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.
Our genius trainer has prescribed us morning calisthenic workouts for our next little getaway.
Genius Trainer hates to see the backsliding that occurs after 10 days away from him. His demands are in addition to our usual Cape Cod daily multi-hour hikes and pond races, not to mention body-surfing in the icy ocean with the seals and sharks for as long as we can. For me, few thrills equal that when there is good wavy gravy.
Here is his email:
