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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

You are beautiful Joan! Inside and out!  So nice your cousins came to visit and you had a good time.  You are an inspiration. Hugs~ Mindy

While on holiday I finished reading "American Gods" by Niel Gaiman, which I can recommend. A fantasy/allegory that's very gripping. Also contains a joke:

Q. How can we be sure that the CIA wasn't involved in the Kennedy shooting?

A. He's dead.

Joan, Mussolini never had such a cheerful smile. Depending on the weather, you might want to protect your head. I'm starting to thin out a bit and have become aware of this over the past couple of years.

My cousins Ron and Carolyn from western WA, and Paula from northern Idaho came, full of cheer and stories of their winter adventures. Paula is a breast CA survivor and has been my inspiration through all of this process. We had so much to talk about we didn't get to shaving my head. After they left, Cary did the honors and I must say, those tufts of hair laying in the garden looked quite celebratory. 

All in all, it was a very fine day!

Yep! I have a Mussolini head and neck! 

I have to go to the hardware store tomorrow, let's see if anyone notices.

My daughter did not lose the hair at the very back of her head so when she wore her cute little caps there were little wisps of hair sticking out.  When her hair came back in, it was very dark whereas she had always been a blonde.  She decided she liked it short and dark.  My niece who had always had straight hair is now a curly top.  Very strange.

Nice one, Melinda.

Senior Skinhead Joan, I salute you. Hope the birds don't take you for granted and start coming round again next year.
