It was like stepping back into the 1960s, sitting in that cool, refreshing gazebo up North Carolina way. Its vines and emerald green leaves, translucent and bright, revived memories of my Granddad Walker’s front porch. Back in the 1950s and ’60s he didn’t have air conditioning, not even a window unit, but he had something pretty cool, literally and figuratively -- a dense screen of kudzu growing and weaving throughout a lattice of hemp rope.
