…Nick points to the famous Notre Dame golden dome…

…Pete and Nick walking to the stadium in a crowd…

Over the Thanksgiving break our oldest son Nick, (being a huge Notre Dame football fan) wanted to make a pilgrimage to South Bend to look at the school… which we did. After wandering around the campus for a while, my youngest son asked, ”…did we drive all the way up here just to take pictures?”

Yes Pete, yes we did… and here they are.

The Comments

Don Jones

This is good. Pete is hanging back with the other guitarist George while Nick is attempting to pickpocket John.

Doug Jones

I think Ringo is goosing Nick

Dennis Jones

…is that a Notre Dame hooded sweatshirt I see Nick wearing? …looks like LSU Tiger Bait to me…

Doug Jones

look… it’s 4  beatles… and two maggots! (the above comment is of a purely humorous nature and not intended to impune the character of said persons) I am Doug Jones and I semi-approve this message.

Dennis Jones

Doug, this requires a reasonable amount of entomology knowledge to catch the humor in the comment…

…for that reason I believe your comment is way over the heads of most of our viewers…

…well… at least over Dons head…

Nick Jones Everybody

I am uncomfortable with the proximity of Ringo’s hand… I always knew he was the creepy Beatle…

Dennis Jones

…since Don seems to be gone today, lets talk about him behind his back… did you know he fell on the ice in the church parking lot yesterday?… seriously…

Dennis Jones

…what Don exclaimed as he fell out of sight… was NOT Merry Christmas and to all a good night…

Doug Jones

can you say “lawsuit?” Don is probably meeting with Dewey, Cheatem and Howe right now to discuss litigation…

Dennis Jones

…no …I believe Don is probably meeting with his pastor right now trying to explain his comments as he hit the ground…

Don Jones

I’ve decided to “move my letter” and forego the humiliation of confessing my verbal tirade to the congregation.

Doug Jones

I’ve been thinking of moving my BrotherJones letter to another website… Preferably one with a higher quality of snacks and a better retirement plan

I have sock creatures living in several different states now and these two reside in Oklahoma at my oldest son Nick’s house. He got a new lens for his camera and took these photos with it. I guess I need to buy frames and hang them on the wall with our other family photos.

Love your use of buttons for the eyes. Interesting to find another illustrator who plays with socks on his spare time. 😉 I teach a puppet seminar for children’s ministry workers and I have students make simple sock puppets. I encourage them to use buttons for eyes instead of “wiggle eyes”.  After watching the full-length sock puppet movie, “The Lady from Sockholm”, I was impressed with how they chose button eyes to fit each puppet’s personality/character. Button eyes have so much more character to them.

Dennis Jones

…those wiggle eyes make your sock guys look like something Grandma made in her crochet class… buttons give your characters a good, creepy weird look…

Don Jones

poignant… love the shallow depth of field…

Jeff

Puppet #2 looks like he may need a good Orthodontist. Hes got more teeth and gums than an Osmond reunion concert.

Dennis Jones

…actually, I did model Puppet # 2 from Donny… Osmond, not Jones…

Doug Jones

If any of those guys want to live in Tennessee, we have a spot for ‘em…

Jeff

I’m waiting to bid on the Spartaweaselcus tribute sock puppet.

Roballoo!

Great photos. The guy on two has a certain Tim Burtonesque feel to him the way he’s designed and photogged.

When Karen and I were first married, we bought a house deep in the Missouri Ozark woods and I started my freelance career from there. Most freelance artists move closer to big cities where work is flowing. Not me! Using my superior thinkin’ skills, I decided to launch my freelance career from the very middle of Nowhere U.S.A.

Way back then nobody… NOBODY worked at home. If you worked at home you obviously didn’t have a job. These days it’s commonplace to work at home, and work for yourself to boot.

As they say, the acorn doesn’t fall far from the oak tree. My oldest son Nick just launched Prolifik Films, and is now working at home as a freelancer. One of the side projects that he and I are working on is a motion graphic comic book. I had no idea there was any such thing as a motion graphic comic book two months ago and now I’m in the middle of developing one withProlifik Films.

Their new web site is up, so if you’re curious about his work, run on over and take a look. Prolifik Films

Nik

That is cool,a motion comic book,I can’t wait to see that. So much to learn.

Don Jones

i am an official Prolifik Films Fan on FaceBook. Say that real fast, three times…

Dennis Jones

…using my superior thinkin’ skills, I just shoveled the snow off my driveway… wearing clogs… and no socks…

Jeff

I am the official medical director at BRO-JO what color are your toes Dennis? How many fingers am I holding up?

Dennis Jones

…how many fingers… hard to tell… of course, it would probably help if I took off my Avatar 3-d glasses…

Dennis Jones

…’cause it looks like you’re holding up four hands and about fifteen and a half fingers…

Jeff

You got it.. I guess your o.k.

Don Jones

Avatar? I just watched the first Lord of the Rings flick last night…

Dennis Jones

…Lord Of The Rings? …if you started that movie last night I’m guessing you’re probably still watching and almost to the end of it…

Doug Jones

I need to watch LOTR again. LOTR is what all of us cool peeps call it. I watched original Get Smart episodes from season 1 last night. They are even better that I remember! Wonder who put that in the Dube bridge gift mix?

Don Jones

Today is BIRTHDAY EVE for Dougie boy… the anticipation is killing me… sort of.

Dennis Jones

…LOTR was on TV last night and I spontaneously LOL… fwi…

Dennis Jones

…I meant fyi …I’m not sure what fwi means…

Dennis Jones

…oh, yes I do… Fort Wayne International Airport… I knew that sounded familiar…

Don Jones

That’s FYB funny. Fill Your Britches.

Dennis Jones

…TMI, Don, TMI…

Nik

Fort Wyane International Airport! LOL! Greatness!

roballoo!

Can’t wait to see this comic book thingy you’ve got cooked up your sleeve!
