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.
Judging from the back of the bather in your photo I'd be willing to take up the sport if she'd show me the finer points of personal hygiene. And just to show I'm not an ingrate I'd help her wash her places to reach hard.
Barrister my friend ... gals like baths because of the soak factor. At least they do as they get older and more arthritis-ridden. A hot bath just before bedtime is a wonderfully relaxing time. You can read a little, analyze your day's activities and plan your reparations for the day's mistakes. Very soothing. By the time you're through and have begun to wrinkle up from prolonged soaking, you've decided on your plans for the next day and can sleep comfortably -- or at least have a better shot at it than if you just took a shower.
P.S. Jephnol ... as you indicate, baths offer great possibilities for game playing. And gosh knows, we all need a share of that in these tense times.
Not saying that nobama, hunting, autumn leaves, dogs, chopping wood, psychology God and Dylan are bad.
But would it be too much to ask to convert this blog to one which specializes in bathing young women?
Hah. They can't even put up a little T&A without somebody bitching at the sinfulness of it. The blog favorite is a little hottie in a plaid skirt doing homework. No one pays one bit of attention to the post - they just want to talk about the tart. Then some ass comes in and calls them pedophiles.
