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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Can you manage waiting longer, Carl?

More delays.  I've been waiting for final word from a cardiologist for clearance concerning upcoming surgery.  Now they want me to have another echo-cardiogram.  I've had three in the last six months.  I'm told they want a more detailed look at the severity of my aortic stenosis.  My consolation is knowing that I will have my kidney transplant operation performed at the leading hospital in the United States for such procedures.  They are being very thorough.

You know the singer, don't you? Ol' Roger Miller--"King of the Road" and many other funny ones (i.e., "You can't roller skate in a buffalo herd--but you can if you've a mind to").

Thanks, Patricia and Joan for starting my day so nicely.

My collection of "Companions" gives me great pleasure to relax and enjoy. I hope the album works that way for you, too. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 9, 2015 at 3:39pm

Patricia I love, love, love this "Friends forever" video. Such sweet and gentle pairs and they seem to enjoy each other.

I've had unseasonably warm weather for the past 2 weeks.  Wouldn't upset me if it keeps-up.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 9, 2015 at 2:06pm

We have broken warm records this past week and lots of rain. Only small patches of snow that was piled up over the winter. The star magnolia broke dormancy. No more mountain ash berries left and the robins are everywhere. Mt Spokane sky parties are all cancelled. 

We had an odd rain the other day. It seems a humungous dust storm blew high into the altitude from Nevada. The winds brought it north to our region and we had a mud rain. I noticed cars at the Cancer Care Northwest parking lot needed finger signs on their windows, "Wash me!"


We undoubtedly will get a late hard frost. We always do. Well, who knows? Climate change deniers, expect some tough ribbing.

Love it, Patricia!

It's only Feb. 9th and freezing, but I saw a flock of robins. I'll be looking for Sandhill Cranes any day now!  At least the snow has melted.

R'amen, Patricia.

Yes, Randall, an interesting subject. One of my cousins did a lot of work on one side of my family and found a half-brother that was a secret and that his Dad wasn't his Dad. Scandal!
