Garden Update 9/1/05

Gourds9-1-05

Because (ahem) SOME PEOPLE (doug n don) are complaining about my fascinating dog picture page being up too long, I am now posting an equally fascinating page with pictures from my gourd garden.

The top shot is a vine full of minis… the other a long necker…

Fascinating…

just…

fascinating…

The Comments

Doug Jones

GOOD GOLLY BUM!!! how tall is that thing?!

Doug Jones

I foresee a gourd animal here. You have a lot of material for legs… many legs….

Doug Jones

hey… you do a very nice presentation of photos. I like that matching green background with drop shadows…I need to take some lessons.

Dennis Jones

…that bottom gourd is about five feet tall… it would have been taller, but it hit the ground…

Don Jones

Don’t they use these in Indiana to test your parallel parking?

Don Jones

I have to agree with Douger here… your presentation is top knotch.

Don Jones

And also, thanks for getting those pyscho dog images off there… I won’t be tensing up as much now… but then again, that 5-foot gourd is quite intimidating.

Dennis Jones

I like the nice pattern we are making today with the three color-one color-three color-one color comment blocks…

It’s Here! maybe…

HOO HOO!… This is the big release date for my new Bible!

I dont know if you can actually go out and find one in a book store yet…

…but at least it’s up on Amazon.com now.

The Comments

Keegan Jones

Whoa, awesome! I’ve had the opportunity to see this bible first hand and it’s definitely a winner folks.

Don Jones

Woo Hoo!!! To coincide with the See With Me Bible debut is The Brother Jones Show – Podcast #7 featuring Den and Don in the naugahyde corner booth. This will be available for download later on this evening.

Dennis Jones

I anticipate that podcast with great fear and trepidation… I seem to remember it taking place about 3 in the morning after much drinking of coffee… no telling what was said…

Dan Lietha

As a member of the Dennis Jones fan population, I request heaps of shameless self-promotion (in the most humble Christian way possible of course 🙂 ) and insights from the drawing board on the See With Me Bible. Fans can never have too much information! I’m off to buy my copy! Dan

Dennis Jones

Thanks Dan…

If I remember right, this podcast is chocked full of shameless self promotion… and one or two questions on technique which I immediately dismissed in order to get back to shamelessly promoting the new Bible again…

Did I mention I have a new Bible out?

shameless…

Don Jones

Sorry to say, in the course of slicing and dicing this interview in the editing process… it has evolved into some sort of out-of-sync, garbled, Beelzebub-sounding interview. In other words, it’s a top-knotch podcast nugget!!

Dennis Jones

…some might say it’s a pieced together disaster… we would say it’s Brother Jones at its very, very best…

Don Jones

I can already predict it will be on our Best Of Brother Jones 2005 CD.

Dennis Jones

…the “Best Of” CD’s can be door prizes at this years Mtn Grove Christmas n Card Party!

Kelly – one of Gary’s

Looks Quality – where can I get it for 16.99 – amazon says I can get 5.44 off the cover price. But I think you are so worth it…maybe I’ll just send my 32% savings to you direct…yeah that the ticket. Can’t wait to see it.

marcelo from Brasil!!!!!!

hey , I want one of those!!!!!

<{

This is the best news of the day! Reminds me of that movie where Steve Martin’s character is so happy to get the new phone book… THE NEW SEE ME BIBLE’s HERE, THE NEW SEE ME BIBLE’s HERE, THE NEW SEE ME BIBLE’s HERE!!!

Dennis Jones

hmmm… …now… are you comparing ME or YOU to Navin Johnson?… because if you are comparing me to Navin… well… thats a pretty close comparison…

Casey Harpe

I just ordered my two copies. I feel kind of weird ordering a childrens’ Bible when I don’t have any children. Dennis, when are we going back to Romania?

Dennis Jones

Hi Casey… I believe another trip is being put together for late May… are ya going with us I hope?

Casey Harpe

Our group is going somwhere overseas next year but I’m not sure where. We definitely have not ruled out Romania. My aunt Becky (who was in our group) and I are going with a different group to Uganda in Feb. and we are very excited about that. We are going to work with an orphanage that has about 350 kids with 10 adults to take care of them. Can’t wait! Hopefully, I’ll see the Family Jones next May…at least part of it.

