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.

To me one of the worst things is people who throw cigarettes out of cars. They could get me re-thinking my position on capital punishment. Death to all extremists!!!

K.H., I've mentioned it here before, but in the early 1970's when I was an impressionable kid, the whole Ecology and push to recycle made a huge impact on me.  I'm sure you recall the famous image of the native-American with the tear in his eye looking over a landscape of trash.

Carl, littering is a major pet peeve of mine too. I'm always picking up garbage in parking lots and putting it in the trash can. Which is never far away.
What's with these lazy slobs that they can't be bothered to walk three feet instead of throwing garbage on the ground?
I just don't understand some people.

Mindy, I hope moving day goes smoothly for you today. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 15, 2014 at 7:55am

Mindy, does that leave you with no cats?

Comment by booklover on August 15, 2014 at 7:49am

Thanks, Randy!  It's too soon for my husband to get another dog he says.  It will be a pound dog if and when we do though.  I think he could handle a kitten though.  Good happy distraction from our Molly dying, and our daughter and her cat moving out!

I've decided to compromise: I am going to write, but only say I won't be buying their products because of their inane "guiding principles". I won't berate their beliefs. That's never been one of my own g.p's. Thanks for the input.

Mindy, good luck to your daughter--and you! A cat? I love my "pound dog"!

Thanks, Chris! She still has times of depression, but they seem shorter, and she gets over them faster. :)
Comment by Plinius on August 15, 2014 at 1:43am

I'm glad she's doing so well, Mindy!

Comment by booklover on August 14, 2014 at 8:35pm

Thanks, Joan!  I don't think it will hurt my skeleton, but I'll bet my muscles will be sore!  Luckily, my husband, son, daughter, and her best friend will be doing most of the heavy-lifting.  My mom and I will clean and shop for perishables, and make a run to get lunch for everyone.

I will be ECSTATIC when she finishes her Bachelor's Degree.  She already talks about a Master's.  One step at a time!!!!!!
