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.
You ask for more Vermont color. What the --- do ya mean by that, Mr. Circus Dog? Nothin quaint here, as you know. This ain't exactly Manchester or Ludlow or some other city-slicker joint down south. Well, Seth and the boys are milkin, and I just come in from the barn for a WallMart apple pie and sausage, and a coffee and a smoke. Then I'll bring them a pot down to the barn, and hope I don't slip on the ---ing ice or trip over one of the --- ----useless mutts and spill that pot of coffee all over my lap like that idiot McDonald's lady. It ain't cold - about 13. Today, will get the sugarin machinery going - got all the lines done. We run em all down the hills to the road now, like them modern sugar guys. Yer fancy friends in Connecticut would like to watch us pull the drowned mice out of the collection barrels, and think about that when they eat their ---- organic buckwheat pancakes or whatever they eat. The --- ----wood-pile is dry and ready, so we can start makin sugar with the first thaw. Any day now that sap will be runnin fast. Don't know why we ---ing bother, with prices so low the past ten years or more. Jes got too many trees up here nowadays, specially with farmin a dyin art. Oh, ----, there's that ---- mouse again - I'm gonna stomp that little ----- into the linoleum before Spring. Woops, too fast for this old fart. Anyway, my friend, is this what you mean by Vermont color? Remember, this is a favor to you. My writin ain't the best but I got my pride. Ayup, I do.
