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.

I discovered a brilliant new way to avoid  having xians ring my doorbell in attempt to share the good news with me.  Just now, I was in my kitchen, washing dishes and finding something to eat, when I looked out the large window above my sink.  Two…Continue

When those pix were taken, I was 5' 4" plus skates. They numbered us from shortest to tallest  1 thru 12  Twelve girls each for stage left and stage right..  I was usually a five. Meant I had to skate pretty fast to catch the damn wheel, but not as hard as my roommate who was 4' 11".

The very tallest girls got to wear the really fancy costumes, and just glide around...showgirls.  I'm 5' 2" now.

Wow, sk8eycat, sounds like great fun.

I like to see these photos Sk8ey, thanks! Are you a tall person? At 5 ft. nothing myself, everyone is tall in my eyes.

Good Morning Everyone!  I hope we all have a good week!  It's supposed to be in the 90's here all week, so I'm glad hubby is still on vacation.  We're not doing anything exciting, just stuff around the house and a few errands. :)

I enjoy the song "Singing in the Rain", and very much liked the ice & water skating to it.

I'm a definite morning person and hate DST.

Cheezkake Poze (We hated those hats!) My 19th b'day

Untitled

There were 24 girls and 12 boyz on the ice in a full chorus production number...and 7 or 8 big production numbers in a show...not counting solos and pairs...so we 5 or 6 of us got to sit out at least one number, but we still had to learn them all, in case someone was sick or injured.

The bear costume was part of a "Circus" number...there were 3 of us, and we got to climb over the footlights, walk around in the audience (on rubber-lok mats), hand out lollipops, and sit in guys' laps.  Tee-hee!  The only part of the costume that was at all heavy was the papier mache' head, and it rested on the shoulders, so it wasn't a big deal.  I loved being anonymous.  I embarrassed the *bleep* out of my mother when she came to see us un Salt Lake City, and the company manager sat her in the front row....I hugged her, and yelled, "I wuv yew, Mommy!"  She didn't quite crawl under the seat...

Good morning! I love to read your stories, please tell me more! We have DST here, but no one likes it - they say it saves money on street lighting and other things.

That is beautiful skating - I'm jealous that I never learnt it but my equilibrium was never good: I even don't cycle anymore. But my eyes are good enough for reading and my hands are good for lots of hobbies and odd jobs.

I'm glad you're feeling better, Joan!

Would love to have seen your performances Sk8ey!
