I first read Outlander as a young mom over 20 years ago. Okay….I didn’t just read it, I devoured it 5 or 6 times. Every year or so for 20 years, I checked to see if it was being made for the screen. FINALLY two miracles appeared and their names were Ron D. Moore and Maril Davis and they have made all my Outlander dreams come true!

As a solo act, I write this blog designed to make you laugh, think & get through the scary parts! I try to keep it classy and I always try to make you laugh even in the episodes with evil Black Jack Randall.

My husband, Richard, is now hooked on Outlander almost as much as I am.  I write and design the memes and he builds them (sometimes wearing a kilt!!) with me standing behind his chair, breathing down his neck.  We’re on Twitter: @Gracesmom48 (Melissa) and @OutmanderArtist (Richard) We’re on Facebook too, right here:

We create our memes and I write the re-caps with our brilliant, rescue dog, Hickory, by our side. We’ve got two gorgeous grown children (we occasionally tweet their photos because we can’t resist) We live in Texas, but my heart’s in New England. ***Tulach Ard Y’all!


Above is an actual, real-life photo of Richard and me posing near standing stones many years ago before Outlander was even published.  It’s like we were psychic or something!!

    Found your site while looking into Moravians in Outlander. You say that the Moravians & Quakers are your ppl. Why do you say this?

      Because Quakers were peaceful and valued women before it was fashionable to do so. ?

    Put these memes on Instagram! (I’ve deactivated my fb page and I’m hardly on twitter.) Join IG! ? So many Outlander fans on there. Just a request. ?

    Thanks for the great recap. I’ve scared the cats along with my husband a few times reacting to Outlander stuff. I understand completely!

    I’m trying to find your recaps for the first season. I have just now started watching the series and I came across your hilarious site. I laughed so hard at your season one, episode five recap that I’d love to read them all. Is there a way to access archived recaps?

    • Hi Kathy, Thank you so much for laughing at my #Outlander craziness!! The way the blog is set up, you have to click on the #Outlander Recaps heading and then freakin scroll all the way until you get to the Recap and the Season you want to read. I wish there was an easier way, but when I began writing, I didn’t think anyone would ever read it, so I just threw up a blog for giggles. Low and behold a half million people have read my stuff and I still suck at technology!! I obviously need to find a better way. 🙁 Thanks again!!
