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.
Ah, yes. The DQ chocolate shake is my favorite--a treat my grandfather introduced me to when DQ's looked just like that. Had one today, in fact. Yum.
Whenever thoughts of "healthy food" threaten to come between me and my confection, I heed the words of Ben Stein's aged and failing father, who, after consuming a milk shake Ben smuggled into his hospital room, sagely advised, "Drink your milk shakes while you can."
Sometimes I just have to have a vanilla soft ice cream dipped in chocolate.
Always enjoyed Dairy Queen (nearest one to Wellfleet at the Orleans rotary I recall ? ), but the Harbor Freeze had the better view. Convenient to the square dances when those moved from behind Town Hall to the pier.
PJ's Dairy-Burger out on Route 6 also had the soft ice cream.
Carvel - loved Mr. Carvel using his own (distinctive) voice in ads. " .... and you can get it at your local Carvel ice cream store."
DQ Princess was written at the Fairfield Connecticut DQ. "The first Dairy Queen store in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois. While this Dairy Queen is no longer in operation, the building is still located at 501 N Chicago St."

Just like the old days. No inside seating. Lots of tall trees and shade. Very nice place! Plain vanilla cone or medium Oreo Blizzard. Now I'm drooling. Maybe I'll stop by on my way home Friday :-)
