On TV in the series it was all Jessie Duke the patriarch of Hazzard, in the real Hazzard, My mom was the Queen Mother of Hazzard.
There was NO charity or person in true need that My mom didn’t help, somehow. Beit money, food or deed , my mom was the one that those who were in bat situations with no other choice from traditional resources, Mom stepped in.
Next week its Mothers Day, and pardon me if I get a bit teary eyed here, but MY , MoM was the true Queen more like Guardian Angel of our community, both Hazzard, as well as much of Idaho and northern Utah.
Many of my kin folk are upset as MoM made it to where I got the Wolf’s share of the Montgomery Foundation at her passing, but long before, none were too proud but to ask, makes me kinda mad now that I need their help I get a cold shoulder, while MoM was alive, she gave not in loans, but just gifts of heart some rather large sums of funds, sometimes with many zeros behind the numbers.
MoM was born in Confederate kountry, Gilmer Texas, on May 28th. She became one of a few lady Vice Admiral’s in the United States Navy, SIU. But Mom was the true kountry gal. She could make water run uphill. Which she did shovel and plastic dam irrigation of a 1000 acre ranch just outside of Hazzard Idaho, even being able to barn break a set of dairy cows. Unless there was a stranger in the barn at milking, those cows never pooped in that barn.
MoM taught a prize Herford bull weighing several tons, to be able to baby sit me in my buggy, as a mere toddler, in a big field, at times rocking my buggy with that heavy hoof.
With a swipe of a pen on the pages of a checkbook, a phone call, or a visit , my MoM could perform miracles for others as well as for me. Many that I feel have been forgotten by many ungrateful people in both Hazzard County Idaho, my kin folk, and many even here in northern Utah.
The song by CW McCall Roses for Mama says it best, I now honor my MoM every year twice in the same month, of May my MoM, by delivering flowers to her grave in the cemetery just south of Grace Idaho. That’s where my MoM sleeps, although I’m working to get her relocated from there to Utah.
In all true angelic definitions, my MoM was and is the Queen of Hazzard.
Quote of the Day:
The degree of one's emotion varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts - the less you know the hotter you get.
|Ephesians 4:15“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”|
