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.
A number of us at Maggie's are off to Nantucket for a wedding this weekend. My Nantucket photos are on the other computer and it is too much trouble to move them, so I'll offer a photo of my favorite town in Cape Cod - close enuf, with fewer yuppies and fewer Hummers (meaning the auto - not the "thing") than Nantucket, which used to be a distant, rough-and- ready Yankee place but sure has changed into a new East Hampton, which I do not approve of. Photo of downtown Wellfleet. Need a good photo of the Cong. Church but they never came out very well - always rainy or foggy etc. It rings ship's bells - not regular time. Curved pews - not a bad place to connect with God. As is any other place on earth, if one's head is in the right place. Well, really, the place hardly matters.
