tribute to the porch

Humankind knows no finer amenity than the screened porch. It is the temple of family life, and the sacred preserve of the luxurious custom known as “visiting”. Compare it to the barbarity known as the “business lunch”, the hideous conversational burden known as the cocktail party, and the prison that is the formal dinner, the porch visit shines with civility.
