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.

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

I know what you mean, Melinda. There is a special energy that comes out of this group. You add so much to my enjoyment as do each one of you. 

Comment by booklover on April 10, 2013 at 9:05pm

I have just deleted most of my Facebook "friends."  I want to be on there as little as possible (I do keep in touch with my sister on there, etc.) 

I would just rather be on here instead.  I like you people much better than most "real-life" people!!!  Hugs to all of you!~ Melinda

 Patricia on April 4, 2013 at 12:55pm is a photo of a little girl with haunted eyes that you posted. I was going trough the files to make sure I read everything and ran across it. Making a comment on it, on then page 12, I didn't realize my response would be so far away. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 10, 2013 at 5:26pm

Patricia, those haunted eyes of that little girl. She has some wounds. I hope she has someone who loves her. Whatever caused her pain, I hope they can no longer hurt her and she has some healing memories.

Chis, Dido is gorgeous. I hadn’t thought of the danger of tripping over a b lack cat at night. I hope that doesn’t happen at the top of the stairs.

Your cardboard box sounds like fun, Flying Atheist.

We made a temporary hutch out of a big sturdy cardboard box, which is a good height for tour two big cats to look out of the guest bedroom window. That room was their transition room when we got them over a year ago. The box is still there for them, but now they use the aerobed instead.

Cats seem to know when you hurt them accidentally, and forgive quickly. That’s been our experience when tripping or stepping on a tail.

Our thermometer briefly got up to 88° this afternoon. Meanwhile blizzards from Colorado to South Dakota.

Funny Patricia.
