Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.
Commentary, observations and musings about the outdoors, life in general and maybe Tosa politics and personalities will be the order of the day. He savors a lively debate as much as terrific cooking.
Crank-up the volume for Annie Lennox - Ooooh baby!
I know that at least one of my 38 readers suspects that I dislike the Mayor. Therefore I want to go on record and make it abundantly clear that nothing could be further from the truth. I try to get through life without the burden of hauling around all sorts of dislike. That kind of negativity will take years off of your life so I reserve my dislike for a small number of really bad people.
As a matter of fact, Mayor Didier and I had a friendly chat last Wednesday over at Hart Park. I even had an opportunity to ask a couple of questions. Our visit was cordial and infused with witty innuendo. But you would have to be there to understand that. It is complicated.
As our stay on Grand Isle drew to a close one of the fellas on the block said - Tom, you're a helluva fisherman. You fit right in with us folks. You even speak some French. You should buy a place down here.
I turn to my wife.
A seminal group with so much talent. More good guitar work...
There has been an interesting discussion going-on over at the Tosa Town Square. It's basically a critique of David Letterman's tasteless joking about the Palin family.
Anyway, as the discussion ensued I was referred-to as a member of the spineless middle which inspired me to offload about some stuff that has been rolling around and cluttering my normally well-ordered mind.
I've seen an endless succession of sunrises in my life.
And the good ones are pretty impressive.
Start your day by soaking-up some guitar religion from another master.
Aside from the guitar solo - the congas, timbales and overall percussion are pretty awesome...
Any other frustrated gardeners out there?
I know that I am.
I subscribe to Milwaukee Magazine and the story about Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn, like most of Milwaukee Magazine's stories, had faded from my memory.
That was until the news broke and the attendent ruckus began about the indiscretions between the Chief and reporter/conservative pundit Jessica McBride.
Ripped-off from a 1991 Letterman show featuring Chris Rea.
Short version of the original song but more good guitar work nonetheless...
This morning my wife said to me - You know honey, your corn is looking pretty cute lately.
Ooooh. I love it when she talks to me like that.
This little fella is less than a couple of inches long.
He sports some fashionable camouflage.
