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.
Anonymous asked: Mara and Earl: Which of your sons is most like you?
Mara: Neither. Thank God.
Earl: Tyler. Deacon is a hell of lot nicer than either of us.
Anonymous asked: Mara - What's the most romantic thing Earl has ever done for Valentine's Day?
He takes me dancing, and he has every year since he came home from Vietnam. But maybe the most romantic thing he did for me was build a big bonfire in the back yard one year, then built a little fort out there for the boys to spend the night in. They thought he did it as a treat for them, but really it just cleared out the house for a few nights.