Dennis Jones

350 to 10?!… sounds like they are probably needing a little help!

Grandma’s Nicknames

September 12, 2005

VintageBroJo

Our Grandma Grantham was a nicknamer and to the best of my recollection my little sister, (Marsha), was the only one to escape one of her nicknames.

My older sisters, (Mary and Margie), were tagged with Mitsy and Bitsy. I’m still not real sure where those names came from.

(Margie had another nickname the nurses at the hospital gave her, but I am keeping that one disclosed for now since she is my fellow middle sibling).

My older brother, (Doug), was knighted Casey, as in Casey Jones.

Little Donny used to tease Grandma by calling her Granny, so she got even with him by nicknaming him Tubby.

She nicknamed me Speedy after the little Alka-Seltzer animated guy on TV at the time because I was born so fast Mom didn’t have a chance to make it to the hospital. (I was born at home with a little help from Dad and the neighbor lady).

So here is a vintage 1960’s photo commemorating the Brothers Jones of yesteryear… Casey, Speedy, and Tubby.

The Comments

Don Jones

Woah!!! This makes me laugh. I remember Doug’s Chucka boots. Boy, did they ever stink! Dennis you are so European by holding your Swisher Sweet like that. I always loved wearing fake dickies… just like Illya Kuryakin from Man from U.N.C.L.E. Also, nice fuzzy photoshop job Den.

Dennis Jones

…pipe down there, Tubby…

Doug Jones

hey.. what’s that stuff growing on top of our heads? Weird!

Dennis Jones

…well… it used to be the rest of the family… but not any more in this picture…

Dennis Jones

oh… I just got it… you’re not talking about my bad Photoshopping job… you’re talking about hair…

Dennis Jones

…Casey…

Doug Jones

Grandma’s house was also where Don got his coffee habit. After a meal, he would go around the table and drink whatever coffee was left over in the cups.

Uncle Roy

Your mom said Bernice King did some of the naming also. Mitsy, Bitsy, Casey were all named by aunt Bernince. Tubby and Speedy were named by Grandma G. (Your mom is here now and so this is a fact)!!!!!

Don Jones

It was the precursor to iced coffee drinks. I was simply ahead of my time.

Don Jones

Sure would like to know Margie’s nickname. My curiosity is killin’ me. Help us out here Mom.

Dennis Jones

…well, Uncle Roy… I did (at the least) get a small portion of the nickname story right… and for me, getting a small portion of anything right is pretty groundbreaking…

Uncle Roy

Mom said “I ain’t gona tell you”!

Don Jones

As curator of the Brother Jones archives it is my duty to seek out and obtain this highly confidential Marjorie nickname in some other manner. Maybe a phone tap is in order?

Doug Jones

I’m so glad to see that BrotherJones is distributing false information… just like the rest of the internet. We are on the cutting edge here in disbursing false information. To quote the president… “Denny, you’re doing a heck of a job.”

Dennis Jones

Thank you Mr. President!

Dennis Jones

…in my next journal article I will recount my fascinating recollections of serving as Ambassador to Guatemala…

Doug Jones

I thought you were head of our embassy in Nixa

TubMan

I thought you stepped down from that position and took up the Brother Jones FEMA chapter for Northern Indiana.

Doug Jones

I’d start evacuating Indiana right now…

Doug Jones

If I didn’t know better… I would think from this photo that you and Tubby are sharing a joint.

Don Jones

There’s just something about Dennis’ SPOCK-like doo that just cracks me up. I remember wanting those goofy looking glasses because of some comedian on the Laugh-In show.

Roberto

forgive me for intruding into this most fascinating family conversation, but this picture looks like the precursor to the famed Hanson Bros. rock band – which one of you guys played the drums? Is that Mickey Dolenz in the middle? -Roberto aka Onion Head (a nickname my uncle Dave gave me)

Dennis Jones

…thats not a Spock hair-do!… its Dads rendition of a Beatles haircut!… kind of a compromise sort of thing… “you can have the bangs in the front, but its not going to cover your ears”…

Don Jones

Hey Onion Head, This ain’t no precursor to the Hanson band… it’s the original thug brothers from Mountain Grove known as the Jonesy Clan.

