Welcome to The Porch Swing!

Everyone is welcome to join us on the Porch Swing. A thread where we talk about cooking, books, pets, birthdays, TV, the area where we live, anything that isn't on topic for the regular daylily threads. The subject on the Porch Swing is always changing.

Don't worry about reading all of the thread, just jump right in. We're sure you'll enjoy visiting with us.

We have many threads covering a wide variety of information on the topic of Daylilies. The Daylily Forum has two threads for off topic discussion - Weather In Your Garden for weather related chat and The Porch Swing for all non-daylily messages and chat.

When a new Porch Swing thread is posted, the old Porch Swing threads will be left up for a few days, then periodically deleted, so be sure to copy any items out of the old thread that you want to keep when you see a new thread is up.

* All other off topic threads will be relocated to the appropriate Forum. If you inadvertently post an off topic thread to the forum, please let us know and we'll move it into its proper place, and if we see it before you do, we'll let you know by Tree-mail that we moved the thread.*

45/25 and sunny today. We taught our 11 yr old grandson how to play Rummy Royal (Tripoli) yesterday and he had a ball. Caught on quickly and is very competitive. Granddaughter painted while 4 of us played the game. All were happy but ate too much!!! Back to work today Sighing!

Love all the cartoons Charley Rolling on the floor laughing

It sounds like a fun day, Ginny. We used to play this game with my parents and it could become quite competitive!

Beautiful paper whites, Charley!! I tip my hat to you. Lovey dubby Love the cat in the tree too!! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

So, our washer is headed for the boneyard. It's last load was yesterday. It went nuts during high extraction. It's so rusted out, that pieces of rust were in the tub when I pulled out the clothes. Blinking It really could have at least waited until after the first of the year Glare although, I am glad that the last load was mostly finished!! Hilarious! Hilarious!

It's a good send-off for 2020! New year, new washer!! Kind of ironic, really Whistling Whistling Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
