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.
Ayup, it is beginnin to drip. Not too fast mind you, but it's coming. No, I ain't talkin about my prostate problem. We had two sunny days and the sap is running and it looks to be a good year - which means ---ing low prices. Country folk just can't win. You know, Bird Dog, that this is what passes for excitement here in the Northeast Kingdom. Maple sap. Thanks for the recipes - next bear I shoot, I'll yank out the heart like they say. No time for authoring this morning - gotta bring coffee down for the boys in the barn, then get the fires goin in the sugar shack.
