Everything is good




* Nice houses. (They would be nicer if they had storm doors on the front.)

* Speaking of nice houses, I was checking out the floor plans for the Sears Roebuck mail order houses. I especially like The Wabash for its simplicity. It's perfect, except a basement would have to be added (the kind you enter from inside the house, as opposed to going outside and lifting up an impossibly heavy door at an equally impossible slant, and then if you're not too exhausted from all that to go down the stairs, some joker from the tavern next door comes along and shuts you in, while howling with laughter, because who can resist an open cellar door). And, I don't know what a dust trap is, but shouldn't all our houses have one? Finally, I hope the outhouse is just as charming as the main house. Thanks to the United States government architects who designed this at considerable cost.

* Our house............
