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.

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

A Prayer for Our Nation (Betty Bowers)

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

Thanks, Joan. The same goes for you.

Ian and Chris--always good stuff. By the way, I'm going through all my 1967 "Travelogue of Europe" stuff, including my time in the Netherlands (does one say "the"?). I rode a bike (age 24). Loved every bit of your country--and the pastries!

The old pictures are very impressive, thanks!

Randy, I enjoy your posts. You report the usual things of life that give heart to your pieces and you contribute insights that help to clarify issues or enrich ideas. Please don't stop or attempt to do less. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on January 7, 2015 at 8:50pm

Thanks, Joan. Recalling that era in my life, I was probably thinking about where I was going to get my next sixpack of Colt 45.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 7, 2015 at 8:41pm

Bertold, a very nice looking young man in your photo, I wonder what your dreams were at that stage of your life? 

Spud, the same impression I have of your young photo, nice looking, and ready to take on the world! 

A completed education, the world just waiting for you to come along and make your mark, and it was your oyster.

Terrible news.

Comment by Plinius on January 7, 2015 at 2:17pm

I knew that running away wouldn't help - my runaway niece was brought to her parents by the police - so I plodded on until I could leave. But I don't think you're a coward; you need to be a hero to struggle on without help!
