2006 Christmas Report

…Don, Doug and Dennis…

Xmas-2006-2

…tempers flair…

I must apologize for this very late filing of the Official 2006 Jones Family Christmas Report. I accidentally left my camera behind in Kansas City during the holidays and have only recently gotten it back.

The 2006 Jones Family Christmas started out innocently enough. With around thirty participants at the proceedings this year, we began the festivities by enjoying a fine meal together. Things quickly deteriorated into a vicious “who can make the best costume out of Christmas wrapping paper” competition.

Doug somehow weaseled out of participating in this with us. Don and I were not happy about this (as shown in the first picture). Tempers flared when Don’s crummy pirate costume won first place over my really cool super hero costume. Unfortunately, fisticuffs ensued… as usual.

All in all… just another typical Jones Family Christmas.

Hello Dennis, Your comic book background never seems to be too far away? Hey, could you email me the name of one or more publishers for your Bible books? Thanks, Bernard

Dennis Jones

RobalLOO… don’t be dissin’ my wrapping skills… I wrap under the name J-den-Z… don’t be hatin’ on us wrappers…

Don Jones

We were so close there in picture No. 1 to torturing Douglas. All that was missing was a plastic bag… and a telephone cord… and a switch blade. At least he does look terrified.

Doug Jones

you would be terrified too if YOU had a cardboard wrapping paper tube at YOUR throat! I am still having nightmares….

Hey J-den-Z ~ I saw your Illustrated Bible in a drug store the other day – part of a Hallmark inspirational publishing display. Way cool to see it in retail-land and to go “I know that guy” – or at least, I comment on his blog.

Doug Jones

That reminds me, Roballoo… your blog commenting fees are due. Send ‘em in now for another fun year of posting comments.
