Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 1 hour 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.

Carl, I think if I brought a kitten home from the shelter in a month or so, my husband probably wouldn't throw a fit. lol.  I wish you could have one too!

Hello, everyone!  Happy Wednesday.

It's funny how the movie Jumanji keeps popping up as a favorite.  It is for me, too.  In plain and simple terms, it's a fun movie with great special effects. 

Mindy, it's wonderful that your daughter is excited about being out on her own and returning to school.  Sorry you're going to miss your grandcat, though.  I know you mentioned about only adopting cats from now on.  Is that something you have planned for the near future or further down the road?  Wish I could have one.  [shedding tears]

Good Morning Friends!  I just have a lot of housework to do today.  Still sharing cars, as my son sold his & the one he ordered will not be here until the end of Sept.  Not a big sacrifice!  We move my daughter to her apartment next to her University on Friday.  I will miss her (and my grandcat! lol), but she's not too far away.  She's very excited to be returning to school and finishing.

Spud, thanks for reminding me of Jumanji, a good movie (with Robin) with good (for the time) special effects. That's about as scary of a movie I ever care for.

Joan, I agree with that. Manic is exactly what he was.

PS: I never watched "Mork & Mindy;" as an adult fan of real SF, I thought it was stupid.

However, somewhere around here I have an old VHS tape of a Robin Williams stage concert that I love....not too "blue," and had one hilarious (to me) bit where he acted out what it would be like if an NFL coach and a Broadway choreographer found themselves in each other's professions.

When I was in elementary school, the "Talking Mule" movies were a big deal in the theaters. 

My legal first name is Frances (with an "e"), though I've never used it for anything but paying taxes and banking....or when I'm being snarky.   Every school year would begin with a new teacher calling out "Frances Hampton" for the first roll call, and I would have to correct her....while the entire class broke up, brayed, made me feel rotten..

I never, ever had any desire to see those ghastly movies.

Felaine (Frances Elaine)

Carl, I didn't like his standup routines either; they were too manic for my taste. His movies, on the other hand, stood out as masterpieces in my opinion. As you, I especially liked Dead Poet's Society, Mrs Doubtfire, as well as Good Will Hunting, Popeye, and Awakenings.

Yeah, it was Patch Adams, Patricia. When Mork & Mindy came out, I insisted on being called Melinda for a long time, even though I'd always been Mindy.

I liked his comedy, except when he got too blue, which he did way too often.
