A Halloween staple on this blog. Enjoy...and have a scary Halloween weekend. BOO!
I had an idea to gather some hunting buddies and have an old-fashioned, back to basics tent camp/hunting weekend. A "rendezvous" (as it's being referred to - for future years). What a grand time this past weekend was. Dad, brother Jason, Uncle Fran, Cousin Gerry, Kenny "Kahuna" Koepsel, Bill Dudi and my close friend from college, Jim Sickels. It was a rainy weekend up at Buckhorn State Park in Necedah, WI (near Mauston), our long-time deer bow hunt spot, but the rain was merciful and only doused us in our sleep.
Special "thank you's" go out to Jas who did most of the organizing and Jim, who did most of the cooking with Jas. We ate like kings.

(Above) Just what Vikes' fans were waiting for...the Rookie of the Year Percy Harvin (2009) to rip it up. In a "must-win" game for both teams, the Minnesota Vikings held on to edge the Dallas Cowboys at home, 24-21. This was a nail biter - like all the seemingly lackluster Vikings' games this year. Come on, Vikes! It's the Packers in Green Bay this Sunday night! Heads in the game! 4 quarters!! Let's roll to 3-3 and get this season shakin'! SKOL FAVRE! SKOL VIKINGS!!!

The penultimate ambulance chaser, one of Gloria Schmalred's current cases involves representing an illegal alien to whom she referred as "Rosa Parks" (a legal, black female who stood up for blacks' rights in the 1960's).
Ms. Schmalred, I did not know Rosa Parks but I do know your client is nothing like Rosa Parks.

Rookie of the Year (2009) Vikings WR/KR Percy Harvin was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance in the Viking win against Dallas, 24-21, Harvin’s second such honor.
Harvin returned the opening kickoff of the second half 95 yards for a touchdown and tied the game at 14-14. Harvin holds the franchise record with three kickoffs returned for touchdowns and did so in only 20 career games. SKOL PERCY! SKOL VIKINGS!!

Found a great coffeehouse in New Berlin - The Gingerbread House. Beautiful inside. And they have chickens running around outside. I highly recommend it. I don't recommend taking your picture in the men's room. The light is horrible.

If you're a fan of AMC's "Mad Men", then you've undoubtedly noticed Don Draper's latest secretary, Megan (top picture). Check out this 2009 interview from Now Toronto. You might also have noticed Canadian actress Jessica Pare in the comedy, "Hot Tub Time Machine". I'll let you search the Internet for Jessica's clips...I mean that movie clip.

I just purchased this from my friend, artist Pamela Anderson. She has a studio in Wauwatosa, Underwood Gallery. If you stand at a distance, it looks like a farmhouse or barn set back in a field. Back away from your computer and take a look...am I right? This could look great in my newly painted kitchen.
