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.
I checked the house finch nest in the hanging basket just a short while ago and the chicks are packed-in there cheek by jowl. They have really bulked-up (as far as small birds go).
And they're all sporting fuzzy mohawks and enough wing feathers that fledging is probably just around the corner.
I'm going to miss them after they're gone - but at least I get my porch back to myself.
