Come sit on my porch....

Not really my porch, but if it were, I would sure invite you to come sit and visit.

I often make the comment that no one sits on their porches any more.  We are the only people in the neighborhood that sits on our porch.  Now, some of the neighbors do come and sit with us.  I think porch sitting is a lost art.  It is a time to form friendships, to catch up on what is going on in the neighborhood, and a good place to discuss how to do/make things.

When I go home and go visit my brother and his wife, we always sit on her front porch.  And if we can't for some reason, we are wishing we could. 

Right now I am so anxious to have weather warm enough to sit out on our porch and have breakfast.  Yeah, I guess I am complaining of the weather....I guess it is just human  nature.

Speaking of weather, we had rain this morn, and it rained harder than I think I have ever heard it rain for just a little while.  Bit puddles are standing every where.  It has warmed up quite a bit...and supposed to be warm for at least a day or two.
