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.

Yeah, I hear you k.h.ky. We're getting snow here too. Never fully dug out my car from from the last two storms.

Sorry about the wisteria face whip. I fell Monday over a week ago, and my cane pivoted up to smack me on the chin. Still have an ugly bruise. Scratched corneas are painful. A microscopic piece of grit flew up as I crossed a street when I was in my 20's. The cornea actually sagged from the cut, but I was close to an eye hospital. My husband had cornea cuts from a yucca, and from a brand new $20 bill.

What a colorful description of your house, Joan, "moves with seasons and sings as she dances."

That CATastropohic storm gif is scary-creepy.

That's interesting Kathy.  I've never heard of a bandaid contact.  Many years ago, I tried contact lenses for a year, but could never get used to them.  They bothered me the whole year.

Freezing rain started about thirty minutes ago. Snow should be coming anytime now. Sad face.
Comment by k.h. ky on March 4, 2015 at 4:30pm
I pruned wisteria yesterday and managed to have one of the small vines whip back and slap me across the face. And frozen snow fell from the roof and hit me in the face. Sometime during that something scratched my cornea. I didn't know until I woke during the night with my eye tearing and in pain. So managed to beat icesstorm and see the optometrist. Or she saw me. I wasn't seeing to well. She used a 'bandaid contact'. Which is just a nonprescription, extended wear lens to protect my eye from the eyelid rubbing it. Plus drops to be used every three hours and ointment for ten nights after l remove the lens. I've never heard of a bandaid contact. And I'm curious how much the insurance company will be charged for it. I'm sure this treatment isn't used on people who haven't used lenses before. Those of you who have worn them know they take some time to get used to. But once you haveyyour eyelids are tough forever.

That would be one overstuffed, fat cat, Chris.

For once we are being spared all that snow. It's all to the south of us this time. Heard a foot of snow could fall in Kentucky, Kathy. I know you're not used to those amounts. Good news.....maybe you'll have a snow day or two off work.
Comment by Randall Smith on March 4, 2015 at 8:14am

It's Kathy's turn to get hit by the most recent storm. I live 120 miles north of her and got a foot of snow 3 days ago. It should soon melt.

The artifact replica "expose" was on Rachel Maddow's show (MSNBC). I don't know why the other big news outlets didn't report on this. Perhaps they want to keep us outraged.

I hope that cat ate all the nutjobs! Kathy, I hope the winterstorm will be mild.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 3, 2015 at 10:45pm

Kathy, I am sorry to learn of your approaching storm. I lived through an ice storm several years ago and it was not fun. I hope you have candles, batteries, blankets in place. Do you have a fireplace? 

I have a fireplace, but it is not safe to use. This house is over 100 years old and moves with seasons and sings as she dances. I should have had a liner put in, but decided to block the chimney so we can't use it.

Carl l thought you were optimistic on having the surgery so fast but chalked it up to better/more drs and hospitals in your area. Glad you're feeling better during the waiting period.
Comment by k.h. ky on March 3, 2015 at 10:23pm
I thought the graphic was real. Missed the cat completely. But we're under a wintersstorm warning. And it's going to be bad. National news announced ky is going to be hit harder than the rest. Freezing rain followed by a lot of snow and below zero temps. :(
I hope it isn't another ice storm. The snow from two weeks ago just finished melting today!
