming on the Fourth of July.†Jesse mumbled while he was going through the mail. “Why don’t just throw them away? Not like we ever use them.†Luke said. “I already know what you’re gonna give me.†Bo said while he let himself fall down on the couch. “Same thing I give ya every year, and you give me every year.†Luke added “The annual edition of ‘NASCAR-moments of the year’! Bo and Luke said at the same time and ended op laughing out loud. “Well maybe we should get more original than.†Bo joked. “You boys know what to do tomorrow?†Jesse asked while nudging Bo against the legs to remove his feet from the couch. “Guess that barn needs finishing and we should start plowing if we want to sow anytime soon.†Luke replied. Bo pulled a tired face. They had made so many long days behind that plough, he still hated the word even though they had a tractor now. Jesse nodded. “I also asked Otis-Jay Harkins to come over tomorrow afternoon. Maudine is limping a bit and that man can work miracles with animals.†“Ain’t he got kids Nick’s age?†Luke asked. Jesse thought for a moment. “I believe he does have two boys, one 11 and the other 12 years old. Both singing in the choir†“Maybe you could ask him to bring them along. Might be nice for Nick to have some company his own age.†“Well wouldn’t know why not. You told the boy we’re going to make some phone calls tomorrow?†“Yeah, he immediately got more nervous than a trapped rattlesnake. Don’t think social services has a positive ring to him. †“Well he’s free to stay for a while, but he has to go back someday.†Jesse said while he grabbed a book and sat down in the rocking chair. “Shouldn’t we get him back were he came from as soon as possible?†Bo asked. “Before he get used of being here I mean.†Luke stared in front of him with a frown on his face. “Think we’re a little late for that.†He said. “So those couple of days won’t make a whole lot differences then.†“Might it be you who’s getting used of the boy being here?†Jesse asked in a gentle voice. Luke went with his hand trough his hair “Well I can’t deny being fond of the kid.†He said a bit apologizing. “He’s difficult but he had his share of trouble to make up for that, and I don’t think he means it all bad.†“Well he is funny.†Bo said grinning. “If he doesn’t almost blow up the barn.†“Or uses the couch as a trampoline and almost breaks every darn thing in this living room.†Jesse added. “Or manages to rip his clothes within two days.†Daisy said while she walked in with a basket of laundry, and showed them the hole in Luke’s old shirt. “Or makes a discussion out of every darn thing ya tell him to do, I know.†Luke acknowledged. “But like ya said its easy getting used of having him around.†Jesse looked at his boys with a soft smile. Bo getting serious about a girl and Luke worrying about this kid as he did. Would the day finally have come his boys started to grow up? “Anybody in for checkers?†Bo asked while he jumped from the couch. “Looser does the dishes tomorrow.†Luke replied and also came up from his seat. “Well better prepare yourself for some work then.†Bo said grinning while he punched his cousin playful in the ribs if as he made some kind of boxing combination and got the checkerboard out of cabinet.†“Don’t get ahead of yaself there cus.†Luke said grinning while he grabbed Bo in some kind of wrestling clutch. Before Jesse could say anything Luke threw Bo over the couch, causing the couch to flip over and Bo ended up on the floor behind it. Checker pieces were all over the floor. Jesse sighed. How could he even have thought about those two growing up. “You alright Bo?†The old man asked while he got up from his chair. “Yes sir.†Bo said grinning while raised his head above the couch and shook it to loose the confusion. “Well get up then and make sure this mess is gone before I’ll get back or you’ll both have it.†He said heated. “Worse enough having one teenager in the house again, can’t have the two of you behaving like one again.†“Yes sir.†The boys said serious but they had trouble to keep them selves from laughing. Jesse left the living room and took his book with him to the porch. Luke helped Bo to get up and they collected all the pieces from the floor, so they could start their game. The next morning after breakfast Jesse started to make the phone calls. Because Nick, who didn’t wanted to miss a word, kept hanging around him in a nervous kind of way, Jesse decided to send the boy out with Bo to feed the animals, so he could have a normal conversation. Jesse first called the social service department in Albany*(edited), where Nick had told he was from. The people working there found his file but Mrs. Walker, the social worker who handled the case as the woman on the phone called it, was out for a couple of days. She gave Jesse the phone number of the orphanage Nick had stayed. The person he reached there was very glad to hear Nick was okay, but also told Jesse it wasn’t the first time the boy had took of. She advised him to bring Nick to the local orphanage until Mrs. Walker would be back and they could make the transfer. Jesse didn’t felt like that so he phoned the Hazzard orphanage and explained the whole situation. Normally families had to be screened carefully before being aloud to take in a child, even if it was for a short unofficial stay. But Hazzard being Hazzard and everybody knowing everybody Mr. Crane, head of the orphanage and old classmate of Jesse, didn’t saw a problem when Nick stayed at the farm a little longer. After lunch Luke kept his promise and showed Nick the horses. Nick had been helping out with chores all morning, not because he had to, but because he had nothing else to do. First he had been feeding the chickens, goats, and pigs. After that he had helped Bo sanding the barn and just before lunch he had driven the tractor with Luke. Well, Luke drove it and he sat next to him watching. Although nobody had obligated him to do anything, he was glad Luke took him to the horses and he didn’t have to do no chores anymore. Luke had saddled Sheila, the smaller of the two horses, and showed Nick how to get on it. “Just put ya left foot in the stirrup like this.†He said while showing how. “And then pull yaself up. Remember to keep ya right leg stretched and high otherwise you’ll end up kicking the horse instead of swinging over it.†“Like this?†Nick asked when he put his foot in the stirrup. “Ya have to turn ya left side more to the horse, instead of standing right in front of it.†Luke explained and turned the boy’s shoulders. “Otherwise you kick her in the stomach and she’ll be walking before ya even get up.†Nick followed the instructions hew as given, pulled himself up, swung his right leg over the horse and sat straight up in the saddle. “Very good.†Luke said enthusiastic. “Now just kick her gently with your heels and she’ll be walking.†“This is awesome.†Nick called out, while he got the horse to walk. Luke told him how to hold the rein, how to steer, how to use his legs and how to sit. “How do I make her go faster?†Nick asked after while when he got bored of just going at footpace. “Just spur her on with ya heels, but not to hard. Don’t want ya to fall of on your first ride.†“I won’t.†Nick said convinced and gave the horse a firm kick and the horse started to walk faster “Sure ya won’t, but just keep her like this ya hear.†Nick had got exited though and spurred the horse on again, which immediately went in to trot. Luke tried to catch the rein but he was too late. “Ease her up now Nick, that’s enough, just pull the rein and lean backwards.†He called out, but Nick was having to much fun and didn’t wanted to quit yet. This being the first time he sad on a horse though he couldn’t manage to keep his legs still properly and this time not on purpose he kicked the horse again and she broke in to a gallop. This was too much for Nick to handle and within a few seconds he lost his balance and fall of the horse. Luke hurried up to him. “You alright?†Luke asked when he kneeled down to him. Nick sat up and rubbed the back of his head. “Yeah think so.†He said still a bit shocked. “Man, she suddenly went of like that.†He didn’t really understand what had happened. “Well I told ya to slow her down.†Luke said while he pulled the boy back on his feet. “Why didn’t ya?†Nick shrug his shoulders. “Guess I thought I could handle it.†“Well ya guessed wrong.†Luke said firm. “And you should’ve listened. You’re just lucky you didn’t break anything. “Well can I try again?†Nick asked with non-stop enthusiasm. “No, I think we’re done for today. I don’t put ya up there if I can’t trust ya to listen.†Nicks face fall and he stared at Luke for a moment with out saying a word. “Ah please?†He asked then. “You can trust me, I’ll do anything ya say, I swear. Please let me try again, please.†Luke held on to his decision though. “You can show me that next time then.†He said stern but not unkind. “For today we’re done. Ya can help me bring her back to the stables though if ya want.†Nick doubted what he should do. He could walk away upset to show Luke he was mad or he could go and help Luke and still have some fun. “Okay, but can I try again tomorrow?†Luke smiled. “We’ll see.†He said while he got the horse, that waited patiently a couple of yards away from them, by the rein. “Lets just get her back to the stables now, I think we have company.†And he pointed at the pick-up truck that pulled up the farmyard. *oops kind of mixed up states there, well Arizona -Georigia watch the different just about 1250 miles
