Frohe Weihnachten!

From the Editor: This is unbelievable. Patrick called Saturday morning at 5:51am from Leitzig Germany where it is currently 3pm. He asked if I needed any Hummels… which I do, I am missing the angle and one shepherd from the Hummel Nativity scene (dubbed “The Jesus Barn Pooty” by Madigan but that is a whole ‘nother story). He is in some waiting area for a hour and a half and then the plane will go to Shannon, Ireland. And then to Maine before finally getting to Dallas. He did find a place to charge his phone. He is in very good spirits but he is getting sick because he has been in such crappy conditions with so many people many who have been “coughing all over me.” He is on the lookout for some zinc lozenges and has been pounding vitamin C. So after four days Patrick has finally made it out of Kuwait. And no, he is not allowed to drink, imagine going to Germany and Ireland without so much as 1 beer. I’m sure some day this will be funny…

Oh, Frohe Weihnachten means Merry Christmas in German.
