"Dukes" fans celebrate a special VIP

You know, there's a reason we so dearly love our friends in "The Dukes of Hazzard" world. There's a reason we call them our very best friends.

A couple weeks ago, a special person in the "Dukes" world had a birthday. She's Miss Jo McLaney, fervent "Dukes" fan and preserver of precious "Dukes" collectibles at her former flower shop on the square in Covington, Georgia, a filming site of the first five "Dukes" episodes. We profiled Miss Jo in "Them Dukes! Them Dukes!", and we are privileged to call her a friend. Chad Fullerton, another longtime "Dukes" fan also featured in the book, decided to honor Miss Jo on her big day in a very public way. So we're including here, for your perusal, some images from that blessed day on the Covington Square ...

Both of these folks are lookin' good ... Here's Chad with Miss Jo, and the special plaque she received at her birthday celebration.

Can you believe that ole Boss Hogg had the nerve to show up? Turns out, he's a fan of Miss Jo, too! Who woulda thunk it?

Many thanks to Chad Fullerton and Denise Crews for the fine photos.
Also, check out the special video Denise put together for the birthday celebration, complete with a one-of-a-kind message from Bo Duke, John Schneider!
