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.
Polpis cottage in upper photo now available for only $20,000/week in August.
Lower cottage only $2700/week and available now in August. Seems a lot more reasonable to me, and less pretentious. But outdoor shower "not enclosed"? What? OK, watch me shower in the sun if you want to.
Once you have showered outdoors, you never want to shower indoors again.
My cousin, the dumb rich one who voted for Obama, used to own a house on Nantucket. He sold it back in the 1990s after he had a party for all his cousins who still survived. Beautiful island. Great party. Okay ... maybe he wasn't so dumb about real estate. He just had a brain fart about politics.
We had an outdoor shower in Mandal Estate on St. Thomas. There was a frame over the shower and screening on the frame; while we showered we often watched Iguanas walking overhead. It was especially nice in a tropical downpour...that was the life.
Yeah, I got no jones to keep up with the joneses. We were on the poor side of the island, but living like royalty. Life was so sweet I can just sit here and smile about it still...people ought to try to keep up with that.
Yes, perhaps off topic, as we usually are here. But I think that's what I said... that poor is relative. I've traveled, seen some of the worst, and am also grateful for what I have. Started work at eleven... and still haven't stopped, likely won't until I die. It's all good.
