Merry Christmas 2011 from the eaves family



To all my friends here on the blog, my entire family and I wanted to wish everyone that visits here a very Merry Christmas.  This March will be the third year of Eavesdropping with Johnny, and it has been such a pleasure to have met so many new friends and post so many artifacts from the world of Trek and beyond.  The last year has been a busy one and there have been few posts, but with the coming of 2012 the blog will be up and running hopefully as regularly as it was in the first years.  Lots of stuff to scan n post will be coming, and I’m looking forward to more special StarShip designs named after some of the readers here.


Christmas is a special day in the Eaves home, and we are all so very thankfull for all the friends and family that we have so close to us and for the gift of Gods’s son Jesus who was born on this day.  Thank you, Lord, for this and all You do for us.  A very special Merry Christmas to all the brave men and woman who serve in the US Army, Marines, Air Force, Navy, and the Coast Guard for your service and sacrifice in keeping us here at home and those abroad safe and free.


 The Shepherds Worship the Savior: Out in the fields, an angel of the Lord appeared to the shepherds who were tending their flocks of sheep by night. The angel announced that the Savior had been born in the town of David. Suddenly a great host of heavenly beings appeared with the angels and began singing praises to God. As the angelic beings departed, the shepherds decided to travel to Bethlehem and see the Christ-child. There they found Mary, Joseph and the baby, in the stable. After their visit, they began to spread the word about this amazing child and everything the angel had said about Him. They went on their way still praising and glorifying God. But Mary kept quiet, treasuring their words and pondering them in her heart. It must have been beyond her ability to grasp, that sleeping in her arms—the tender child she had just borne—was the Savior of the world.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours too! I became acquainted with your site last year or so, after seeing a link at Doug Drexler’s, and prior to that had bought a copy of your Star Trek Next Generation Sketchbook: The Movies, and loved your designs. It was great finding your site and learning of your other talents. I’ve always wondered how you went about doing the photo shoots with the lovely models and aircraft– “Hey, come out to the desert with me in 115 degree heat and pose on top of hot metal aircraft.” The promise of the red dress and a phaser must be it. Have a happy holiday.

    John, as much as I love seeing your sketches and concept art, the pin ups and space ship models, and your work in film I gotta say your holiday posts and your respect for military are always my favorites.

    Merry Christmas to you and your girls, and blessings to all the fans here!
