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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

Mindy, I hope your digit heals quickly.  How lucky you are to have your birthday on Easter this year.  Will you be baking a cake?  May your batter rise up as well.

Sk8, true (unsubscribe), but then I might miss something!  Same with the monthly newsletter. We'll see.

Great photo, Carl! Ah, memories.

Spot on with that, Mindy. I hope your thumb problem clears up. It's a really useful digit for us humans.

Those were the days, lined up for the walk to church! Who wouldn't have a sour face in those circumstances?

OK, folks.  With Easter coming up, and at the risk of serious personal embarrassment, I thought it would be apropos to post a photo of me from Easter morning back in the early 1970's.  Yes, that's me in all my glory with the too-short pants, white socks and making a sour face.

A Man walked into a Washington D.C. Catholic Church Confessional.

He told the Priest: "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. Last night, I beat the crap out of a congressman.”

The Priest responded: "My son, I'm here to forgive your sins, not discuss your community service!..."

True, but forgetting things has a pleasant side to it.

You're sweet, Mindy!  I try to lean something from whatever happens. Is your thumb beyond the help of a wet bandaid?