  15. Hi ya'all, just wanted to let you now this page is still here and I had some questions for ya'all. Since I never went to the US.A. and all my information is based on what I see in movies and on tv I would like to ask your help for some background information I need to make the story realistic. For instence: The American school system: I know you've got kindergarden, primary school, midschool, high school and college/university. Did I miss any? And how old are ya when you go to any of these? And are the classes made on intellegence levels? Like IQ or testresults? Or is just everybody with the same age put together? Secondly: legal drinking age. The legal drinking age in the states is 21, so far I know. Just wondering or it's only illegal to sell/give alcohol to underage kids. or can ya also get caught for underage drinking yourself. And what about in the privacy of your own home? Hope you all don't mind me asking your help on this, surched the internet for a while but couldn't find the answers. lov, JM
  16. â€Luke?†Nick asked suddenly. “Do you know those caves near that river with that white bridge?†Luke had to laugh about that vague description. ‘I think ya mean the o’ll Indian Caves. Yes I know them. Were not that far away from them as a matter of fact.†“Ya think we could stop there for a moment?†â€Yeah sure. Is there a special reason or are we just gonna catch up on our native history?†Nick shook his head. “No not really, just to get some stuff I left there.†“You used to come there then?†Luke asked. “Used to sleep there when it was cold.†Luke nodded and took a right turn of the main road. Not much later the two of them walked along the river up to the caves. “Which one of them is it?†Luke asked. “That one.†And Nick pointed to one of them. “You do know bears use to sleep here do you?†Luke said joking. Nick shook his head. “Never saw one, only thing I saw were people coming up here together, going in to the caves and leaving a couple of hours later. Don’t know what they were doing there though, can’t imagine it is fun just sitting inside there.†Luke had to keep himself from laughing out loud. “You remember seeing Bo here once maybe?†He asked with a full grin. Nick frowned “No why.†He asked confused. “Just wondering.†Luke replied still smiling from ear to ear. As they walked up to the cave Nick had pointed out, Luke noticed there were fresh footprints walking in to the cave. Although normally lovers would leave some kind of mark by the entrance of the cave to let people no it was occupied Luke didn’t wanna take any risk with the young boy who was with him. “Maybe you better wait out here for a sec pall.†He said well standing in the opening. “I will go in and look for your bag.†“Why do I have to wait?†Nick asked offended. “Just because!†Luke said harder then he intended, because he didn’t knew anything better to say. “What I’ll be looking for exactly?†“Brown backpack and a sleeping bag.†Nick said forced still upset he had to stay outside and not even new why. “There lying against the right whole not to far in to cave.†“All right just waits here then. I’ll be right back.†Leaving the boy behind, he walked in the cave. It was quite deep although his eyes got used to the dark he had trouble seeing clear. All of a sudden he heard a moving sound. “Anybody here?†He said in to the dark. There was no reply. “Just come to pick up some stuff some kid left here.†He called out again. Again there was now reply. Luke got his lighter out of his pocket and snapped it on. He looked around but saw nothing and just as he told himself he had imagined the sound he felt something tapping his shoulder. He turned around and before he noticed what was going on he was watching the barrel of a gun. Two men with leather jackets and balaclavas were standing in front of him. “Guess ya took the wrong cave to look for your stuff now farm boy.†The man holding the gun said, while he took the lighter from Luke. “Guess you’re right.†Luke answered while putting his hands in the air where the man could see them. “I better get going again and leave ya two alone then.†He said and wanted to walk outside again. “Hold it farm boy!†The man said while aiming the gun more precise at Luke. “You just go and stand over there.†And he pointed at the wall. “We wouldn’t want you waiting us up when we come out now.†“Alright alright.†Luke said calming the man down. “No need to get up set now, what ever ya want.†Luke walked over to the wall. He saw that the second man held a sack that didn’t look liked a kid’s backpack, but at a money sack that was used for transporting money by truck. “Now I don’t know what you nice men are doing here but I do know you won’t find no trouble from me. Just do your thing and I won’t tell nobody.†“Of course you won’t.†The second man said. “They have to find you first and by then we are long gone.†He said while he bended over to get a rope from the floor. At the same time from the entrance of the cave sounded a sharp bang. The man with the gun looked up and Luke knew this was his chance. As quick as he could he kicked the gun from the hands of the guy and shoved it in trough the dark. The second man headed towards Luke, but just at the moment he took a swing at him, Luke ducked causing the man hitting his own partner. Luke gave the guy a hard push in the bag so he stumbled over and both man ended up on the floor. Knowing he was outnumbered he didn’t stayed around to fight the guys any further but ran out of the cave as quick as he could, grapping the brown backpack, he had saw lying against the wall, on his way out. Nick had already started running ahead from the moment he saw Luke come his way and they arrived at the same time at the General. “What was that?†Nick asked panting with exhaustion. “Don’t know, but let’s not stay around to find out, get in quick.†They both jumped in the car and Luke took off. “Ain’t we gonna do nothing?†Nick asked. “Sure we are.†Luke said while he pulled the car of the road and parked it backwards in through some bushes. “We gonna call the sheriff.†Luke got the CB and called for Rosco. “This is Luke Duke calling Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane come in.†He said but was not given any response. “Luke Duke calling Sheriff Coltrane, Rosco are you there, this is a emergency, come in.†“This is Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane, now this better be important Dukeboy.†“Rosco I just had a gun pointed at me by two guys with ski masks. Over.†“Now why would that be any of my concern. I’ve got more important things to do than caring about some Duke. You just probably made it up anyway.†“I didn’t make it up, and if you don’t care about me, ya might care about that money sack they were carrying. Over.†“Money sack oeh,†Rosco reacted. “That sounds like reward money when I catch those crooks khee khee.†“Well if ya don’t get here fast there won’t be any money to reward ya for cause they will be long gone. Now I run in to them at the o’ll Indian caves and if I’m correct they have to pass by me now any second at Choctaw Road. Just in front of Millers Bridge.†“Choctaw Road that’s a 10-4. I’ll be over there faster than Enos can say possumonagombush. I’m gone.†Luke shook his had and hung the CB back on his place. “And that is the only law we have around here.†He said more to himself than anybody else. “Now how do you know those guys will pass her?’ Nick asked. “Just a hunch.†Luke said. “I didn’t saw there car anywhere but I don’t think they were on foot so if they had stashed it somewhere this is the only road they could’ve take, that is if there ain’t driving 4-wheelers.†At that moment a light blue Sedan came driving by like it was chased by the devil himself. “That must be them!†Luke called out. “Now Nick you get yourself at that backseat and stay low.†He said while he drove the General on the road again and started to chase the Sedan. “Why can’t I sit up front?†Nick sat complaining. “Cause I say so, now git!†Luke snapped. “Well that ain’t fair, I did saved ya bud in there didn’t I.†Nick said insulted but climbed over to the backseat anyway. “How do ya mean saved my bud?†Luke asked confused while he took a very sharp curve that swung Nick over to the other end of the backseat. “That bang that got those guys attention was me with firecrackers.†He explained after he got himself up again. “Saw they had a gun at ya when I followed ya in. Guessed I had to do something to get you out.†Nick said feeling very good about himself. “Now don’t you get to full of your self yet.†Luke said. “And I thought I told ya to stay outside waiting for me.†“Well ain’t ya glad I didn’t†Nick said smiling. Suddenly Luke saw a hand with a gun attached to it coming out of the Sedan pointing at them. “Duck!†He yelled just before two bullets just missed the car and one came trough the windshield. Luckily Nick obeyed this command better then the one’s before and had thrown himself to the backseat just in time. “How did ya get those fire crackers anyway?†Luke asked like there was nothing going on and they weren’t just driving 85 miles an hour on some dusty back road. “I thought we let you empty your pockets completely. Nick grinned. “Ya did, but I had a hole in my inside pocket ya missed and I didn’t even got them at the grocery. I already had them.†“Duck!†Luke yelled again. And again three shots were fired from which two busted the back windshield. “Darned!†Luke cold out. “If Rosco doesn’t get here quick..†He said not finishing his sentence. “You don’t happen to know how to shoot a bow and arrow now do ya?†“No not really.†Nick answered disappointed. “Ah doesn’t matter.†Luke said. “The reinforcements are coming even before the sheriff does.†Seeing Daisy and Bo driving behind him in his rearview mirror. “What do you mean?†Nick asked while he got him self up to look trough the busted rear window.†“Would ya keep ya head down, before I put ya outside!†Luke exclaimed. Daisy drove Dixie along the General’s left side making it possible for Bo to climb in the General. Nick didn’t believe his own eyes. “What an unexpected surprise.†Luke said smiling. “Guess they run out of bullets or they would’ve shot ya within the second there.†“Well they didn’t.†Bo replied grinning. “We heard ya call Rosco and thought ya could use some help.†“Well ya thought right their cus, think you could also pepper that guy’s tailgate.