A Brand New Set Of Peepers

Lasek

…my cool new shades…

I haven’t been participating around here much lately. Last week I was in California and this week I had Lasik eye surgery done. I found it somewhat difficult to type up comments with both eyes taped shut, so I haven’t been doing a lot of that.

My youngest son, Pete, did make it into the Final Four Battle Of The Bands thing so I am headed down to watch him this weekend. Needless to say I am backed up with work right now, deadlines are looming large and I don’t have a lot of time to play on Brother Jones this week, but I’m trying to get something together for next week that I think will be really fun.

The Comments

Bucky Jones

Dennis, I hope the Lasek eye surgery went well and was a success. Good luck with the deadlines and I look forward to what you’ll have to share next week. Take care.

Doug Jones

What a photo, Denny… say didn’t I see you in the Matrix?

Don Jones

This must be the Brother Jones Vision Tweekin’ Week. Keeg and I stopped in for what turned out to be about a 2 hour eye exam yesterday. Keeg was hanging in there at 20/20 whereas I have managed to lose a little distance in my right eye and I now officially am in need of some reading glasses. The good doctor had a new digital eye camera that he TRIED OUT on me and almost blinded me. He printed a picture out (which I have already lost) of my 14 year-old RK cuts in my eyes. He informed me that he recently had Lasik too … the new and improved vision enhancing procedure. Once again, I am glad to know I was once on the “cutting edge” of improved vision procedures but now I am sportin’ just old, retro style cut-up pupils. Dennis, stop by and pick me up on your way to Oklahoma. Between our two sets of eyes we should be able to navigate our way westward on I-44.

Nick Jones Everybody

you look so hardcore in that picture. You’re gonna look like a heavy metal bouncer at the show this weekend….

Don Jones

Do you now have a “Mother” tattoo and a wallet chained to your pants?

Dennis Jones

…I’m gonna wear my new sunglasses and my tightest black t-shirt… I took the chain off my bike and hooked it to my billfold and just finished inking up both arms with a full sleeve of tattoos with my blue and red sharpies… I’m ready for the show!

Don Jones

Don’t forget your Monday Night Football boxers and Cousin Eddie hat and you’ll be set.

Doug Jones

so what was the Lasik for? Do you still have x-ray vision?… that comes in so handy…

Howie

Hey you look like me…………Deal….or no Deal.

Ape

…a brand spankin’ new monkey to look at…

For the last year I have thrown things randomly into my Brother Jones Portfolio Section. I had color art in one place and sketches to that same art somewhere else. Last night while I was waiting for Lost to come on TV I went in and consolidated a lot of this mess. You might just find a couple of new things in there if you look hard enough.

The Comments

Don Jones

Good looking minkey I take it you are beyond a seeing eye dog and white cane…

Dennis Jones

…since my Lasik eye surgery I can’t see well enough to do my tight little cartoon drawings… this is all I can do now…

Don Jones

Well known artists always go through certain “periods” during their career: (i.e. blue period) Den, you have entered your Lasik period… characterized by everything being really big, splattered, loose…

angeline

digitally painted?

Roballoo

Your lasik adventure reminds me of Monet…I went to an exhbit of his water lilie paintings a few years back and found out that as he got older his paintings lost more of their detail and became looser, more abstract. One day he had surgery on his eyes and lo and behold the detail in his art came back. Nice painting of the simian. I liked the splotches on the right side. a nice little touch.

Don Jones

Dennis where R u? This monkey is getting older by the monet.

Doug Jones

Denny is doing his famous “post and run” thing

Don Jones

Better than him doing his “postal” thing. Does he own any firearms?

Dennis Jones

…yes Doug, I am like the traveling evangelist that has three fiery sermons and a fast car… speaking of which, I hafta run again now, but I will come back and play tomorrow… probably…

Doug Jones

don’t forget to collect that big LOVE offering before you skip town, Rev…
