I want to thank GunDiva for awarding me with the honor of receiving the Liebster Blog Award.

HOW TO ACCEPT THE AWARD: The Liebster Blog Award is a way to recognize blogs who have less than 200 followers.  Liebster is a German word that means beloved and valued.  Here are the rules for accepting the award:

  2. List 11 random facts about yourself. √
  3. Answer the 11 questions given to you. √
  4. Create 11 questions for the bloggers you nominate.  √
  5. Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or fewer followers to nominate and include links to their blogs. (I only have 9 but I'll sort through the ones that I read regularly and torture them too ~ at least the ones I've interacted on)
  6. Go to each blogger's page and let them know you have nominated them.

11 Random Facts about me (boy this is going to be hard).

6.  I currently drive a 2010 Mustang GT (I love my car)

Answering my 11 questions:
  1. What is your passion? To learn as much as I can about shooting, guns and become really good at it
  2. If you could do anything you wanted for the rest of your life, without having to think about money, what would it be? Travel the world, meet new people and learn new things.

  6. Have you ever met anyone famous? Edward K'spel, Kathy Jackson
  7. Who would you like to meet (living or dead, real or fictional) and why? I'll have to ponder this one.
  8. Biggest pet peeve? People who don't know how to use their gas pedal, especially when they are on the on ramp getting onto the highway.
  9. If you won the PowerBall or Lotto and wanted to donate a chunk to a charity, which charity would it be and why?  I would probably have to divy up the chunk and do research on who I would donate to but the first one to come to hand is an animal shelter.
  10. Favorite place you've visited? I've haven't been to too many places, mostly to work but I guess the one that's closest to home is the cemetery in Silver Plume, followed by Fairmont in Denver.

My 11 Bloggers, really only 9 (sorry to torture any of you and don't feel obligated to do this):  I'll have to come back to this one.


  1. Well of course you don't like people who don't understand how the skinny pedal works - you drive a Mustang, for Pete's sake!

    Thanks for playing along. It was fun to read your answers.

    1. It was a pet peeve long before I drove a V8, it bugged me even in the 4 cylinder unless it of course was an obvious vehicle that it going to go slow, ie: Semi's, big trucks, etc. lol

      It was fun, it did leave me pondering what are the interesting things about me now in life, I still have to finish by electing 11 others. I enjoyed reading about you as well, you really are a neat person.

  2. I love my Mustang, too (2011 GT/CS convertible).

    1. Good taste in cars ;) What do you think of the shaping of the back? I was actually going to go for a 2007 since I like the back end on it more but my 2010 was considered high mileage 23K at 1.5 years and was selling for cheaper than the 2007 and had so many cool features to it.
