Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Steph, I love the cats in boxes!

Felaine, ha ha I love the throwing lemons!  That would make me feel better sometimes! :)

Ruth, that kitten is precious.  Glad you liked the potted puppy. :)

It's supposed to be 83 here today!  We just had the heat on 2 days ago!  My daughter has a whole day off (except an a.m. Dr. appt) and she can't stop talking about how excited she is to be home and get to do whatever she wants ALL DAY. lol.  My son has his last final and then he's free all day too. Poor hubby still has a usual work day.~Melinda (Mindy ;)

I was lucky to have loving parents without serious dysfunction. I grew up poor but uncomplicated.
Thanks sk8eycat for the Galaxy and DNA song.
Booklover (Melinda or Mindy) the wilted puppy was a hoot.
Cute cats, Steph.
Joan, thanks for keeping me up to date on how you’re doing. Good luck with chemo.
Thanks for Chris Hadonfield’s Space Oddity, Tony.
Ian, your witness guardian link came up “file not found”.
Good night, all.

Hope everyone had a good Monday.

Melinda, my parents weren't perfect; there was a 10-year period when I wanted to shoot my father because he couldn't stop drinking, and (like most alcoholics) thought nobody noticed because he mostly drank straight vodka. Vodka itself may have no odor, but anyone with a nose can smell it on the drinker. But he did sober up when I was almost 21, and I went to work for him, and learned all phases of bookkeeping. Unfortunately, he's consumed all my college savings before he dried out, so....

In the meantime:

Sorry Felaine! That is wonderful to have had parents like that. My father died a few years ago and I didn't bat an eyelash. He left when I was 5, and thought he could have a relationship with my Sister and I when we were adults. He never really tried though. I do miss his parents though! They were wonderful grandparents. I love to think about them right before I drift off to sleep. It's comforting to me.

I think "Space Oddity" has gone "viral;" three friends have sent it to me today.

Re: Mothers Day (and Fathers Day next month)....I'm afraid that all they do for me is remind me of how much I miss both my parents.  I wish they were still here, but young and healthy.  Sept. 8th will be my Dad's 110th birthday; I don't think he would appreciate being alive at that age.
