Zactly what porches are for, sitting in the shade and enjoying the company. I have fond memories of times like these. Thanks for sharing this photo, Brittany.

Platform runners and gramma in slacks.  All that is missing is pepsi and a bag of crisps.   Oh - what's in the white plastic bag ???  maybe pepsi ???  maybe potato chips ???.  A perfect scene on the porch.  Thank you for sharing this beautiful photo with us.

Great Family Treasure ! .....  Epitome "Francaise" Capture .... Bodies At "Easing" ... Poised Good Tastes ..... Attached Minds To Now and Later ....Gravity Pulls Their Planet Angling Towards A Subject of Focus .........   One Already Knows The Answer ...... Someone is Arriving .......    

I Love the masterful curl(s), of regent experienced sculpturing, adorning Silver-Golden crown of years, her centering-genealogy ground and the home-house that records such sweet epicure memories.

C'est Bon Magnifique .. Great share th'xs .. Brittany-Cost-Balentine

Porches were an essential part of social life.  I remember quite well most every evening people in towns would go for a walk, while those who were unable or too tired to walk, as well as the most loved members of the community, would sit on their porches.

As they walked by people would greet anyone out on their porch (usually every porch was occupied in good weather--and especially hot weatherwink).  If you wished to speak with anyone, you simply walked up and sat on their porch or porch steps and would then gab for as long as you wished. 

Porches were the center of social life and a necessity for belonging to the community. 

Sadly, it ended abruptly when televisions came into homes.