Dennis Jones

…yes, we certainly looked like a tough group here, didnt we Don?…

Grandma’s Table

September 14, 2005

GrandmasTable

Well, since my somewhat factually challenged article yesterday on Grandma’s nicknames created such a stir, I think I’ll make up another one today.

Here we are sitting down for a meal at Grandma’s house in Walnut Grove.

Can you spot little Tubby? He is the one keeping an eye on Grandpa’s coffee cup and saucer hoping for leftovers.

The Comments

<{

I see a cheese smile theme here. Did you and Don practice this pose in the mirror together?

Don Jones

The big grins are symptomatic of a well-adjusted and enjoyable childhood. (and the fact that we probably just smoked some of Grandpa’s grape vines.)

Doug Jones

For the last time… PASS THE GRAVY! …and the biscuits …and the Folger’s….

Dennis Jones

…good to the last drop… the gravy that is…

TubMan

… good until you drop.

Doug Jones

hey… when I was in grade school… I used to read a comic book called Tubby… do either of you remember that?

Don Jones

I remember the comic NANCY. It was awesome.

Dennis Jones

…if I remember Mom’s story correctly, that is, in fact, the character Grandma nicknamed Don after…

Dennis Jones

Tubby… not Nancy…

<{

The youth of the brother’s trio appears to be easily distracted, while the more mature always seems focused (or is that bored?).

uncle si

this is my relations? why is my picture not in here?

Don Jones

‘Cause, Uncle Si … you were wise enough to move out of state.

Lynn Grantham

Do you actually remember this? That is “me” between you guys, right?

Dennis Jones

Yes Lynn, I do believe that is you… and you are obviously dreaming about one day owning a Triumph Spitfire…

Lynn Grantham

Ah yes, the spitfire, I remember it well. But first there was the Opel Cadet… wait that died on you, ooops…

Dennis Jones

HEY… that Opel was one fine little automobile… until I ran the transmission out of it… I left it sitting on the side of the road in Nashville, bought a Harley Davidson motorcycle and rode it back home to Missouri… the summer of 77 if I remember right…

Thinkin’ OutsideA The Box

September 15, 2005

BoxedDoug

I hereby proclaim this Old Picture Week on my page, and here is a classic.

Brother Doug cuts loose with a little Plein Air Robotting… or Astronautting… or something….

who knows…

The Comments

Don Jones

Spinach box… mmm … Popeye’s arch rival.

Doug Jones

Popeye is the reason I learned to eat spinach. I also liked Superman. At some point I got a Superman T-shirt (probably from sending in box tops from cereal) When it came, I put it on and jumped off the back porch…. I didn’t fly! I am STILL disappointed!

Casey Harpe

The sandals…excuse me, robot boots, certainly complete this ensemble. Every good robot knows that.

Dennis Jones

…technically, I believe this is not JUST a robot… but one of those hi-tech Spinach-bots… and, yes Casey, most Spinach-bots in that day wore the strapped robot boot seen in this picture…

BACK IN BLACK and white

September 16, 2005

DenDon

As Old Picture Week comes to a close, we present this classic 70’s shot, (taken by Brother Doug), of the little brothers hanging out in Dons car.

Dad always used to say Don whipped around the corner in front of his barber shop on two wheels.

I seem to remember whenever Don took a corner too fast in that Volkswagen, the drive belt on the engine would fly off, he would pull off to the side of the road, and have to stretch the belt back up onto the engine to get going again.

Man, that was one sweet ride.

The Comments

Doug Jones

I’m looking at that thing above Den’s right shoulder… is that one of those knobs on the steering wheel like Grandpa used to have on his car? The original “power steering?”

Don Jones

I’m commentless here…

Nick Jones Everybody

I love this picture except for Don looking like he just stepped out of Clockwork Orange…

Don Jones

Kel thinks I sort of look Amish here.

Don Jones

I remember what you’re thinking of here Den… the throttle flywheel would flip and rev the motor to FULL THROTTLE which was treacherous when you engaged the clutch. I would pull over and flip it back to the somewhat normal treacherous position.

