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.

Randy, isn't it fun to see the world through the eyes of a child! And with the old tractors the cars and especially the ice cream. Life does not get any sweeter.

Carl, I cooked bacon on my grill skillet and then put sliced zucchini on the grill after pouring off the excess grease. I cooked them slowly until they had nice grill marks on both sides and the skin was tender. I toasted some garlic bread after the zucchini, and made a zucchini sandwich out of one of the slices and just ate the others by themselves. Lightly salted, nicely browned, with a sprinkling of pine nuts , they make a very tasty vegetable. 

Your  tuxedo T-shirt has real class. 

I agree, summer is moving far too fast. We had a few days in the high 90s but that was in July. Usually August is our miserable month for a long stretch of near 100 degrees. We only had one day over 100 degrees so far. The summer isn't over yet and so I am prepared for some surprises.

Randy, your news of your family's crop being washed away or drowned is terrible. Farming families can't take that kind of hit, economically and I imagine it hits their spirits as well. 

Our storms have been bad this summer, but not nearly as bad as your area. Our forecasts for winter will be hard on native plants. We are not used to warm, wet winters. Normal is a long winter with cold weather throughout the entire season. The last couple of years we have warm spells that often causes plants to break dormancy, and then they freeze with the next cold snap. Last year was terrible for that. Lilacs and tulips don't like those growing conditions, nor do the fruit trees and shrubs.

That's terrible about your kids' farm, Randy. :(

That IS a classy tee-shirt, Carl! lol

Yeah, Spud, I wouldn't take up that offer of free hugs under the bridge either! ha ha

I don't wear tee-shirts with sayings, but I did have a sweatshirt a long time ago that said, "So many books, so little time."  I liked that one.

But I would pass-up this offer of a hug:

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 24, 2014 at 7:56am

Love these cute huggers:

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 24, 2014 at 7:51am

Sorry about your kids farm Randy.

Comment by Randall Smith on August 24, 2014 at 7:32am

We received 5.5" of rain the other morning--on top of an inch the day before. My poor kids lost a major portion of their organic farm vegetables, either by drowning or completely washed away. Devastating.

I took my grandson to the annual "Summers End Festival" in my small town (Rossville) of 1700. Parade (mostly old tractors), car show and booths, and famous Lions Club ice cream. We had fun. And no rain. Fireworks lit up the sky as a closer to the day.

I enjoyed reading the comments from you all the past 24 hours. And I'm a huge fan of The Big Bang Theory!

Ian, back in the 70's I had a tuxedo T-shirt.  Now THAT was classy!

This year is moving along rather quickly.  I was in Walgreen's Saturday night and all the Halloween candy was out and on display already!

This really has been a marvelous summer weather-wise.  Much cooler and less humid than normal.  Perfect summer days.  Of course I think we deserved a nice summer after the extraordinarily cold and bitter winter we experienced.  Now I'm seeing news articles predicting the coming winter will be more of the same bitter cold.

Joan, I'm curious what your zucchini dinner consisted of.  Zucchini can be so adaptable for a wide variety of culinary uses.
