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.

Went into the chat room last Friday night, for the first time in a while, and learned that Mequa passed away. I had been good friends with him for a time, but we had differences and stopped talking back in the spring of this year. I knew however,…Continue

This year is moving along rather quickly.  I was in Walgreen's Saturday night and all the Halloween candy was out and on display already!

This really has been a marvelous summer weather-wise.  Much cooler and less humid than normal.  Perfect summer days.  Of course I think we deserved a nice summer after the extraordinarily cold and bitter winter we experienced.  Now I'm seeing news articles predicting the coming winter will be more of the same bitter cold.

Joan, I'm curious what your zucchini dinner consisted of.  Zucchini can be so adaptable for a wide variety of culinary uses.

Thanks Chris, this was the prettiest day I think I have ever spent. I was in the garden by 10 AM, delayed because of answering mail, and I staid out there until 6: 30 PM. Came in and made a wonderful zucchini dinner. Just a beautiful 77 degrees with another cool day tomorrow.

My brother had a T-shirt when his children were younger, saying:

Oh!  I love Group Hugs!  Where did you find that?

I just wanted to thank everyone here for all your support and well wishes you have bestowed upon me recently.  You folks are the best and it means so much to me.

How many people in here are old enough to remember when women (and men) dressed up for air AND rail trips?  Hats, gloves, full skirts, or business suits.  My first air trip to Mexico City was when I was 21...I wore a dress that was too dressy for the office...with crinolines.  I was NOT flying 1st Class, but I did not see anyone on that plane, male or female, in jeans.  That was in 1961.
