In our Christmas Eve issue December 24, 1998, I wrote:
Your scribe is proud to report that his son
Christopher Knobel Homren was born at 1:54pm Friday,
December 18th, weighing in at 8 lbs, 10oz, 21 inches.
Mom and baby are fine and resting at home for the
holidays. Dad's still kind of bewildered and thinking,
"please kid, get your own books to color in..."
Well, today my firstborn turned 13 and he's nearly as tall as me. Playing basketball this morning he repeatedly smoked me, at times just taking the ball out of my hands as I tried hopelessly to make a shot past him. All I could do is laugh. Mom calls him "Sasquatch". This issue is dedicated to a fine (and tall) straight-A student, Christopher. You've made Dad proud. Happy birthday!
