    Back to normal. Antibiotics work! (probably shouldn't us the word normal. Folks 'round here know I've never been that)

    Surgery’s done. All went well. Surgeon thinks he got it all. Will follow up with an endoscopy in 6-12 months to double check. Home resting now. Feels like Maudine kicked me in the chest, but that should go away soon.

    Hi folks! Just checking in. I have felt pretty horrible the last few weeks, blood sugar and GI issues. Saw my doc yesterday and she helped me sort a few things out. Stocked up on a ton of Gatorade for the electrolytes. Feeling better today. Can't wait until next Tuesday is over and I can get on to recovery!

    Roth Potter reacted to RogerDuke in Ray Kohn's Dukes Show   
    Well, no surprise here...Ray and his staff put on another fantastic Dukes event. Of course this one was a little different. I arrived at 6:00 and the first person I bumped into was my favorite stuntman, Mike. We talked outside the building for awhile, catching up on life in general. It was good to see him again after that scare he gave me at the last stunt show. But tonight wasn't a stunt show so it was nice to know I didn't have to worry about any of my friends getting scuffed up. It was the premier of Ray's movie so the only danger was slipping on spilled popcorn. 
    I walked into the massive ballroom amazed at it's size. Scattered in different places was the General Lee, Daisy's Jeep, and two patrol cars, (Rosco's and Big Ed's). The Bandit and KITT were also there. It was $15 to get in (it would have been cheaper if I would have bought it in advance). I got my hand stamped and immediately went over to check out the General. Byron Cherry was nearby so I waited for the people who were talking to him to leave and went over. I had met him in 2014 and he behaved the same this time. He is super friendly, talkative and high energy. Like Enos (who was at Ray's stunt show last year) he is also a southern gentleman....born in Atlanta....and is very easy to talk to. You immediately feel relaxed around him. I asked a lot of questions, like what it was like when he first found out he was going to be a Duke boy, if he ever witnessed any stunts (he watched 6), what were his other hobbies and interests, his friendships with cast members other acting jobs, etc etc. Thankfully I got the time with him I was hoping for. 
    Before the movie I chatted with other stunt show folks and fans and made some new friends along the way. Then, the main event. Byron spoke to the crowd and the movie began. It is called "Stuntlife, the Wild Ride". It is the story of Ray and the stunt crew and his family. It was made by Highway Pictures and directed by Aj Satterfield. Only one word is needed to sum it up..."WOW!....I'll use more though. It's an hour and a half long and was so professionally made it is no different than any high quality made movie you'd see in a theater. I'll skip the details of how well made it was but it was truly perfect in every way. Highway Pictures is one class act. Sonny Shroyer, Tom Wopat and Byron also make appearances in it. I think my favorite part was Ray showing and describing each of his 22 General Lee jumps, and adding if he was hurt and where. I think they all were shown from more than one camera angle...some from several angles. Every time he said he wasn't hurt on a particular one I felt a sigh of relief.  I've only seen a few so it was really cool to have a collection of them in order. (I bought the DVD before I left). Then there was the stunts of the other drivers. Some of them were pretty detailed and others were just quick scenes. The music that went with all the jumps and stunts was amazing. Everybody who was anybody with the stunt show was interviewed with the corresponding stunt and others behind the scenes got their well deserved moment or moments of fame....and there were many. The issue of safety was also discussed by several show members. The tribute Ray gave to his father was a tearjerker. When a man, like Ray who is larger than life, gets emotional on the big screen everybody in the place does too, especially me, since his dad was my favorite....no surprise there...he played Uncle Jesse, my favorite. Thankfully I spent a lot of time before and after the show talking to Dean, the new guy who plays Uncle Jesse. He's not new to Ray though. They've known each other a long time. In fact we talked so long most everybody had left and the crew members were driving the vehicles out. Then, as I walked to my car I bumped into Ray securing Daisy's Jeep onto the trailer and thanked him for all he's done. If ever there was a true Duke boy it's Ray Kohn. 
    Keep an eye on their website but I think he is planning something new....a Bandit jump... in south-central Pennsylvania on June 22. Next will likely be a Dukes event in August in Virginia. In the meantime if you live too far away I highly recommend you go to his website and buy "Stuntlife." You have my promise you will not be disappointed. I laughed. I cried. I yelled YEEHAWW a lot. You will too.

