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.
When I was a kid Summer was soooo long. Yes by September it seemed too soon for it to be over but during Summer vacation it seemed to go on forever. As an adult working and dealing with all the issues adults deal with Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring all just passed by without notice. Now that I'm retired living in a retired community I rarely know what time or day it is and Summer is 365 days long.
