Gas Pains

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.

Late last year Jill and I fetched a Christmas tree from the farm to place on our porch.  It's a good place for a large holiday decoration if you live in a small Tosa bungalow.

Not that I'm suspicious or anything - but the tree morphed into some sort of large Green Bay Packer talisman.

Following the Packer Super Bowl win the tree stayed on the porch with green lights for Saint Patrick's Day.  After serving as an Easter decoration it was stripped of its branches for mulch.

The dogs tussle over the remains of the trunk.

This chrysalis/cocoon was found on the tree before it was discarded.

Lacking in entomology skills this has got me stumped.

We've been keeping it in cold storage in the fridge since we found it.  On Monday we put it in clear container to thaw.  I'm hoping something emerges so I can solve the mystery.

In the interim - can anybody help me out?
