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.

Awww Patricia, your dog Tab was so handsome!!!

Steph and Ruth, love the funny pics! :)

Malemute & Alaskan/Siberian Husky are simialar breeds. Usually the Siberians will have blue eyes, or one blue & one brown eye. Sled dogs are usually these breeds. 

This was Tab, one of our Malemute males no longer with us.....

That dog looks like it's been at the catnip, Ruth. What breed is it, Patricia?

Comment by Patricia on September 4, 2012 at 2:01pm

We used to breed those dogs.....they are so pretty!

Great picture, Tony. I'm reposting it in Wonderism. Thanks

Thanks for the laugh, Steph. Here's my contribution.

Love the graphic Tony!

Beginners' English. Many elderly people didn't get a complete education when young and they want to learn parts they missed - some have got English speaking grandchildren. But there are also younger foreign people in my classes: Cabo Verde, Poland, Colombia, Hungary. Some don't speak Dutch but they want to learn English, and I try to think of ways to teach them. Most of the time we get some progress, and sometimes I just don't know. A few years back there were two Japanese girls in class: they were so horribly polite that they said yes to whatever I asked them. I never knew if my work was any use to them. Most of the time it's a happy riot in my classes - I'm convinced that you can learn best when you're relaxed and have fun.

Chris B, what do you teach the seniors?

Tony, great picture.
