GoatForaFace Guy Revisited

May 11, 2009

GoatforaFaceGuy

This Goat-For-A-Face Guy was originally done for a 2006 post.It’s interesting to read some of those old blogs. I was apparently on the cutting edge of technology back then by running 140 pound watercolor paper through my copy machine to create line work on it or something to that effect…

…anyway, I was wanting to experiment with some different Photoshop brushes the other day, ran across this old guy in a folder, pulled him out, and slapped a fresh coat of paint on him.

FLITTER UPDATE: Downed b&G and being productive… b&G= bisquits and gravy

Dennis Jones

FLITTER UPDATE: …have been unable to download B&G for some time now and not happy about it…

Dennis Jones

…who needs Twitter when you’ve got Flitter…

Doug Jones

OHFLITTER UPDATE:  Hey Den… this gives me a great idea! Network TV is having Sweeps this month and showing the season finales of their shows. BrotherJones should have a big blowout season finale in May, and then go into reruns of past hits for the summer. What a concept!

Dennis Jones

…the dennis season finale was last weeks post… I’m already in reruns…

Doug Jones

YES… I was totally blown away by your season finale in which you revealed that the mysterious Jacob on Lost is actually Mr. Rogers.

Don Jones

lol

Dennis Jones

…I thought riding furiously through the jungle on my lawn mower to a secret submarine that I jumped into in order to escape Indiana might have been a little over the top, but maybe not…

Doug Jones

Escaping Indiana… NOW you’re talkin’! Go down to your basement and see if there is a big wheel you can turn… and don’t forget to put on your winter coat…

Dennis Jones

…my basement kinda creeps me out ever since I saw Jacks dad down there… I had two broken legs and a splinter in my finger at the time and he wouldn’t even help me turn the wheel…

Don Jones

Are you still churning out the corn shine with your Steam Punk Still?

Doug Jones

you just can’t count on dead people anymore…

Doug Jones

OHFLITTER… Don knocked off my one liner with his comment…

Dennis Jones

FLITTERUPDATE: …Dougster, your new page is not working correctly, you can’t comment on it… you might want to delete it and try it again…

Doug Jones

oops… I forgot to put a title on it… now it’s working. Y’all come on over and chat a while…

Dennis Jones

FLITTER: k

Don Jones

lol

Dennis Jones

FLITTER: bff …we gotta type really short stuff like this if were going to compete with Twitter…

Jeff

Flitter, Twitter, Jitter,,,what happened to the days when you just go out in the front yard and yell down the street?? By the way, digging up my old prom picture, not cool.

Dennis Jones

…Jeff, if the only way I can get you to write a comment here is to post your old prom pictures like the one on this page, well, I guess thats just what’s gotta be done…

Dennis Jones

…by the way Jeff, if I remember those stories you told me correctly about your old goaltender days, this is probably a pretty accurate picture of what opposing players saw when they saw you standing between the pipes…

Jeff

At least you didn’t post the picture of my date…..

Olympic Hockey Sunday

March 1, 2010

HockeySunday1HockeySunday2HockeySunday3

…ok, so the youth minister at my church says this Sunday the youth Sunday School lesson is on Ephesians 6 so Dennis why don’t you wear all your goaltender stuff and we’ll let the kids shoot at you and we’ll compare the goaltender gear to the armor of God and have a really good object lesson with it so I say ok and for the grand finale he will throw a hockey puck at me but it will bounce off harmlessly because I’m wearing my “armor” so we get the “wear the armor of God” point into the lesson and he takes the puck while standing about 7 feet away and slings it at me with a baseball windup and I’m thinking he’s going to throw at my chest or legs where I obviously have the most padding but he throws at my head instead and in all my years of playing hockey I have never taken a harder blow to the head than that as evidenced by the fact that it took a chunk out of the cage and crushed the padded goaltender helmet into my nose and cut it so that as I was talking to the kids about how crazy a person would have to be to do something like that without the “helmet of salvation” on blood was trickling down my nose and I’m not really sure if they got the point we were trying to make but I’m pretty sure they will never forget Olympic Hockey Sunday…

The Comments

The “Ripleys” Guy

No doubt, your reward will be in heaven for that sacrifice! Is there any way to get a re-enactment for YouTube?

Doug Jones

That settles it… I’m sticking with curling…

Jeff

Bad move Doug, those rocks weigh in at like 30 something pounds. I’m speechless Dennis, I had to explain to Peggy why I wet my pants!!!

Doug Jones

I know for a fact that no youth minister is able to pick up a 30 pound stone… so I’m safe…

Don Jones

Object lessons are always better when blood is involved….

Dennis Jones

…there goes Mr. Doug trying to stir up trouble for me on my page again… I get into plenty all by myself, I don’t need any help thank you very much…

Nik

Thats by far the coolest hockey helmet in the world,now you need a football helmet like that

Dennis Jones

…Don, your comment reminded me of the time I slammed my arm through a plate glass window and almost cut it in off and as they were sewing me back together at the doctors office Doug turned green and started sliding down the wall and someone had to catch him… blood is always an attention grabber…

Jeff

Famous last words, “I don’t need a Helmet, We’re just doing some light warm up.” 8 stitches later, my hats dont fit to good anymore.

Dennis Jones

…Jeff, I would like for you to start a blog and just tell your old goaltender stories on it… you had some doozies I recall…

Jeff

You have the winner…I have NEVER had an open wound in church. I am sorry, I just chuckle like an idiot every time I think about it.

Jeff

“I’m just Reffin a kids game, what do I need a cup for?”

Don Jones

I found myself looking at these pictures and softly humming “Power in the Blood.”
