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 fine rendition of the song with those pictures coming and going allowed me to picture my wife and I as we travel down the last roads together. Too much road behind and not so much ahead for us but we are living it - not whimpering and just surviving. My bones are gettin' shaky and my teeth are ground down, but Honey, I'm still the same old man.
