Hillbilly Woodstick 3: Some highly nonillustrated highlights!

Weeeeeellllllllll .... we could've shown you Byron Cherry, our own Coy Duke of "The Dukes of Hazzard," up there on stage at Jenkins Park performing two Elvis Presley hits -- complete with gyrations. We could've shown you Don Pedro Colley, known to us as Sheriff Ed Little of "The Dukes," actually driving a Chickasaw County Sheriff's car for the very first time since the show's filming (yes, that's what he said). We could've even run a nice photo of Wayne Wooten's slightly mangled 2005 movie (screen-used) General Lee, there on display. And on top of that -- we might have even shown you the cool in-car simulation at the Hazzard County Stunt Team's display that makes you feel like you're really jumpin' that General.

Yea. We could have shown you all that and more -- if we would have had a working camera! Rats! But we can still tell you! And you can just picture it all in your mind, right? Right!

Anyway ... The Hillbilly Woodstick 3 Dukes of Hazzard Cruise kicked off in Trenton, Georgia, over the weekend with lots of fun moments. The cruise continues through parts of northern Georgia, some of South Carolina and North Carolina this week.

One thing we can show you, though, now that we're back home safe and sound (sigh ...) is a special item that we told you about in our August 28 post. Kevin Webb of Tennessee, the owner of that aforementioned Chickasaw County car that now has its own claim to fame in "Dukes" history, is the creator of the keepsake item you see below. He brought these pieces of art with him over the weekend. The photo we ran in August, of Kevin and Byron, was blurry and just didn't capture the quality and uniqueness of the piece.

If you're interested in nabbing one of these pieces of framed art -- all set for your favorite cast autographs -- email BRBTV.

BRBTV News Blog Blip: Hey, tattoos and vasectomies are reversible -- how about shortened hemlines? This week in BRB's yearlong My Mother's Clothing project, you'll see a little black dress that has come "Full Circle" to get fit for the Southern Baptist pew.
