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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

sk8eycat, that is an interesting idea! Anything to calm people during the hub-bub of travelling will be useful.

I like that lizard photo with cats. Funny!

Thanks Joan, yes, it is supposed to rain here all day!  My husband took the day off from work so he could keep bailing water! Ugh.

I'm glad you are feeling better. :)  I often feel fuzzy-brained from all my prescriptions! I need them though.

That's wonderful your Granddaughter is taking care of you! Her rolling around to get where she wanted as a baby is adorable!  I can just picture it. :)

I hope you have a good day!~ Melinda

Melinda, what an awful event! I know you were expecting it and were not caught unaware. But still, the chores to protect and dry out stuff! Is the rain continuing?

I feel wonderful! Just a tiny bit of pain and I have a heck of a time finding words. I finally gave up yesterday and just read my mail and offered just a few simple comments. I feel muzzled by my locked brain. That will pass as soon as the chemicals clear out.

My granddaughter, Laurie, who just passed her home-health care course, is coming over today to remove part of the bandages. Just think, that dear little baby has all grown up and now giving me care. When she was a baby, she didn't crawl at first, she just rolled around until she got to where she wanted to go.
I hope today goes well for you and your husband!

My husband has been up since one a.m. bailing water out of window-wells and moving furniture in the basement, putting fans on to dry off floors, etc.  It has been a deluge!  Supposed to rain all day here again. Ugh!  Carl, are you guys getting poured-on too?

Joan, how are you feeling?  I've been thinking of you.

You're right about the Cheez-Its Grinning Cat, lol.  My cat Lula sleeps with me.  If I ever eat anything in bed, Lula will eat it with me, Cherrios, a cookie, bread, etc.  If I offered it to her outside of the bed, she turns her nose up at it. LOL

I hope that cat likes Cheez-Its (only distantly related to cheezburgers)!

How ya doin' Joan?

I want that kitten!!!!!!

Ian! That's the spirit!
Comment by booklover on April 17, 2013 at 8:28am

Cool thing to participate Ian!

Ruth, could that kitten be any cuter?! Steph, love the stalker cat! lol

Really rainy here today.  We are supposed to get over 6 inches at least in the next few days.  I'm afraid our basement is going to get water in it, even with the sump-pump.  We sit above a water-table or something, I cannot remember what it is called of course!!!
