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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Mmmm.....French Silk Pie.  That's good, too.  I just love pie!!  Period.

One of my favorite comfort food meals at a diner/cafe is a Patty Melt Sandwich with Fries followed by a slice of pie.  Oh, Happy Day!

Lillie, I do make coconut cream occasionally but haven't heard of French silk pie.

Comment by booklover on June 5, 2013 at 4:55pm

Carl!!!  So happy you are back!  Thanks for the kind words, and hugs back to you my friend!~ Mindy

p.s.  I agree about the weather, I think ours has been about the same as yours.  It was rainy here today though.  I don't mind it too much.  Hope you get some time to relax!!

Joan, your soup sounds delicious and I don't have stomach problems.  Patricia, my favorite pies are coconut cream and French Silk.

Believe it or not, one of my male cats was stuck in a chair just like this one.  He and his brother were playing chase and he discovered he could not proceed through these narrow slots.  I was at the dentist so he had to stay stuck for several hours.  I had to dismantle the chair with a crowbar and he made a trip to the vet.  He did lose the use of his back legs for a day or two but thankfully this was only temporary.  I guess they really do need 9 lives.

Special invite, FA, the next time I make cherry or pumpkin pies!!!!

Been SO busy working and have now just caught up with all the past comments.  Beautiful weather here in Chicago.  Bright, sunny and warm days.  Cool evenings.  Perfect. 

Felaine, sorry to hear about your episode.  You're lucky you didn't injure yourself when you passed out.  I'm glad you're OK. 

Mindy, I hope your "down" period ends soon.  Like others in this group, you have a realistic understanding and approach to your condition and I commend you for your "take it as it comes" attitude.....as hard as that may be at times.  Hugs to you.  You have my moral support.  

Joan, sounds like you are progressing nicely as much as you can in your situation.  You are a person of true, unwavering inspiration.

Patricia, my two favorite pies:  cherry and pumpkin.  But you'll never see me turn down a slice of apple!!  Yummy as well. 

Steph, love the photo of your friend and his cat on the swing.  I think maybe the human was enjoying the experience a bit more. 

I hope everyone is doing well.
