Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 839
Latest Activity: 6 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.

Christ, it sounds like getting to your apartment is a bit like this:

Randy, I'm so glad Dot was found safe and sound! 

I'm with everyone on the privacy thing.  I told my husband that we are either putting up a 6 ft. wooden fence on the side of our house in the backyard, or building a screened-in porch where we can pull shades down on the side with the neighbors next door.  Our backyard is pretty private except on that one side.

No tag or chip, Randall?

I live in the flat land part of Indiana, but S. Ind. is hilly.

Felaine, you mentioned Florida insects--don't forget "no see-ums". They bite and cause one to scratch like crazy.

Mindy, Dot ran off while I was working on my 4 acres of prairie grass on the family farm. I was frantic in trying to find her. After 2 hours, I gave up. Checked my phone messages as soon as I got home, and voila, the "dog pound" had her!! Someone called and they came and got her. Whew. I guess after only 2 weeks, she wasn't as attached to me as I thought. But, she stays home, outdoors all day and night here at home. No fence necessary--yet, actually, never.

I like my privacy also.  That's why I'm trying to find a place in the country that I can afford (and that's warm).

Welcome in the neighborhood, Carl! I won't electrify the fence!

Chris, there's an old saying, "Good fences make good neighbors."  I sure agree with that.  Humans are very territorial.  The picture you posted is a common sight in big cities.  Having a little niche fenced off like the one in your photo is practically like owning sacred ground. 

I like the private and hidden aspect of your apartment door.  That would suit me just fine.

Wonderful view, Felaine! And I mustn't think like a Dutch who'd put up fences and hedges and gates to keep private and common apart. The way we live is quite different! This is not where I live, but close by. My apartment is invisible from the street and you can only reach it through three doors and a lift, after a long search you'll find an unmarked door with a spyhole. Privacy, and I feel comfortable with it. Perhaps I am Dutch...

I love Chicago. All of my relatives on my Mom's side lived there when I was a kid. I always said I'd live there, but life happened. Now it's my daughter who wants to move there. I hope she does in a few years! It's such a neat city!