†“Ya bet I can, Nick pall, ya can hand me that bow there lying at your feet.†Nick did as he was told and Bo aimed at the Sedan in front of them. “Any idea on who I’m shooting at anyway?†He asked while he tried to keep the bow steady. “Nope.†Luke replied. “But I think they robbed some money truck and even if they didn’t I don’t take it kindly getting a gun put in my face.†“Can’t argue that!†Bo said laughing and took a shot. The dynamite arrow got stuck in the ground just behind the car causing nothing more than a crater in the road Luke had to avoid quickly. “Nice aim Bo.†Luke said sarcastic. “Well maybe if you were a better driver and kept that car steady I wouldn’t miss.†Bo fired back at him, while he took a new arrow. “Just hit him now would ya please.†Bo aimed, let go of the arrow and hit the Sedan right in the left rear tire. “Yeehah!!!!!†Bo called out while the car flipped over whit a bang and ended upside-down at the side of the road. Luke stopped the General just next to it and everybody got out of the car. Bo and Luke both pulled one of the guys, who were both still numbed from the crash they had made, out of their car and pushed them at against the car. Daisy had joined them now and hold the shotgun, she took from the farm, aimed at the felons. Bo looked in the backseat of the Sedan and reached for two white money sacks. As he looked in them he couldn’t believe his eyes. “Holey crap.†He called out. “This are all 1000 dollar bills.†And just at that moment they heard the sirens of Rosco’s patrol car heading to them. “Well that figures.†Luke said. “Rosco is coming to collect the money after all the work is already done.†Rosco came driving in with a enormous speed and caused a humongous dust cloud when he hit his brakes but still slid 10 feet further almost slamming in to the General. “Freeze!†He called out while he jumped out of his car holding his police gun in both hands but not seeming to aim at a particular person . “I think they are already frozen Rosco.†Bo said pointing at the two sedated man which were still covered by Daisy. “Yeah we already did the dirty work for ya so why don’t you just arrest them so we can go home.†Luke added. “No you Dukes just hush.†Rosco said “Alright I admit, you might got them, but I would have done it myself if I was closer by, that’s for sure. And ya bet I’m going to arrest these criminals. I know who they are, there has been a wanting notice on them since they robbed that truck from the larges bank in whole Georgia yesterday.†“Well I guess that solves that mystery.†Bo mumbled. “Now I’ll take that khee khee.†Rosco said while he reached for the sacks of money Bo was holding. “Just wait a minute Rosco.†Bo said holding the money back. “What about that reward money, that would be ours now wouldn’t it, since we ‘re the one’s that catch them.†Rosco pointed his gun at Bo. “You hand over that money now Bo Duke before I arrest you for obstructing justice. And you just forget about that reward money, it wouldn’t surprise me if you were in on the whole scam and decided to sell your partners out.†He said while taking the money from Bo. “That’s the biggest load of bull I ever heard Rosco!†Bo yelled all riled up. “We just risked our lives to catch those guy’s†“Just forget about it Bo.†Luke said trying to calm his cousin down. “That’s what ya get when you got a jackass for a sheriff., let just get home. I had enough of this for today.†“Guess ya right cus.†Bo mumbled cranky and everybody went back in their cars and drove home, leaving Rosco behind with the two truck robbers.†In the car and back at the farm Nick was more overexcited than a toddler that ate a box of sugar lumps. The cousins decided he could tell the story to Uncle Jesse could he would keep interrupting them every ten seconds anyway. “And than Bo blew the tire up, and the car flipped over.†Nick told Jesse when the were all sitting on the front porch. Bo and Luke were cleaning the fish while Daisy prepared the vegetables and Jesse was adjusting some leather straps of Maudine the mule’s bridle. “So Bo and Luke dragged the guys out of their car.†The boy went on. “They weren’t really hurt I think but they were very much shook up and they didn’t even try to run away anymore. They had two big sacks of money lying in the car and when the sheriff finally came he said they had robbed the biggest bank of whole Georgia and he arrested them.†“Sounds like ya’all had a busy day.†Jesse said smiling. “Ya bet!†Nick said stretching himself. The intense car chase had kind of worn him out, but he was still full of adrenaline. “You should have seen it.†He said still very overexcited. “Bo was climbing trough that window like it was nothing and we were going at least 65 miles an hour at that time†Nick tried to show Jesse how Bo had climbed trough the window stepping from the porch step on the porch swing but he lost his balance and almost knocked a pan of green beans of the table. “Well you just calm down now before ya hurt yaself.†Jesse said in a firm voice. “Why don’t use that energy of yours for something useful and look whether the chickens laid some eggs jet.†“Ah do I have to?†Nick reacted complaining. He rather stayed at the porch telling about the chase. “Yes you have to, and if ya finished with that their are some vegetable plants that need watering, so ya could do that before supper to.†Nick pulled a cranky face. He knew he had agreed on doing chores on the farm, but he didn’t like it. “And without complaining please.†Jesse added stern. “Al right al right. I’m on my way al ready.†Nick said and he jumped of the porch repeating Bo’s rebel yell as loud as he could. “Luke Duke! What were ya thinking taking that boy with ya on a car chase?!†Jesse shouted at his nephew when Nick had disappeared in the barn. “That boy is more hyperactive than a wound up monkey.†“Well it wasn’t like I had a choice.†Luke defended himself. “How should I know we would run in to those guy’s?†“Well you could have chosen not to follow that car and let the sheriff handle it. That you boys want to risk your neck pulling dangerous stunts like you do way too often that’s your business, but ya can’t include a kid like that.†“I know Uncle Jesse.†Luke gave in. “I didn’t like it either, but ya know what happens if we let Rosco handle things. Then those crooks would still be running wild.†Jesse wanted to say something, but didn’t cause he saw Nick coming out of the barn with an egg in both hands. “Shouldn’t we tell him he better get a basked so he can carry all the eggs at once?†Bo asked grinning. Jesse shook his head. “Let him walk a couple of times. Maybe he will calm down a bit and still have a normal night sleep then.†That hope was vain though, cause even after his chores, Nick kept jumping and climbing of things and pretended to be shooting with bow and arrow all day. When he was getting bored with that he decided he wanted to try real shooting though and Luke could prevent him just in time from shooting an dynamite packed arrow at the barn. At the end of the day bow and arrow were declared off limits, running in the house and jumping the couch was forbidden and still it took a very angry Uncle Jesse to get the boy in to bed that night. After Nick had refused 3 times to go upstairs because of not being tired Jesse threatened a whipping and although Nick wasn’t sure whether the old man would put his threat in to action he decided he didn’t want to find out and went upstairs. Luke went up to his room again a couple of minutes later to wish him good night. â€You tired yet?†He asked smiling. While he sat down beside the bed. :Nick shook his head wild. “No not at all, but I don’t want to get my hide tanned.†He said a bit insulted. “Very smart decision, but ya should have listened to Uncle Jesse immediately ya know. He shouldn’t have to ask ya three times.†“Well I did go didn’t I.†Nick said moping. “Yes ya did, but something else now, I need ya to listen to me for a while.†Luke said serious. “ I guess I should tell you that what happened today ain’t how it suppose to work. Normally a sheriff would do his job and their would be no need for civilians to go and chase truck robbers. What we did today was very dangerous and it wasn’t the smartest thing to do.†“But it was exiting.†Nick said grinning. Luke couldn’t help smiling. “Yeah you are right at that.†He acknowledged. “So what are we going to do tomorrow?†Nick asked enthusiastic. “Well there is a lot of work that has to be done, but if we have some spare time I could teach ya how to ride a horse.†Luke suggested. “You have horses?†Nick asked Luke nodded. “They are standing in the stables.†“Awesome.†Nick replied. “And I think Jesse or me will be making some phone calls to social services.†Luke said serious again. Nick’s face fall. “What did I do wrong?†He asked panicking. “I did the chores didn’t I? And I was quiet at the dinner table, now why do I have to leave already?†“Calm down, calm down.†Luke said soothing. “You didn’t do any thing wrong and you don’t have to leave already, but we have to let people know you’re staying with us. There might be still people looking for ya, you know. And with the state being your legal guardian we must have their permission, otherwise keeping ya here would be the same as kidnapping.†‘Ow.†Nick replied, not really at ease though. “But what if they don’t agree with it?†“Well, we have to see about that later then. No good worrying about that now, but you have to remember you have to go back one day. That’s just how things are.†“ I know.†Nick said a bit indifferent not wanting to let Luke know exactly how much he liked being at the farm. “But I just don’t feel like it now.†Luke gave him a smile. “Well we make some phone calls tomorrow and see how things are then. Now is time for bed and don’t ya stay up to late thinking of flipping cars now ya hear.†He said while he walked to the door. “Al right I won’t, good night Luke.†“Good night kiddo.†Luke replied and he left the room.
