St. John Nepomuk

Sometimes I go to mass at St. John Nepomuk. This little mansard was part of the original church property and attached to the school. It's very cheerful.

Mardel avenue in lindenwood neighborhood of st louis. The bottom half is so cottage cute with the flowers and cuteness. The top not so much. It's the butter-face of houses

Nicollet Island, Minneapolis, MN

Pretty mansards and garages on Nicollet Island in the Twin Cities.  Nicollet Island is a tiny neighborhood island in the middle of the Mississippi.  I can't think of any Mississippi River island near St. Louis with houses.  The closest "island" we have here in St. Louis must be Bloody Island which I think is now one of the peers of the Poplar Street Bridge.  And I think Chouteau Island is a green way of some type.  In conclusion, Nicollet Island = super handsome mansards.

Way Homer

Homer Street in St. Paul, MN.

I hear the word Homer and I think of one of my favorite scenes from Raising Arizona.

Glen: Shit, man, think about it! I guess it's what they call a "way homer."
H.I.: Why's that?
Glen: 'Cause you only get it on the way home.
H.I.: I'm already home, Glen.

I'm back home but I have plenty of mansards to share from my twin cities trip.
