Summary
Philip Gulley argues that the major societal problems of the twenty-first century are a direct result of new homes not having front porches where family and friends can gather and share laughs and stories about the "good old days"
Summary
A nostalgic collection of personal anecdotes reflects on a time when porch-centered lives enabled greater family and community connections, remembering such simple pleasures as lemonade, chirping crickets, and bonding with a pet dog