  17. Defenitly hilarious! Watch out everybody, the lama's are comming!!!!
  18. Sorry for your loss, Julie. Loosing somebody you love is never easy. Only thing you can do is just hang in their and honor them in your thoughts. lov, JM
  19. While the two women joined the men at their table Daisy went on taking orders from her customers. Daisy wasn’t the clumsy type but tonight she already had dropped two glasses because of not concentrating and thinking of Enos. She had always had special feelings for the goofy deputy but lately it seemed to take her up completely. She didn’t know why exactly. She didn’t see in him what most girls saw in her cousins. Enos wasn’t tough or cool or even very handsome or smart, but he was cute, honest, sweet, kind and reliable and that were all quality’s she looked for in a guy. Besides that he was absolutely crazy about her. Thinking of all this Daisy just wasn’t focusing and suddenly bumped in to a customer whit a full tray of beer in her hands. She tried to keep the tray steady bit couldn’t not prevent the classes from knocking over and spilling the beer all over the very large man with way to much hair on his face.. “Arhg!!!†The man cried out. “Can’t ya look were ya going, ya stupid little ****.†Normally Daisy wouldn’t let nobody talk to her like that, but she noticed the guy had a bad drunk hanging over him and didn’t want to create anymore trouble. “I’m sorry.†She said apologizing. “Let me clean that up for ya.†And she tried to wipe the beer of him with a napkin. “No, no. just leave it.†The man said angrily. “You probably mess that up to! Just do were ya good for and get me a beer.†Daisy thought the smartest thing to do was to get the man what he wanted and walked up to the bar. Bo, who saw the whole thing happen on the other hand, didn’t agree with that and stood up from his chair “Now that is no way to talk to a lady.†He said when he was standing in front of him. “Especially not when she just said she was sorry.†“Why don’t ya just mind your one business, pretty boy.†The man said with out giving Bo a lot of attention and turning his back at him. â€Well, you insulting my cousin is my business, so you just apologize to the ma’am before I’ll teach ya some manners.†Bo said in an aggressive voice. The man didn’t take Bo’s advice kindly though. “I’ll teach ya something.†He said angry and before Bo really noticed it he had turned around and punched Bo in the face. Bo stumbled back and kept standing there bended over, his face hiding in his hands. “Guess you’re not as tough as ya are good looking, pretty boy.†The man said while he headed towards him. Bo had expected this though and as soon as the man was close enough he slammed in to him as he had done many years playing high school football, knocking the guy to the bar. The man took another swing at Bo but missed. Bo turned his side at him and elbowed him hard in the stomach. The big man doubled up from pain before Bo’s right hook knocked him to the floor. Luke had stood beside watching, knowing his cousin could handle himself. But thought this was the time to interfere. Bo was standing over the man, holding his fist in the air, when Luke put a hand on his shoulder. “Think ya thought him enough there cus.†He said keeping Bo from seriously damage the guy. Bo looked at the floored man with disgust, but took his cousins advice and lowered his fist. “Guess you’re right. Wouldn’t wanna waist no time having to drive this guy to a hospital.†He said while touching his face with a painful look. “He had you bad there, didn’t he?†Luke grinned. “Well I didn’t expect he would throw a punch like that.†Bo said insulted. Luke wanted to react, but Daisy interrupted him. “Are you alright sugar?†She said while hugging Bo and softly thatching his sore face.†“Yeah no big deal.†He said smiling. “Don’t worry about it.†“Well ya just should have let it pas!†She said angry now. And slapping him to the arm. “That guy was trouble to begin with and you’re just lucky Rosco didn’t walk in. He would have taken any excuse to throw ya in jail.†“I was just defending your honor. Nobody talks to a cousin of mine like that and gets away with it.†Daisy could not stay mad at him and kissed him on the check. “Thank you for that then.†She said in a sweet voice. “Let me get you ya boys a drink†Bo shook his head grinning. That woman could change moods faster then he and Luke chanced tires. Together! While the large hairy man was dragged from the floor by some of his buddy’s Bo and Luke went back to their seats. Back at the table, the girl named Becky-Lee looked at Bo with admiration. “That was really cool Bo.†She said giggling. Luke pulled a mocking face. “I don’t think it will look so cool in the morning.†He said pointing at his own cheekbone. “Well you didn’t stand up for Daisy. I did!†Bo fired back at him. “No didn’t have to I knew you would beat me even when I tried.†“Now I still think you were very brave.†Becky-Lee said and gave him a kiss on the lips. Bo turned kind of red. For that kind of reward he would let himself get punched in the face any day. The boys kept their promise and went home at 12:00, what was a very acceptable time for a Saturday night. “You think Jesse is still up?†Bo asked from the passenger seat. “Luke shrugged. “Not sure, I think he’s in bed already, but I don’t think the man ever sleeps when we are out late.†He said with a soft smile. “Yeah, we have to help him of that, sometime.†Luke looked at him with a sarcastic expression on his face. “You coming home with that brose on your face will sure help a lot, that’s true.†He said laughing. “Neh guess it won’t.†Bo had to admit. Suddenly a sputtering kind of noise came from under the hood. “You here that?†Bo asked. “Sure do.†Luke said with a concerned face. “Doesn’t sound good.†“Shell we take a look at it?†Luke shook his head. “Way to dark now. We are almost home, better hope we make it to the farm and look at it tomorrow.†But the boys weren’t in that much luck, cause just about “a quarter of a mile before they should reach the farm the sputtering sound mate a large ‘plop’ and the General gave up. Bo slammed his fist on the dashboard. “Dang it!†He said irritated. “Now we have to call Cooter to come and get us.†Luke shook his head. â€Bo we’re broke.†He said on a sad tone. “We still own him money from that busted tail light two weeks a go. Now I’m sure he won’t charge us for towing the General, but I don’t like the idea of getting him out her when he just went to bed and we can’t even pay the man.†“Guess we’ll be pushing the General home then.†“Yep.†Luke said while he climbed out of the car. “Better prepare yourself for a long walk.†The next morning found two very cranky young men at the breakfast table. “Any idea what’s wrong with the General?†Jesse asked while he got up to pour everyone coffee. Luke nodded. “I took a look at it first thing this morning. Seems like a clogged carburetor, I tried to clean it out, and I think he’ll drive again but no way we’ll be racing it like this We have to replace it.†“Well we’re done then.†Bo said upset “No way we raise the money to buy one in time for the race.†“What clogged it then?†Nick asked while he feasted on Daisy’s pancakes. “Well that’s the strange part about it. It was filled with red clay but I can’t remember we’ve been anyway near Bronson Canyon lately. That’s the only place you find that stuff.†As soon as Luke had mentioned the words ‘red clay’ he saw Bo’s face fall and when he added Bronson Canyon, Bo seemed to be looking away and rubbed his face just a little bit to obvious. “Did you go there?†Luke asked “Well might be possible I pasted it shortly, two days a go.†He said while he went trough his hair in a guilty gesture. “What were ya doing there then?†Luke asked confused. “Well nothing special, just driving around a bit.†Bo said, but gave Luke a ‘there’s more but can’t tell ya now’ look. Luke understood this look perfectly, but didn’t seem to mind Jesse or anyone else being in the room. “Dang it Bo! When will you be starting to think with your head in stead of something else. You know you have to clean out the carburetor after you’ve been there. If you weren’t so busy making out, we wouldn’t have any problem now. †Bo took a quick look at Jesse and saw his disapproving face. “I didn’t say nothing about making out.†He said not really convincing. “But I wouldn’t be a Duke if I could do what you were saying.†He added jokingly. “That will be quite enough!†Jesse spoke very displeased. “We’re having company.