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.

Oh!  Lotsa good pics tonight!

Steph: at least that kitteh has the good taste to prefer McDonalds over Chick-Fil-A! 

My Hairy Jerry has developed a taste for Schwans oven roasted drumsticks (I have to pinch off little pieces for him to keep him away from my plate.)

PS: I am SO tired of ads for "healthy skinless, boneless white meat" chicken...I've always preferred drums and thighs, MUCH more juice and flavor, and the amount of fat doesn't mean Jack Schidt.

Ai haz spokun!

Great pictures all round. As for the black dog and cat; imagine stepping out of your Tardis and seeing them, Steph.

Comment by Steph S. on August 14, 2012 at 10:41pm

I got you all some dogs and cat pictures.

That's a really funny dog picture Patricia.

Hahahaha! That's great, Patricia. I'm definately going to repost this one. My sister will love it!

sk8eycat, loved the Willie Wonka. Am stealing it. Hey, at least I'm an honest thief.

Ian, great sheep pic. Made me laugh. Haggis? I've tried it. Couldn't pay me to try it again. In fact, I'd pay NOT to ever eat it  again. Yeeech!

Loved it Steph. Your pics always make me smile.

I know most of us love cats, really any animals. So with that in mind, dogs.

I love that! "You ARE taking me to McDonald's!"

Some of the dog and cat pictures are too funny...I'm impressed that you are so clever, Steph! I wish I could come up with such funny captions :)

Ian, I love sheep and feel bad for the one that comes in last :/ No offense but haggis is not very appetizing lol
