The Thanksgiving 2006 Report

…Nick points to the famous Notre Dame golden dome…

AbbeyRoadBoys

…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

Mr. Moogles

November 5, 2007

MrMoogles

I hope everyone enjoyed that extra hour of sleep this weekend because you will need a rested brain for CONTEST WEEK AT BROTHER JONES!!!

#1 Has anyone ever seen Mr. Moogles before?

#2 What does this mystery picture mean?

The correct answer could win you a FABULOUS prize!

The Comments

Don Jones

#1 – No

#2 – “My deodorant is really strong.”

Nick Jones Everybody

All I can say is I hope Mr. Moogles is ready to travel, cause he might end up in my suitcase when I come home at Thanksgiving.

Jason Bourne

Moogles reminds me of Gizmo… Don’t feed him after midnight.

Roballoo

#1] unfortunately, no. Although I have seen similar menagerie of creatures from you before.

2] This mystery picture means that bro. Dennis has been mightily experimenting with his sock creatures of late. The animatronic armatures need only a computerized brain, and the ability to produce more of itself, and they will take over the world! (cue mad scientist laughter here)

If I win this contest, do I win one of your funtabulous creations?

Dennis Jones

…Mr. Moogles might very well end up in a suitcase at Thanksgiving, but since he’s sporting quasi-LSU colors, I’m not so sure it will be yours, Nick…

Dennis Jones

…RobalLOO, that was a very fine guess… it was almost entirely correct except for the part about the mad scientist laughter… that was completely wrong… other than that, an excellent response… except, of course, for the other parts of your answer that were completely wrong, too…

Doug Jones

I like turtles

Don Jones

Mr. Moogles displaying his LSU Cajun induced “Mo-Jo”…

Doug Jones

hey… is it odd that Manning put his helmet back on after the game? Is this usual for him? I just found it a bit odd….

Don Jones

I think he is self conscience about his helmet hair.

Dennis Jones

…I know I would be…

Jason Bourne

I’m sure the Colts will stop the Patriots on the next meeting.

Doug Jones

I see NO new contest HERE either… what gives? I wanna new contest!

Dennis Jones

..hey, man… no one has won this one yet…

Doug Jones

I may already be a weinner!

Dennis Jones

…I’ll second that!

Don Jones

#1 I saw Mr. Moogles last night up at the 7-11 buying RedBull and M&Ms.

#2 The picture simply means Dennis has completely lost his mind and is mixing business with pleasure.

Do I win?

Big Job

November 15, 2007

SpotDog

I’ve been working night and day on a really big job that is due December 3. Eighty-six pages of art and text. I’ve not had much time to participate on Brother Jones, but I suppose I can at least change the picture here on my page.

The Comments

Dan Lietha

Dennis, just glad you’re still alive! Here’s a fun suggestion for those crunch-time deadlines. Tom Richmond who is a caricature artist/illustrator for Mad magazine has a blog and when he is on a heavy deadline, he posts “The dreaded Deadline Demon”: Maybe you could make your own deadline type image for times like these.

Jason Bourne

Alright,we’re back! Wahooo… Purple spots look cool. Dallywags and wallydogs, love’em.

Dennis Jones

…good idea, Dan… the picture above is now officially the “Dreaded Deadline Demon Dog”…

Jeff

He is not as horrific as I would have thought..Maybe he has really big teeth…

Don Jones

It appears the Demon Deadline Dog is wagging its way right on through Thanksgiving….

NC NC2

Whoosh! I just got the assignment I’ve been working on finished up. Over ninety pages in about a month. I’ve been working night and day, so I’m looking forward to vegging out on the couch this weekend and watching a whole lotta football…

The Comments

Roballoo

Congrats. Now you can go out and celebrate Thanksgiving!

Don Jones

Welcome back to the “Web Land of Static Sites.” Glad to see the Deadline Dog put down. Went to the In-laws last night. Satellite. NFL Network. Need I say more?

Dennis Jones

…that turned into a pretty interesting football match… I always hate it when they start showing games on Thursdays late in the season… and Saturdays…I can never remember they are on… NFL tackle football games are supposed to be on Sundays… and Mondays…

Jason Bourne

Very nice.Dallas won, yeeee. I felt sorry for Brent Favre. The back up QB did a great job!

WoodPile

The seasons are changing here in Indiana, it’s getting kinda nippy at night, and that means one thing… time for me to cut fire wood. I am trying something new this season… the legendary wood PILE. I have found this to be much easier than stacking wood into orderly rows… not that I’m looking for the easy way out or anything…

The Comments

Don Jones

That’s one good lookin’ wood pile. Bet you burned off a few 3 Musketeers putting that together.

Jason Bourne

Yep..Fall is here again. Soon it will be Thanksgiving and Christmas in no time…

Doug Jones

This wood pile is not high enough… I am highly offended…

WeaselFootball

It’s Thanksgiving week and that means a whole lot of food, fun and football… so to get things kicked off right, here’s a YouTube video tribute to the legendary Sheboygan Wild Weasels.

You can see the video here.

The Comments

Don Jones

The painting… the music…. brilliant! I am pumped for Thanksgiving and I don’t know why.

Dennis Jones

…you don’t know why?? …here’s two words for you… WEASELS FOOTBALL!

Doug Jones

awesomeness dittos… a little tech question: do you do the darks with a brush on multiply? you don’t use the burn and dodge tools do you?

Dennis Jones

…I don’t do the multiply because it seems to add too much saturation… no burn, no dodge… I paint everything with the brush in normal mode…

Doug Jones

hmmm… we need a little Christmas time Cintiq workshop

Dennis Jones

…hey, my offer still stands… you get a Cintiq and I’ll drive down to Nashville and show you everything I know about it…. shouldn’t take more that 6 or 7 minutes…

Bernard

Fantastic! You even had the music stop on time too! Are you back to work this week ( new pic/video ) or do we have to have Thanksgiving leftovers here at Bros. Jones?

Dennis Jones

…ha! …ok, Bernard… something new…

Bernard

C’Mon Man ( Keyshawn )…you know if you give us an inch we will want a yard! Now, you’ve got us all the way up to painting videos…Jones seminars cannot be too far off.