†Nick though, had the time of his life and looked at the arguing men, with a big smile. He already noticed that Bo and Luke were bickering at each other all the time, but that it was all just goofing around. After breakfast the family took off for church. Bo, Luke and Nick took the General, who was driving again, but still made a concerning sound. Jesse and Daisy took the white pick-up. In the car Luke went on against Bo for awhile but had dropped the whole thing again even before they reached town. When Bo parked the car Nick didn’t hurried himself to get out. He felt stupid walking around in Luke’s old Sunday clothes, and he wasn’t comfortable being in the middle of so many people. “Come on Nick. On this pace service will be over before we even get in.†Luke encouraged him. “I was actually kinda hoping for that.†Nick mumbled loud enough for Luke to hear. Luke shook his head and smiled. As they walked in to the church Nick had this feeling everybody stared at him and when they found a bench to take place he knew it wasn’t just a feeling.. He saw the looks of the townsfolk following him. “Can’t I just wait in the car?†He whispered to Uncle Jesse. “Just sit over there and it will be fine.†Jesse whispered back in a calming voice. He saw how nervous the boy was. He put his hand on the boy shoulder as they shuffled along the benches and took their seats. Jesse first, followed by Nick, Luke and Daisy and Bo closed the line. As the service began, Nick sunk in deep thoughts. His mind was going over the same things he had been thinking of last night in bed. What was it with this family that gave him this weird feeling? He had lived with a foster family that went to church ones. They had wanted him to come along but he had refused and locked himself up in his room. Now why had he agreed then on coming today? He didn’t have to. Maybe it would have upset them and maybe they would have been angry, but they couldn’t have forced him in to coming. The idea of the old man dragging him in to the church kicking and screaming seemed almost hilarious. He couldn’t even imagine why they would take that much trouble in the first place. What was different then this time? Nicks thoughts were interrupted when everybody suddenly stood up. Nick just quickly did the same, not wanting to stick out even more then he already thought he did. The minister spoke some words that seemed to be some kind of prayer and after that everybody including the Dukes started singing. Nick was really amazed how everybody seemed to know the song. Most people held a hymnbook but that was really thick. Even if you had the words you had to remember the melody of all those songs. He became tired even of thinking about it. After the song everybody suddenly set down again. Nick started thinking again. The stupid thing was he just didn’t want these people to be mad at him. Normally spoken he wouldn’t care what anybody thought of him. He wasn’t staying anywhere for a long time anyway. Sooner or later he had to leave again so why go trough the trouble of obeying people against his own will? But this time was different, even as he knew his stay at the farm was only temporary, he didn’t wanted the Dukes to dislike him. A lot of songs, prayers, a lecture, two bible readings and one and a half hour later the service was over. “So what did ya think?†Luke asked him when the stood outside. Nick shrugged “Didn’t get a lot of it and it was quite long but the singing was okay I guess.†“Luke did you see Cooter anywhere?’ Bo asked. “Neh, don’t think he’s here, he can’t sit still that long.†Luke joked. “Hmm to bad, I wanted to ask him about that carburetor.†“I do see somebody else though.†Luke said while he nudged Nick in the arm. Nick saw what the man meant and sighed. “Want me to walk with ya?†Luke asked. “Yeah better do that, think that man is capable of killing me otherwise.†Nick said with an anxious expression. Luke laughed and threw an arm around the boys shoulder in a comforting gesture as they walked up to the grocer. When they stood in front of the grocer Luke took his arm away and let Nick do his thing. “Eh Mr. Williams.†Nick said. The grocer turned around and looked at the boy. “Ow it’s you again.†He said on a crabby tone. The way the grocer reacted at him, maid Nick feel rebelling again, but with Luke standing behind him he couldn’t walk away anymore. “I just wanted to apologize for trying to steel your stuff†Nick said a little forced. “I shouldn’t have done that.†“Well that’s a true thing.†The man said still cranky. “But it’s okay as long as it wont happen again.†Mr. Williams looked shortly at Luke and than back at Nick. “Rosco told me you’all took him in. I think you would like to know I didn’t press charges kid. I guessed you’d be better of with Jesse than in jail.†Nick hadn’t even thought about that anymore, but was still relieved when he heard it. “Thank ya sir and it won’t.†“Well that’s all good than, better run of now, I’ve got more to do today.†Nick nodded and walked away. “What a sourpuss.†Nick mumbled when he was on a save distance from the grocer. “That sourpuss did save ya from a criminal record there.†Luke said “Yeah I know that and I’m glad about that but that doesn’t make him Mr. sunshine.†Luke shook his head disapproving, but didn’t say anything. Nick and Luke joined the rest of the family again. “Did ya settle your things?†Jesse asked. Nick nodded. “He didn’t press charges.†The boy just said. “Well that’s very nice of Gilbert, guess you boys better see whether you can catch us some dinner than.†Jesse said smiling. “Ya bet!†Nick said enthusiastic and run of to the General Lee. The grownups looked at him laughing. “I won’t be coming with ya.†Bo said as Jesse and Daisy walked away to the pick-up. “Why not?†Luke asked him amazed. “Well I just talked to Becky-Lee and we’re going out for a drive with her car.†Bo said with a big smile. “Driving huh.†Luke said sarcastic. “Ain’t you doing a lot of driving lately cus?†“Well nothing wrong with that now is there?†Bo grinned. “You just don’t do anything stupid now and make sure her daddy doesn’t kill ya.†“You don’t worry about that.†Bo said with a meaningful look while he started to walk over to Becky-Lee. “She’s raised very liberal.†“You just watch out for red clay!†Luke yelled after him, but Bo just waved his hand in the air while he started running to the girl. “Where’s is Bo going?†Nick asked when Luke climbed behind the wheel. “He eh..had another appointment.†Luke just said. “No you just get of that backseat and drive shotgun up hear.†“Alright!†Nick called out and when he had taken place Luke drove of. About ten minutes later they were sitting at the edge of the Hazzard fishing pond. Luke had shown Nick how to cast the line and they were now both waiting for the fishes to bite. “If Rosco or Enos shows up here be sure to let go of that fishing pole, cause you don’t have a permit and they will fine ya for sure.†“Why are those guys after you’all so much?†Nick asked. “That’s kind of a long story.†Luke said with a soft smile. “Well were not going anywhere.†Nick said, really wanting to hear the story. Luke gave in. “All right then, but after that it’s my turn to ask a question and you’ll have to tell the truth then. Deal?†Nick doubted for a moment, but his curiosity won. “Deal.†He answered. Luke thought for a while. “Guess it all starts with Boss Hogg. That’s our county commissioner. The man is more greedy than Ebenezer Scrooge and as fat as a baby elephant. The only thing he does all day is thinking op corrupt plans to make more money so he can eat even more.†Nick grinned wide. “Well J.D. Hogg used to be uncle Jesse’s partner in the moonshine business.†Luke went on. “Moonshine?†Nick asked. Luke nodded. “Home made corn whiskey.†He explained. “But that’s illegal right?†Luke nodded. “Yeah it is, and when Bo and I got caught running shine Jesse had to make a promise to the government that he would never make a drop of shine ever again, so we would get probation.†Nick couldn’t believe his ears, and listened with big eyes. “Now like I said J.D. Hogg used to be uncle Jesses partner. He was greedy even then ,but with the years it became worse and today that man will do everything for money even if it harms the town he’s suppose to take care of. Now us Dukes believe you’re aloud to fight the system if the system ain’t doing what is suppose to do. That means we try to keep J.D’s corrupt plans from happening and he doesn’t like that at all.†“But what that has to do with the sheriff?†Nick asked confused. “Well Sheriff Rosco used to be an honest lawman, but when his pension disappeared in the election rounds , he decided to become the best lawman money can buy and because Boss has the money he owns Rosco.†“Man!†Nick said impressed. “Yeah you can say that.†Luke smiled. “Enos is okay though. He’s honest, but also loyal to his sheriff and to J.D. so that makes things difficult.†Nick was thinking. “Can I ask another thing?†He asked suspicious. “Sure, shoot!†.Luke said. “Well your Uncle Jesse was telling me about how you’re suppose to obey the law, but now ya telling me ya’all used to run shine. How’s that?