    After she saw me in battle, bruised but standing firm on another Forum for Seniors. I am an almost 65(on Feb. 25th) year old woman who is just looking for a place to discuss things of interest with others in a peaceful and respectful way. I feel people should be able to discuss any subject and respect each others opinions on those subjects, but everywhere I've been I have found that not to be the case. I'm hoping here it will be possible.

    I am married with 3 grown and married daughters who have blessed my life with 3 fine son-in-laws and 7 cherished grandchildren. Last year my husband and I were supposed to retire...but after 3 months of being retired my husband who is a social butterfly got himself a part time job so he could have people in his life again. I on the other hand am an introvert who enjoys people more on a one to one basic. I like what I call deep talking and he likes surface conversation. So here I am hoping to share some deep talking with others.

    Welcome to the forum, Babs. You won't be disappointed here. We may not all think alike but we will never be nasty or ugly or bully anyone.

    It's a slightly different set up than most forums but easy to get used to although I still miss some things. :)

    Welcome Babs, enjoy yourself. I like this forum for it's respectful way we like to treat each other. I'm mostly here for the friendship, laughs, food and pretty photos. I don't do intense discussion. I'm happy to see you here!

    It sounds like you have been in battle not of your own choosing before too. Thanks for the encouraging words. :)

    Thank you Ruby. :) I really like all kinds of discussion and all kinds of topics. And there seems to be plenty of both here. I'm looking forward to finding my way around and getting to know everyone. Thanks for the welcome.

    Pssssst! There's cake over at the Pineapple Party! :D @Babs Hunt , welcome! I've not been here very long myself, but I am not exaggerating when I say that I was *immediately* made to feel at home and that I adore these people in just a very short time. I hope it happens that way for you, as well!

    Hi Babs, we are a varied bunch of intellectual goofs. We are respectful to all. This is a peaceful forum, and we are willing to listen and discuss the serious and the silly. I think you'll find a 'home' here.

    I often have wondered how I got "over the hill" when I don't remember ever being on top.

    My turn:D. Welcome @Babs Hunt. That's an unusual name, does it represent anything? Yvonne invited me as well. I don't know why but I'm glad she did. I have enjoyed my stay here and hope that I don't overstay my welcome. Do you like squirrels?

    It is my real name although Babs is the nickname for Barbara...I preferred that nickname rather than then ones my son-in-laws' have bestowed upon me which is Barbie. :) Squirrels, never thought about this?
