Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 31 minutes ago

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.

Randy, your wrote, "The Ray Rice case is a good example."

I had to look up his name to figure out what you meant. 

February 15, 2014, domestic violence arrest, with an unconscious woman with Ray Rice coming out of an elevator. The article didn't say what caused the unconscious state, but by deduction from he arrest, I assume it was a domestic violence incident. 

March 28, 2014, marriage of Ray Rice and his girlfriend!  

Alarm bells, sirens ringing, whistles blowing. This is not the end of any domestic violence, it is merely the first of many incidents until the girlfriend/wife wakes up from her denial and delusions and realizes she is being treated as an object, a thing, a non-person. I do hope she and Rice get some powerful counseling ... not the mamby pamby kind of feel good therapy, but the deeply rooted exploration of the thinking minds of each one.

Thanks Spud and Chris!  Randy, that's wonderful you're going to the humane society today.  We can mourn the loss of our Mollys together.  I will go to the humane society too.  Not today, but soon, and I will save a cat instead of a dog.

Comment by Randall Smith on July 30, 2014 at 7:22am

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your notes of sympathy. Your words bring tears to my eyes. I am going to the humane society today to see what they have.

Another Molly who leaves an empty place! I'm sorry for your loss!

Comment by Idaho Spud on July 30, 2014 at 5:26am

Mindy and Randy, I'm sorry for your loss.

Our dog Molly is going to be euthanized today. The mobile vet is coming between 2 & 5 p.m.. Last night she was bleeding all over from her mouth, and her jaw is out of alignment from the cancer.My son took the day off because he's too upset to go to work. This is all sad, but not tragic like Randy's Molly dying. My Molly was here for over 11 years, although she has not been the same dog since last December. This was the first dog any of us ever had, and she will be the last one. At least for my husband and I, and probably our daughter. We are sticking with cats from now on. At least I know we gave Molly a wonderful life.

I put this story in a blog, but I get the feeling that today my English is not what it should be. Feel free to correct.

That's horrible, Randall! I do hope Molly didn't suffer long.

Comment by sk8eycat on July 29, 2014 at 1:41pm

Oh, Randy! That is the WORST!  I don't know what else to say, except please adopt another dog....just not right away.  YOU need time to heal a little bit first.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 29, 2014 at 12:40pm

Randy, that's a terrible way to loose a pet.  I'm really sorry to hear your news.  Now what to do?  I would imagine there are a large number of adoptable dogs just waiting for a loving home to keep you company and to continue their role as man's best friend.
