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

Good Monday Morning Everyone~  My husband had to shovel the driveway this morning.  Yuck!  I want spring!

I think I'll have to take Lula back to the vet for x-rays.  She is definitely not acting sick, just hurt. :(

Love the lion-cat Steph.

Loren, great Simpsons cartoon!

Thanks for the Beckett link, Ruth. I've seen even more in the play the second time.

Perhaps there's a lion in every cat, Steph.

Yes, thanks, Felaine! Grumpy Cat's secret is out now: "It's really just a face ... like right now she looks super grumpy, but I know she's purring. We can hear her." "Yeah, she always looks grumpy, but she's really always sweet."

And Loren, that sign is great! Some people, too, choose to become Catholics, or born-again Christians, or (fill in the blank), having not been indoctrinated raised in those faiths -- much more of a "choice" than who we love, yet most of them have their marriages fully recognized and respected!

Patricia, That is the way I see religion.

sk8eycat, great meme. What the heck, 'll test the limit. I am sure if I get too out of hand, someone will call me on it. I just want to play around with the idea of creating memes for a while. Care to join me?

Thanks for posting that GMA interview, Sk8eycat.  That was very cute.  I have to say, Grumpy Cat sure has beautiful blue eyes!
