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.
Came home Sunday nite. What the Hell is a serendipity error. I couldn't get on . Boy was I pissed off. Now that I'm back the first thing I see is BD's car. I always surmised he was a closet Democrat. Never knew he was a tree hugger thou.
Pajak: You're right it is a newer model.
Marianne; How did you make out with you're car?
Green Mt Punter: No Name still There.
Locke Ober still there.
Union Oyster House still there.
Try Tia's Seafood Retaurant. Let me know how it is.
It's not a "Subaru", it's a manifesto. Nothing screams "Hugs, not bombs" like one of those puppies. And when they get their way, and America is a part of the European Union, they will offer to drive the jihadi who is to behead them to the event in their Subafesto and they will say, "I'm sorry you've found me to be so offensive--it's true I do offend. You're just operating within the context of your reality. You want to kill me. You want to decapitate me with a dull knife, but if you would just let me hug you I'm sure everything would be alright, and we'll be a part of the brother/sisterhood of genderless people."
No. She was into mud trucks and four-wheeling. Five foot three at one hundred and ten pounds soaking wet, she was an even match for a six foot, one hundred and ninety pound man.
I did pursue a liberal sweet liberal young thing in my youth. She rejected my advances and went instead with another liberal lady--a real man hater, just an ugly human being. My unrequited love suffered me no ferrets though. She probably drives Subaru with her bull girlfriend.
jappy ... Got my car back safe and sound. We're poorer but wiser, just in time for Tropical Storm Eduard, which has decided to come onto land at Galveston Bay. Fortunately, Houston is 50 miles inland from the Bay, but we may be having a lot of rain and flooding and electrical outages. Hold your thumbs for us. We've battened down the hatches as much as possible. Eddie is coming onshore tomorrow at 7 or 8 A.M.
You've heard about "frog-strangler" rains. We'll be getting those.
