DAD 2020

Dad, 

I am so lost right now. As I sit here, I just don't undersatnd, WHY !!! I prayed every day to God to make you better, I really wanted us to have more time together, not being greedy, but I had so much to say, so much to do with you. I know that when we talked when I gave you the snow plow truck you were very happy, I could hear it in your voice. I was over when you broke down on the phone. Dad, I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART !! I miss you so much already. Please Dad, Give me the strength to get through this. Please watch over Mom, so people do not take advantage of her when I can't be there by her side. Dad, I am so sorry I wasn't there on Monday when you left us.
Please forgive me. I am so happy I made it there on Saturday to hear you say my name 1 last time. We had no idea how bad this was going to be. Mom is being very strong Dad, but she needs your support from above.
Dad, I LOVE YOU FOREVER, I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN,
LOVE ALWAYS AND FOREVER
YOUR SON, Paul

Sorry, Been busy with way too much....

Hello,

Yes, it's been a while since I have written anything. Car Shows, Birthday's, Special Events...just so much......but there has been lots of tragic too in our life's.....The Passing of Family Members, Close Friends.

   I will be back on very soon. So much has happened since April 2011. I have had a few friends that were very close to me PASSED AWAY. I still have a hard time coming to terms with this.

   Glenn Call touched many life's while he was on this earth. He was just an amazing person, he was friends to everyone that met him. I have lost a few family members as well, cousins that we use to camp with when we were kids.

   Yesterday, September 2, 2012, Joe Korff  (  The Vice President of The Canadian Dukes Fan Club ) back when we started all of this, so it's his fault I got so big into this thing called " The Dukes of Hazzard ".

    The sad news from yesterday, Joe's Dad, Passed away, Stage 4 Cancer. Joe's Dad got sick about 2 weeks ago. Right now, I'm lost for words. Please forgive me. The funeral is tomorrow in Holly Michigan.

   Sorry,  I will start writing again very soon.

I have a facebook page you can add me : http://www.facebook.com/thecanadian.dukesmuseum

                   thanks,
                         Paul.

My personal page has over 5770 friends, limit is 5000, so it's locked down right now by facebook.

Covington Georgia Trip 2011 :Part 1

The Dukes of Hazzard Farm House from 1978,
was built in the mid to late 1800's.

This was one of the fastest trips down to Logansville Georgia, that I have ever taken. Lance & I left our home in Ruscom Station, Ontario, Canada at 5:00 PM March 25th 2011. We drove until 2:45 AM, we were about 50 miles from Chattanooga TN, but I was getting tired, so we stopped at a rest stop. We got up at 6:00 AM, and hit the road again.

When we arrived, we were both greeted by Chuck, the contractor, in charge of the demolition of the old farm house, and the Owner of the Property. Chuck was happy to see us, as we had only been able to converse through emails, even though I had his cell number.
This is the closest door that I was able to purchase from the Original Dukes of Farm House that was used in the filming of the first 5 episodes of the Hit TV Show The Dukes of Hazzard, back in 1978. This was in the other room, which I was under the impression, was never used in the filming of the show, but it is still part of the Original House used for the filming. The was one of the main rooms used, beside the Kitchen area, some one has already removed the fireplace area before we arrived. It has been said " That it was Stolen from the house ". The window on the right side, was actually seen in the back ground in the show. I was able to purchase the Window frame from the right side. The white window frame seen in this photo, is the one I purchased for our Museum.

The rocks in this photo, were actual Chimney Stones that have been removed from the home, these stones were actually seen on the first 5 shows, while filming in Georgia area. I purchased 2 of the largest stones that Lance & I could pick up, & place into Cheryl's Poor Dodge Grand Caravan, lol.... These are the Logs from the one side of the home, I bought one full length, it was just over 22' long. I had to have it cut into 2 - 8' lengths, so they would fit into the van. There was also one shorter piece.
Here is a Great photo of the Dukes Farm House, with Cheryl's van.

I convinced Lance to take a photo of Myself with the Closet Door,
with the Dukes Farm House in the back ground.
This photo again, shows the White Window Frame that I bought form our Canadian Dukes Museum.
This was one of the last things for me to buy, after a little dickering with Chuck, I purchased the Fuse Panel Box. I had to get Lance to remove it though. Thanks Lance.
This photo shows, myself holding my last purchased item form
The Original Dukes of Hazzard Farm House,
The Fuse Panel Box.
In this photo, if you look real close, you can see the White Window Frame ( left bottom, behind us ), and a Log, and a Chimney Stone that measured over 32" long, 15" wide, & almost 9" thick ( lower right side of the photo ).
Well, before we hit the road, I gave The Owner of the House, & Chuck a Canadian Dukes Museum T Shirt, for all of his help, as he did remove the White Window Frame from me.

For anyone wanting to purchase anything from this Historic Site.
