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.
From a hunting buddy and good Ducks Unlimited supporter:
We went goose hunting with Wild Goose Lodge in Prince Edward Island last week. I wish I had a picture to show you of all the geese we killed (33 over the three days), but it was too dark by the time we finished hunting. The weather was no good for goose hunting on two of the three days we hunted; too warm and no wind. But, we had no complaints as the proprietor, Jim Duggan is a first class guy who goes out of his way to try and get everyone a good hunt. The attached picture is from our last evenings’ banquet – started off with Malpeque Bay oysters (which in your correspondent’s humble opinion, are the best anywhere). One of the hunters brought the wine – a Schramsberg sparkler which went great with the oysters. Then, everyone had a 2.5-3 pound lobster, along with some homemade bread and potato salad. On PEI, they serve their lobster cold, with lemon wedges and of course, butter. We had a mix of whites to go with the lobster, including a chenin blanc from South Africa, which was in honor of your humble correspondent who had visited the winery while in S. Africa on safari several years ago. Dessert was your choice of hot fudge or butterscotch sundae or blueberry pie. One or two of the guests had a sundae and pie . . .
I must confess that I ate on the order of two dozen oysters and if I do so say myself, three lobsters.
An excellent time was had by all ten of us, including two of the folks whom had never been goose hunting.
