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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 1. 9 Replies

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

Hmmmm.  It was just a cute picture of a cat holding her kittens Joan!  I don't know how to fix it so that you can see it!

He is pretty much skin & bone now after the last heart episode where he had to get the defibrillator/pacemaker implant. Before that though, he was always well-muscled & very strong, even though broomstick slender. He still walks to town every day to have coffee with his pals, but he takes the bus home now so he doesn't have to climb the hill.

Wow!  Your husband must be skin and bone.  I thought I was skinny when I was young, but he beat me by a long ways.

I weighed 145 lbs in my 20s, but I was only 5' 9".

He is a good-looking guy.

Thanks to all of you!

Now the pesky gardening thing is over with, he can get back to the important stuff.....trains!!!! He has ordered a cattle car that has sound installed so it will moo! Can't wait to hear it.....hahahaha!

Every time he's had to be in hospital, the dieticians immediately put him on practically a starvation diet because of course this is a heart patient so he must be over weight & out of shape!! We have to laugh at that! When we got married, he was 5' 11'', 145 lbs. Now he's 5' 10'', 135 lbs! Gimme a break!

And I think he's pretty cute.

Happy Birthday to your husband Patricia!!!  He's a handsome guy!  I'm sure having the wonderful wife he does contributes greatly to his will to live!  It's awesome you have each other! :)
