Thank you again for visiting, bless your heart, would you like something to drink?


“Nobody thought much about the front porch when most Americans had them and used them. The great American front porch was just there, open and sociable, an unassigned part of the house that belonged to everyone and no one, a place for family and friends to pass the time.”

Rochlin, The Front Porch, in Home, Sweet Home
