Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 1 hour ago

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.

Ruth: Dis iz a popular groop becuz we iz gud 2 eech uvver! (An we can be a liddle silly in heer wifout offending innywun.)

I wanted to show Joan the type of drinking fountain Hairy Jerry has (Pumpkin uses it, too, but he drinks out of the basin. Guess he's not so fussy about running water, or maybe he's afraid of it.)

Go to full-size image

Jerry's fountain has a red basin...I thought he'd be more attracted to it because cats seem to see red better than any other color.  The water spout is adjustable so you can control how much it splashes.

There are hundreds of kitty fountains on the market, but this is the only one I felt was safe for older cats. Oh, and the tube that connects to the spout has charcoal granules in it to filter the water.  same kind of stuff that Brita pitchers use.  Since I use Brita pitchers for our drinking water (our tap water is hard as rocks!), the cats' water is double-filtered.

booklover, your kittehs are lovely.  I especially like the black kitteh.  They are my favorites after the ORNJ ones.  Pumpkin looks like an orange Abysinian, and Hairy Jerry is a biscuit and white Bugs Bunny cat.

I don't know how to Paste my own photographs in here, or I'd do it...

I learned a lot from my mom-in-law, & learned how to become a good friend to a few, as well as volunteering at the library & hospital after my kids were gone. I am also a good neighbor & look after the cats next door whenever they go away which is often.....tough job, ya know.

sk8eycat, I've put this pic of my cats up before, I always find one just quietly sitting on the counter, waiting for a human to turn the water on, LOL.

Joan, that is a beautiful picture of your friend.  I'm glad she was good to herself!

My parents couldn't be bothered 'confronting' anyone (teachers) about me because everything was 'my' fault & I needed to smarten up! My father never even knew what freakin' grade I was in half the time. He was only interested in being the child in the family, & mother was out supporting the household because he couldn't hold a job for long. I was usually left alone & being the oddball moron girl in the neighborhood as well as school, I don't really think I was acceptable to other kid's parents.
