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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

Melinda, I know what you mean. I have always had cats and dogs, and when the kids all grew up and moved away, and our beloved Ebony died, I did not replaced him, I didn't want to take care of anything for a while. Now I just take care of my garden and the neighbor cats come over for live food, even though I try to create a safe environment for the birds. I enjoy watching the cats watching the birds.

Thanks Joan!  Molly is a sweetheart and a lot of work!  My husband says she's our first and last dog. lol.  I love dogs so much, but I'll always be a cat-person!

Bookloover, I like your companion, Molly Mae. She has soft eyes, and your "Download me a fish!" especially the cat's concentration. 

Comment by Steph S. on October 27, 2012 at 9:35am

You have a lovely dog Molly Mae booklover.

Joan - love the Carmen Miranda cat.

Love that computer cat booklover. Now I need to go and find a photo.

So nice to hear from you Grinning Cat - you will continue to be in our thoughts.

Grinning Cat, I'm glad to hear things are going a little better and that being here helps you.  I love this group.

Patricia, that must be so hard for both of you.  I hope being here helps you a little too.  You certainly help to make this group wonderful.

Joan, love the Carmen Miranda cat!

Ruth, glad you like my 'puppy'! :)

Carmen Miranda: "Rebola a Bola" (1941) 

My goodness, does this bring back memories! Before and during WWII, Carmen Miranda paper dolls, coloring books, making her hats out of everything and trying to sing her songs. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 27, 2012 at 1:41am

Patricia, a heart attack at 43! What a shock that must have been. Then a stroke; his poor body certainly presents challenges that you both must face. How are you doing through all this? Is your health strong? 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 26, 2012 at 11:00pm

Love the dog pic, booklover.

Take care of yourself and your Dad too, GrinningCat. Hugs.

Comment by Grinning Cat on October 26, 2012 at 10:54pm

Thanks for all the good thoughts, everyone... dog lovers too! :) My Dad is having ups and downs, and I'm told I should expect that for a while. Patricia, I've heard from others too (including an M.D. friend of the family who knows firsthand) that substantial recovery is often doable, though slow.

And even though I'm not at my own computer to mix together visually rich bits of communication, being part of this community is an important part of taking care of myself!
