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.
Another one is the car wires that are edible for squirrels.
Trees are like the interstate for animals and you have to keep them trimmed around vehicle.
Mr. Owl relocated by the squirrel tree!
The raccoons may have rousted him and I couldn't believe how high up the trees they went.
Some scraps tonight for all the critters.

My car is a 20-year old Ford Explorer and it is filthy from the tree sap. I just wash the car every 6 months or so. The car is a tool to get me from Point A to Point B, I'm not spending hours keeping it clean. I do keep it serviced, it's coming up on 200,000 miles on the odometer and never had any major work on it.
