Fall is my favorite time of year, sitting out on the deck Hubba and his bud
built for me several years ago.
Brisk fresh air, no bugs..
When I was a young between age 7 and about 14, we lived in a house with a large porch
in the front.
I loved that porch and have always wanted one..but in a community with zoning laws, the best I could get was a small deck on our rambler.
It starts at the side door by the kitchen and wraps around the front of the house to the front door.
I know, most people build their decks on the back of the house but,
I love it, I designed it and I now have friends and neighbors wishing they had done the same thing.
I read there on good days, and at night I sit out there talking to friends that are no longer here.
The past year I have had to adjust to the time I spend out there.
We have new neighbors, Hispanic from Honduras, good hard working people.
A mother, daughter, her boyfriend and child and several relatives.
They work different shifts so the cars are in and out of the driveway, which is right next to ours.
So I am constantly sliding down into my chair when the cars come around the corner.
I have had to adjust the time that I sit outside at night.
I am a night person,I like being up when everyone else is sleeping.
I long for the good old days, when the neighbors were in bed at 10:00PM.
