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.

This is Joan's daughter, Laura. Joan asked me to post here to let you know that she's in the hospital, she's fine, and that she is just having her digestive tract rebalanced.


She will be without her computer during her stay there, but I am planning on taking it in with me during visiting hours so that she can catch up with all of you.

I sure hope that I'm posting this message in the right place!

Laura

Another cheezburger that had me in stitches.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on April 15, 2015 at 6:32pm

Thought you'd all get a kick out of this one.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on April 15, 2015 at 4:54pm

Thanks for the wildlife observation. It cheers me that you have such a great window during your recovery.

Keep sending updates. How's the pain? How is your appetite?

I'm so relieved you're feeling up to internet use. I feared you'd be gone for a while.

Get Well, Love!

Say what you want about marketing or self-promotion.  I think the following is JUST ... PLAIN ... NEAT!

Joan, do not follow the rabbit down any holes or eat any mushrooms offered to you by caterpillars.

It is snowing, deer run by my bedroom window each morning.  A white rabbit sits on a stump on occasion.

That's funny Joan. Not funny ha ha but odd. I dreamed about you a couple nights ago. You just made one of those odd appearances in my dream. I'm sure it was because I had been reading a post of yours prior to going to sleep.
Get better soon.
