Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.

Our deer camp rocks!
Five deer on opening day. Plus two already in the freezer from last month.
We don't need no stinking deer trustee.
Ordinarily there would be more hunting today. But the day dawned with drizzle, followed by rain, which was followed by rain, fog and wind.

Anyone want to wager if Childress is coach tomorrow?
We also butchered three of the deer and got them in the freezer.
We'll finish the remaining two tomorrow morning and tidy-up the machine shed, the garage and the house.
Tonight we dine like kings.
Fresh loin of venison in a peppercorn marinade - grilled medium rare - garden squash, potatoes, Swiss chard and green beans with corn.
With homemade blueberry cobbler for dessert...
