Among Friends

Rocking chairs welcome guests to the front porch of a rustic log cabin

The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you’ve had. ~ Author Unknown



Pull up a chair and stay awhile!

How are you doing?

Today’s the day, my friends. April first – April Fool’s Day – and the kick-off for the April A-to-Z Challenge!

If you’re dropping by from the blog challenge, welcome to Second Memory! It’s my front porch on the web, a place to settle in and visit, to chat about life and family, memories and history, reading and writing. Or whatever else we end up chatting about. Feel free to poke around a bit and see what I’ve been up to around the place! 

As always, I want to say a big thank you to my faithful friends who drop in to chat and make me smile, who read and share a moment on a regular basis! You have reserved spots on the porch, and I am always so glad to see you here. Just a note that I’m rearranging the chairs a bit during April. While doing the A-to-Z challenge, my usual Monday Moments will be on vacation until May, and to live up to the challenge, I’ll be around the place a bit more! As some of you might remember, I started this challenge last year, only to have to drop out near the end of April when I had my first hand surgery. This year, to the finish we go! I hope you’ll get in on the fun! With more than 1600 participants in the A-to-Z challenge, I hope you have the chance to go explore some of the other blogs participating! There are some great folks signed up, and you can check out all the information, including a list of participants on the main challenge website.

Whether new visitor or returning friend, thanks so much for dropping by! I appreciate you taking time from your day to do so.

  1. Hi – I already feel so welcome! I live in a neighborhood with lots of porches, and we have “porch parties” all the time, when the sun is shining! Stopping by from the A-Z challenge, and I’m glad to have found you. Good luck with the challenge.

    I love the “front porch on the web” metaphor. Lovely!

    I always enjoy the A-Z challenge for the ability to discover other interesting people. And I definitely get a kick out of seeing my comment notification!

    I would love to have a front porch one day…