<{

Looks like modern day version of Sundance. (see pic on weblink)

Dennis Jones

…once again, Don… if I cant exactly remember all the details to a story, NOT A PROBLEM… I just fill in the blanks with whatever is needed to bring the story to a conclusion… you know… it’s just the internet…

Roberto

Hey Don, you look like one of the players in that old 70’s band, Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show.

Dennis Jones

…you can tell here he is hoping to make the cover of the Rollin’ Stone…

Don Jones

Can we just give this photo a rest? I am defenseless here… My wife thinks I’m part Amish, my sons give me grief on the lack of a haircut… and Megan is ashamed to be seen with me now.

Dennis Jones

I say any photo that we have hair in is a good photo!

The Weasel Report

September 19, 2005

Weasel

The Brothers Jones have been playing fantasy football together since the early 90’s. Our game has evolved from a game on fax paper to a high tech internet game. My team is the Sheboygan Weasels… and this is our Early Season Report.

It looks like the real strength of the Weasels this year will be the quarterbacking tandem. I have Daunte Culpepper starting and Joey Harrington on the bench. Last week they combined for a whopping one touchdown. Of course, that came from my guy on the bench, so it didn’t count in my game.

But what I am proudest of is that my quarterbacks combined last week for a grand total of ten interceptions. They each had five. These guys show the essence of what Sheboygan Weasel Football is all about.

Yes, the strength of my team this year is definitely my two quarterbacks. The rest of the team pretty much goes downhill from there.

The Comments

Don Jones

It was pretty obvious the NFL.com auto-draft was not too kind to the Weasels this year. But if I know you Den, you’ll have those drop/trade buttons singing in the next few days and have that Weasel roster whipped back into winning form. I wonder if there is a Vince Lobotomy Super Bowl Gourd on the horizon for this year’s Stupor Bowl winner? An oblong gourd painted in beautiful aluminum patena… that’s Spanish for color.

Dennis Jones

…I am really wanting to draft the Burger King… I see him making plays every week… but I cant seem to find him on the free agent list…

Don Jones

He creeps me out. I haven’t had a whopper in years just because of him.

Dennis Jones

He is creepy, but have you noticed he is making highlight film plays every week… that guy has got game!

Doug Jones

ARRRRRR! Ahoy mateys! Ye needs some new recruits? Go shanghai a NFL vessel sailin’ in yer waters. Me… I like the Pepsi machine… got good hands…

Don Jones

In part because the D he’s playing against is so stinkin’ soft. Put him against McDonald’s Big D or even that noted cornerback Wendy and he’d be chewing the turf. That’s just my opinion.

Dennis Jones

…the Pepsi machine does have good hands, but it’s way too slow for the Weasels…

Dennis Jones

THE WEASEL REPORT UPDATED UPDATE

So far in four games Culpepper and Harrington have combined for thirteen interceptions and three touchdowns… (the three touchdowns, of course, came from the guy I have sitting on the bench)… I am sure glad Dante is a franchise player and cannot be traded… Whew!

Don Jones

I stayed up to the bitter end of MNF. And boy was it worth it. I love the crazy long bombs by the pathetically weak Redskin offense. The Tuna was beside himself… I guess that makes him a side of tuna.

Dennis Jones

THE WEASEL REPORT PLAYER PROFILE

Todays featured player… tight end Marcus Pollard.

I was so pleased to see Marcus drafted by the Weasels this year. I have watched him play for several seasons with the Colts. Now that he is with Detroit he should be a splendid weapon for them, too. He is a gamer. Marcus is probably the best player on my team.

NEWS FLASH: Pollard is out with a concussion from last weeks Chicago game.

Well… at least I have another quality tight end waiting on the bench for such a time as this… Jermaine Wiggins… and seeing as how he plays in that explosive Vikings offense that has piled up one touchdown this season I will no doubt be wracking up the big points with him this weekend!

GO WEASELS!

Don Jones

My initial thought here (really)… The Weasels are a bunch of retreads.

Dan Lietha

I feel your pain over the Daunte Culpepper problems. I’m a diehard Vikings fan and was AT the slaughter in Cincinnati. My wife bought us tickets to the game to surprise me. Boy was I surprised! That was a $140 investment into depression.

Don Jones

Dan, sorry to report but I had a good laugh there at your expense. The vision of a wide eyed. rabid Vikings fan with an empty wallet, a big-time loss, no Randy Moss… this is funny stuff.

