This is my gas station for a variety of reasons. They are open when I leave for work which is unusual because I get there between 3:45 am - 5 am each weekday. The other reason I became extremely loyal to them is their lottery ticket rule. You cannot scratch off your lotto tickets at the counter or in line.

This is also where I gauge where gas prices are going. This gas station always appears to be on the lower-middle end of gas prices in the Greater-Danbury area. Just a few weeks ago (8/4/22) we told you that the gas prices there had dipped to below $4.

Greater Danbury Bobcat Sightings, Too Close for Comfort

This morning (4/28/21) on the Ethan and Lou Show we were discussing a viral video from North Carolina. In it, a couple was brutally attacked by a rabid bobcat but according to USA Today, they are going to be OK. 

This sent me off on a tirade about bobcats because this happens to be one of my pet peeves. In the Greater-Danbury area, wildlife sightings are frequent and when one animal gets photographed, everyone piles on and says, yeah me too You saw a bear? I saw a bear! 

I made the case that too many people are claiming to have seen bobcats recently, and with no proof. I said, look I know they are prevalent but they can't be around in the numbers that people will have you believe. Every Frank and Fran in the area says they saw one yesterday. 

I said, if you saw a bobcat, prove it. It looks like I may have been underestimating the bobcats and the Ethan and Lou listeners because they did prove it and in a hurry. These are the Greater-Danbury Bobcat Sightings That are Too Close for Comfort.
