Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

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.

Dear friends on "Hang with Friends", you made my day. 

Steph, as always your photos tickle my funny bone when I am in the midst of some unsolvable problem and I lighten up, and the solution comes. 

sk8eycat, your photos make me love what I am doing. Those precious photos i.e. man and dog, and man and cat; I file these in Animal Companions; this is not intended to put either one down or up. 

Chris, I don't like opera and your photos just made it great comedy. Sorry opera fans, I do not intend to brag, or trivialize;  my opinion reveals my failure to appreciate something others find lovely or inspiring.

CHANGE, the only constant

Good afternoon friends!

Love the video Chris and the pics sk8eycat.  I love the man and cat looking at each other!  The dog on the bench is priceless.  Good Morning Friends.

A lot of funny and heartening things. Thanks all. Needed something good to come home to after working the night when the clocks go back here.

Chris, that Florence Jenkins video actually made me enjoy opera for a change.  Not the voice...but the pics!  I've gotta Save that one!

THIS is  the photo I was looking for when I found the one of the man with the adorable kitten:

Love is love...   I'm glad that there are now organizations that try to help homeless people keep their pets.  Or let the animals keep their people.

Lovely picture, Sk8eycat! And have you noticed that the rich sell a surplus, the poor almost always share it.

Comment by sk8eycat on October 28, 2012 at 1:15am

I was Searching for a different photo, but I could NOT resist this one:

"I admire people who barely have anything, but share it nevertheless."

A lovely dog, Melinda! (And I'm also a cat person.)

Wonderful to hear you talk about the quiet life! It's the best, but I don't often mention it in general because people ask stupid questions.

The dark and stormy night made me think of this:

Thanks, Joan! I did find that YouTube link earlier today, but I couldn't turn the volume up loud enough to hear it because my sister was watching a football game at the time.  *ahem!* MUCH more impotrtant...to her.

I'm rereading all my Mercedes Lackey books because I'm so tired of all the political hoo-raw (and I've already sent in my ballot).  I need a dose of fantasy sometimes to clear my mind.

Thanks, again, and thanks to everyone else who have been posting LOL pics.  I love them all!
