Talkin' Front Porch Gibberish Blues
The recent warm weather reminds me of how much I love sitting out in front of the house. Granted, the front of my house only has honorary front porch status, but it has a couple of seats & a place to put your drink, so it's a front porch to me. One of my goals in life is to have one of those traditional concrete (or wood, depending on the style of the house) porches in a city neighborhood with a brick ledge, & a porch swing hanging from the ceiling. Either that or one of those wrap-around front porches in the country looking out over a corn field, also with a porch swing. But for now, I'll have to settle for my non-elevated concrete slab overlooking the various neighbors on the other side of the street with there various & assorted monstrous trucks, motorcycles, lawnmowers & boats in states of disrepair. I'm not complaining, though.
Some great front porch activities include waving at walkers passing by, reading, listening to tunes, having a chat with friends, drinking a cold beer, smoking a cigar, strumming on a guitar or gently blowing on a harmonica or any combinations of these.
Are you a front porch person or a back porch (or deck) person? Granted, there's probably no psychological basis of what types of people belong in which category, & I won't judge you for your decision, but which are you? I'm sure it depends more on your environs, & which has a better view, more space, etc., but I'm sure you can be objective. Me, I'm a front porch person. Guess where I'm heading?
