Here's a little fun for your Sunday morning. I was reading through my dad's professional
biography this morning, and was reminded of one of his claims to fame from 1981,
a year before I was born...

My dad, Steve, is the reporter in the tweed sports coat with the shaggy hair, glasses, and
camera. It is really not that big of a stretch because he was a reporter for the Times-News
at the time, he did have shaggy-ish hair, he does wear glasses, and he did (and still does)
wear tweed sports coats and have a mustache. For the record, he didn't drive a station wagon.
Overall, I think the cartoonist depicted him well!

Now, I have known about this feature my whole life, and I used to stare in amazement at the
framed original of the first strip that my dad had hanging in his office. I never knew there
was a storyline, with more strips following it. I guess I should have assumed because it was
pretty leading. After ten minutes spent on Google, I found the archive and started sorting
through them. Isn't it amazing that it took me this long to dig these up!?! And, Daddy, I am
sure you have these in your files somewhere. Were you holding out on us?
