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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

Waving back to you, Chris.  Great photo!

Mindy, what an uplifting family report.  Too bad you can't bottle up and market your good vibes!  lol  

Joan, I love reading about your garden-related activities.  It sounds like you are living in a little patch of paradise.

Thanks Spud! :)

Thank you, Joan - but you do make me blush!

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 5, 2014 at 1:04pm

Chris, I have neglected reading my mail until just now. The condition you found your aunt in is all too familiar. Thankfully, she had you to protect her and make sure she is safe and in loving hands. It is not an easy thing you and your husband do, I respect you all the more , even as my fondness and regard for you is at the highest level. Thinking of you, hoping you are healthy and having some fun as well.

I like your daughter's good news Mindy.

Thank you, Joan and Chris! :)
Chris, that's a lovely selfie of you and your aunt! <3

Waving to all of you!

Good morning everyone! This day is a splendid one, cool weather, nice for doing the fall cores, the sky is blue, my tomatoes are ripening nicely and with luck the cover I use will protect them through the first killing frost, which we haven't had yet. Yesterday was herb harvest day. Today is cutting back some of the perennials. I can't remember ever being happier. 

@Randy, your comments delight me, I always look to see what you have to write. Your stories of the loss of your long time dog friend and the acquisition of your new one, Dot, feels real to me, the pain and pleasure available to A/N friends. 

@Chris, I would like to see a selfie you took of you and your aunt. , if that isn't too personal. I think of you often and am so glad you can visit and not have responsibility for her daily care. 

Mindy, Happy day with your daughter home for a day. Dood news of her happiness with both her school and her job. She sounds like she is on a level track now. I wish her great success. A promotion already! She must be GOOD. Of course, she has such a lovely face and I am sure a delightful personality, if she is anything like her mother.  

Good health to all, with happy times, contented feelings, great family and friends to keep you company. 

I'm off to the garden, see you this evening.

Fantastic when things fall just in the right place! Congrats Mindy!

Randy, you don't bore us! Keep posting!  Hi, Chris! My daughter is coming home for the day. :)  My husband is going to grill steaks outside for dinner.  Yesterday my husband and son went with friends for the day and until about 10:30 p.m..  It was a bunch of guys of all ages.  They tailgated at a college football game, etc.  They came home and looked so happy.  Just a fun guy's day.

Then our daughter, who recently got a part-time job as a waitress, while finishing her degree, made a lot of money in tips last night.  She was so excited.  Instant gratification.  She said it turns out she's good at waitressing, and likes it!  They told her that her probationary period was over, and she was hired permanently.  Then they said since she's so good at it, they were going to give her a better section!  Nice compliment!  So it feels good that she finally found a part-time job (we were thinking she wouldn't find anything this semester) that she really likes, doesn't interfere with her classes, is right near her apartment, and makes good money!  Whew!

Have a relaxing Sunday everyone! :)
