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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

Ruth...for about 30 years I was a pet-sitter to supplement my meager salary as a bookkeeper, and most of my "clients" were dogs...BIG dogs!  One of the funniest was an AKC champion Weimaraner...sweet, loving, and a practical joker. She liked to be chased around the house, so she'd grab one of my fuzzy socks out of my suitcase, and run around the dining room table with it in her mouth.  She looked so silly. I have photos somewhere.

Then there were the two Cairn terriers who lived on a steep hill with a terraced backyard.  I'd put their dinner dishes on the back porch, and they would carefully carry them up to the first terrace, and dine on the lawn.  I have pictures of that trick, too.

I MUST go through my collection and scan everything so I can share them.

(I did NOT nake any pictures of a huge German shepherd puppy humping a king-size bed....;>P  His name was Thunder Thud.))

My boredom is one of the many fibromyalgia symptoms. I've lost interest in so many things I used to like, so am continually on the search for something different. Unfortunately whatever I find, doesn't stay interesting for long so it's a never-ending cycle. Being somewhat disabled doesn't help matters either, so I have to really look for things that don't involve too much walking, etc. Arthritis has screwed my knitting ability, & that's something I used to do all the time as well as sewing. I used to make almost everything we wore. Now I still make breads, make/print greeting cards on the pc, do video of my husband's train when he has something new going, reading, music, play with the cats, & try different cooking. I get out quite a lot, & now have to use the bus with my scooter down for the winter, so it's not so much now. I try to learn new things on the pc, but Windows has begun to drive me insane so I want out of it & try a Mac, so that's my current research project.

Thanks for the mellow interlude, Loren.

I save lots of the pictures here too.

I enjoy everyone's stories here.

Patricia, I've been getting bored far more easily the last few days. Maybe it's being in the house so much the last few weeks and then this snow. The news seems less compelling, and Cheezburger seems less amusing. My cats and husband, however, are great as ever.

That sure look like a dog with a 'tude to me, Ruth!  [chuckle!]

Dogs can  be funny too, sk8eycat. This is Tuna the Chiweenie.

It was so bloody cold (for Southern California) that I woke up at 5AM and couldn't go back to sleep.  So I pulled the covers up to my head and read for a couple of hours.  AND for the first time since I adopted Pumpkin, he joined me UNDER the blankies.  And purred and purred and purred.  So comfy-cozy, and he makes a good arm rest.
