Merry Christmas to one and all. It’s been an unusually quiet Christmas down here this year. No, all-night parties are fireworks Where I live in Colombia it was the dullest Christmas since I moved here over 12 years ago. It was nice there was even a little traditional Christmas music this morning. I hope people are taking the quiet time to be thankful and look to the future. I want to wish everybody a very MERRY CHRISTMAS I hope today was everything you wanted it to be and that you are all well and safe. This is FATS and ANTONIA saying HAPPY HOLIDAYS to everyone from Medellin, Colombia.

Well by now I’m sure everybody knows trump is running for president again. I really don’t think he wants the job but is just trying to stay out of jail. I don’t think he has as much influence as he has had in the past because people are tired of hearing the same old thing over and over. What Trump has done is allow other anti-democracy advocates a chance to spread their venom out there. Because he was successful at perpetrating lies and getting people to believe their others are doing the same thing but not really agreeing with or supporting Trump. Mainstream politicians are afraid of Trump because of his loyal band of miscreants that dote on his every word as the truth. I worry about that because it tells me the country is getting dumber and that people believe we should become a more totalitarian government without such things as freedom of speech and a free press. I find it incredulous that veterans and older folk want to see our country like that. Trump is not a well-educated man in many ways he is still a petulant little boy who thinks he knows more than anybody else. You know I think all politicians think like that but most just dream about it he try’s to force people to believe it. I hope we have enough intelligent people left to rid us of people like Marjorie Taylor Greene, Loren Boebert, Ron DeSantis, and others. Time will tell for us all.

Well contrary to what people might have hoped for I’m back. I spent the last 7 days trying to get better it now seems to be happening. I don’t know what I had only that it basically just kicks my ass. I lose my equilibrium, my ability to taste or smell and I run a high fever. My wife said I didn’t need a doctor but then she complained I wasn’t getting better fast enough. I can taste and smell now I am not so dizzy so maybe I”m over this, anyhow I just wanted to stop by and let you know. This is FATS and his very concerned friend ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
