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.

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

sk8eycat, sad to learn you face difficult decisions concerning Hairy Jerry. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 20, 2013 at 8:16am

Changes in the weather, challenges in the political sphere, uncertainty in the economic domain, conflicts in the spiritual sphere, all these and more changes make life chaotic. The good news is that chaos generates the energy needed to make necessary changes. We certainly need to make many changes in life styles and expectations and processes of living. Flexibility and adaptability are key to survival.

Just think of scorpions and sharks; I found fossils of both in the Devonian strata in central Texas. There was a massive blooming of plants, animals and insects during that period and a massive extinction at the end,

Devonian period 419.2–358.9 million years ago.

Thankfully, we do not face the mass movement of tectonic plates. Our challenges are much more economic, political, religious and social. We can do something about these hurdles.

Love to you and Hairy Jerry, Sk8eycat!

Comment by sk8eycat on July 20, 2013 at 12:06am

Hi.  Sorry I haven't been around lately.  I'm facing a difficult decision about what to do about Hairy Jerry, and I feel like I'm standing atop one of those tall, skinny stone needles out in the wilderness, with no way to get down.  I'm just in Brayne Freeze mode.  I've been here so often, but it never gets any easier.

I cherish all of you, and I WILL be back when I get over myself. I promise.

The story about a cat dying in a couch and being found a month later  isn't totally surprising. When Misty died we couldn't find her body for three days, no matter how closely we looked over the entire house. Grinning Cat ultimately found her corpse for us. This also makes me think about pets dying in vehicles during the current heat wave, or animals both domestic and wild being killed  by the Western Wildfires right now. Death is there, but we don't like to dwell on it when nothing can be done.

On a more cheerful note, here in eastern PA we're "enjoying" tropical climate lately. Over the past two weeks we often get short intense showers, quite unlike the rain events I remember over the past 68 years. Instead of starting slowly and tapering off slowly, it's a sudden 5 minute intense deluge that ends abruptly. And a few minutes later the roads are dry again. The showers have been a daily event, too. It's like Jamaica. This surreal pattern has been going on about two weeks. It feels as if Philadelphia has been relocated in the Caribbean.

Maybe I just need a rum punch.

Really Chris? I only typed it and entered it once! Lol. Did anyone else get that? You're not talking about the same picture of "Sheldon" that I put up, right? But someone really did lose a cat in their couch?! How sad, and you're right, didn't anyone have any sense is smell?! Patricia, love the Lab drinking from a straw pic. :)

Thanks for the idea, Flying Atheist! Not that the pc and I look as old as in the picture... ;-D
