As some of you may or may not know, my daughter is a television news producer, currently working in Nashville, Tennessee. Her assignment is the morning news, which means she blasts herself up at umpti-ump in the morning to organize and prepare a show which probably starts somewhere between 4:30 AM and 6. It can't be much fun effectively working third shift (something I've never done myself), but she's stuck with it and seems to have found her rhythm there.
That last statement may be on the conservative side, though. She just texted me a few minutes ago to let me know that ... well, there was this event over the weekend ... and she sorta won something:
Wow, cool. Congrats to her, Loren.
Many thanks, Bertold!
Much appreciated, Ruth!
That looks like a real trophy, one that a person worked for and earned. You must be very proud, Loren.

NewsChannel ? This Morning ???
Tell Samantha that the trophy may bring her pleasure to see now, however when she is 80 years old looking back on her life and sees the trophy, she knows she earned it and feels the thrill once again.
I have my trophy on a table next to my chair and enjoy remembering the events that brought it to me.
As soon as I figure out how to get a photo from my camera to my computer I will share it with you.
Joan, the inscription, so far as I can resolve it, is as follows:
31ST MIDSOUTH REGIONAL EMMY® AWARDS
NewsChannel 5 This Morning: Winter Storm
She has long since made me proud by being her own person, by owning herself and determining where she wants to go and what she wants to do with her life. How much of that came from her parents and how much came from herself, I do not know and will not guess.
I just know she done good ... and you don't beat that with no stick.
That's awesome, Loren. I'm happy for her. Let her know she has some out-of-town congratulatory wishers here in addition to her father.
Glad to hear it... congratulations to Samantha!
(And bravo to you for "brava"!)
That is so cool. I WOULD be proud too. Her name is also mentioned in Wiki;
Awesome, proud daddy!! The story was about a winter storm? Too bad it wasn't about the rise of atheism in her region.
Loren, what a wonderful award! Can't beat that!
