    OK, with HSM, Kachoo, Jaded (TinCan), and the multi-named BossHoss (Epona, Wronglead, etc.), it's time we started building a new Porch Annex over here, not to replace the original Porch, but in addition to it. It can be The Porch South (or East, or West, or North - dang, I can't tell direction in cyberspace)

    For those who don't know, The Porch is a creation of the E-search H/J board posters, created long before I started posting there. The Porch belongs to Schoolmarm, one of the original posters there. It is a very large virtual porch with lots of rocking chairs and a cider still in the back. Only the older posters (at least 30 I think, with a few exceptions) are actually allowed to sit on the porch, but there is room for all. Older teens and twenties can sit on the stairs leading to the porch, while the kids are welcome on the lawn, where they take care of the ponies and sheep that roam the property. Becca and Kellybird are two of the original lawn kids, so we allow them to sit on the stairs occasionally.

    The Porch also has arts and crafts and entertainment. There is lots of baling twine knitting and manure scupting. The Chippendales dancers stop by when someone has a birthday. And the still, of course.

    So what do you say, gang, do we have enough baling twine to start building another Porch over here?

    I was a lawn-sitter on E-search, as hunteruler. I'll be the first to say that I want us to keep the porch running at least until I'm admitted to the stairs!

    Oh my goodness, you're right - how could I forget about the duct tape.

    Just a warning to the uninitiated, if we start talking about "the pink pills" it doesn't mean anything!

    Sorry Suz, but did you forget? The chippies haven't been seen nor heard from since we had that big party on the porch for JOH's birthday. http://www.chronofhorse.com/ubb/eek.gif Hmmmm....maybe we need to ask HER where they went...oh JOH!?!

    Awesome idea, Portia - a porch annex(although I'm not sure how I feel about being referred to as one of the "older" posters [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] ). I just hope that all the other COTH residents feel free to come on up 'n set a spell too! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Well, I for one would welcome the chance to set a spell, even if I never got a chance to do so on equisearch. May I join you? And, I'm old, so I was wondering if there was a rocker left for me?

    Well count me in, out of the rain and snow, I'll be the first to admit anything can be built and roofed with a bit of ducttape and manure patching, but someone musta taken too many pink pills when they did that repair, cos I think the annex is cozier, dryer, and has a better view to the lawn, not to mention closer to the bathtub still, and a railing (best to knock them lawnkids off the annex rail with a broom, easier than sweeping em off the porch once in a while).

    This would be umm, let's see--Mandy/Sabra/now Jaime Lynn. Where's BobO? Thought he said he might be over here--has he been changing identities as well, or just lurking? JB found some new purple pills that I like better than the pink especially for the migranes es has been giving me. Hey, I was told that here, I could bring in some KJ Chard, or is that only allowed out behind the shed??? JB better not bring those nasty hamsters over here, or everyone had better get updated on their rabies shots! Hope the Annex is a success!!! I'm terrible with a hammer, but can I make some cookies? Or Zucchini bread even!!!LOLOL ROTFL

    purple pills??? Pass them over, quit hogging!

    Sandstone> I personally invite you to share my top stair with me, hey if we sprawl out enough we'll block the Porchers from getting onto the porch then maybe the 20 year olds can sneak into a rocking chair [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Good plan as long as BossHoss doesn't chase us off with the broom, and believe me a broom is a weapon in her hands!!! lol

    Although I barely squeak in with enough birthdays to get onto the porch, I can rock with the best of you. Just make sure I have a rocker with expandable sides, since I've given up on my youthful svelte figure. Anyone ever taste homemade scrumpy? It's related to cider, only more vile and intoxicating.
