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.
Nice...But does the evil woolly adelgid infest them? The inncuous jabborwoccky name belying their malevolence... Or is that just what afflicts (and killed off all ours when I was pregnant and nursing so refused to spray or have them sprayed) suburban hemlocks?
My hunting partner and I have been working a hemlock stand known locally as the circle. It's surrounded by swamp and is a busy social area for a large population of deer. It is one of those wonderful places in the woods...just beautiful.
