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.

Thanks Chris and Ian.  There are worse things, I know.  Love the cartoon Ian.  Dora does that to me when I'm on my laptop. :)

My Mom felt bad for me, lol, and took me out to lunch.  Then we went grocery shopping and she paid for about half my stuff, plus bought each of my kids a $25 gift card.  Barnes & Noble for my daughter, and Subway for my son. lol.  I have a great Mom. :)

Here's something for possesive cats and their owners, Melinda.

Sounds like one of those periods in life that's an uphill slog, Melinda. Hope things get easier soon.

I first saw Steve Martin perform Atheists Ain't Got No Songs on Austin City Limits a couple of years ago.

I like a lot of it, but some parts just strike me as too critical of atheists.  My guess is that he made it that way so a lot of religious people could laugh at it too and not hate him for it.  Whether that's true or not, It just makes me laugh at some parts and get annoyed at other parts.  And, yes, I know I let too many things bother me.

Melinda, sorry to hear all that. Talk about lemons. I can relate to both. Just take care of yourself and your family. To quote Mick Jagger, 'Time is on Your Side'. :)
