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'm hope you don't look like that Marianne. I've a strong suspicion that Salt Dog is gay. If you photographed her without her head on she would look like a man. That is a man's ass. Flip her over and understandably the humor would abait - and no doubt he/she would be proven a brunette.
