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.
As a general rule I find it difficult to feel any sympathy for anybody at the Internal Revenue Service. Even more so lately inasmuch as they've found themselves the center of attention. Seems there's been a flap about targeting certain 'not-for-profit groups' that have 'tea party' or 'patriot' in their name. The IRS using their IRS clout to single-out a non-profit organization for scrutiny. A non-profit with the laudable mission of educating me about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. What nerve.
The thing about Labs is they think nothing of putting something in their mouth and swallowing it. Doesn't matter if it is something nutritious like a raw carrot or something dead and disgusting they find in the woods. As evidence of this a couple of weeks ago Sister carried around with her some deer's foreleg for a half of a day. The good news is we don't have rodents or bunnies bothering us. The bad news is the dogs are on worm medicine year-round and once and awhile we have to make a run to the vet.
