Hello,
I am Mersea Ruane-Smith and I live in Norfolk, Va USA. I am 48 yrs into my life, have two sons from the first marriage (both boys are in their twenties), and am now married to my soulmate. We provide a foster home for a No-Kill Dog Rescue in our area and right now we have a little guy, Dylan Webster, who is an afghan/lab/? mix. I am an artist and I have a website to sell my work and greeting cards.

My mother's family is from Ireland and I have been trying to do a family search. I love Ireland, oh so beautiful and mystical. I am hoping that one day I will be able to visit there!

Hope to get to know y'all! (Sorry, I'm from the South, we talk funny! biggrin.gif )

Welcome, Mersea!!!
laugh.gif Don't worry at all, we are used to folks from the South and their way of talking (hi, sisA tongue.gif )...
I hope to get to know you better; jump in here and look around, enjoy and make yourself a home! smile.gif

Mersea, welcome. Trust me I know us northerners have been made fun of too for our accents. But we're all the same on here, so don't worry. Join in and I hope to see you around. biggrin.gif Cheers beer_mug.gif

I'm sure he did mean friendlier, that's why I felt the need to bust his chops. wink.gif

Hello Mersea and ANNHAM! And faìlte to Celtic Radio! I am from Virginia too, but the opposite end (I live in a little town called Wytheville). I am so glad that you ladies found your way to our little corner of the net! I don't thnk you'll find a nicer bunch of people anywhere on (or off!) the net! Probably because of all that Celtic blood in us! tongue.gif Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you from your posts!

And welcome home!
