We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I was only able to get out a few times this year and I whiffed the one chance I had. I set up on a trail and a doe and a skipper came in and the two-and-a-half year-old gave me a perfect shot which I brain cramped (and no I don't want to talk about it). I learned a thing or two about bow hunting though. I'll see her next year.
Congratulations to your friends on a successful season.
