November’s child

No child of mine, this

It’s a happy coincidence that my new young ‘un was born November 2, resulting in three weeks of downtime during this month’s sweeps.  Tune into 11 Alive during the Thanksgiving holiday and beyond, and you may stumble upon my dazed return to the news biz.  My hiatus started Monday, when Mrs. LAF went into labor and delivered a boy named Clinton early the morning of Election Day.

An actual photo, the origin of Clint’s name, and other musings on my curious adventure into later-in-life paternity is viewable on another blog I started some months ago at the direction of my mother, who remains disappointed that I didn’t become a photographer for National Geographic or a writer for Life.   I’ve kept it under wraps until now.  Click here and be the first to actually visit this site, which I may or may not update indefinitely depending on my level of energy and spare time.

You parents of babies may know something about that.

    We’re so happy for you Jez and Doug. We remember October 25th as the due date, so I’ve been nervous not hearing anything. Glad to see that all is well. Here’s hoping that Clinton can change the world.
    Love, Lynn and Don

    Yikes! You didn’t look pregnant when we had the picture made of all the Photogs together along with you. You carried it well. Seriously congratulations to you and your wife! I am curious as to how old you will be when Clinton hits High School?

    Mazel tov! Thanks for sharing. You are an amazing writer, and the personal bit was an added bonus to the musings you create about the local broadcast news!
