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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

I have never seen an upright walker before. This looks like an excellent replacement for the walker. My Dad had upper body strength to his last day but his legs gave out on him.

My scooter is not a chair, & I drive it with my hands to get to town & back for my shopping, as others drive their cars. I am not, & never was ''confined''.

I am completely mobile, just not for any distance. Now with a new hip, I am somewhat better, but of course the other hip is becoming a problem, & will likely need replacing in a year or so. The surgeon is keeping track of it.

I also had the lumbar laminectomy several years ago, but of course the arthritis has returned to it & my walking distance is limited by that too.

I function around the house just fine, & have a housekeeper to do the major cleaning, simply because I can't do the heavy stuff.....nor do I want to anymore.

I do my own cooking, laundry, changing sheets, cleaning bathrooms, light vacuuming, damp mopping floors, with a month off when I had my surgery, & Rick took over. I am now back to doing almost everything I did before, along with walking up & down my street, & stairs.

A big scare, Randall!

Paricia, my friend in Spokane had M.S. and was totally quadraplegic. We had to feed her, and of course she couldn't take care of herself. She was confined to that chair. Sadly, she died this past summer. 

I made an assumption that you were confined as she was. Obviously, her motorized chair was not a wheelchair, but I thought of it as one. It looked much as yours. 

I am truly sorry I made assumptions about you that were based on her situation.

Scary episode, Randy. Glad you were able to prevent a really bad situation.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 15, 2017 at 2:13pm

Randall, I'm glad you got the fire doused!

Comment by Patricia on December 15, 2017 at 1:47pm

After our wildfire evacuation last summer, that is frightening! It moves so fast, & creates its own wind.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 15, 2017 at 12:15pm

Interesting.  First time I've seen your back yard, I think.

If the whole field had burnt, was there anything else that could have caught fire?

Comment by Randall Smith on December 15, 2017 at 11:53am

I've added a couple of photos of the scary scene. Be glad you don't live in Indiana. Almost as bad as Alabama.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 15, 2017 at 9:13am

Very scary indeed!
