This Just In ...

Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely young daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.

"Goodbye, Honey, I'll be right back!"

I have blogged nothing about my wife being pregnant since I made the baby announcement several months ago. I just feel that’s like home movies. Nobody cares, and if they do, they’ll ask.

But I have to pass this along. Out of the blue a little while ago, Jennifer put on her coat, said she’d be right back, and left the Fischer household. Apparently she understood I was set for the night and wouldn’t leave the house on any errand of any kind, including a trip to Kopp’s where today, one of the featured flavors is:

Red Velvet Cake

We are still uncertain as to the origin of this rich and delicious cake with it’s dark red coloring. Some say it originated in the south and others are giving credit to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. The passion of this renowned dessert has now moved to the Midwest where Kopp’s will again revive it’s popularity.

Those of you who really know us realize I am not speaking out of school or badly about my dear, lovely wife when I say that even without a baby on the way, she can eat. BOY can she eat, but doesn’t seem to gain an ounce (until now, that is).

Jennifer has had the ultimate pregnancy, zero complications, but her appetite that was the size of New Jersey to begin with has kicked into another gear.

She will be home soon with a pint, maybe a gallon of Red Velvet Cake custard. It will be like having a baby shower in the house without all the giggling females and silly games.

And how much of that custard will I see?

Try zippo.