Dennis Jones

Well Dan… as a Vikings fan you no doubt heard the pundits in the off season proclaiming the Viking offense would be even better WITHOUT Randy Moss… I never did understand their reasoning in this… how do you subtract that many touchdowns from your offense and get any better?

Dan Lietha

I am happy to report that my Vikings pain has been totally HEALED! Tonight I found and bought a copy of the SEE WITH ME BIBLE and now I don’t even care about the Vikings season! I’ll spend Sundays drooling over this wonderful work of art instead of depressed over another NFL loss. Thank you Dennis! It’s a miracle! 🙂

Dennis Jones

…and if the Vikings get things turned around this season that will be a miracle, too!

Don Jones

Speaking of miracles… did you catch the crushed spinal cord miracle on LOST last night? When the good doctor was working out in the stadium and that guy paused to assist him with his little ankle injury… what was it that he said he was training for? World domination or something?

Don Jones

Maybe he was preparing to play for the Vikes.

Dennis Jones

…looks like the writers of LOST stepped up to the plate last night and are going to deliver on a really interesting season…

Don Jones

We’ve just recruited another LOST viewer. Kellie is now in the process of watching the intro hour deal… and some how 48 passengers survived. Excuse me! Did you ever use a needle?

Betsy

You have two more LOST viewers here! Last week Andy and I rented all the DVD’s from Season 1 so we would know what is going on with the show. 24 episodes in 5 days!!

Dan Lietha

And to bring this LOST conversation together with the Vikings talk, go here:– Very fitting.

Dennis Jones

…thats funny… as well as fitting…

Lexie’s Picture

September 26, 2005

LexieLetter

A little girl handed me this picture yesterday at church. Lexie wanted me to know that I was not the only artist in attendance that day.

This is a picture of me on the left with my glasses and facial hair, and Lexie on the right… the two artists! Her note at the top of the page says, “I Am A Artist… Sincerely, Me”.

Its always good to know what you look like to the children in your church.

The Comments

Doug Jones

It looks like she is yelling out your name… her mouth is a perfect “D”

<{

Looks like you have that Elvis lip impersonation going for you.

Don Jones

Looks like Lexie has been traumatized by you, Den. She is in her “screaming, say it ain’t so” mode.

Kyle Jones

You grew your sideburns back?

A California Super Hero

September 27, 2005

SoCalSuperHero

Last summer Midway Baptist School (located somewhere in Southern California I think) contacted me and wanted to buy some Superheroes Of The Bible Posters for their upcoming school year. That was great, (except for the fact that I didnt have any Superheroes Of The Bible Posters) so I made some up especially for them. I found a place on the internet that could produce them and that is how I ended up opening an internet shop.

The school also needed a piece of art for superhero t-shirts they were making for their teachers. I had an existing piece of artwork (the top picture) that I tossed in for free as a way of saying thanks for prodding me along into opening a shop.

Imagine my surprise when I received a complimentary superhero t-shirt from them and included in the package were photographs of a real live Superhero created from my artwork. How great is that! These people know how to take a theme and run with it.

A Brother Jones Award of Excellence to you Midway Baptist School.

The Comments

Don Jones

I’m lovin’ those Super Hero short and socks combo. Can we get those loaded up for sale on the site?

Doug Jones

Den… I think you need a hat like that to wear around town. Spiffy!

The Official Brother Jones LOST Fan Forum

September 29, 2005

LOST

There are about a half-a-kajillion fan forums on the internet for the ABC television show LOST. Now there are a half-a-kajillion and one.

Introducing the official un-official web site to cuss n discuss your latest kookie theories about this show…

…its …THE BROTHER JONES LOST FAN FORUM!

please keep hands and feet inside the ride at all times

The Comments

Doug Jones

SocMo is definitely one of the OTHERS… and that guy down in the hatch is just his lackey… SocMo is the brains of the island.

Dennis Jones

I dont know about you Doug, but I started watching this because I thought there were going to be dinosaurs eating people each week… I still haven’t given up on that idea… perhaps Socmo rides a Mastodon into tribal council and saves Locke from being voted off the island?… just a theory…

Doug Jones

I think there is no dinosaur… what you are seeing is just SocMo letting off a little steam. He does have a temper you know.

