The Boys are Back in Town..


Here is a photo of a sort of reunion of the famous 80's band Velour.
Velour was mostly famous in the eastern Oklahoma town of Tahlequah. Also mostly played at a place called the O-Si-Yo Club
in that same city. Okay, truthfully that is the only place we ever played.
Ted, pictured here with me, was a short term member as was my friend Billy aka The Big Kahuna. Those were the days when a man was a man except for two of the members who we found out later were most likely testeronically
challenged.


Back to the present this is Ted and your very own Uncle Joe singing for the Lord last Sunday night.
We walked into the sanctuary early to set up and honestly it was so hot that we both were fighting for oxygen just to survive. I imagine I would have gone down first clutching my chest and Ted would have passed out trying to catch me. He's such a good friend. I'm sure he would do that for me. Right Ted?
We made it okay, sang some tight harmony, then made a sweet jump off the stage into the crowd who caught Ted but missed me. I guess their timing was off after catching Ted and body surfing him to the water fountain. When I woke up church was over and AJ and the girls were singing campfire songs over my body. They then Kum Bah Ya'd me to the car and took me to McDonalds to get a Happy Meal to cheer me up. All is now well.

The picture above was taken by a special camera in our church that picks out Naysayers and reads their minds. We learned that she was only visiting and would soon be returning to her beloved Idaho to catch the Air Supply Concert and then continue on with her fulltime job of tracking BigFoot. Of course we wish her well.


The floor is now open for questions.

I thought you were going to say "body surfing him to the baptistry".

That was fun Uncle Joe. I needed a good chuckle at this time of the night... I mean, morning.

Badoozie said...

i had a kid bugging me while trying to read that.

now. lets talk about my bigfoot research. your very own AJ sent me a loverly link to a sighting near you. the hairy creature was banging on the house, and scaring some ladies kids. screaming and such.

i was trying to keep dyl occupied today during homework, and cheer him up, so i started talking about bigfoot, making stuff up. I told him there was an actual society that believed in bigfoot, and come to find out there is!!! we had a good laugh over it. in fact, big foot was here just yesterday, knocked over my trash. durn it.

then dylan did all his homework sentences about bigfoot, while we howled in laughter, wondering if he will get in trouble at school tomorrow. i'm a bad mom.

by the way, good post, love it!! love the body surfing especially, way to go, that took a "leap of faith" indeed.

Aunt Jo said...

The BigFoot sighting was in Honobia, Oklahoma pronounced "hoe nubby". I have never heard of this town.

So if the questions are open: what did you sing? Did you like that girl on the front row makin eyes at you? Is it wrong to make eyes at a cute guitar player in church? ;o)

I need a special camera like that at work...hey it would be pretty cool anywhere. What's that chicks name??

Aunt Jo said...

I know some people in Hontubby Oklahoma.....I wonder if they have seen bigfoot??

uncle joe said...

You know Anne, the baptistry was just behind us and we probably should have dived into it as we waved goodbye to the congregation.
Susie, Bigfoot was just here spitting skoal juice onto my driveway. Bigfoot must have a secret portal from Idaho to Oklahoma.

Badoozie said...

by the way, this summer, theres a planned "Bigfoot expedition" near your area, maybe that naysayer would come back and go with you?

uncle joe said...

Susie, that's a good idea. Maybe the Naysayer could bring Dick Cheney and his friends and we could have a homebrew party before the expedition..

Seeker said...

Catch me, I'm fainting.... playing those instuments in a BABTIST church??!!
tee hee

Jamie Dawn said...

Body surfing in the Lord's house?
Repent!

Gorging at Mickey D's? Gluttony!
Repent!

Do you plan on curbing your sinning any time soon?

PrayerfulMom said...

It was me i was walking around......sorry
bigfoot aka big kahuna

EmmaSometimes said...

mosh pit and hanging 10? I never saw such heathen goings-on at the Keith Green concert years ago. although he did bang his head a lot when he played piano

uncle joe said...

You know Emmawhenevershewantstobe,if you really got to see Keith Green in concert you are now my hero.

If you're just teasing me, because you know I absolutely think Keith Green was a modern day prophet, then you're still my hero.

Kahuna, we were walking AROUND the juice. ha ha. just kidding.
actually carly slipped down and broke her crown...

Badoozie said...

i think jamie dawn has hit upon something here, i'm deeply concerned for you

uncle joe said...

No Jamie Dawn, no curbing here.
We save stuff like that for the Gobhole Girl.

Gosh GiGi, if you're gonna suck up to JamieDawn why don't you do it over at her place?

That's where I do it.

Prayerfuldad said...

Ook let's see if this actually might have worked so BIG can use his own name lol

PrayerfulMom said...

YIPPIE it worked ! Hooooooooray

uncle joe said...

Hip hip who's Roy!

Seeker, yes, what's this world comin to?

Ted said...

I see the special camera also makes Ted look fatter.

uncle joe said...

No Ted, that would be your gut that's making you look fatter.

That's why I was hold my guitar in my lap so it would cover up my gut!
We've worked very hard for our extra lbs. and I think we look very cool. Next stop tattoo'd bellies with famous warships or submarines.! what do you think?

Seeker said...

OH no! Not TATOOS, in a BABTIST church?!

Ted said...

I always wanted a tattoo of a dog chasing a rabbit into my navel.

Aunt Jo said...

Maybe JamieDawn can give you the number of the artist that created the WONDERFUL monkey bootie tattoo over at her place! ;o)

Jamie Dawn said...

I heard a preacher say this once:

Go to hell in the name of Jesus!

No kidding. Curb or face the fire.

uncle joe said...

Gosh, Okay I will curb.
Does God accept parallel parking?

EmmaSometimes said...

UJ,
Yes, I did see Keith Green in Ashland, OR about 1980 (I was 8). I don't think I will ever forget his humility, his passion for God, worship just pouring out of that piano that bounced around the stage. The little stadium was absolutely packed but it felt so personal even from my 8 year old vantage. It was FABULOUS. He still is my top numero uno worship album. The song, "Letter to my Parents" makes me cry every time.
