Holiday Hilarity

I hate that there is always December Holiday stuff out before Thanksgiving, but....
Here is something I had to share. There are some curs words in this so, you may want to view it before sharing with others. This is Jeff Dunham a comedian and ventriloquist we just love. I hope you enjoy!

In case you want to sing along...

Dashing through the sand with a bomb strapped to my back, I have a nasty plan for Christmas in Iraq. I got through check point A, but not through check point B.
That's when I got shot in the a** by the US Military... Oh Jingle Bombs Jingle Bombs mine blew up you see. Where are all the virgins that Bin Laden promised me? Oh Jingle Bombs, Jingle Bombs US Soldiers shot me dead. The only thing I have left is the towel upon my head. I use to be a man but every time I cough, thanks to Uncle Sam my nuts keep falling off. My bombing days are done. I need to find some work. Perhaps it would be much safer as a convenience store night clerk. OH, Jingle bombs, jingle bombs, I think I got screwed. Don't laugh at me because I'm dead or I kill you....I kill you.

Childhood memories. Remembered in a time of loss.

Growing up I was exposed to a lot of great musicians and a lot of great people when I would visit with my Uncle Denny. Jimmy Black was one of those. He is someone in my childhood that I hadn't thought about in years. That is until I heard how sick he was. Jimmy crossed over last night at 11pm is what I am told. Being that he was in a German Hospital, I don't know if that was German time or ours.

My Uncle and a very good friend of his (Tom Leavey) were working on a benefit to help pay for the ton of hospital bills Jimmy had racked up with all his medical bills. This benefit has now turned into a memorial. Here is what Tom had sent to my mom;

Hi Everybody,
Jimmy Carl Black a dear friend since 1969 and fellow bandmate
(GERONIMO BLACK) is dealing with cancer of the lungs,kidneys, brain and
leukemia. To help his family with mounting medical expenses we are throwing a
benefit concert on Sunday December 7th. 2008 from noon til dark at Thousand
Trails Campgrounds in Acton, Ca. The location was found by Candy Zappa and Nolan
Porter who used it for a benefit last Sunday and when myself and Peter Lovio, a
member of Frank Zappa's 1st. band (The Blackouts) saw the natural beauty of
this venue we decided this would be the perfect place for Jimmy's benefit
concert. There will be many musical guests connected to The Mothers Of Invention
with several original band members. Also, Jimmy's sons Geronimo & Darryl
will be driving in from Jimmy's home town of El Paso to perform as the New
Geronimo Black. We will keep you updated with guests that will be appearing, but
we guarantee there will be many,many surprises and lots of great music. If you
had a good time during the 60s we're
gonna bring it back to you by celebrating Jimmy Carl Black's 50 years in
show business. Hope to see you all there.
Thanks, Tom Leavey

I have tried to post a picture that I am not sure will turn out. It is of the dads with their sons. Jimmy Black with Geronimo on the left, My Uncle Denny Walley and Jared in the middle and Tom Leavey with Darin on the right. Us kids were probably about two at that time.

I am going to do everything I can to go to that gig! It would be nice to see and reconnect with lost friends (and family) before we loose another one.
