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.

Purr-Dee loves to play chase, & will keep grabbing our ankle, our clothes, whatever until we do. He also likes to scare us by hiding around corners then jumping out suddenly.

Kiri is a red dot addict & demands to play, or she gets into trouble until we do.

Soooo funny!!!!!

I love the story of the cat who didn't want to be laughed at, Sk8eycat!  But in some cats the sense of humor is so strong you can hear then giggling aloud. Luna plays Gotcha! when I open the wardrobe; she knows cupboards are forbidden but she loves to run into the wardrobe, out the next second and then laugh at me because she is quicker.

Last generation MauMau loved a chase. First I had to say something like: "I've had enough, get into the pan, then I'll make black soup of you." Then she began to run around with the happiest face you've ever seen on a cat, giggling and calling out:"I'm quicker! You can't get me!"  All ending in big hugs. These are games they thought of themselves and I love it when they play with me.

Oh, Felaine, I like your story and statement that most cats have no sense of humor.  It's interesting!

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 10, 2013 at 6:35pm

Love that funny ad Felaine.

I know exactly why that cat is not speaking to anybody...he/she did some typically funny "cat thing," and got LOL'd at.

My fat black cat (long gone) used to play Ice Hockey in the kitchen; he'd come running when he heard me getting ice out of the freezer, and I'd put a cube on the floor for him to bat around.  One night the whole family came to watch the game, and Dad couldn't help himself...he laughed.  Helplessly.  The Devil immediately stopped playing, went to a corner, sat down with his back to all of us, and started washing his face.  It was like, "I don't know what you idiots are staring at; I've just been sitting here minding my own business."

Most cats have no sense of humor (but I love them anyway.)

Speaking of humor...here's an article about a funny Craig's List ad:

Read the whole thing.  KTHXBAI

Ian, little kids are so matter-of-fact about things. lol.

Felaine, I like all your pictures a lot!

My daughter has a group of friends (both girls and guys) coming in from the Chicago Suburbs tonight.  All sleeping in our basement.  And my daughter has to get up at 9 a.m. to work.  Fun. lol. They want to make a fire outside in our portable outdoor fireplace-thingy (technical term!), but it's COLD.  Hubby is outside mowing and chopping wood after working all day.  I got the makings for S'Mores also.

Hope you all have a good weekend my friends!~ Melinda

I love the hands up tuna pizza cat, and the not speaking to you cat is funny as well.  What do you think that cat is doing Steph? 

Comment by booklover on May 10, 2013 at 2:09pm
