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.
Re: the formal clothes at "camp"...really up until the late fifties men mostly didn't leave the house without a tie and hat.
I can remember attending a Detroit Lions football game in 1958 at Biggs Stadium...the Lie-downs (their should-be name) were playing the Colts; sitting in my seat I could just glimpse the playing field and the players, but only when the men in front of me sat down...which wasn't often. Can't remember seeing a single lady there.
Everybody was in coats, hats, and ties...at an NFL game! That's just the way men dressed...until really, the early sixties.
Personally...I'd like to go back if I could...in many ways it was a better world.
The Ascent of Man the 1973 documentary from the book --author Jacob Bronowski also narrated the TV series.
What was endearingly hilarious was to see the liitle old man, hauled off to his book's far-remote locations (big budget groundbreaking documentary series -take a look at the link if you want to lose 13 hours), such a the scrag and scree of the lips of active volcanoes) in his person, would be wearing his street clothes, with a outdoors jacket maybe. Sometimes you see the shoes --streets of London wing-tips --on jungle trails in the Owen Stanley Mountains of New Guinea. LOL --too much -!
