I am a: Mom, Wife, Grandma, RN, Constitutionalist, Republican, Conservative, #WalkAway, Bibliophile, Jew, FORMER Libtard, and occasionally foul-mouthed (married to a vet and it rubs off!). I walked away from the liberals a number of years ago -- before the group #WalkAway was ever formed -- and haven't looked back since! I have a quirky sense of humor, and I stand up for what I believe in. I WILL NOT BE SILENCED. STAND UP. SPEAK OUT. BE COUNTED!
