I'm over at the Heroes, Heroines and History blog showing historic images of people on their porch swings, a place where they show the joy and agony of life. Memorable folks captured at this leisure activity, which was also a place of refuge.
These days, many people don't have a porch or veranda to hold a swing, but it seems that the trend may return by the look of the new styles of houses being built today. Good news as I feel it's an integral part of a friendly and caring neighborhood.
