BACK IN BLACK and white

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!

My Online Christmas Card

December 10, 2006

ChristmasCard

…hand made especially for YOU…

Well, it looks like I’m not going to be able to get my custom made, Dennis Jones Christmas Cards in the mail on time again this year. Hey, who am I kidding… I’ve never sent a custom made, Dennis Jones Christmas Card in my life… but with the invention of the internet I am now able to send custom made, Dennis Jones Christmas Cards to people all over the world… even Arkansas!

Simply print the picture on this page out on your home computer, sign your name in the appropriate spot, and place it on your refrigerator with all the other legitimate Christmas Cards you received this year.

It’s my sincere wish that the custom made, Dennis Jones Christmas Card captures the same magic and colors of the season for you that it does for me…

…and I mean that specifically to YOU, _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ! …(please type your full name into the blank provided)

The Comments

Don Jones

The only thing missing from this unique and quality Christmas Card is typos.

Doug Jones

hmmm…. baseball and Christmas… what a natural combination… why didn’t I think of that?

Keegan Jones

Hahahaha! This comment is a Christmas gift. Print it out on a piece of paper, wrap it, and gently place it under your tree.

Dennis Jones

Keegan… done and done! …thanks for remembering me at Christmas time with this lovely gift…

roballoo

I’ve always enjoyed your hand lettering on your works o’ art, and have wondered for a while how it would translate into a font, but this here font seems to go quite well with the image.

Don Jones

You could have at least added reindeer antlers to that baseball helmet.

Doug Jones

I wuz thinking a red nose on the batter would be appropriate…

Paul Taylor

Dennis- Merry Christmas!! Why didn’t I think of that. each year I rush, run to Kinko’s, and then nearly pass out from licking all those stamps! Seriously, I know your art is mostly towards a spiritual approach, but have you ever thought about doing St. Nick and a Night Before Christmas book or even A Christmas Carol? If you did, I’d be first in line to buy it. Have a Merry Christmas! Paul

Dennis Jones

…thanks, Paul …and Don, the batter does have a red nose… it’s just very subtle…

Don Jones

Doug wanted the red nose… I wanted antlers.

Dennis Jones

…yes …but I wanted to tell YOU that specifically, Don… I don’t know why …I just did…

Doug Jones

Don… the antlers are under the helmet

Don Jones

I also want a white beard on this Weasel homer.

Doug Jones

yeah… and a red suit… get to work Den… chop chop!

Dennis Jones

…but everyone has a custom Christmas card with a fat guy with a white beard in a red suit with antlers… how many have a custom Christmas card with a fat baseball player with a fu manchu mustache and a “let’s gitter done” attitude?…

Don Jones

My card is came out beautifully. I have received many comments about it. It coordinates nicely with my Ball-O-Lights decoration.

Dennis Jones

…Don, I’ve noticed a lot more typos in your comments since you gave up coffee… just something you might want to consider…

Doug Jones

I’m thinking your card will be an odometer with twinkle lights around it… right?

Don Jones

Wishing you 200,000 Merry Christmaseseses! What gives on my speling?

Dennis Jones

…now THAT’S what I’m talkin’ about!

Tiz the Seazon to be Jolly…

2006_12_14_DenXmasCardThe Christmas season for the Jones brothers is one which brings joy and happiness especially when it is time to get the daily mail. Even though the majority of our Christmas cards are addressed to “resident” there still are a few cards that are extra special and drive home the true meaning of Christmas. With the advent of digital technology, on-line Christmas cards have now become a quick and easy way to spread the holiday cheer and save the cost of postage. True to frugal form, Bubba Claus Dennis’ recent Christmas card offering was one which was unique and suitable for framing. If by chance you missed it, click over and print one for yourself and a friend.

The Comments

Dennis Jones

I sent you the extra large Christmas card!

Don Jones

Yes indeed… and it only used every ounce of my color cartridges to print out. Let’s see… that’s about a $39.45 cent Christmas card!!!

Dennis Jones

…here’s a Dennis Jones Christmas Card Seasonal Printing Tip for you, Don… toss that image on a flash stick, go down to Kinkos and make yourself an 8.5 X 11 card for around 99 cents… hey, treat yourself nice this holiday season and print yourself out two…

Don Jones

I much prefer the over-priced super sized version. “Spare no expense” for holiday items I always say.

Dennis Jones

…you know that print you are holding in your hands will be half price after Christmas…

Doug Jones

Don… head on over to my portfolio page… pick out an image… print it out… add the appropriate type and have yourself another card! you’re welcome…

Dennis Jones

…this online Christmas card stuff is so easy even a caveman could do it!

Doug Jones

I know at least one caveman that would be highly offended by that comment…

Dennis Jones

…you know that latest caveman commercial where he is in the airport and that quirky music is playing in the background… I liked that song so much I tracked it down on the internet and it is now on my heavy music rotation list…

Doug Jones

it’s amazing what you can do on the internets… …I’ll have to listen more closely next time that ad is on, I can’t recall that tune…

Dennis, Don, Doug

…yep, here we are back in ‘81… sportin’ hair and dreaming about making a million bucks on that newfangled contraption called the internets…

The Comments

Don Jones

I’m speechless. Here you’ve gone and exposed our little siamese twins plus one secret.

Doug Jones

I think you got that date wrong. Anyhoo… did we all get the same shirt for Christmas that year?

Don Jones

and matching underwear…

roballoo

It’s the beardsly twins (er – triplets). Makes me miss my beard. Maybe it’s the angle of the shot and the shorter Christmas tree in the background but you three look awfully tall. Having never met a Bro. Jones in person (just over the Internets), that could be the case: maybe you are all over 7 feet tall. I betcha Sneakerologist could date those there Nike’s for a definitive answer to the photo’s date.

roballoo

Thankfully (I hope) there’s no matching photographic proof of the matching underwear. tmi

Dennis Jones

…Doug, the back of that picture just says Christmas ‘81… I suppose it could be from Christmas 2081 and we mailed it back to ourselves from the future with a little note that tells us to get out of the stock market immediately and I’ve just misplaced the note somewhere… I don’t know…

Doug Jones

darn… I hate when we time travel and then forget to read the notes we write. Those white Nikes were my FAVORITE shoes for many a year… now I wear Crocs…. the end is near…

Jason Bourne

2081…LOL. Hey future Jones bros, could you send me back a flying car if you’re reading this.

Doug Jones

I think we should all go trick or treating this year like this. Where can we get some hair?

Dennis Jones

…Sherman, I jumped into the WAYBACK MACHINE and this image popped up…

Zaz

You guys look like brother Gibbs doing country. Come to think of it they were around in the 80’s as well. Which one of you has that high pitch girl like voice?????

Dennis Jones

…whOa …the WAYBACK MACHINE just took a swerve into the ‘60’s…

Doug Jones

I’m still waiting on my royalties from making that album… SocMo bought an island in the Pacific with his moolah…

Dennis Jones

…aaARgg …I can’t seem to be able to steer the WAYBACK MACHINE back into 2008… I just shot right past it…
