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.

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

America's Best Christian has finally acknowledged that there may be one outfit which has her belief system beat for it's leverage on the government.  No great surprise, it's the NRA and the gun industries.  Betty's a good loser, though.  She's made…Continue

Ian, good to hear from you.  We were a bit worried about your absence in light of the recent storm that passed over Northern Europe.  Glad you're well.  Sounds like you had a nice visit.  My mother makes the most delicious ginger cake that she serves with homemade lemon sauce.

Patricia, I was just thinking about Sk8eycat yesterday.  I'm missing her also.

Hello all. Just checking in. Have been in England for a week visiting family. Very nice indeed. Am a couple of pounds wider now. My sister-in-law bakes a great ginger cake. Been to the theatre in London too; Brecht's "The resistable rise of Arturo Ui". Very funny but also scary. Great production that I can recommend.

Hope you are all well.

Carl, a very special way to start my morning, with friends on Hang with Friends, and this sprightly music with Ethel Merman and Judy Garland.

Thanks, Patricia, for forwarding Mindy's photo. I knew it would be a keeper. Thanks for sharing Mindy.

Great picture steph. 

Mindy, your comment didn't come through on my wall, and I tried using the address used in my email box

I have a hunch it was a keeper.

Wow!  Your husband must be skin and bone.  I thought I was skinny when I was young, but he beat me by a long ways.

I weighed 145 lbs in my 20s, but I was only 5' 9".

He is a good-looking guy.

Congratulations to your husband, Patricia! I hope the two of you have many more happy decades together!

Comment by Tony Carroll on November 2, 2013 at 5:49am

Happy Birthday to your husband, Patricia.
