Another Lunch break with Dex & Yes a photo of him

Our last lunch break was in the desert. This one is in the mountains. I didn't make it to the top of any mountains. I wasn't properly equipped; maybe tomorrow.
I'm still a bit overweight but I think this hiking will take care of that.
It was a bit cool in the morning when I started but it warmed up.

With global warming you might want to speed up that ER timeline if you want to see these vistas.

You may want to get your tiny head looked at by a doctor.

So, you notice that too?

Well, see the highlight I made below. Perhaps his coat also made his body larger. Also, I remember in a previous post Dex said he shaved his head. My head would also be smaller without its full cover of hair.

Westernskies has proved time and time again that conservatives also have a sense of humour.

I don't know why I posted that. It implies that conservatives are usually humorless, which of course is not true.

About accusations, I think of myself as an independent, or at least a moderate. Yet, my wife and I are viewed as "conservatives" by our extended family. Just because we happen to be to their right?

My close friend, a card-carrying Libertarian, has the same experience. He said that in political discussions with his "ultra-liberal" sisters (his word), he often ended up defending G.W. Bush, whom he hated - this last statement I could attest to.

Anyway, whichever your political inclination, it is tough to maintain a sense of humour when one is busy foaming at the mouth. I hated it when it happened to me a few times.

I know exactly what you're talking about, I'm an extreme libertarian some might even label me an anarchist. But I've had many conversations where I end up defending republican views against socialist who think I'm a conservative. The only way to disabuse them of that thought is to then mention how heroin should be legal and that they are bigoted for supporting marriage of gays by the state and opposing polygamous marriages when the state shouldn't be involved in marriage at all.
