About the Virtual Front Porch

Since 1995…

Just a few short years ago,
the front porch was the most important "room" of a home.

Here's The Rest of The Story. . .

Men folk would sit around the front porch teaching boys how to whittle whistles out of willow, etc. Often the women folk would join them. They taught young girls how to get the men folk to pick up their dirty socks, etc. Of course, kids were often seen sitting on grown ups laps or off somewhere playing.
Adults discussed religion, Politics, family, money and life in general. They solved the problems of the world. They had fun together. They supported each other. They connected with each other. Kids taught other kids how to whistle, climb trees, catch frogs and how to have fun!

Older folks were able to pass along the wisdom of their age to the younger folk.
Those who knew passed on their knowledge to those less experienced.
Lives were shaped by family values passed along from the front porch meetings.

The gatherings ended with everyone on the front porch enjoying the sunset and homemade peach ice cream. This is the way it was just a few short years ago. Families were close and dependent on each other.

Look how far we have grown apart. If this present course is not changed I'm afraid this very important part of life will be lost. We can't go back to those times. We have to bring that spirit back with today's technology.
