Hey, I Won Something!

BibleAward

I just returned from my oldest son’s wedding in Baton Rogue, Louisiana and found an attractive red box sitting on my doorstep. Inside was a Platinum Book Award for the Read With Me Bible I did back in the early 90’s. It has officially sold over a million copies and apparently you get a heavy chunk of leaded crystal to prove it. Being a hockey player, I immediately strapped on a pair of inline skates, hoisted the trophy over my head and skated it around our neighborhood.

The Comments

Don Jones

WOO HOO!!! That will look awesome in the Brother Jones Indy trophy case. Congratulations!

Doug Jones

the trophy is OK, I guess…. but that box is FANTASTIC!

Jason Bourne

Congrats. Thats pretty cool… Can never have enough trophies.

Dennis Jones

Don Jones

Where’d you get that jersey? VooDoo Mart?

Doug Jones

I am imagining thunderous applause from the squirrels and rabbits as you skated through your neighborhood…

Don Jones

And a walking ovation from a few deer…

Roballoo!

Congratulations! You must be rich with all those royalties from all those sales coming in. Donald Trump must be envious of the fortune you’ve amassed.

Jason Bourne

Nothing like a victory stance with a silver hand…

Doug Jones

I’m glad to see from your picture that you did not get the big head from receiving this award. hey, point up into the sky and say “de plane… de plane… ”

Dennis Jones

…unfortunately, I tripped right after this picture was taken and two squirrels and an armadillo were injured…

Dan Lietha

So now it becomes the “Bleed with me Bible”? Congrads Dennis!

James

WOW, a Gretzky pose and the tongue hanging out of the mouth like Jordan…yep, you’re the man. Congrads D

Garth

Hey, I helped you win that award! I’m one of those million buyers! Congratulations! My kids and I have really enjoyed it!

Josh

Congrats on that! I, too, am one of the million. I don’t have kids, though—just love the illustrations.

Bucky Jones

Dennis, congratulations!!!

Emily Albright

Dennis, We love this Bible! Isaac is using it for his Quiet Time right now, and he loves it! Congrats!

Flying, uhm… Bird Guy…

I don’t have any idea what this picture is all about. I drew it on the plane ride back from Baton Rogue. I don’t know what kind of creature this is or what he’s flying in, and I don’t particularly like the way the picture turned out… but staying true to the exceptionally high standards we set here at Brother Jones, it’s good enough for me to post today.

The Comments

Doug Jones

look, up in the sky… it’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s STEAMPUNK BIRD DUDE! I like it!

Bernard

Gee, I liked this piece until I read your own review! You must have had a bad seat on the plane, or worse…no peanuts with your drink? I do know what it is though. It’s a Pittsburgh Penguin getting the H, E, double hockey-sticks out of Detroit and back to the burg!

Dennis Jones

…yes, yes, I’m seeing it now… I had a revelation on the plane ride home that the Pittsburgh Penguins would fly home from Detroit down two games only to rise like a phoenix and smite the mighty Redwings in game three… yeh, that must have been what I was thinking… it’s all so clear to me now…

Don Jones

I caught some of that NHL Stanley Cup action last night. I must agree that this is definitely a Penguin… in leather. Steampunkin’…

Bernard

Ouch! Sarcasm doesn’t feel as good on the receiving end…all kidding aside I hope you can see that all I’m trying to do here is bug the greatest artist of all time into doing a Pittsburgh Penguin sketch! smile. you being a hockey player/fan and all. more smiling. Sincerely, Justin Brownozer

Jason Bourne

Swanky by far. I love this, its like walking through the jungle, you never know what you will see.

Don Jones

pork.

Dennis Jones

Bernard

Yikes! I guess I should be careful of what I ask for…judging by this little guy’s expression I sure hope this is not a prophetic illustration. Thanks Dennis! I’m typeless.

Doug Jones

puke… er… poke…

Doug Jones

we lost Locke on Lost?

Don

Locke had way too much color in his face to be dead. I say he was napping.

Dennis Jones

…yes, I agree… that was a flash back to a flash forward of Locke napping in real time right before he flashes back to the flash forward future… quite simple if you think about it…

Dennis Jones

…Bernard, I’ll get a hockey player done for ya, but this month is going to be tough, so it might be later on in the summer…

Doug Jones

Den… just flash yourself forward and do the hockey player… doesn’t time travel simplify things?

Dennis Jones

…the electo-magnetic field in the bunker under my house is on the fritz again so the time travel thing just isn’t working for me right now…

Doug Jones

I just put on my heavy coat and went down a deep tunnel to a large frozen wheel that I turned. Then my house disappeared. I hate when that happens…

Dennis Jones

…did you hear whispering as you were turning the big wheel… that was me time traveling by… I said hey…

Doug Jones

That was you? I think you dropped a coconut as you went by…

Bernard

…Lol! you guys are so funny I can’t remember if I’m here for the art or the jokes! And it’s all FREE! Except that penguin art. Send me a bill with an autographed ( hologram verified ) and I’ll be happy to pay it. er…do you barter?

Don Jones

I believe Jin turned into shark chum.

Dennis Jones

…I don’t remember losing a coconut, but I am missing a Mounds bar… is that what you’re talking about?

Doug Jones

If you’re missing a Mounds bar, I’d check Hurley’s pockets….

Dennis Jones

…that’s a good idea… nothing goes better with a 15 year old sack of crackers than a Mounds bar…

brett

Thats great!I like him.How did you put that penguin online on your comments? That would be awesome.

Dennis Jones

Brett, thats html code stuff… the code is…

…but you have to have your picture published on the internet somewhere first and be able to snag it’s info in order to insert it into the code…

Dennis Jones

…oops …I wrote the code for you and it published a nothing… oh, well…
