Hi all! This is such a cool place!

Hey! I got clued into this place by PoetFlint and thought I'd check it out. I already belong to 2 other Joe forums and the best MacGyver forum online (in my very humble opinion), but this was just too good to pass up! So thanks for the invite PoetFlint! If you're on yojoe or joebattlelines you'll recognize me...

I'll try to keep my intro brief...I like to write, as you'll see. I say I "grew up" watching GI Joe and MacGyver, but really I was already 9 or 10 when the first Joe miniseries happened....lol....too old for a girl to say "Mom I want Shipwreck for my birthday," but young enough to justify playing with my brother's Joes, cuz, well, I was spending time with my brother! I was definitely a tomboy. Don't let the fact that I'm female fool ya! Joe, Transformers, MacGyver were all right up my alley. Now I get to share all that with my little boy...I think we're both certified Joejunkies.

Well, on to the GOOD stuff! I'm a born-again Christian, mother of one, wife, and youth leader to about 20 teens who roll their eyes when I talk about MacGyver or GI Joe. I've been saved for about 13 years and having been teaching teens in my church for about 11 years. I wasn't raised in a Chistian home (in the true sense of Christianity) and my family generally thinks I'm a freak, but I'm ok with it. Hearing my son make up and sing his own songs to God is so worth the freakiness!

I'm lookin forward to getting to know you all! If you wanna know more of my story, just ask...it's weird and convoluted and not as terrible as some but enough to remind how much I need Jesus and to equip me for whatever God has called me to. ;)

Off to explore!

Thanks! I probably can't say I was a fan of ATeam or Airwolf...I remember enjoying them back in the day, but I didn't catch them all the time like I did with MacGyver. :) I think Hubby was really into Airwolf tho...I'll have to ask him. ;)

Nice to be here! I actually didn't get into Stargate until just this past year when a friend of mine bought me season 2 and 3 as a gift. Definitely a cool show, but it's different seeing RDA in a shoot-em-up cocky guy role. He's just a super actor in either role, but Mac will always be my fave! If you're a current Macfan, you ought to check out http://www.macgyveronline.org. I've been there for a couple of years or more now. ;)
