Brothers Campfire Pulls Out All The Stops

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

Blogging has given me the distinct opportunity to meet creative and intelligent beings with decisively more brainpower than myself. For instance, I met Bharath from and I am outclassed. This man scored 155 plus comments by asking a simple question.

I had my thoughts on the matter.You should go over there and give your answer as well.

We hit it off from there. I commented that he looked like Clark Kent also known as Superman and this is what he had to say.

Now, when I was a young man of 11 or so I read Jonah Hex Issue #39 and I must say I was flattered. I remember this little gem from 26 years ago. Apparently he has been remade several times since this 1980 issue.

I looked the feller up on Wikipedia and he had a harder life than Ashton in my story to be sure!

Well, Bharath, check this out. You may be right.

Here is me.

And here is Jonah Hex.

Wait, I may have got that confused. I should have labeled my photos better.

One thing I must remind folks is that you treat every gun as if it is loaded, even if it is a toy.

Flattered I was, and I decided to pull out the stops with my new inspiration. I work hard, inspired by my new found friend.

After all these attempts to pull out all of the stops, I was unsuccessful and after looking for a tutorial online, I found that pulling out the stops had something to do with pipe organs. As far as I know, it is as simple as manipulating the knobs on the sides of the key board. I suppose I should have Googled it first.

Well, anyway…this is my shoutout to my new found friend, Bharath at

    &#!$@! You are Jonah Hex! Look at that! And yeah, thanks man, I definitely don’t deserve this. What’re you doing with that stop sign by the way? πŸ˜‚

      Me? I am pulling out the stops! It is an American play on words.

    Looks pretty cool. I will follow him a while and see. Jonah Hexβ€½ I remember when he came out. Carter and I used to wait every month to see what was going to happen next. I don’t recall him having any super powers other than superior fighting and marksman skills.

      That’s what I read on the Wiki as well. I Don’t know anything about it other than the episode I read.

            Potassium nitrate- though I’d assume it to be white, since most Group 1 compounds tend to be white.
            C S stands for??? I’m not sure. :)))

          2. Benjamin says:

            I don’t know how to express things like that as formulas. I just write stories and work.

          3. Benjamin says:

            No. Not at all. I do like chemistry and science experiments though.

          4. Benjamin says:

            Also Got spammed.

            I wonder if the software has something against Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches.

            All I know is to spend a little less than I make when I can!

    I love that it took a min for me to figure out the stop sign pics! I wish I could post my old 1970s pic of a friend doing ‘flag pose’ on a stop sign!!

    Most excellent post!! (I have no idea why I’ve started commenting like Bill & Ted, I have not watched the new movie)

    1. Benjamin says:

      If you find it, it would be neat to see!

      Leenda, I. Glad you drop by! You are a fine addition to the Campfire!

    I have never heard of Jonah Hex, I will check him out.

    Ha ha I hope you succeed in pulling out the stops. I wish you well.

    1. Benjamin says:

      I read one comic when I was young and then the Wiki.

      Berina Berry, may you pull out all the stops as well!

    My son loves the Jonah Hex movie…this is the summary of the movie: “Having cheated death, gunslinger and bounty hunter Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) has one foot in the natural world and one in the supernatural. His unusual nature gives him the ability to track down anyone or anything, so the Army makes him an irresistible offer: It will erase the warrants on his head if he will find Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). Turnbull, his oldest enemy, is preparing to unleash hell on Earth and will stop at nothing to kill him.”
    I think he owns a couple of the graphic novels…
    love the pulling out the stops photos πŸ™‚

    1. Benjamin says:

      So, in the original, I don’t think he had these superpowers, but I think he cheated death a time or two. The movie is something I have not seen as I do not own a Television or watch media.

      It looks like my friend paid me a compliment!

      Ha ha! I am glad you liked the pulling of the stops!🀠πŸ”₯

      1. HCMorris77(holly) says:

        I haven’t read any of the books myself…the movie is kinda done up like an old western.
        Love play on words!
        Hope you have a great day! 😊
