'Say hello to my little friend'

Tante Allyson is conducting election observation in the Katanga province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I always knew she had a little 'bad boy' in her but, but this totally confirms it.
Allyson did explain that she was just wasting time and was invited by a UN security officer. Apparently this is a G36, the weapon of choice for the UN Security force.  Why not an AK47 you ask? "They're associated with terrorists." Right... and the G36 looks like a mere pistol. That's what 2 weeks in Africa will do to an attorney. HA! Either way, I think my mom will feel much better about her security if she's able to look at her daughter in this pic everyday until she's back on US soil.


  1. Allyson Dillinger. Good lookin' hat too. I love that Allyson is wearing a feminine pink blouse for the occasion! Very cute.

  2. I know...all my years of pacifism ruined in one morning at the range.
