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.
That handsome dog on the left is one of God's finest creatures, a German Shorthaired Pointer. Great hunting dogs, marvelous spirits, great with kids, and if you keep them properly exercised, the best indoor friend you will ever have.
Nice retriever on the right, but there's no beating a Shorthair.
