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.
I've seen pictures of the beautiful wisteria covering the pergola of the house we moved into 7 months ago. Unfortunately the previous owner cut it down as it appeared to be taking the pergola with it due to the weight. Sure wish some of it was over us when the sun is high in the sky. Yours is beautiful but I know if not attended to it can cause damage by taking over the house!. I know the hummingbirds loved it as they have come back but have had to adapt to the feeders I have put up in it's place.
