It’s All In The NameAugust 15, 2008
The previous post with Ian Hunter commenting on Marc Bolan reminded me of the time I emailed Ian Hunter’s The Horse’s Mouth to let him know the first of my four grandsons was named Hunter in his honor, something that I am sure has happened a bazillion times over the years. (Our daughter and son-in-law gave my wife and I the duties of selecting their two sons’ first names.) Ian Hunter’s reply was funny and reminds us of how time flies:
“Bloody hell – it used to be babies – now its grand babies! Congrats!” – Ian Hunter
The photo of ‘my’ Hunter (below) was taken when he was two years old. He is now seven and enters the first grade next week. I used an older photo because it’s colorful (like his namesake), he is standing in front of his cousin’s race car, and I just like the pic.
Grandkid #5 due February-March 2009!
“My” Hunter (Grandson #1 of 4), named after the great rocker. And yes, he has a guitar!
