Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Awesome answer to that idiot that said that to you after your Dad died Felaine.  My 'DNA donor' died about a year ago I think.  I hadn't seen him since I was 5.  He never paid child-support, etc.  I was very close with his parents.  He was just a loser with a capital L.  I felt NOTHING when he died.  When my Mom goes, I will be a wreck.  Sad that when my 'father' died, no one mourned him but his 3rd wife, and that was it.  He had 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren that he never met.

Dear Grinning Cat, when my father died (in 1985, right before my 46th birthday), some twit did say "He's in a better place now," and I screamed back, "WELL, I'M NOT!!!"  Idiots.

This is not a comforting thing to say, but I have to tell the truth...I still miss him.

Thanks for all of your support and good thoughts! (And refreshingly, without having to deal with well-meaning theistic talk about a better place, etc.)

Felaine, the hugging cat is perfect!

Ha ha Tony, LOVE the wrapped-up cat!

"I bought this at Macy's Cyber Monday Re-tail Sale!"

(I don't know if this is a PhotoShop-type job or not, and I don't really care...'tis beautiful!)

Flying "A"...OH! YESS!  I always wanted to skate to that, but I was never good enough. (couldn't jump.)

Yes, sk8eycat, Blood, Sweat and Tears is another great group, as well.  So is The Association.  They had a lot of great hits.  In my opinion, Chuck Mangione is the guy who introduced and popularized the flugelhorn for the masses.  He had some big hits in the 70's and 80's playing it.

Litehouse......Canadian.....yeah!!!!

Good morning, Flying A.....Blood, Sweat & Tears has amazing brass, too.  I get chills (of happiness) when I hear the intro to "Spinning Wheel."

The Association (the original group) had a couple of horns, too.  One of the guys played a strange looking thing called a Flugelhorn.