Dennis Jones

yes… yes that makes sense, Doug… that answers the mystery about the black smoke… I have another theory about Locke being related to our friend and fellow artist Gary Locke, but I haven’t quite got that idea figured out yet…

Don Jones

I believe when Michael and Sawyer finally rode their bamboo bomb to shore they discovered that Jin had flipped his lid and had started a dairy farm. That’s the reason he was yelling “Udders, udders, udders!” at them.

Dennis Jones

Yes, Don the dairy farm theory has been floating around the internet for some time now… the other part of that theory that you left out is that it is so dry there on the beach the cows are actually giving powdered milk…

Doug Jones

My theory is Gary Locke is SocMo’s father. This would explain his wild and crazy behavior. At some point John Locke will pull off his latex disguise and reveal that he is Gary Locke and say… “SocMo… I am your father!” Then the fun begins.

Don Jones

Jin was udderly insane. This Locke theory makes alot of sense. So much sense that perhaps that’s the catch. If SocMo is indeed the son of Gary… then that means SocMo is the grandchild of John. It all ties together… much like the bamboo raft. BUT!… is the shark really dead or was that just a flesh wound?

Dennis Jones

hmmm… some excellent thinking going on today from the Brothers Jones… I cannot quit pondering Dons cow theory tho… I believe I saw in the bunker… there in the background… not just some old time computers… but a couple of cow-culators… it all plays into the dairy cow theory I believe…

Don Jones

Maybe those other guys are banished Amish dairy farmers and they are coming on the beach to raise a bamboo barn…

Dennis Jones

…now that would explain A LOT Don… the “others” are a group of shunned Amish folk who are stranded on the same island after their makeshift buggy raft was blown off course by hurricane Katrina… perhaps their cows quit giving milk… became… milk-duds so to speak… they would have to do something… right? …going to the beach for a good ole fashioned barn raising makes perfect sense… brilliant… I think we are about to get this season figured out…

Don Jones

Now we’ve done it. There’s really no more reasons to watch LOST since we figured it all out. I’m switchin’ to MARTHA!

Dennis Jones

HOLY COW!!!

Kyle Jones

Just remember, for every Locke, there is a Key

Doug Jones

John (Gary) Locke: SocMo… I am your father. Join me on the DARK side of the FARM and together we will rule the island! SocMo: NOoooOOOoooooOOOooo…. …well, maybe.

Doug Jones

Prediction#1: Next week it will be revealed that Kate is SocMo’s sister. She will appear with two honey buns glued to her head.

Doug Jones

Prediction#2 The explosions on the island are nothing more than exploding cows… who can’t handle their methane production.

Doug Jones

Prediction#3 Desmond will reach the correct speed on his exercise bike and BLAST into the future… where Michael J. Fox will teach him to use a hoverboard.

Thomas

Great! half-a-kajillion and one forums on lost and yet no one is suspecting the Dog, you know Vincent. Runs off into the jungle willie-nillie and ALWAYS comes back – but only when he WANTS to… People go running off after him and THEN they have this “I see dead people” experience… Hmmm … And has anyone checked his dog tag number? If you look closely in Episode 5, season 1, the number is 7970! While this number isn’t the sum of the numbers on the side of the hatch (4 8 15 16 23 42), it’s VERY interesting these numbers have NO relationship to anything that’s happened to anyone on the plane! And, it turns out, the dog’s former owner did own a dairy farm. Why did Vincent bring them all here? Everyone, aside from Walt, on Oceanic Flight 815 is a cat lover … This has driven Vincent to kidnap Walt and keep him safe, while trying to quarantine everyone else on the island. I think I’ve proved my point on this … Excellent discussion guys!

Doug Jones

4 8 15 16 23 42… HUT! Excellent work Thomas! It’s ALWAYS the DOG… unless there is a butler… and I haven’t seen a butler yet. The mastermind of the entire deal is a small, 300 year old Amish farmer… YODER. He wants the dog to heard his cows to the barn that is being raised on the beach by the OTHERS.

Don Jones

Man, that’s deep. Who would’ve thought Walt (Disney) was Vincent’s (Van Gogh) evil twin?

