    Goodbye Rosco

    I JUST found out that James Best from Dukes of Hazzard died on Tuesday. I had one huge crush on him. I made this afghan and pillow for him many years ago.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    How sad.... i had not heard that news. Amazing photo with your gift. How odd - just yesterday i passed an orange Camaro with an 01 on the door and thought of the Dukes.
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    Roscoe P. Coltrane I believe!!! My kids adored that show! DS that is 35 could sing the theme song before he could talk! He would scream "good old boy" at the top of his lungs!! Had an inflatable dukes car he sat on to watch the show!!

    We watched Dukes of Hazard in the day. So sorry, I thought he was already dead.

    Yes, I remember. And he was in his thirties even then.

    I had heard it on the news. He sure could play his character so very well.
