 So for those of you who don't know me well...I love politics.  I watch a lot of news.  I am a democrat, through and through.  I wouldn't call myself a feminist, but others might.  However, there are two things that fly in the face of my liberalism, and I'm OK with that.

One is my love of shooting guns.  I don't do it often, and never shoot anything living.  But when I am in the mood, nothing else will scratch that itch better than pulling a trigger.  I own one shotgun, but my dad owns many.  Since he lives in town, he sometimes uses my farm as a shooting range.  This is great for me, since I never have to buy guns or ammo, just join in for the fun of it every now and again. 

Last weekend, I got to shoot an AR15 and it was a most excellent experience!

The second is my love of cooking and serving food to people.  I am all about women's rights....but oddly I am normally happiest in the kitchen.  Nothing gives me more pleasure than cooking for others.  That pecan pie you see above?  It is so good it could make you cry.  Granted, if I was married to someone and was "expected" to provide a daily meal, I would probably get all kinds of irritated about it.  I guess it being my choice to cook when I want to is what makes it enjoyable. 

My point being, labels can be misleading.  There is an exception to every rule.  There are democrats who love guns.  There are republicans who value education.  There may even be smart tea partiers for all I know. 

One more pic for your enjoyment below, the best Halloween costume I've ever worn.  I have to say, I really nailed this one.  I can't stand the woman, but that was one fun  night!  Me as  Sarah Palin:
