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.
We visited the Sandwich Heritage Museum on Sunday. It's a great place to do nothing. There's no fun there. We had fun, but that's a different matter. We were not subjected to the trials of fun. We brought some along with us and had it.
FromSipp who, I strongly suspect, is like me in not being a Disney World sort of processed-fun person. Or a processed cheese person - except maybe on burgers. We should do a post on processed and packaged fun sometime.
We stopped last year to try to avoid Saturday bridge traffic and to enjoy the gardens. Even with kids we still found plenty to do - they loved the carousel and I loved the gardens. Have meant to go back in the spring for the Dexter rhododendrons.
