    Well, how about some pics of your front porch, Bowen? I am really curious. I only catch small glimpses of it from your pics, and you do seem to spend a long part of your day in it.

    Ha ha..Max my porch is nothing special. It’s old and messy with potting stuff sitting around. I had plants everywhere for years but have given most away.
    The only thing special about it is when my dogs on it.
    Here’s the panorama from my throne.

    I lived at my parents‘ house at the countryside from age 7 thru 20 (now I’m 28 yrs old). In the garden, there’s a formerly fully functional motor home standing, which, however, is far beyond its zenith. Flat tires, rain damage inside, some makeshift windows. Right next to it there’s a flat concrete surface that once served as a base for a gasoline tank. This summer, we threw a big garden party, and the caravan and concrete surface came in handy. We attached a tent roof to the caravan, and, Voilá! we had plenty of shadow. I played the role of DJ (to use a completely anti-vintage phraseology), and guess the style I played. Vintage, of course. Modern titles just came out of my MacBook according to my request programme. And if someone requests Katy Perry, I have no option but to comply, for peace’s sake.

    The party began around noon, and the only thing I regret is that I didn’t dress vintage. For the sake of our guests’ happiness, I wore Opposuits’ Flaminguy suit (very funny). My plan was to change to a tuxedo with ivory jacket at 6 p. m., but Alas! I didn’t take the fact into account that every single one of our guests came with little children, so the last guests left at 4 p. m.

    However, the faces of the people when I did some magic tricks with them outweighed everything.

    So that’s the story of what can be rather most be called our “front porch.”