    More good news! The surgeons are opting for the less invasive surgery. The resection for that area is risky and my situation doesn't warrant that kind of risk. They're confident they can get all the cancer with an endoscopic surgery. Just waiting for the surgeon's office to call and schedule the surgery now.

    My limited vocabulary does not allow me to probably say the right thing. But I will say this. I hope you have a good recovery and get as close to your former self as is possible.
    I've got family who had cancer as well. It is very tough for them 5 years.

    Ernie Lively played Longstreet B. Davenport in three episodes: 'Duke of Duke' (S2E13), 'The Runaway' (S2E14) and 'Follow That Still' (S2E15). He also appeared as Dobro in 'One Armed Bandits' (S1E01) and as Clyde, The Guard in 'The Ransom of Hazzard County' (S6E20).
    Mickey Jones played B. B. Davenport in 'Granny Annie' (S2E10).
    Charlie Dell played Emery Potter in 'People's Choice' (S2E11), 'Coltrane vs. Duke' (S4E04) and 'Dukescam Scam' (S4E14).
    Morgan Brittany played Mary Lou Pringle in 'The Hazzardville Horror' (S3E04), and it's the only episode where any of the Pringles appear on screen. The house in that episode is said to have belonged to her Uncle, Ezekiah Pringle (Zeke), but he is never seen. The episode where the Dukes need to fix their tractor is 'New Deputy in Town' (S4E21), and they say that Mr. Pringle owes them money for a roofing job. The only other reference I can find is a mention of Pringle's Pond in 'The Great Bank Robbery' (S4E06).

    Great point. If you want to make a first impression here just show up with a General Lee. It's always a pretty effective dramatic entrance.

    Hi folks,
    My first time on the forum in a LONG time (in fact, I've just spent two hours trying to remember which email I used so I could access my old account).
    One of my goals is to post MUCH more regularly this year, but for now... It's a key date for U.K. fans such as myself... as Sat 3rd March 1979 marked the first time 'The Dukes of Hazzard' was ever broadcast in the United Kingdom!

    My all-time favourite TV series, that shaped myself, my interests and my character in so many ways. Literally my first memories in life are sitting on my father's knee watching the series (he watched it religiously every week, on the excuse that "he (meaning me) likes it")!
    BBC1 showed the first four episodes in a Saturday 9 p.m. slot, before a brief break and resuming a month or so later with episode 5, "High Octane" on Mondays at 7:20 p.m. (a year or two later it would move again to it's early Saturday evening slot where the series would enjoy it's highest U.K. viewing figures). Although I'm pretty certain I would have been tucked up in bed for those first four episode (I would have been 1 year old at the time), I'm pretty certain that by some of those earliest Monday broadcasts I would have been sat on my Dad's knee watching it all.

    Last year I pieced together the original U.K. broadcast history and order for the series (I might share it on the forum at some point actually), just to see what was shown in what order... and to try and piece together my very earliest memories; it was actually quite therapeutic.

    For those of us that were there originally (even us who can barely remember it), we were very lucky. Will never see the likes of such a TV series again.

    I knew this anniversary was coming up, but had a busy weekend and forgot. I could've sworn I'd posted the listing below already on HNet, but couldn't find it. It's from British TV guide the Radio Times, and shows details of the debut of 'One Armed Bandits' (NB. I've rearranged the original layout to make it more screen-friendly).
    I've just noticed that they misspelled Gy's names as Guy near the bottom.

    I think we may have discussed this before, but there are indeed a large number of expressions and idioms in the English language that involve the word "Dutch". I found a list on a Dutch website (that's not one of the phrases, and the site is in English). The article says that most of these terms came into use in the 17th century when there were many conflicts between England and the Netherlands, and the Netherlands lost the Dutch colony which later became New York. As They Might Be Giants once sang, "Even old New York was once New Amsterdam."

    Some popular examples are: a Dutch auction, Dutch courage, talking double Dutch and to go Dutch (a Dutch treat).
