@meeePart of that has to do with the way the shows are marketed and presented to the public. I'll go through a list to address what you wrote to make it easier for me: 1. Josh's failed courtship

Thank you! It's very early days right now, but I feel much more confident this time than my last pregnancy.  As for the recaps - really hoping the pregnancy hormones turn me into a raging bitch w

Poor Nathan, even his own courtship thread seems to get disrupted by Lawson... He's taking his chaperoning services to the next level - he's now virtual!Cfe_QmuWQAEYsNt.jpg-large.jpg

I can't seem to quote from one post to another, so I just want to be clear, when I said I wouldn't be surprised if Lawson ended up with his pants down a la Josh Duggar, I didn't mean molestation.  I meant more like the Ashley Madison variety.  Discovering the consensual dark side of Nashville....

Oh I agree.....I suspect that ship has already sailed and Master Bates has had the pleasure of erecting his mast in the company of a lady....or at the very least, in one of those hotel rooms all on his own.

She was at the graduation party and apparently spent her birthday in TN.   Kelly gave her a glowing happy birthday post on IG.  (she posted a video of Ashley singing with Tori's boyfriend playing piano-- she's not a bad singer IMO).

No official pics that I know of but fan accounts might have posted a few.

Can we move on from discussing Lawson's sex life, please? He's still living at home, and this kind of stuff is a problem for his parents.

I doubt he will ever get it but I would love to see Nathan's instagram posts. I just think they will be hilarious.

To be fair, most of what is on FreeJinger is a problem for his parents.  LOL. But, okay, we can stop speculating on Lawson alone in hotel rooms.  Its just the constantly taking over the camera time...

Please stop speculating about Lawson's sex life. From the TOU: Do NOT post speculation concerning the sexual orientation of any minor children or adult children still living in their parental homes. (This includes speculating about the sexual activity of adult children still living in their parental homes.) Thank you.

Say if Nathan and Ashley do end up getting married and having kids, do you think they will be encouraged to embrace Ashley's heritage and upbringing as a city girl or will they be 100% Cowboy?

I hope that Ashley's heritage and background is a part of their family life, but if she moves down to TN (a very likely possibility), then there may well be more influence from the "country" side than the "city" side.

I think Nathan said that Ashley has said she wants to live in the country. Didn't she say something as long as they were within 70 miles of shopping?

For her sake I hope they compromise and live in the outskirts of a small city.

Girl is in for a huge culture shock already, and I hope he takes that into consideration.

Doubt he'd do this, but I can vouch for the fact that there are zero Nashvillian men on Tinder in Nashville.  It's all Tinder Tourists.

Ashley: "...so, Nathan, if I promise to do nothing more than hug you, can we ditch the hyper-vigilant chaperone? I know he's your brother, but he is soooo annoying"

Nathan: "Tell me about it. I've had to live with him all my life"

IIRC, he asked her and she said she'd be willing to (vs. wants to), as long as she wasn't 70 miles away from shopping.

I think they're going to end up as overseas missionaries though.

Lord help us, the last thing this world needs some more young, ignorant fundies who think they are God's gift to the world becoming "missionaries".

So, if you are willing to brave traffic, there is decent outlet shopping in East TN, but IDK if that is what a NYC girl would consider Shopping.

This just makes me laugh so hard.  The heart for it.  She has a heart to be a mother. She has a heart to make dinner. She has a heart to carry around her brother's things.

Not to perpetuate stereotypes about South Carolinians, I wonder if papa bill and mama Jane have a problem with interracial relationships. I'm multi cultured but my grandfather is a black man from North Carolina. He grew up during segregation and moved up north and became a business man. I know even though he would never actually state it, he definitely was apprehensive when my sister bought home a Jewish man.

Again, he never said it, but he definitely was not his warm usual self. I know people like myself hate the expression of someone "being a man from his time". I just wonder if papa bill or mama Jane would be open and happy for Nathan.

Just to add, Kelly's mother adopted two black children, and is from South Carolina as well. I know it is people not locations that make people have prejudices. From what I know papa bill was a judge and mama Jane a nurse, so I'm sure they have always been surrounded by all races.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘
