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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

That's so awesome of you Carl!  My Mom has more money than we do, and she is alone, so I try and do lots of thoughtful things for her that don't cost $$, and, of course, I will take good care of her as she ages.

BTW, Steph, I checked out your photos from the Whopping Crane Fest.  Love the Tri-colored Heron.  Beautiful.  Where was this located?  I know Southern Texas and South Padre Island are big birdwatching places during the winter months.

Sorry, folks, but I just couldn't resist.  Three more gems from "Hair" the musical, movie version........

I totally understand, Melinda.  My parents have done such much for me throughout my life, so it's indeed a pleasure to be able to do the same for them.  And that makes me happy as well.

LOL!!!  I used to work with a girl from Birmingham (Alabama), and she pronounced my "real" name as "Aline."  One day I missed rehearsal, and she was all over the place asking "Where's Aline, where's Aline?"  The choreographer heard her, misunderstood, pointed to the ice, and said, "The. Line. Is. Right. Over. There!"

I sometimes wish reincarnation was real; I'd like to come back as the most spoiled calico EVAH!! (Spayed, of course.)

I meant Felaine! Auto-correct made it Feline!
Comment by booklover on February 25, 2013 at 7:05pm
Feline, I love the story of your talking cat! Carl, so Saturday I took my daughter to Target and paid for everything as I said on here, now today MY mom took me to Target and paid for everything. My Mom has money because her Mother left it to her, and so it goes through the generations, each paying our children's way, no matter how old they are, because it makes us happy. :)

Yes, Felaine, that's a clip from the movie.  I just watched it for the first within this past year.  Great music!!
