That said, in a desperate attempt to get out in the woods today for a "hike", I participated in my first "hunting drive". It was pretty much like slowly bushwhacking through the woods, having to pay close attention to where the other drivers are and not getting ahead of the "sweep" of the woods you are trying to make to "kick up" some deer. Sadly, I am admitting that I was actually kinda into it. Except it was more fun if I thought of it as searching for bad guys rather than a poor deer. I also liked learning how to do it from my son, who was carrying a .20 gauge shotgun. I don't have a hunting license but I guess I should carry a gun while I still can. After Tuesday we might have a President who'll make me (and all the bad guys) wait.
P.S. ironically, the NRA called our house tonight wanting my husband to buy a membership. do they know somehow that I was sniffing around their website last night? Anyway, the two wannabe activists in our house shouted out "go Obama" making the woman chuckle a bit on the other end of the phone as my husband tried to graciously get off the phone with her before we further embarrassed him.