†Luke had expected that question. “Well running shine was a family tradition long before the U.S.A. government told us that we couldn’t, and family is the most important thing, after the good Lord that is. Besides that, when we made whiskey, we did pay taxes on the corn.†Nick didn’t know what that answer meant exactly, but Luke sounded really sure of his case so he took it as true. “Alright my turn then.†Luke said. “You told me and Bo you’d get used of your parents not being alive anymore, but that ain’t true right?†Nick looked away. “I don’t know.†He said truthfully. “It wasn’t always fun. Dad used to drink a lot, that was why the shop didn’t run and we never had any money. And mom never cared much for us. She was always out, don’t know what she was doing but she was just always out. †He paused. “But dad had his good moments, he took Thom and me to a racetrack once so we could watch the horses. And at least Thom and me were together.†Luke nodded understanding. “You took care of your little brother a lot?†He asked. “Yeah, had to most of the time.†Luke started to understand the boys’ behavior a little better. “My turn again right?†Nick asked. “Right.†Luke answered. “Why are you and Bo and Daisy living with your uncle and not with ya parents.†“Well, Daisy’s mom died giving birth to her and her dad and Bo’s parents were in a car accident just like yours. The three of them were on their way to a family reunion. Brakes failed and the car drove of a cliff I believe. None of them survived. So uncle Jesse took them in when Bo was 5 and Daisy 6†Luke stopped talking and cast his line again. “What about you?†Nick asked on a careful tone Luke swallowed for a moment. “I was already living on the farm, at that moment. My mom was very sick at the time, something with her longs, and I wasn’t that easy to handle back than. I guess ya could say I was quite an annoyance, always getting in to trouble. My parents decided it would be for the best if I would go and live with Jesse for a while. Well my mom died a couple of months later and some how not long after that my dad had a fatal hart attack. Guess he just couldn’t live without my mom and he died from grieve.†“Weren’t ya ever mad at your parents they had sent ya away?†Nick asked while he looked Luke in the eye. “Sure I was.†Luke answered. “I’ve been furious. Uncle Jesse was much stricter than my parents ever were and I didn’t like the farm life at all when I first got here. I was mad at my parents, mad at Jesse, mad at everybody. Even when Bo and Daisy came living with us I spoiled the mood quite sometimes for everybody.†“But ya’all seem so thick right now.†Nick said. “Yeah we are, that’s because although uncle Jesse might be strict on a lot of things, no matter what, he always loved us like we were his own and no matter how much we messed up he always was there for us when we needed him. He taught us right from wrong and the importance of family.†It became quite for a moment. “It took some work straitening me out sometimes though.†Luke said laughing to lighten up the mood a bit. “Jesse was always there for that to.†Nick smiled softly he wanted to ask something else but at that moment something hauled hard at his fishing line. “ Al right!†Luke said enthusiastic while he dropped his own pole and went standing behind the boy to help him. “Just reel her in nice and easy.†Nick turned the reel as hard as he could and looked proud at his catch when he saw the fish coming out of the water. Luke took the fish and showed Nick how to unhook him. “Well done kiddo.†He said “Guess we’re eating bass tonight.†About an hour later Luke and Nick had filled their bucket with Fish and went home. Nick had been quiet for a while and Luke looked at him with a questioning look. “What’s on your mind?†He asked. “Just thinking about church this morning.†Nick replied. “You had a religious enlightenment?†Luke asked jokingly. “Nick shook his head. He didn’t exactly know what enlightenment meant, but he knew there was nothing religious about what he was thinking. “What about it than?†Luke held on. “Just that everybody was looking at me, and I didn’t know why.†Luke sighed. He had saw it, but had hoped Nick didn’t had noticed it. “Well there has been a lot of steeling taken place lately and this being a small town, when a shoplifter is caught, news travels fast. Everybody hoping to get there stuff back.†“Ow.†Nick said. “Why didn’t they something then?†“Cause Enos already filled Daisy in on that last night and she called Jesse about it from the Boars Nest.†Nick looked confused at the man behind the wheel. “Jesse figured things would become awkward for ya then this morning.†Luke explained. “So he maid some phone calls last night when you were already gone to bed. He’s been friends with most of the shopkeepers for quite sometime. He asked them to give ya a break and promised them you would give back everything ya still had.†“But I don’t have anything anymore, most of it was food and the rest of it has been used.†Nick said a little panicking. Luke nodded. “Jesse figured so much, so he also promised he would have some shine hold back to compromise them if they whished. Jesse’s shine is quite famous ya know.†Nick didn’t know what to say. Nobody had ever done a thing like that for him before.
  20. Sure thing there Brian! Besides the Duke no their Bible and that clearly states you should not gather your welt on this earth. (Sorry didn't wanna go all theological on ya'll and ruin the mood but had to say it LOL) True thing though people should share a little more instead of only thinking of money all the time. Lov, JM
  21. Wished I had dreams 'bout the Dukes. I'm watching episodes and wrighting fanfic's late al the time, but no dreams though. To bad! Guess my life just ain't that exciting I can't relate anything with being chased. (LOL) On the other hand, maybe it's for the better, cause I woul'd never wanna wake-up if I did. Lov, JM
  22. Back at the Duke farm the spare room was all set and everybody was sitting in the living room again. Nick had noticed Bo’s comic book collection and was all over it. “Man, those are awesome!†Nick said impressed while he was sitting at the table and went trough them. “This is a first edition ain’t it?†He asked while holding up a Fantastic Four copy?†Bo stood beside him with a worried face, making sure nothing would happen to the comics “Yeah it is. You like them?†Nick nodded enthusiastic. “Yes they’re great, but I like X-man better though. Nobody beats Wolverine.†Bo grinned. “Well I’m more a Superman kind of guy but I guess wolverine I okay too.†Nick looked a little suspicious at Bo. “I wouldn't have taken ya for a comic fan.†He said doubting. “Ain’t ya kind of old for that?†Luke almost choked in his coffee from laughing at that. Bo gave his cousin an angry look. “Well not a lot of people would I think.†He answered ignoring the last remark. “Actually it’s right up there behind cars.†“Make that third place and add girls to the list.†Luke said teasing. Bo pulled a big smile “Well can’t argue with that now, can I?†He said laughing. As Bo and Nick continued their friendly quarrel, arguing about who was stronger The Hulk or The Thing, Jesse came walking in the room with milk and a tray of homemade cookies, that Daisy had made that afternoon. “Maybe it’s a good idea when ya tell us a little bit more about yourself Nick.†He said, while he handed the boy a glass and some cookies. “Not much to tell there.†Nick said short and pretended he went on reading the comic books. “Sure there is.†Jesse said patient while laying a hand on the boys shoulder. “Now you can trust us, we won’t judge ya, but we have to know what happened to ya.†Nick sighed but still kept his mouth shot. “Why don’t ya start with telling us about what happened to your parents?†Luke said Nick understood this people would not give up, so he took a deep breath. “Well they died in a car crash. Me and Thom were at school when they told us.†“Thom is your brother?†Bo asked. “Little brother yeah, he is 5 years younger than me, he’s 6 now.†“So what happened then?†Luke asked. “Well we were brought to some aunt from our mom who we had never seen before, but she couldn’t take care of us. She was to old or something so they brought us to an orphanage.†“And you didn’t like it there much?†Jesse guessed. “No I didn’t. When Tommy and I were together it wasn’t that bad, but he’d got adopted pretty soon so I couldn’t see him that much anymore.†“Didn’t they keep you two together then?†Jesse asked. Nick shook his head and looked sad at the table. “I guess they tried, but id didn’t seem to work out. Everybody liked Thom ya know and that’s no wonder he’s great, but well, I ehh…I…eeh.†Nick didn’t know how to put it. “That’s okay.†Luke said understanding. “We get what you trying to say, so those people adopted your little brother and you stayed behind. When exactly did ya decided to run away?†Nick thought back. “Three months a go, something like that. After the Yardley’s send me back I guess.†Nick paused. “They were the forth family in 6 months.†He added softly. “Guess I’m just not that good with people telling me what to do.†“We noticed that.†Bo said jokingly to cheer up the mood a little. Luke gave him an irritable look, but Nick seemed to handle the joke well enough and smiled. “So you’ve been out there for three months.†Luke said shocked. “Yeah something like that.†Nick said a bit indifferent. “I’ve been traveling around a bit, hitchhiking and stuff just went where I found somewhere to sleep.†“And nobody noticed you were out there on your own?†Bo asked. “Guess not.†Nick said shrugging his shoulders. He didn’t really understand why anyone should have noticed or cared for that matter. “So that was when you started steeling?†Luke guessed. Nick shucked his head. “No, I mean I had to steel to have something to eat of course, but that wasn’t when I started with it. Hell no, Tommy and I’ve been steeling ever since we knew how.†“Now you watch your language boy.†Jesse said more out of habit than anything else and without sounding upset. “And that is not a good thing you’re telling us there, what about your parents, didn’t they know? Didn’t they were very upset with the both of ya?†Nick looked a little confused. “No sir, our dad always told us to go out there and make sure we had enough to eat. He only got mad when we didn’t†It became very quiet in the Dukes living room, cause nobody knew how to react at that. Nick looked nervously at the faces staring at him. Jesse felt like he had to say something, but even he wasn’t sure what would be the right thing to say at this time. “Now Nick I don’t want to speak ill about your family and I’m sure your daddy had his reasons, but that there is a sad story.†He started. “Steeling is not a good thing and no parent should ever make their kids do anything like that. Everybody is put on this earth to do their share of work. Now some might have to work harder then others and some might be given less money then others, but everybody has to work for there belongings, and if you can’t one way or an other, there are other ways out. Taking things that ain’t yours is just plain wrong!†“But sometimes you don’t have a choice right?†Nick asked confused. “I mean I know you aren’t suppose to, otherwise those cops wouldn’t come after ya, but if ya don’t have anything yourself, it’s not that bad right?†Jesse sighed. “You just picture yourself working very hard for something, cause most people have to, specially around here, and now imagine somebody just taking it from you. How would you feel about that?†Nick tried to think of something anybody could take from him. “Pretty angry I suppose.†He answered after a moment. “Right, now wouldn’t ya do anything to prevent anyone feeling that way because of you.†Nick didn’t really know how to answer that question. He never really thought about it that way, but still thought there would be exceptions to any situation. “Nobody should be starving of hunger of course.†Jesse went on. “But steeling is against the law and the law is there to be obeyed and like I said, there are always other ways out. There are people and services that can help a person.†“Except of course when that ain’t possible because of some kind of natural disaster blowing everything and anybody away or something.†Bo said jokingly in a ‘but that probably will never happen’ kind of way. Jesse raised his eyebrows and gave his youngest nephew a disapproving look, for making jokes in a serious conversation. “Well then maybe.†He said a bit irritable and without sounding really convinced. “But the bottom-line is when ya take something that ain’t yours, people end up hurt and that’s just wrong.†“Is this making any sense to ya?†Luke asked in a caring voice? “Suppose so.†Nick replied. He still had a lot of thoughts running around in his head. “So you’ll be apologizing to Mr. Williams then tomorrow morning after church?†Jesse asked. “Do I have a choice?†Nick asked on a skeptical tone “Ya always have a choice.†Bo said “Just be the wrong one when ya choose not to.†Luke added. ‘Man, what a family!’ Nick thought to himself “Al right then I will.†He said, knowing that just meant he did not have a choice “But that fishing better be worth it.†He added. His pride not allowing him to just give in that easily. The Dukes knew this was the best they could achieve in one day and left it at that. “Good then.†Jesse said. “I think we better call it a night for ya then, and get ya of to bed. Tomorrow is a early morning. Toothbrush and pajamas if you please them, lie ready on your bed.†“Oh, no need to, I’m not tired yet.†Nick replied casual, but the looks he was given by Jesse and Luke told him that wasn’t a acceptable response. “Allright, allright, no need to get wound up, I’m gone already.†He said a bit cross and he wanted to get upstairs. “He kid!†Bo called after him in a heavy voice. “What!?†Nick called out while he turned around and looked at the tall blond man, wondering what he did wrong this time. “Here take this one with ya.†Bo just said and handed him the first edition comic book. “Ya can read it in bed before falling in to sleep.†Nick stared amazed at the comic before accepting it. “Ow, eh..thanx.†He said feeling very stupid for his reaction. “Don’t mention it.†Bo said “Just keep it in one piece if ya can. Good night now.†“Yeah sure, good night.†Nick mumbled still a bit stunned and hurried upstairs. The men watched him go up the stairs and shook their heads. “So what are we going to do tonight?†Bo asked his cousin when Nick had disappeared “Well, we told those little ladies in the Boars Nest yesterday we would be back tonight now didn’t we.†Luke said “Yes sir we did and a Duke never breaks his promise.†“Sounds like a plan than.†“Now you two hold it for a second.†Jesse interrupted them. “With that young man with us tomorrow morning I don’t want you two sitting trough service as a couple zombies ya hear.†“Don’t worry uncle Jesse we won’t be back that late.†Luke said. “And Bo won’t be drinking so he sure be as fit as a fiddle tomorrow.†“Why ain’t I drinking?†Bo said almost insulted. “I’m 21 for quite some time now ya know. I don’t need you smuggling me drinks no more.†“Yeah two whole months that’s true, but you’re also driving tonight.†Luke said as that was an obvious thing. “And why is that then?†“Well you always want to.†Luke grinned “Not when we go to the Boars Nest I don’t!†Bo was getting quite riled up. “Alright, alright, I make ya a deal.†Luke said while he headed to the stairs. “ We split it fare and square I drive us to the Boars Nest and you drive us back. Alright?†“Alright!†Said Bo enthusiastic not yet realizing what is was he had agreed to. After a few seconds it hit hem though. “Now that was just down right mean Luke!†He called out to his cousin who was already halfway up the stairs. “You knew I would fall for that.†“Sure did cus. Now why don’t ya heat up the General for me in the meantime, I’ll be down in a sec.†Bo couldn’t believe he had been this stupid and sat down sulking. Upstairs Luke knocked on the door of the guestroom and walked in. Nick was standing in front of the window wearing his pajama trousers. “Thinking of sneaking off?†Luke kidded. Nick gave him a small smile. “No just thinking.†“Better save the thinking for tomorrow and go to bed now.†Nick nodded and stepped in to bed. “You know, we’ve been telling you a whole lot of stuff we expect from ya today, but if we can do anything for you I want you to tell me okay.†“Yeah sure.†Nick said a little ill at ease. “Wouldn’t know anything though.†“That’s okay. Just let me know if ya do.†“What time do we have to get up in the morning?†“Well the farm life starts early, with the animals have to be taken care of before service, but I guess we’ll wake ya at 8 then you have ‘bout an hour to get yourself ready and we’re leaving at 9†Nick nodded. “Alright see ya in the morning then.†Luke said while he walked to the door. “Sleep well now.†“See ya in the morning.†Nick replied. The boy doubted for a second but then called just before Luke closed the door. “He Luke!†“Yeah?†Luke reacted opening the door again. “I’ve never been fishing before.†Nick said like it was a confession. Luke smiled. “Well then me and Bo will teach ya some things. You just make sure you fit enough tomorrow okay?†“Okay.†Luke closed they door and after waiting a couple of seconds he saw the chink of light that run under it disappearing. About an half hour later Bo, Luke and Cooter sat at a table in the Boars Nest. Luke had given in on driving anyway, so he was the only one with a Coke while they others enjoyed their beers.