This photo (taken by my wife) is pretty much the equivalent of those moments in the old Warner Brothers cartoons when Baby New Year replaces the haggard decrepit old previous year. Here we have my fresh-faced progeny in the foreground, replacing the ragged, scruffy old man worn down from several years of childherding.
Happy new year everyone. The blog will return from its current state of crappiness to its regular state of crappiness shortly.
