Palate cleanser

Not to sweep aside the important discourse happening here, but with the outrage machine spinning up as it always does, every so often I am need a reminder there is good in the world.

So here’s a picture form my daughter’s 6 month photo session. I look at these when I become world weary.

By the by, Sophie, when you’re busy trying to scrub the internet of everything your mother and I put up of you in 15 years, I’m sorry you were just too damned cute.

[Edited to add: I have another post I’m working on, but maybe I’ll take the day off and enjoy the weather. I’ll rant about colleges tomorrow.]

  1. Well getting video of her laughing was just way to hard, and I’m lazy. 😉
    But man, after watching news reports I was glad to hear that giggle.

  2. Can’t help noting that this image reminds me of two pictures in a MAD magazine article about “home movie cameras” many, many years ago. The first picture was of a baby, somewhat weirder-looking than tsrblke’s, over a captions saying “Why settle for a boring picture like this…” and a second, nearly identical picture, only with a long string of drool hanging from baby’s mouth, captioned “…when a home movie camera can bring you exciting scenes like this!”

    Yeah, I’m strange. And I have a long, woefully selective memory.

    Beautiful little girl, tsrblke! Brings much-needed smiles!

  3. So….I guess she didn’t get a. 22 pistol for her six month birthday.

    What kind of a father are you?

    I thought you were raised better than that!

  4. No. But by the grace of my wife, I get a .22 rifle for Christmas.

    Someday I’ll take her to the range to use it. Maybe if she’s good I’ll even pass it to her when she’s older.
