Dukes

When I was younger I used to love watching the Dukes Of Hazard. It was top notch in my books. I was young then but I remember loving it when the show was on. There are pictures of me in front of the TV watching it. I don’t know what it was about the show that drew me in but it may have had something to do with the car jumping or chasing. Maybe it had something to do with that Daisy Duke. She was always catching my eye as well. It’s hard to say because on top of all of that there was moonshine. You just can’t beat a good show about moonshine.

Anyway, I used to do everything in my power to be like those boys. They were my heroes. My first dog was named DD after Daisy Duke & I had her for years. Now when I was a kid I never noticed just how lacking the community was in color down there in those parts. I mean, there was even a confederate flag painted all across the top of the car like it was the socially acceptable thing to do. Nobody made a fuss about it back then even though it is cringe worthy in this day & age. I guess we have made a lot of positive motion in the right direction where that sort of thing was concerned. Also back then marijuana was illegal all over the country, now it’s only illegal in some places, and each state has its own laws regarding it’s medical use. In season 2 episode 21 Bo and Luke get arrested for accidentally picking up a crate of marijuana! Now this kind of thing is so less likely to happen! Especially that in many states the sale of medical marijuana is legal.

Not too long ago they came out with a movie about the Dukes of Hazard. It had Willie Nelson in it as uncle JesseĀ & he did a bang up job with that role. It was fantastic. It was the telling of another one of Boss Hogs misadventures. You know how he was always up to something? Well, in the movie he decides to confiscate a bunch of the community farms. The last on the list being the Duke farm. He frames them for bootlegging because he is just too dumb to prove it.

Of course, the Duke boys jump into action uncovering a plan to turn Hazard county into a quarry. That’s right, Boss Hog was going to strip mine Hazard county for the money. This just not pass as far as the Dukes are concerned. They jump into action causing all kinds of trouble along the way. When then smoke settles we see the boys saving the day yet again & Boss Hog gets just what he deserves too.

If you are unfamiliar with the Dukes of Hazard it is high time you get to know them. They are an American classic & I am sure you will enjoy the show & the movie tremendously. Let me know what you think, if you don’t mind.
