Teddy Roosevelt In Milwaukee

It's been a cold and windy day. Never the less, Coco had a nice practice at 6:30am. He pops right out of bed for practice. What a difference a year makes! I had to drag him out of bed for everything when he was in 4th grade.

Hurricane season is a little over half over. So far so good for our friends in Key West!

John Mellencamp tickets went on sale today for his Milwaukee show. I've seen him around ten times and he puts on a great performance every time. The only problem is the concert is for next year on June 5th. That's almost ten months away. I don't even know what I'm doing October 5th a few weeks away. That's just plain ridiculous.

We've been watching the new Roosevelt documentary by Ken Burns. It's been excellent so far. It jumps around a bit but he's trying to cover the lives of 3 people in this documentary and it's not an easy endeavour. 

Teddy Roosevelt was actually shot outside a Milwaukee hotel on October 14, 1912. He was running for a third presidential term but he survived the shooting. On that date in 2012 they did a recreation of the event where the Gilpatrick Hotel once stood. Krissy and I attended and the photos are below.
