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.

Evangelicals Unmasked (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat May 26. 4 Replies

After roughly two months of "shelter-in-place," it would seem that evangelical Christians are champing at the bit to get back to their money-making-machines churches, because empty pews mean empty collection plates, which means no moolah in pastors'…Continue

Good puppy.

I am doing very well, reading, writing, loving our greenhouse more as the weather warms. Dominic learned a few new words, when I softly say, "Excuse me," he gets up out of my pathway and gives me room. When I say, "Gotta go," he jumps up and waits outside the bathroom door until I emerge and we have a bit of brushing and sharing time. He sits at my feet while I am at the computer so that I can wiggle my toes on his back.

Ian, you look DASHING! Thank you for sharing your lovely story and friend with us. Please tell Elna we are happy to see your smiling face and enjoying life with her in it.

Patricia, as usual, a stirling bit of humor for our sequestered era.

The province named the heath regions, Joan. We apparently have one case here now.....groan.

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 22, 2020 at 6:18pm

Plinius, I am sorry to learn of the barriers in which your aunt lives and am grateful for the nurses and staff who tend to her. I do hope they are gentle and kind caregivers. Virtual hugs do little to comfort the demented soul. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 22, 2020 at 6:14pm

Patricia, I like your term, "Interior Health Region," describing you home set in the forest north of me and out forest. You have far fewer towns close by and I do hope this pandemic never reaches your area.

Beautiful phots, Ian.

Yes, we need the jokes now too.

Comment by Ian Mason on May 22, 2020 at 2:18pm

I'm stealing that joke, Patricia. You seem to find the best.

A llot of the time soent with girlfriend Elna plus reading and music. Denmark is slowly opening up. Art galleries and museums opened today, with certain restrictions based on commen sense and hand sanitizer. We did go on a short cycle ride to the coast a couple of days ago for a walk on the beach and something to eat.
