Backyard visitor

This guy was standing just outside my backyard sliding glass doors... staring at me while I was in the process of taking a few pictures of him...

He seemed to be saying, "Wanna come out here and mix it up big boy?"

Having been raised in Brooklyn, I was a little afraid that he might eat me, so I made sure that the sliding glass doors were locked.

After a while he ambled off to the side, ate most of my potato plants (again) and came back to look inside some more.

He kept looking to the sides, and then back inside the house, actually looking a little bored that no action was forthcoming.

Then my wife came down and still the buck stood there, placidly looking at us look and gesture at him through the glass doors.

Finally, bored by the two humans, he walked to the fence, looked back at us as if to say, "Look what I can do" and jumped straight over the fence back into the woods.

That's right, you better walk away!

Cough, cough...

Not heard (yet) on Univision

Newspapers from the Dominican Republic are all abuzz about one of my peeps, Cuban-American Senator from New Jersey Bob Menendez, allegedly shortchanging two sex workers from the Dominican Republic during an alleged Easter week booty call to a luxury estate that allegedly the Senator likes to visit.

And there's a video where the two Dominican sex providers discuss how the Senator promised them $500 each, but after he was done, only paid them $100.

Cheap comemierda...

Wanna go to an opening tonight?
