Hi, I'm new

Post by ljlover2001 » Mon Jan 26, 2009 4:48 am

Hi all
Well, I'm not really all that new, in fact I'm rather old and a bit battered around the edges, but I am new to this group LOL
Briefly, my name is Lynne and I am 55 years old. I have been a fan of Bonanza since I was 6 and so I can't see that changing, after all this time. IMHO it is the best show ever shown on the TV, bar none
I live in the UK, am divorced and the mother of three; Erin, who is 31, Amy, who is 30 and Joseph, who is 20.
I am also Grandma to the most gorgeous (well, in my opinion) little boy, ever. He is called Wilson Joseph and was one, earlier this month.
Little Joe has always been my favourite Cartwright, but the other three are a very close second and my favourite episodes are the ones which involve the whole family
I write fanfic, and have done so for about 9 years. My stories tend to be about the boys when they were younger than we see them on the show, in fact I write Joe from him being a baby until he is about 16 (and obviously the others at corresponding ages)
I have also written a couple of adult stories in which the boys are all married, and a couple that feature Ben and his love life with Marie, and others.
I will be attending the convention in Tahoe, in September, so look forward to meeting up with friends, old and new, as that has been the biggest bonus from being part of the Bonanza family on the web, the fantastic friendships that have been forged
Little Joe forever
Lynne
