The screen was all static, crackle, crack, and frozen.  Buzzing blips, nudges.  The air waves stuck somewhere in cyber space.  A blank page.  Frozen in time.  Frightful as the night that Flying Monkeys was deleted. 
I remember Flying Monkeys.  Http://
Wake up!  Liberty called.  It is almost Christmas……………………………………..
" Space to base.  Space to base.  Are you reading me?"
"Space to base, do you copy?" 
"Copy good buddy am reading you five by five."  , pause.
There was a silence. 
Five by five is max for the commuincation channel.
" Hey, buddy, Space to base!  Space to base!  Do you copy?" 
…………………………………………..Silent night
Holy Night.
I have you here my dear friend five by five.  All the country senses and more. 
That we are about of the Holy Spirit.  
"Space to base, Space to base. Do you read me?" 
"Base to Space, loud and clear.  Smile. five by five. all clear."
as ever be well.  With love,  Stephen Craig Rowe

    Merry Christmas Painter!!! Faith is not with us at this time of year, but hope she is well wherever she is at. Just got back from walking home from the church for midnight mass. The mass did not end until real late, stopped by at Denny’s on our way home to say hello to our neighbor who works there. Had free cocoa and pie… as a treat from her…  how nice… It was really cold out here…  Jer and I were so happy to be home at last… only have few hours to catch some zzz’s before getting up at 7 for the techinican to come here to fix our cable wire… I pray that it is not going to cost us anything… Well, have a blessed Christmas! Wish we could have stood home and watched the Christmas Mass with the Pope, but we are without the service for over a week… waaaaah.. oh well at least we went to the midnight mass in person although it’s nothing like the great Christmas Mass with the Pope himself…
    Love ya 2!!!
