Hi, everybody!

I decided, after about a year of lurking, to just go ahead and join since I seem to spend most of my online time here anyway
I've read a lot of different topics: some intrique me, some enlighten me, and some just scare me half to death. BUT I have a great admiration for the minds at work here and their courage in laying bare their thoughts.

I'm an ole married woman with 13 grandkids and 3 great-grandchildren. I'm open-minded, tolerant, and thoughful but I've also been told that I'm opinionated and outspoken. I believe in civility and common courtesy; I'm a staunch supporter of free speech (but I don't think that means a person can spew profanity and abuse).

I'm looking forward to meeting other members and continuing to explore this wonderful site called ATS!!

Hello and welcome

Being opinionated and outspoken is a prerequisite for membership so you passed the first test

We could do with a bit more civility too!

Hope to see you around the forum

Welcome to ATS, Grandma!

From what I discovered so far many here are respecting/open minded of the views of others.

Enjoy your stay & congratulations on the family line!

Thank you SO much for such a warm welcome! I'm sorry to be so slow in responding but, as usual, I've been out among the forums

Sauron, a great BIG thank you for the links. ATS is a bit overwhelming at first, and I've found myself chasing my *cough* backside on a couple of occasions.

Fantom, thanks for the comment on my little ones...they truly keep me young (well, youngish).

I really look forward to reading all of your posts; as soon as I feed this hungry crew, I'll be back to start exploring again.

You've made an old woman feel pretty good about her decision to join this diverse community

Welcome to the nuthouse TNTarheel!

So can I take your nick to mean you're NC girl living in TN world now? LOL. I'm an old VA guy living in FL with my GF and four rescued cats.

It's always a pleasure to welcome a fellow southerner! All I can say is dive in and stick to your guns when it suits you. Glad to have you aboard.

Sorry I don't know what you mean, you haven't misused anything as far as I am aware.
I was just pointing out to you and anyone else that we have off topic forums as well not that you are off topic here, this is your thread you are the topic.
