Porch Stories 

I am so lucky!!!

Just about every day for an hour or an hour and a half, I get to hang out with this little one.


Jack is almost 8 weeks old.

He’s not so much of a lump anymore. 

Most days, we retreat to the porch.

One of the best places at the old house is the front porch. 

It’s big.

It has ceiling fans, light and the best thing…..

A swing. 

There are a few negatives too.

Mosquitoes in Florida are like a right of passage. Blood sucking little jerks. 

And the swing, as wonderful as it is, makes me motion sick. 

If I look down too much, I’m sick.

If I rock too fast or too slow, I’m sick. 

And don’t even think about reading or looking at my phone. I’m green. 

So we rock. 

And we sing.

He loves high pitch singing so that’s what he gets 

Lots of wheels on the bus and Old Jack Wissinger had a Farm is a fan favorite. His new favorite is the Annie soundtrack from 1982. 

Lots of “the sun will come tomorrow” and “it’s a hard knock life” 

I can only image what the neighbors think.

Soon our porch talks might not be so public but for now who the heck cares if they hear. 

And this week, we got smiles. Smiles for days and we melted…..just a little.


Happy Independence Week friends. 

Be Safe

Eat Much. Ribs are calling my name 

Love those you are with.
