Hazzard Halloween

Last night we brought a little bit of Hazzard County to Niskayuna.

Nolan and his best bud Danny dressed up as their heroes, Bo and Luke Duke. Their outfits came complete with big belt buckles and fake sideburns on Bo (Nolan).

We went trick-or-treating through Danny’s neighborhood with a miniature General Lee in tow. We also carried with us a small tape deck playing a continuous loop of “The Dukes of Hazzard” theme music and the sound of the General’s horn.

We were also accompanied by Chester, filling in Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane’s dog Flash, and a small pony and a Yankee player. The last two were actually Danny’s little sister Stephanie and, of course, Thomas.

I must say, the General Lee was quite impressive looking. It’s too bad there wasn’t some sort of contest we could’ve entered it in. Kudos go to Kris and Danny’s mom Marlene who did the bulk of the work, transforming our Radio Flyer wagon into the classic Hazzard hotrod. They each got in the spirit of things with their orange “01” shirts.

The kids had a great time. They were so excited for Halloween. Yesterday morning, they came into our room to wake me up. Nolan said, “Boo! Happy Halloween…trick-or-treat!” Then Thomas, who knows what the true meaning of the holiday is all about, followed with, “Trick-or-treat! CANDY!!!”
