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.

Back from a very pleasant few days in England. Enjoyed very much seeing some family and am slightly rounder in the waist thanks to some excellent home cooking. Saw "Titus Andronicus" at The Globe which was good although Anthony Hopkins's version is still the best.

A little pun that might cheer you up:

Patricia, thanks for that funny.

Hi, Steph.  Are you finished with classes for the semester?  Teaching over the summer?

Joan, enjoy your gardening.  It's a nice day here as well.  The birds are making such a racket!  I guess they have a lot to say today.

Good morning everyone! Another beautiful day and after three days of sporadic downpours of rain, the soil should be easy to pull some weeds. I had a big project yesterday of pruning the tall trees and shrubs. Star Pruners do a fantastic job for me. I don't climb ladders, usually, and Cary has a brain injury that leaves his right hand and leg numb; he has no sense of where his foot is and walks with a gate that looks like he is drunk. He is not; he has neurological damage over which he has no control. 

Had a session with the podiatrist yesterday, treating that horrid hangnail of my right foot. It was not infected but hurt like the dickens. He trims my toenails with a heavy duty clipper that can take on the tough, curled nails. I asked if I could do anything more to get my nails back to normal and he said "NO! It is a function of age, chemo, and fungus." I have to learn to live with it. He is a very nice man, born and raised on a wheat farm, so we have lots to discuss while he is clipping away at those claws of mine. 

I read a little bit of A/N mail this morning, and the temperature is rising so I am headed to the garden. It is now 10:00 AM. See you this afternoon.

That's so cute Patricia!

Carl, I LOVE that song. It always makes me... Happy! :)

Comment by Patricia on June 4, 2014 at 1:06am

That was fun, Carl.

I hope the TP-ers don't get hold of that and ruin it the way the GOPers did with "Don't Worry, Be Happy" some years back...

This isn't new.  I'm just throwing this out here for good measure.
