Alligators In Sheboygan

The mosquito bites are all gone and finally a good nights sleep. No more worries about raccoons getting into coolers but it was a great camping trip. It was my third time with the fun bunch and the first time it hasn't rained.

In fact, it's a real summer day today and I even turned on the air conditioning. Let's hope it stays dry for the Brady Street Festival saturday as I'm grilling out for the masses. Well, okay, maybe just around 20 people but it still takes talent and skill.

Legendary actor James Garner passed away over the weekend. He was one of my all-time favorites. The Rockford Files was an excellent series. But "The Great Escape" and "Barbarians at the Gate" were two of my favorite movies. He will be missed by many.

NASA has renamed a building at the Kennedy Space Center after recently passed astronaut Neil Armstrong. It's hard to believe it's been 45 years since he made the first walk on the moon.

We played a game at the campfire tent over the weekend called Cards Against Humanity. It's really a politically inappropriate game but one I wished I would have invented. It's so clever and the most hilarious game that I've ever played.

Legos still keep washing ashore near Cornwall, England. It's been 17 years since a large wave knocked over 62 containers holding 4.8 million Lego pieces overboard from a cargo ship. They are always in pristine condition after all this time. Just think how long those plastic bottles float around for.

A four foot long alligator was caught up north in Sheboygan County. Somebody apparently had a baby alligator and just released it into Sheboygan. Maybe the Legos aren't so bad after all!
