I really think the right to bear arms is misunderstood. And that the NRA is just another self-interested lobby group.
I’m pretty liberal.
If I’m left of center, the Beau is practically a Commie. It’s one of the more delightful things about him.
However, if I’m walking in bear country, I’d much rather be doing so with an armed Republican.
I’m sure you understand.
Which is why I felt I’d hit the jackpot yesterday in the car, somewhere in Georgia, when Helen said this: “Listen, don’t want you to be surprised, but I have a pistol in the glove box.”
Helen is currently a registered Republican.
That law of affirmations really DOES work!
We are in Maggie Valley, NC, in her log house atop a mountain. It’s gorgeous.
Riley is VERY uncomfortable with the outdoors here–he is even terrified to sit on the big, third-floor wraparound porch. I can only imagine what he smells.
As we drove in, this oddly dressed woman in a yellow bonnet and apron was walking down the street waving. Helen told me it was “Maggie.” That’s Maggie in the photo. I don’t know who the other people are.
