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.

OH.....NONONONO......it is ALWAYS the keyboard, or the computer's fault!!!!!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 25, 2014 at 5:26pm

I hate when I do that, and it seems to increase with age. As the (not so) old saying goes, Good grammar has went.

Oops! * their lives, not there

Thanks, Carl! I moved 11 times in my life before we got this house 23 1/2 years ago. My kids spent there entire lives here (not counting college for my daughter.) We'll probably stay here for the rest of our lives. It's a small one floor. I think it will be kind of neat to leave it to our kids, but if they don't want their childhood home, they can sell it!

Your home improvement sounds very nice, MIndy.  There's nothing like a screened-in porch to enjoy in the nice weather.  That, and the roof, are good investments if you want to sell the home later on down the road.  Don't feel bad about taking a loan out for something like that. 

Comment by booklover on August 25, 2014 at 4:25pm
Carl, everyone says my daughter resembles me. Maybe she has jowls to look forward to also! Ha ha. I always say it's better than the alternative! And my kids and pets won't care what I look like!
We took out a loan today, which I hate to do, but we are going to fix- up our paid- for home and pay the loan off befit my husband retires in 4 years. New roof first, but the thing Im most excited for is a screened-in porch off the back of our attached garage. It will have a ceiling-fan and electrical outlets, but best of all an opaque shade to pull all the way down so my favorite fundie neighbors can't see me! Lol.

We all need a laugh & I try to find some everyday.

No doubt who I look like either Carl.....dammit!!!!

Patricia said, "at least I'm still among the breathin'......I hear this is a good thing"

You got a good hearty laugh out of me with that one, Patricia.  That truly was a LOL. 

I just need to look at my 79 year old father to see what I'm going to look like at that age.  People definitely know my dad and I are related when whey see us together.
