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 bet you’re scratching your head and wondering if I’ve gone plum crazy.
Wow! October already.
Start your weekend with Colin Hay - and Down Under...
My pal Paul Ryan is fond of explaining our country’s economic prospects as nothing more than another road to Greece.
And I’m going to call him out on that.
You know Gas you are a real philistine. A cultural low-life. Everyone should watch that movie. It should be required watching in school!
Barely a couple of weeks ago Jill and I hopped on the Paris #69 bus (just down the block from our hotel outside of the Place des Vosges) and traveled to the end of the line – to Père Lachaise Cemetery – the largest graveyard in Paris.
My regular readers already know I like nothing better than a good graveyard.
I cannot recall if it was an email or a regular mailing that featured a blonde Lab that I noticed last week. It had a nifty catchphrase along with a good-looking dog so it caught my attention. Not that I needed much encouragement as I had already gone online to purchase my small game license in anticipation of the fall ritual of chasing roosters in Spink County, SD. Nevertheless, following a photo contest and everything on Facebook, South Dakota Tourism rightly nailed it with their Take Me Hunting campaign.
Sunday morning my two Labs were giving me the hairy eyeball. To be fair - on Saturday we'd been out hunting and bagged a ringneck before I retired to a deer stand with my bow. Complicating the situation the shotgun had been left conspicuously propped on the bench at the back door. A handful of shells along with some dog kibble were in the pockets of my field jacket on the hook. And now the pooches were giving me the look. The 'take me hunting' look.
Start your weekend with a very awesome a capella version of this classic.
Stay for the ending.
