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.
There'll be no exercise here. Mass at 11:30 (because I'm sleeping in and won't make the 9:00). And then it's boardgames with the family. I bought Catan for a family present and my 10 year old has won the first three games. I'm ready.
Enjoy the hike. Took a hike through the woods on Christmas tagging trees to dig up for bonsai at the end of winter. Not vigorous, but enjoyable.
