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.

Scary ladder photos, Joan.  You couldn't pay me to be in some of those situations.  At least Patricia and her ladder were on terra firma.

I always feel melancholy when I drive through my old neighborhood and past my childhood home.  I have a lot of wonderful memories of growing up there and the many fun families and friends who were so important at the time.  It was my entire world.  But so much has changed.  The neighborhood looks run-down.  People have erected big iron or chain-link fences in front of their homes.  It seems very uninviting and cold.  Exterior re-modelings have brought about an unfamiliar look to the area.  At the end of my street where I attended grammar school, they built a big addition to the school right up to the boundary of the sidewalk, eliminating a big grassy hill where I went sledding in winter as a kid and played among the dandelions in summer.  How fortunate we are to be able to live out our lives with such memories.

Patricia, I like the being inventive part! Your description of the ladder  on your scooter gives me nightmares. So happy you made it home! Safely! I know you are wise how you use ladders!!!!!

Fun With Ladders

Comment by Patricia on March 2, 2014 at 3:00pm

That scooter is just great! I can haul all sorts of things with it, & as I have short legs, I put my feet on the fenders so I have the floor to put things on as well. I have a canvas shopping bag attached to the back for more stuff. I haul 20 lb. bags of flour, potatoes etc., as well as bringing things home for my husband that may be too heavy or awkward for him to carry on his walks. I brought a 6' ladder home for him once & the store clerk said I couldn't do that........I said......''Just watch me". I sat it cross ways on the floor, made sure I kept to the middle of the sidewalk & drove it home. We have something of a reputation in this town for the things we both do & with neither of us driving, we get rather inventive...........

I have never used the feature on my computer, "Search Google for this Image". I found it and the place where the picture was taken.

Felaine, funny video clip; did he play tricks when you were there? 

Patricia, your scooter looks so cool and a handy thing to be able to use. That cat is an amazing animal with a sweet face. 

Mindy, I find it bitter/sweet to go back to former homes of loved ones. Everything changes, yet I can sometimes see remnants of former memories. Your cat and face in the window evokes memories as well. I would be worrying as well with a loved one on wet or icy roads.

WHOA!!!  Now THAT is a PUDDY-CAT, Patricia!

Comment by Patricia on March 2, 2014 at 1:28pm

Resist this face.....c'mon, I dare ya!!!!

Love the cat photo, Mindy.  Beautiful, cute, artistic, introspective.  It's a fantastic picture on several different levels.   

Comment by booklover on March 2, 2014 at 11:26am

Cool Chris!  Me too!  I just wish they'd let me hug them more! lol.  My daughter has been gone for 2 days, and I can tell her cat Lucy really misses her.

Felaine, I found that picture from a Facebook page called Crazy Cat Ladies! :)  I thought it was a really neat photo!
