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.

Try to bore us, Randall! I like to listen to you. How old your father is! And still some communication too! Good for you.

I visited Aunt today. I took a few selfies of her and me but she can't recognize herself anymore.

(...happy to see me)

Yes, Chris, all my groups have been "quiet" recently. Joan seems pretty active with blogs and groups, but otherwise....

I've been silent here because I'm not a cat person and I can't listen (and respond) to music videos.  Plus, I live a rather dull life and don't wish to bore readers.

There's a country church a half mile (0.3k) down the road. They'll ring a church bell at 9. It's a chilly--near frost--morning. It doesn't look inviting for my Sunday morning walk with the dog. But the sun is out, so we'll see. Going to visit my 96 yr old father this PM. He always seems happy to see him (and visa versa).

A very good imitator, Patricia!

How is everyone? You're all very quiet. I hope you've got something nice to do.

Sunday morning 9 o'clock here - everything still quiet but I can hear some churchbells. I'll write lessons today.

As well as musical instruments.

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 4, 2014 at 2:35pm

On the first few songs that I recognize, that guy is excellent at imitating other singers.

Harvest time continues; there will be basil, thyme, sage, garlic and onions to harvest. My house will be a mess with all that drying laying around. I don’t have a drying machine, I prefer washing and then laying herbs on very clean white towels to dry. Then, I’ll put them in bottles that brought me my pills and capsules of medicine. 

I hope this day is one of joy and special people for each one of you and your pets, too. 

Comment by Plinius on October 2, 2014 at 9:11am

Mindy, I'm just the same as you. Hug for you! I'm glad we're friends!

Comment by Plinius on October 2, 2014 at 8:48am

13 is old - comparable to 75 in people, but some veterans hang on till they're 100. But our cats always die too early. I hope Dale stays with you for a good time.

That story of the two adults - five years ago someone warned us that husband's aunt wasn't doing well; she had Alzheimer's, forgot to eat, and a so called friend was emptying her bank account. She lived 250 Km from here - a long trip by public transport. We got  permission from the court of justice to be her curators/guardians so we could act. Scared away the ´friend´ and moved Aunt to a carehome here. She still doesn't know where she is, but her health is back and she's happy to live among kind people who'll kiss and hug her whenever she wants a kiss. She not quite sure who I am but she loves me. We visit her often, bring her home to see the cats and we do the shopping and the organizing. And her happiness is a big reward!

I don't believe in fate or anything, and it isn't really easy, but it feels all right to do whatever comes your way. I couldn't look in the mirror if I didn't try to help.

This might be a longer answer than you wanted...

I don't know if it's actually true, but I read somewhere once that the average life span of 14 years for cats is tweaked by the fact that so many cats die of non-natural causes like collisions with vehicles or predators. While 14 is the actual average, it's not at all unusual for a cat to live to 19 or 20.
