Joe's painted on mustache and goatee...
We went to dinner and the waitress asked him
"how long have you been growing that?".
In his fake French accent he confidently answered,
"I have been growing zis since birth".
Rachel started a group at Facebook, and one of the discussions there is our favorite Joey memories. Here's what JoAnne (one of Joey' sister) shared. This was posted in Facebook earlier (not today):
Prolly (that's "probably" in JJ speak) four or five years ago, I ended up visiting Maui with my kids the same week JJ was there. JJ had a way of turning the mundane into excitement and adventure. We had "big plans" to go get pizza (me, Nana, JJ and my kids Chase and Clare) over at the Taco Bell/Pizza Hut on Kihei Rd. Right before we left Joey for some reason decided to use my brown eyeliner to draw a very lame, skinny mustache on his hairless upper lip. The kids and I loved it... "Unkie JJ is so funny!"... but then he took it to the next level by declaring he would wear the 'stache' to dinner. And he sure did... he even adopted this lame French accent that he used the entire time we were at Taco Bell/ Pizza Hut. The waitress tried to keep a straight face as he ordered our selections. Finally, near the end of the dinner the waitress asked Joey if he'd been growing that mustache for long. Joey replied in his lame, thick French accent "I've beeeen working on it seeeeence birth"... We all laughed hysterically... Good times with a friend and brother so spontaneous and silly! I (will) miss that so much.
