Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 2 hours ago

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.

Good point about editing, and that actually came up this morning.  The boys are college age roommates and one of them said fuck and then apologized for it.  I smiled and said, "What the fuck are you apologizing for?"  It was cute.

I'm looking forward to seeing them again.

Joan, we are all here rooting for you of course!  I love to hear your descriptions of nature. :)  Dr. Kellie, that's great!  I love it when I meet other Atheists!  I agree with Patricia, it's so nice not to have to edit what comes out of our mouths regarding religion.

No radiation prescribed for my cancer Joan, just the 6 month course of chemo & then the 5 years of Femara tablets daily. They warned me the Femara may aggravate my fibromyalgia, which it did.

Long time, no hear, Dr. Kellie!!! Always glad to meet another atheist as well, a relief in a way, as I don't have to feel I need to watch my p's & q's so to speak.

Greetings to everyone!  I wanted to report that I just met two new darling young (and atheist) clients through an atheist referral.  Absolutely refreshing.  Doesn't happen every day, but I do rejoice when it does.

This crazy roller coaster ride I'm on gives me a terrific day followed by not so terrific ones. Today is my eleventh treatment, only five more to go. By Jove, I will make it. My energy level sits on zero and if I do any task, it takes me three or four days to complete it.

All my blood tests show excellent results, no problems as far as red or white cells, no problems at all with mouth sores as so many people report. A little problem with neuropathy, which doctors monitor and treat aggressively.
I start radiation next week, and I feel a bit anxious about that.

@Patricia, I forgot, did you have radiation? Oh yes, my lack of memory is a problem. That will change when I get through.
I have been impressed with how patient Cary has been with me because he has to deal with the daily ups and downs. He keeps me encouraged and makes me laugh at myself as this weird creature that is temporarily sharing our household.
My great amusement is watching Fat Tail Squirrel build her nest in an Arborvitae in my back yard. She cuts off small branches, carries them to her construction site, causing the whole shrub to shudder, then goes for some grape leaves and does the same thing. We wonder why she doesn't gather Mullein leaves, they are so soft.
The hummingbird group has grown to many birds. They flit so fast I can't count them. Some critter, perhaps a skunk or raccoon plows through the huge Monarda patch knocking them over. The hummers bravely stick their tongues into even those billions of blossoms near the ground. So far visiting Siamese Cat has not bothered them. He is more interested in the bird watering area under the Blue Spruce tree. Nothing grows under the tree and I have it limbed up so I can walk under it to fill the feeders and not hit my bald head. Cat has to cross a wide area to get to the birdbaths. I see no signs Cat has caught any birds ... no feathers, for example. Usually we see signs of a killed bird. The good hunter cat owners moved away this summer. Sadly, so did their children. I have no young children visiting me this summer.

Love all the pictures and videos! :)  Ruth, I don't think I have a picture of Lula in the napkin holder. :(  My kids and I stayed up until past midnight last night playing a board game (Aggravation), and talking, laughing, and watching short, funny YouTube videos on our phones.  They then made a midnight run to Taco Bell. lol.  It was awesome to be with them just enjoying their company.  My husband was sound asleep since he had to be at work early.

Is that your neighbourhood, Carl? It looks good. We almost never see snow that high, if we do it's often gone in a few days.
