i think all of state road 60 is one of the worst in north america for deer collisons, and a couple of people have hit moose on there in the past few decades as well . . .

who shoots doves? do they even taste any good? by the way, both of prince's pet doves, the ones listed as backup vocals on at least one recording, have now passed away -- as if that situation was not already too much to take . . .

Hwy 60 from Gotham to Muscoda on the Wisconsin River is nice... Or Hwy 133 from Lone Rock towards Avoca starting at the infamous "target" cliff... Authorities found a crocodile meandering along the river banks at Lone Rock couple years ago.

the target cliff is the one that people have hit at high rates of speed, often on purpose, so they put a net in front of it, correct? i think that is where someone i know swerved to miss two deer and hit an opossum with 20 babies in the pouch, which ended up saving 7 of them because didelphis virginiana linnaeus 1753 only has 13 nipples . . . 18 went back in the wild after being taken care of and being nursed by a couple of cats in addition to geting extra milk out of an eye dropper, and two of them ended up being unreleasable and live in a little house in her back garden with a covered walkway into the garage and sometimes go around to schools and so forth . . . people are also fishing pacu (colossoma macropomum kennedy & eigenmann 1903) out of the wisconsin river semi-regularly now too; they are the vegetarian relatives of piranhas wih quasi-human dentition -- catching one anywhere could be quite a shock to a lot of people. not as much as an electric eel (electrophorus electricus gill 1864) of course . . .

Well, if you turn North down County Hwy TB 1/2 mile west of Gotham towards Muscoda and in season, you'll hit the trail of last ribbits-dead and soon-to-be-dead toads whose ancestors Jim Morrison warbled about in Riders of the Storm.

Thriller in the Bradley... New stadium is coming along nicely too.

Update: no one fears a deer caught in the headlights.

Milwaukee was fun, though. There's still an old world feel in certain neighborhoods. We ate at a place just off the Interstate, North of Miller Park. $17.99 for the 4-piece chicken "Daily Special." Fortunately, it was happy hour, so I could buy a pint of Mai Bock for $4 instead. That was my meal. I'm still too much of a tightwad from the homeless years to spend that much on a meal.

Old bldng closes Aug 10 to Sept 7. New bldng opens Sept 13. Why can't most of the 650 workers keep their jobs at the new bldng?

Milwaukee Bucks arena closure to eliminate 650 jobs
https://www.channel3000.com/news/money/ ... /746207708

"The letter says the BMO Harris Bradley Center will be closed in anticipation of a new arena for the team. The closure will mean a loss of 45 full-time and more than 600 part-time positions...

Closing operations will begin Aug. 10 and are expected to be completed Sept. 7. The new $524 million arena will support about 620 jobs once it's operational. The first announced event at the new facility is a Sept. 13 show by comic Kevin Hart."

I'm not sure that some, or even most of them won't be re-employed once the new building is up and running. The excerpt you posted didn't say where the 620 people needed to operate the new building were coming from.