†“Guess you guys didn’t really impress those girls last night.†Cooter joked. “They ain’t here yet.†“Well maybe their daddy’s heard about us and didn’t let them.†Bo grinned. “Well that won’t be the first time would it be Lukas?†Cooter asked. Luke had been sunken in thoughts though and didn’t react. “Watch up with him?†Cooter asked worried now. Bo pulled a mocking face. ‘He’s like that ever since we run in to that kid.†He gave Luke a elbow in the ribs to shake him up. “Luke I swear it if ya don’t let it go now I go searching for better looking company.†Bo said annoyed. “Alright I’m sorry.†Luke admitted. “What were ya saying Cooter?†Cooter made a indifferent hand gesture “Nothing special, about something else though, are you guys entering that race that's hold in 2 weeks?†“Do dogs bark?†Bo said wholehearted. “Sure we are, we have to defend our title.†“Oh yeah, that’s true you won last year.†“And the year before that.†Luke said bragging. “Well get ready to see some chancing in that then, cause you might not have that much luck this time.†“And why would that be?†“Cause I’m entering.†Cooter said smiling. “Cooter, you were also driving last year, why would this year be any different.†Bo said cynical. “Cause you haven’t seen that new engine I put in yet. You wait ‘till she is tuned up and nobody can stop her.†“Well we weren’t planning on stopping ya, just passing ya.†“Well give it your best shot, but I think you might get disappointed.†He held his beer mug up.†“That the best man may win!†The Duke boys raised their glasses and Bo acknowledged the toast with a good “YEEHAH.†All the men laughed end took a sip of their drinks. “What’s funny over here?†Daisy came standing next to them. “Cooter thinking he can beat us at the nevt race.†Luke filled her in. “Well don’t neither of you all think yaselfs winners yet, I heard some guy from out of town is entering and he seems to be really good. Even did some NASCAR-racing.†“You know his name?†Bo asked excited. Daist shook her head. “Sorry honey can’t help ya there.†And she walked to the bar again. Luke frowned. “Why should somebody who drove NASCAR come to Hazzard to race?†“Maybe he wasn’t good enough to keep up with the big boys?†Cooter guessed. “Or he just wants a change of scenery. You have to admit we have quite some good drivers around her.†Bo added. Luke wanted to react but Cooter interrupted him. “Seems like those daddy’s didn’t hear about ya after all.†He said well pointing at the door. In the door opening they saw the two girls with long hair and skirts almost shorter than Daisy’s shorts. “Luke I think I’m in love.†Bo said smiling from ear to ear. “With the both of them!!!!â€

  24. In the living room, Bo was sitting at the table checking out his latest purchase, a Spiderman comic book and Jesse had sat himself down at the couch to read the newspaper. When Nick walked in to the room he found himself being the centre of their attention though. He didn’t know where to lo haok and felt very uncomfortable, what became even worse when Luke, who had stood beside him, took place at the table, leaving him to stand alone in the middle of the room. “So you’re back.†Jesse opened the conversation. Nick nodded and looked at the ground. “Now there’s now need to search that oll floor, nothing to see there.†Jesse corrected him. Nick looked up in shy kind of way. He wasn’t used to looking people in the eye. “I eh…I don’t exactly know how to eh …start this.†Nick stuttered. “Now why don’t ya just start with taking a seat first?†Jesse said while pointing at the rocking chair in front of him. “And than just say whatever ya have to say.†Nick did as he was told and took a seat. “I eh…I wanted to apologize for what I did at the table.†Nick said in a nervous but sincere voice. “I had no call behaving like that and I won’t do it again. If I’m still aloud to stay that is.†Although Jesse had been quite upset with the boy, he could see that Nick really meant what he said and he valued that. “Well you sure were behaving badly.†Jesse said, starting of a bit stern, to ease up after it. “But I do appreciate you’re willing to admit that now, so apology accepted. Let’s just call it a bad start and leave it at that.†Jesse paused and looked at Nick for a moment. “Now to answer your question. we said you could stay here for the time being and that offer still stands, but we have to make some things very clear then.†Even though Jesse’s voice had sounded quite friendly, Nick couldn’t help looking at the floor again. Jesse saw it but didn’t say anything about it. “In this house.†He explained. “We take a couple of things very serious and one of them is our faith in the Lord and our task to serve Him. We expect you to show some respect for that as long as you’re in this house, and because we can’t leave ya alone at the farm that also means ya have to join us at church tomorrow morning.†Nick put up a complaining face. “I can stay behind by myself, I don’t mind.†He said Jesse frowned. “Well let’s just say we don’t know that yet.†“It ain’t that bad.†Luke added. “And Bo and me will take ya fishing after it, allright?†Nick sighed “Allright then, I’ll go†He said without a lot of enthusiasm. “Good.†Jesse stated. “Then a second thing that might needs mentioning, this is a farm and everybody helps with the work that has to be done. Now you are our guest and we don’t actually want you to earn your keep but, it’s no good for a boy your age to just hang around doing nothing. Especially because I don’t believe you’re attending any school at the moment. So you’ll have to help out around here.†Nick’s face changed from complaining to nasty. He wasn’t a big fan of working and besides that he had never been on a farm. He wouldn’t know what or how to do anything. “Is that clear then?†Jesse asked, because he wasn’t given any response. “Yeah sure, what ever.†Nick said barely hearable and on a cranky tone. Luke looked at him with disapproval. “I think ya meant to say ‘yes sir’ didn’t ya.†He corrected the boy on a tone that didn’t accept any objections. Luke’s words seemed to strike target, because Nick looked up and gave Jesse a sad kind of smile. “Yes sir.†He said “I’ll help out.†“Well that’s settled then.†Jesse said with a kind smile while he got up from the couch. “Guess we better get that spare room ready for ya then.†Meanwhile in the Boars Nest, Daisy was bringing everybody their beers. Although see had big dreams about becoming a great songwriter or a journalist, she enjoyed here work and served every customer with a smile. She was just making small talk with Army Hitchfield when Enos walked in to the bar. “Hi there Enos.†Daisy said with one of her most loveliest smiles.†“Hehhehhi there Daisy.†Enos stuttered a bit. “You have a buttermilk for me?†“Coming right up honey.†Daisy poured the buttermilk and handed the town deputy his glass. “So how’s the law enforcing these days Enos?†Daisy asked. “Very good.†He answered with a big smile. “Good enough for me to find the time to come and say hi to you.†Daisy saw he was blushing a bit while he said it and had to giggle a bit. “While I really appreciate it Enos, just as much as I appreciate you didn’t arrest my cousins for quite a while now.†Enos pulled a sad face. “Now Daisy, you know I don’t like going after Bo and Luke, but if Mister Hogg wants it I don’t have a choice.†He sad almost apologizing. “I know Enos.†Daisy sad comforting, feeling guilty that her little joke had mad Enos feel bad. “You’re a good deputy and I’m sure when you run for sheriff one day, you’ll make an honest town out of Hazzard.†“Well thank ya Daisy.†Enos said while taking a sip of his buttermilk leaving a white mustache. “I heard that ya’all took in that boy this morning.†Daisy nodded. “Yes, Nick is with us at the farm. He’s a nice kid I guess, I didn’t had a lot of time to get to know him though. I had to go to work right of.†“Well most of the townsfolk don’t think he’s that nice. There has been a lot of shoplifting taken place last few day’s. They can’t prove it, but now sheriff Rosco caught Nick at Mr. Williams’s store this morning they all think he stole from them too.†“Ah poor boy.†Daisy said sincere. “Yeah, guess ya right about that.†Enos said while he stood up from his bar seat and put his hat back on. “I’ll have to go again now, duty’s calling.†“Sure honey. Why don’t ya come around for supper sometime?†Daisy asked him. Enos gave her an excited look. “Ya sure Daisy? I would really like that.†Daisy gave him a warm smile. “Now that’s settled then, just let me know when you’re free and me and Uncle Jesse will make something good.†Enos was overexcited and backed in a couple of tables while he wanted to leave the bar. “I’ll do that, I’ll have to go now, but I will let ya know soon.†He said while putting the chairs back in order and stumbling out of the bar.
