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.
We wish all you kids a hard life: living hard, studying hard, working hard, playing hard, loving hard, giving hard, praying hard, worshipping hard, and loving God hard so you can have the life in abundance through Christ which he offers us.
Me Mum would often say, "We wish all you kids a hard life!" to her kids.
BUt she wasn't adding any of the rest.
I don't know how the others are doing which tends to me thinkin' they are experiencing the hard she was wishin'
But it really is quite an easy life.
Come to me, all you that labour, and are burdened, and I will refresh you.
Take up my yoke upon you, and learn of me, because I am meek, and humble of heart: and you shall find rest to your souls.
For my yoke is sweet and my burden light. Matthew 11:28-30
