What We Got Here

Ed.’s got a new day job — actually, it’s the same old day job, but a bit different — and he’s still trying to find time to resume his old hobbies, like publishing this newsletter.

David Frederick reports that "'Convoy' will air  on Cable Network Showtime Extreme  and on Showtime Extreme (Pacific Standard Time).

Merry Christmas!


Sing Silent Night
(C.W. McCall, Bill Fries, Chip Davis)
From the album Rubber Duck

When the snow falls on Christmas Eve,
And everything's white
I sit by the window,
And remember another night
When Mama played the organ,
And we turned off all the lights
And we all stood around her
And sang Silent Night

The organ is quiet now,
And Mama's gone
The sound of that Christmas Eve
Will live on and on
We sang all the old carols,
The hymns she loved to hear
And she played them over, one by one,
From memory, and by ear

Silent Night by Carol McCrady

And then she'd find the ancient album,
With its pages turned gold
And the crayon-colored paper star
I made so long ago
But brighter than any star
Was the love in Mama's eyes
As she said, "Merry Christmas, kids",
And she kissed us goodnight

And the organ's quiet now,
And Mama's gone
But the sound of that Christmas Eve
Will live on and on
The years have gone by now,
Since that last Christmas Eve
But the joy is still with me,
And the love will never leave

When Mama played the organ,
And we turned off all the lights
And we all stood together
And sang the last Silent Night
