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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

That is funny Loren!!! :)
Great reply Patricia!
You are welcome Ruth. I admire what you do, and I learn a lot from you.
My daughter is out with a group of friends, my son is going out to meet a couple of friends, and my husband and I are our usual exciting selves. :)
Have a good night friends!

Our grocery store has a large book department, but I think the signings took place at both. We are a small city, so choices are limited. We had a chuckle when I told her my name is Patricia too.

Thanks for the validation, booklover.

Funny LOLcat, Steph.

What an interesting thing to meet an author, Patricia. The signing was in the grocery store, not the bookstore? I guess book signings are done differently in Cariboo.

Good saying, Loren.

Them: Do you think the dead can live again?
Me: Dr. Frankenstein tried that once. It didn't work out so well...

Comment by Grinning Cat on November 30, 2013 at 6:39pm

Loren, thanks for the laugh! And well said to the evangelist couple, Patricia!

Comment by Patricia on November 30, 2013 at 5:14pm

I had a couple at the door today........."Do you think the dead can live again?"

I said my 2 cents worth......."This is an atheist household & you'd be smart to check into it!"

That Patricia is not me, that's the author Patricia McKay with the hat. The other woman is a clerk at a book store, but that's not where the signing was. The signing was in the grocery store.

Great hat, Patricia.

Well put, Loren.
