D. Ray White's boy Jesco

Postby bearridge » Sat Nov 08, 2003 10:47 am

Friend Sparkey,

Its purty early 'n I been at work fer hours. Aint done no work yet, but I aim ta do some jest az soon az I tell ya bout Jesco White.

Thats D. Ray's boy. D. Ray wuz the last of the mountain dancers up in Boone County, West Va. Cept fer Jesco who either dances ta "Wildwood Flower" wid hiz pal "Guitar Pickin' Waddie". Mostly he moutain dances ta Lynerd Skynerd.

The public tv fellas went ta film hiz sister Mamie who iz the meanest 'n the baddest of the bunch. However, Mamie wuz drunk most of the time they wuz there....'n there wuz Jesco...over hiz gas sniffin'. A few years before the deputy (Boyd George?) took him off ta the West Virginy reformatory fer boys where they made him better'n when he went in. [It took a few times az the first one didnt take.]

Jesco iz married to Norma Jean 'n haz a dog. Some mean folks sez its hard ta tell which iz which, but like hiz momma (the Miracle Woman) sez "I dont know why he loves that woman, but he does".

Jesco wuz a mean fella (even after he got hizself off the gas) 'n sometimes would jest beat a fella purty bad fer the thrill of it. But then he found Elvis. Hiz wife says when he's Elvis, he's calm 'n wonderful. [He calls her "Priscilla".] He has a whole room in hiz trailer fer Elvis towels, lamps, figures, rugs, records 'n even a tape recorder where he sings wid Elvis 'n makes new duet records.

D. Ray wuz kilt by Steve 'n Billy Hastings who wuz likely on LSD when they shot him in the back. [Dont worry, knowin' that aint gwine ta ruin it fer ya.] D. Ray knowd 52 more steps than any other mountian dancer, accordin' ta the Miracle Woman. They iz a clip of D. Ray dancin' so ya kin see fer yerownself.

Dorsey, Jesco's brother wid a bad eye, shows where the shotgun pellets hit the trailer door when the shootin' started. Some even hit the Christmas sign by the door. Some put Dorsey's eye out. Dorsey is gone now, but not forgot. After the video he wuz in a bar 'n got shot wid hiz own pistol. Some folks sez it wuz suicide, but most folks think it wuz an accident. [That aint in the video cuz Dorsey wuz alive then.]

Well, they iz some hard times in this one. Jesco (not in hiz "Elvis phase") tells Norma Jean that if she dont quit makin' them sloppy, slimy eggs, he's gwine ta git real mad 'n maybe hurt her....real bad. Another time he tole her she better turn the car round 'n go back ta git hiz sunglasses. She dont want to go back cuz the folks had got plum rowdy 'n she wanted ta go home. He tole her she wuz gwine home alrite....in a box if she didnt turn that car round 'n go back ta git hiz sunglasses. He sez "them's mine 'n mine only 'n I dont want no other wierdo a wearin' 'em."

So ya see, it coulda been wrote by Billy Shakespear.....but it warnt.

P.S. Jesco sez that gas sniffin' phaze had him thinkin' he could "hold up hiz hand 'n stop a train" which he finally realized wuz "thinkin' that could git me killed". So ya see it haz some good lessons in it.

Friends Swampy & Kayak Jack,

Jesco warnt on Dick Clark, but he made it ta Roseanne's show. Tom Arnold seen a copy of the video 'n sent Jesco plane ridin' money, but him 'n Roseanne didnt hit it off, so he wuz mostly out on the porch wid Tom 'n the little boy. They made anuther video on hiz trip ta Los Angels, but it aint too hot.

Course Sparkey's respository copy oughta git ta Florida soon az the postal workin' folk git back to work.

Postal worker? Hmmmm....... :roll:
