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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Sorry Sk8eycat!  I loved school, but I have never been to a reunion.  I'm the kind of person who, once I haven't seen people in a long time, don't want to go back and see them, so I feel for ya!  You'll probably have a really good time and be glad you went!  Love the cat pic! ~ Melinda

I'm being Shanghaied! 
I got a call this morning from Martha, the classmate I've been doing all the typing and printing for the 55-year reunion this weekend.  She said, "No excuses!  Jacquie [our class president's widow] will pick you up Saturday, and bring you to the Holiday Inn for the dinner, and I will drive you home.  Period. It's been paid for, so shut up and dress up!" Then she hung up before I could protest.
I've never been to one of these things, and I didn't really want to go to this one. I don't know what to do, unless I can manage to break a leg tonight ... or something....
I'll let you know if I survive.

''3D'' painting on the side of one of the businesses in town. This is what's going on around here now, & it's amazing how much less graffiti we're seeing.

I love the Dad Cat asking what time their 'kid' will be home from the movies Steph, lol.  And I've never seen the rainbow cat.  How cute!

Joan, I love the cuddling kitten and parrot.  SO cute.  Looking at all these makes my morning! ~ Melinda

The poor fake unicorn cat does look disgusted...The silly thing looks more like a KKK hat.  (I thought unicorn horns were on the nose...)

Well, I guess not, but the horn is lower on the forehead:
