I watch Carolyn because her radio voice is very soothing, plus, she knows how to present the products very well in terms of giving us complete information.  

 

I can (almost) put up with the Nutsy business, but not with what I interpret as somewhat of a mean streak in Gracie where she continually disses/undercuts Gary Goben, her husband and mother, then invariably follows those comments with "Just kidding!"  There is just something very, oh I don't know, hostile about Carolyn's "jokes", always at the expense of others.

And I tried to return to this forum with a new password but I see they have still stuck me with "Nancy Drew".

 

Okay, well, I'll be leaving (again) now, this time for good, which I'm sure some people will appreciate, lol.

You are not alone in your assessment.

Thank you, shaggygirl.   

 

Gary can always fend for himself -- in fact, he knows how to return the shade, lol, but I do feel sorry for Carolyn's husband and mother who, since they are not on-air, are continually at the mercy of Gracie's passive-aggressive jabs.

@Nancy DrewI have always felt that Carolyn is condescending in the tone of her voice and how she presents herself.  She is a bully to Gary.  Why say the things she does and then say "just kidding".  Why say them in the first place.

 

As far as her liking animals, so do a lot of other people, but I get tired of hearing about it.  And the squirrel has GOT TO GO!!  It is past time and it's ridiculous.  I don't care what the story is behind it, just get rid of it.

People -- just to be clear -- this thread was NOT started by "Nancy Drew 1" -- she is a long-time, veteran poster who has had the misfortune of being linked to my unintentional similiar name which I have been trying, without success, to change.

 

My opinions about Carolyn are my own and not hers!

Thank you, patriot.

 

I wonder if Carolyn feels that by saying "Just kidding", the viewers will think it's all a "schtick", much like the Nutsy/Acorn nonsense.  

 

I think Gracie is too good a host to indulge in this behavior.

I find the use of stuffed animals in presentations very infantile. She might be knowledgeable in what she is selling, but her attitude comes across as very condescending(to me).

I always remember hearing something that goes "A TONGUE HAS NO BONES BUT IT SURE CAN BREAK A HEART"

I really don't buy "just kidding" as the person got out what she or he  wanted to be heard.

Well-----@Nancy Drew I guess people interpret things/people the way they want.  As for me I couldn't disagree more, I think Carolyn is great !   By the way are you really leaving the boards?  I ask because since you posted you were you have had three more post, LOL, so I would guess not.really
