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 found this arachnid while out for a walk with the dogs. It's a hefty size as far as spiders go - more than an inch from the tip of the forelegs to the end of the hind legs.
It prefers a sunny location and if disturbed will drop to the ground to hide.
Who is it?
