Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

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.

Happy almost birthday Carl!  50!  My son's birthday is on the 12th.  He'll be 20.  Then the countdown to 21...  He doesn't care about drinking, it's just that his older friends can go places that he can't go!

Carl, 50 is a good year ... for me and for others I care about and love. Cary was born in 1963 and we saw him for the first time when he was 5 days old and brought him home. Five months and 13 days later, my twins were born. All three are 50 years old now and their lives have smoothed out nicely after some bumpy years. 

It feels so good to get through all the stressors of growing up myself, and raising the kids to adulthood. I, too, am getting more progressive as I grow older and can relax more. 

Do you have special plans for the 50th b.d.? May it be full of shared experiences with people you love and who love you, and that there be interesting conversation, delicious foods, and joy all around!

Happy 50th Birthday for the 16th Carl.

Thank you, Chris.  Right now I'm still 49 but my big day is coming up on the 16th.

Happy birthday, Carl! From my 40th birthday the years grew better every year and that development hasn't stopped yet. I hope it's the same for you! Conservative? No, why should we?

Happy 4th of July my friends!  Going out for breakfast with my good friend, who also is an Atheist! :)

Chris, I KNOW I've gotten more liberal as I've aged. Feels good to be progressive. I usually liked Herb Alpert, mostly because his music was upbeat. Haven't heard "What Now My Love" in awhile, but can still feel that beat during all his pauses.

sk8, I've seen two live Buffet shows, but that was 24 years ago. What an entertainer! Remain ever young!
