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.
My fourth and last goes off to college also in the fall.
Dar Williams "The one who knows"
Nickelcreek "When you come back down"
and the one I listened to when I went off to college,now I am
the old one: Tom Rush "Child's Song" Tear jerker.
Lovely song. I like bluegrass music. I have my dad's boy scout hunting style knife. He broke the pommel and replaced it with a rough carved piece of pine as a youth. It is one of most prized possesions.
