Okay, I admit it, I'm a grandma.<br><br>
I have also recently gone vegan without being fanatical...altho that may be on the horizon...lol...<br><br>
Anyway, I am married to a man who looks at a plate of food and says "Is there any meat in there? or "Where's the meat?"<br><br>
I also have two adult overweight daughters who think I am crazy to not eat meat, although my 20 year old grandson has been staying with me and I think I have him converted. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:"><br><br>
ANYWAY....my point is, I keep reading that so many of you have problems with flesh eating parents who just don't get it, and I have kids who just don't get it, so maybe I could adopt some of you and we could be one big happy family of plant eaters.<br><br>

Welcome!<br><br>
I'm 15, and my family is all about hunting and flesh eating. (With the obvious exception of me)

Welcome!!!<br><br><br><br>
I would love to have an adopted vegan grandma. My omni grandma is about as supportive as it gets (she makes me cabbage rolls with ground round even!), but I think the more the merrier!!!!<br><br><br><br>
I'm sure you'll find lots of online family here!!!!

Hi Oatflake! Welcome!<br><br><br><br>
I have adult kids too - one is vegan, one is omni. And a husband and 11 year old son who'll eat anything. I get a lot of comments from the omni kid but since she still lives at home - and I don't cook meat - she has had to adjust. Which means she eats at her boyfriend's house most of the time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

I am not a grandma, but I am old enough to be. They will let you adopt them around here left and right. Some here call me Mom. A Grandma would just finish out the family. Welcome to the family, Sis.

<span style="color:#008000;">It so happens that all of my grandparents have passed away, so I'm in the market for a grandmother. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
I see you also are interested in aquariums- there are a few of us here who are. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"></span>

You may be a grandma, but you're not old enough to be my grandma. You can still adopt me though. You can cook wonderful vegan meals for me and I'll walk your dogs for you. Deal?<br><br><br><br>

People close to you are a lot more open then you think. When i was a meat-eater, i was more ignorant than most, and many people tell me i was the last person they thought would stop eating animals, but my life changed in a matter of 1 second, and i havent looked back. My mother, girlfriend, and sister are all meat-free now. ( ive said that in like 1000 threads already) hahaha. but you are more then welcome to join my family, i need a grandmother that understands me and does not try to hide meat in my food :S

Well, I have converted my grandson..he now calls himself a 'casual vegetarian', meaning mostly, altho he'll still eat a little meat socially.<br><br>
When he finishes reading 'The China Study' and 'Food For a New America' maybe he'll go all the way. He likes to run, and tends to get exercise induced asthma, and has discovered if he lays off the milk and cheese it gets better.<br><br>
So...maybe he'll stop those. I explained to him about the government allowing a certain level of pus cells in milk, and that really got his attention!<br><br>
Besides, he has never been a big meat eater and actually likes the veggie stuff I feed him.<br><br>
Unfortunately, he's moving back home in two weeks and will be at the mercy of his mother's cooking, so I hope he can manage.<br><br>
He will definitely need some support...<br><br>
Anybody know any veggie clubs or groups or just nice vegetarians in the Santa Rosa/Rohnert Park/Cotati area of California??<br><br>
He's twenty, by the way...<br><br>
How 'bout a nice veggie-friendly single girl?<br><br>
He's very tall, very thin, very intelligent...and quite handsome...<br><br>
None of this is grandmotherly prejudice...it's all quite true.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:"><br><br>
Hugs to you all!<br><br>
Sharon (or Grandma to any adoptees <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> )

I could be your adoptive brother if you want. Be warned: I come with Crystal the cat, Hans and Franz the rabbits (Rex and Dutch, respectively), and 5 goldfish (adopted from my friends' koi pond).<br><br><br><br><br><br>