Don Jones

I think those are the same signals that Daunte Culpepper has been utilizing with the Vikings this year… no wonder they’ve LOST!

Doug Jones

Vincent… yeah… Vincent…. and he always goes out at night… Starry Starry Night….

Dennis Jones

wow… I thought I had this all figured out until Doug and Thomas came in with these new scenarios… both very plausible… I may have to watch again next week now…

Fox Mulder

“The truth is out there…. and you find it on BrotherJones dot com”

Dennis Jones

…thats ‘cause we are all sitting around here with our home made tin foil anti-alien protective helmets on… we are still able to think for ourselves…

Thomas

I wasn’t going to go into the play calling and Da Vincent code, but since you seem to be a rather open minded group here, I’ll go a bit further … Vincent actually came up with this code – the REAL Da Vinci code (4 8 15 16 23 42) … He knew this would create havoc whenever used ( just look at Hurley’s problems when used for the lottery) after an experiment with some Chickens that ended rather grotesquely … Unfortunately, on a recent trip, a certain QB for a certain team, based in Wisconsin, took a trip to nearby Amish Dairy farm to pick up some of his favorite cheese, saw the numbers etched on the side of a doghouse and thought he might try them in the upcoming season (considering they didn’t have much of an offensive line any longer, what could it hurt, he thought) … Well, this is all a spin-off of what Vincent’s original intentions were, but, suffice to say, they have had serious ramifications upon a certain team in Green Bay. Next time Green Bay plays, notice what NUMBER is on the starting QB’s jersey and how many YEARS experience he has… And just look at the LOST expression on his face often exhibited … Coincidence? I think not.

Nick Jones Everybody

ok spoiler warning…. here is what’s really going on. We all know Charlie’s past…. he’s a hobbit. not just any hobbit… he is a good personal friend of Frodo. Now Frodo is in possession of this ring that a lot of people want…. These people want it so much that they would be willing to crash a plane just to get their hands on it…. coincidence? look at the number sequence…

4 – number of hobbit friends that Frodo has
8- 4 is half of 8, hobbits are half the size of people.
15- 1 minus 5 equals negative four, if you drop the negative you again have the number of hobbit friends…
16- 6-1 equals 5… the number of letters in FRODO
23 – 2+3 equals 5 also the number of letters in Frodo.
42- this is a stupid number and was just thrown in to confuse everyone…

In support of the cow theory however… The first thing that Jack said when he saw Desmond was Mooo…

Don Jones

I’d like to direct the attention back to the DON journal for a moment for an updated picture that is worth the wait on dial-up… (Den, that’s you.) Nick, can you help me with my taxes next year? Your number crunchin’ is fugh-naugh-men-nul.

Doug Jones

Once me and some hobbits were hanging around with Leonardo and I caught the Da Vinci cold. Used a TON of tissues blowing my nose.

Thomas

Filthy Hobbitss

Dennis Jones

…oh man… NICK… I couldn’t help myself even tho you had a spoiler warning up and I read your inside information on the show anyway… you just RUINED it for me… thanks a lot…

Don Jones

Who’s Charlie?

Dennis Jones

Don I told you to watch season one with your boys…

Dennis Jones

ok, ok, I will tell you who Charlie is… Charlie actually really is the hobbit on the show… apparently after saving Narnia the hobbits put together a hard rockin’ band named OrcShaft and toured quite extensively… he was trying to get the band back together when the plane went down…

Don Jones

I obviously overlooked this critical piece of information in the Season 1 hour summary.
I feel short changed. Seems like OrcShaft was one of those one hit wonder groups. SocMo worked as a roadie for their Aussie Tour.

Mason Jones

Uncle Denny the only problem with your Charlie theory is that he has never been to Narnia but maybe MIDDLE EARTH.

Dennis Jones

hmmm… …are you sure about that Mason? …because I seem to remember the first thing the hobbits did after saving Narnia was play an OrcShaft concert at some big stadium there and they had plenty of Turkish Delight for everyone in attendance…

Dennis Jones

…by the way Don, since you are new to the show this season and did not seem to know who Charlie the hobbit was, you might need to know this about him too… he is an addict… he is hooked on the Turkish Delight… sad, but true… and that little statue of the Mother Mary he keeps in his little hobbit knapsack… its full of the stuff…
