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.

Well, folks, it looks like we are going to be a 2-cat family again.  A long-time friend and her husband backed themselves into a corner by signing their home over to a daughter & son-in-law for financial reasons, and to avoid probate, and the "kids moved in and decided that they wanted a couple of dogs.  The dogs are trying to kill the cat (and wrecking the house), and all the no-kill shelters are full.  I could NOT let this couple take their Only Cat to a city "shelter," so Pumpkin is getting a house-mate.

And I need to pick up a few hairballs before they come over.

I'll keep y'all posted.

Thanks Joan!

I received a note from him:

"It's been a tough week, but I'm OK. Hard work, and workplace hassles, more than anything physical.   Sometimes people are....  bad.  But I'm OK.  Most of that is workplace politics, which I hate.  Whatever will happen will happen.  I don't know why people are so obnoxious."

I was wondering how Sentinent is too Melinda.
