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.
One of those stupid birds made a nest on the bench in my lawn mower shed. On TOP of my spool of weedwhacker string, right next to the boxes of mothballs I put into the motor the keep the mice out in between mows(they'll pack the engine cowling full in two days otherwise).
So now I have to announce myself before going in, otherwise I get a bird in the face. And I had to go and buy a new spool of trimmer string and mothballs.
Luckily I spotted the nest another bird started on my weedwhacker motor before she had eggs in it - same as last year.
It'd be nice if the birds would start nesting after I start needing to do lawnwork.
