And further down Grand...

A badmansard Captain D's at the corner of Grand and Chouteau (pronounced Show-Tow if you're not local).  I like the Captain D's logo.

Grand and Interstate 70

Love this little mansard which sits quite close to Interstate 70 in North City.  I wish I knew more about it.  Such a breath of fresh air in a neighborhood that's seen better days.

If this week's events leave you looking for a funny story, click on my tumblr for a picture of my husband with a giant tack stuck in his foot.  He stepped on the tack while chasing (barefoot) the dog down the alley.  That's got to be a sanitary item-  giant tack of unknown origin in city alley.   I tried to extricate the tack.  No luck.  It wouldn't budge.  He went to Downtown Urgent Care  where the tack was removed, the wound irrigated and his tetanus shot updated. Downtown Urgent Care gets high recommendations from us.  Convenient, pleasant, good care.

He's also currently taking Cipro and Doxycycline.  This means he will also kill off any Rocky Mountain spotted fever, lyme disease, chlamydia, elaphantiasis, bubonic plague, anthrax and malaria.

Today's badmansard lesson- City of St. Louis alleys are places to wear shoes.

Bad Mansard Flad Snowman

Revisiting a mansard on Flad Avenue on the Shaw neighborhood.  Notice the snowman greeting you as if to say, "welcome to a pair of badmansards."

Hoping we are saying goodbye to winter and welcoming some permanent spring weather this weekend.

Soulard a l'orange

A recently updated Soulard mansard.  I like the top mansard.  Not sure about the orange paint around the windows.  After attending Webster schools I am a little orange adverse.  It has to be the exact right color of orange to work for me. This one is just a little too red-orange.  But overall a nice job.
