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.

You're right Lillie!  Too many people get away with driving like idiots!  I always tell my kids to drive like everyone else is going to do something stupid (drive defensively), and then be pleasantly surprised when people do it right and are polite to you!  Sad it has to be that way!

Happy Friday Friends~ Mindy

I saw something similar to the car trying to pass illegally on the shoulder.  We were traveling on the interstate when traffic became backed up due to construction. This car came sailing down the pull off lane with a cop sailing right behind him. As everyone eventually caught up to him standing by his car looking very foolish stopped by the police, there were all kinds of jeers and catcalls.  Once in a blue moon there is a little justice in the world.

Ruth, that gif is a hoot!  I've never seen anything quite like that happen, but I can't count the number of times I've seen some idiot switching lanes all over the place without even signalling, and cutting in front of big trucks and other dangerous stuff.  BUT when I got to where I was going (I don't drive anymore), there the idiot would be, at the bottom of the off-ramp, waiting for the light to change.

One of the (many) reasons I quit driving was that there are too many people on the road who think they're so bloody important that they don't have to obey the laws, and watch out for other drivers.  They not only drive like that on the freeways, they behave the same way on surface streets...while yakking on their hand-held cell phones.  Too frightening!

"We're here! We don't fear (gods)! Get used to it!"

Update.... the house got stripped of the siding yesterday so it's awll nekkid!!! The windows & back door were done today, the front door will be done tomorrow as it's an all day job with being a complete carpentry change, as well as all the interior moldings around everything. Then Monday they start the new siding, & the faux shutters will be done whenever they arrive at the shop.

I do not have a happy Purr-Dee, but Kiri greets all the workers & generally is a nuisance!

Sorry to hear that you've had chemobrain already after your first treatment, Joan. It's great that your family is so suppoprtive of your communication here. I appreciate all of you.

On a lighter note, I imagine you may have been annoyed once or twice by someone passing you illegally by driving on the shoulder.

Glad to hear from you Joan and to hear that you're chugging along. That's a really good quote that I'm going to steal.

Thanks for your supportive comments, friends. It can be hard to see loved ones suffering on a downhill path. Your understanding makes that easier to bear.
