Bill’s amazing porch is so packed full of good things. The thing that drew me to his porch was the Katrina era markings on the brickwork, made by the National Guard as they checked the houses on the street after the levees burst.
After noticing his, of course, they popped up everywhere, and I realized that these markings were a badge of honor and survival for those who had lived through the worst devastation of their lifetime.
It is cheerfully clear how much Bill, his family and his dog use their front porch. It is practically bursting with places to sit and eat or drink. Plants and flowers and little pieces of art and Saints team spirit fill the nooks and crannies.
Bill came out to meet me and was proud of his porch and how much it gets used on a daily basis. Well done, Bill!
