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.
Patina, is this the type of basket of kitten's you had in mind for me? I apoligise to you, for telling you to "shut the Hell up"I am sorry if I offended you.You'll have to forgive my quick tempered Dago ways. If it makes you feel any better you can tell me to "shut the Hell up you stupid Dago bastard" Go ahead and get it off your chest, it won't bother me none.
OOOO for goodness sakes, you sweet things. I checked with my resident naturalist and he assures me that's an OOOpossum -- a pretty pi$$ed opossum. They don't usually emote that much, having very small feral brains.
We have a lot them here in Texas, along with armadillos, and they both become road kill with frightening regularity [we move fast down here in God's country].
Actually, I'm sure you all know that, and y'all are just "carrying each other high" as the Southeren expression goes.
