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 going to try fly-fishing, although I thought I could catch them easily enough with a little honey on the kitchen counter. But then I tried to tie a lure, and I just couldn't tie one small enough for a fly to bite on it. Even with hardware magnifying goggles over my glasses.
Ice-fishing didn't work out well either.
