  1. I'm done and thru with trying to get a perfect Skipper hat from companies because of my Bluenox experience. It seems now days, that everybody is out there to screw somebody over. And I don't wanna gamble again take chances and go thru that again! People tell me in the Gilligan's Island groups on Facebook tell me about my Facebook post "You had me at Pakistan! That should've been your first clue."
  2. Season 2 Hazzard Connection) Augie Detweiller:"The Sheriff still watchin'?" Shoulders:"Yeah, just like he's been doin' all week!" Augie Detweiller:"I love it! I don't think there's a single thing that can go wrong with this little scheme we got goin' here!" Shoulders:"But if it does, we got them Duke Boys to take the fall!"(Both men laugh.)
  3. A Facebook friend she said "It was in India. That should haven given you the first clue. I’m surprised you got it at all"
  4. Benford Yacht Hat out of Inverness Florida USA warned me themselves before my Bluenox purchase They said "Buy a Pakistan hat and just hope that you don't get scammed."
  5. Friends... Beware when buying anything online! My Bluenox Skipper's hat in my Facebook profile picture, ordered from eBay seller Bluenox out of Sialkot Pakistan October 3 2020, shipped October 20 2020 and delivered October 26 2020, did not come with Gilligan's Island Alan Hale Jr.(Skipper) Twisted Knotted Intertwined Mouse Braid on it like advertised! The guy pulled the old bait and switch act on me, by showing me one thing, and delivering another completely different thing! The grand total of $78.29 and it still isn't what I wanted! Btw(by the way)this seller is a dead link now. His page no longer exists. I have learned my lesson. Can't believe everything I see! The moral of the story and the lesson learned is shop with extreme caution when buying items online, that you can't see and inspect in person first! Mom did at the time of purchase tell my brother her other son Donny a joke about it "They're gonna get my money and give Bobby something from out of a Comic Book!" Oh man, was she close! It's not something out of a Comic Book, but we did get scammed on the braid. The braid is a fictional product a style we did not pay for. We paid for the Twisted Knotted Intertwined Mouse Braid and he gave me Gorget style just a regular cap cord with a knot at each end. Like mom says "The Internet is a lie!" While not all of the whole entire Internet is a lie, some things and some people on it unfortunately are. On a happy note, at least the Skipper's hat came. I did receive the item. Albeit the wrong braid though. But it could've been a lot worse. Could've got our money, and sent nothing or sent a brick in a box. That actually happened. I heard a story about a man who bought something from eBay and received a brick in the box. I know a guy name Gary Scott Fine on Facebook who has had a similar experience with a seller by the name of World Wing. Gary requested Black buttons, but received Gold Brass buttons. When he confronted the seller World Wing, World Wing said "I forgot to put the Black buttons on, you can paint them!" And this was after he even confirmed Gary's order details back to Gary to ensure Gary was getting exactly what he wanted! There are many scams out there unfortunately. It can even happen here in the USA, but it's much more likely apt to happen dealing with overseas sellers. On a happy note, at least both Gary and I received our items, even if there was 1 wrong detail with them. I know why his eBay page probably no longer exists. He probably did the same trick to many other buyers. One probably launched a complaint against him for false advertising/item misrepresentation/fraud etc etc. Probably got him shut down. Karma came back and got him for how he done me. Bluenox was a scammer. He got what he deserved. October 3, 2024 will be 4 years since the order. The 20 4 years it shipped. The 26 4 years since delivery. eBay only allows a window of 30 days for returns. It's unfortunately to late for me to do anything about it now. I know why they(the folks who are bait and switchers)do it. Because they know everyone wants the Gilligan's Island braid. If they show the straight regular plain Gorget style Cap Cord instead of the braided one, they know they risk to lose sales, especially among the folks like me series fans and of his Skipper character. They show the Skipper's braid as a sales tactic/marketing strategy to move the product. If they show the braid they intentionally plan on using, nobody who are (Gilligan's Island/Skipper) fans will not want to buy their product because it isn't quite screen accurate without that correct braided rope.

Then, I fake all the other symptoms of the plague, like delirium, crampin', all that sort of stuff you know? An' then, man, it looks good, really good! Just like the plague! It was beautiful, really beautiful! Anyway, do you realize that there ain't no doctor ever seen a case of the plague in this part of the country?"(Tom Colt who was sitting down, got up to go stand behind Bo and Luke while explaining about faking the plague. He sneaks away to the General Lee, while he was standing behind Bo and Luke who are still sitting down on the creek shore.) Bo Duke:"Gosh, it sure is gonna be somethin' to work with a real professional!" Luke Duke:"You figure we can ever be that good?" Bo Duke:"I don't know.

Kew Kew!" Boss Hogg:"I'm talkin' prison! 2 years fer breakin' probation!" Rosco:"Well Boss, I wouldn't exactly call that breakin' probation you know. It's not as if they're runnin' 'shine or out there poachin' them little deers!"

Daisy Duke:"What'd he look like?" Luke Duke:"He looked mean-" Bo Duke:"An' ugly." Daisy Duke:"That covers just about everybody in here, except me!" Luke Duke:"Well, I'd know him if I saw him again." Daisy Duke:"Good luck. Hey, are y'all goin' to the costume dance party Saturday?" Bo Duke:"Daisy, we ain't got time fer that, we gotta race." Daisy Duke:"It's the biggest dance all year, fellas!" Luke Duke:"It's the only dance all year!" Daisy Duke:"Wait 'til you see what I'm wearin'. I'm goin' as a circus bareback rider!" Tom Colt:"Hey baby! I'd like to be yer horse!" Daisy Duke:"Ok sugar!

But when it's on the fork lift at Cooter's Garage, being hauled away, the mirror is back on it.
  21. Roger... The answer to yours is Denver Pyle(Uncle Jesse)and Sorrell Booke(Boss Hogg). Buck and Mickey held up a church Bingo game over in Greenville, and picked Hazzard County to hide in.
