roseglass asked: Earl and Mara: How are you two handling Ty being deployed? Has Zane come to visit?
Mara: We’ve gone down to see Zane a few times. We’re not as busy as he is. Having Ty gone is hard to think about.
Earl: We went ten years not knowing if he was safe over there. And every day he’s at a dangerous job at home. We trust Ty to be able to take care of himself.
Anonymous asked: Mara, we've heard the story about Ty with his BB gun and your stove. Are there any Deuce stories like that?
When they was little, Deacon was like a little bitty duckling, following along in Ty’s footsteps. Ty’s the who taught him how to walk. When they got a little older, they was so close in age we never knew who to call the instigator. Thing about it was, if trouble happened, Tyler always took the blame.
Anonymous asked: Mrs. Grady, how did your family take the news of Ty's sexuality?
I suppose we’ll have to wait and see.
Anonymous asked: Mara after Ty left for boot camp did any random teenage female come looking to talk to him? Maybe a pregnant one? Can nicks mom answer this too?
Mara: Not that I recall. Why? Is someone out there trying to lay claim to this genetic bucket of crazy?
Nick: My mom doesn’t even fucking talk to me, why would she answer a question from a stranger?
Anonymous asked: Earl & Mara, how old was Ty when he started showing traits of OCD? And did you have to change they way you did things to accomodate him?
Earl: You talking about the fact he can’t let his food mix on a plate?
Mara: He’s always been like that.
Anonymous asked: Mara have you met all of Ty's friends from the military? What are your thoughts on Kelly & Nick?
Nick is the one almost died from the snake bite, right? Sweet boy. Quiet. He’s the only one I ever met.
elyze26 asked: Mara, did the men did a good job with the shed? Is it still holding up? Btw, will you share your apple pie recipe? ;-)
It’s holding up, but I don’t share recipes unless you’re family.
Anonymous asked: Hi, Mara and Earl! Does anybody else in the family know about Ty and Zane other than you both, Chester, and Deuce?
Mara: Oh my, was it still supposed to be a secret?
Anonymous asked: Mara since you are the wife of a Marine you understand deployment and how painful waiting can be. Since Zane's own mother is so horrible are you going to be supportive of Zane? Check up on him? Make sure he is ok?
Of course I will. He’s part of the family now.
Anonymous asked: Mara, It was very nice of you to make Zane cut the wood to make him feel more like part of the family. Did you notice any change in Ty's demeanor after he fell in love? Were you ever worried he was too invested in his work to ever find love?
I never worried about Ty. He’ll do what he’s going to do, no matter what.
