Pardon moi

Sorry it's been a while since the last mal mansard.  Here's one on Brentwood Boulevard between Manchester and the Bi-State terminal.I took this picture after a long rain, but that doesn't explain why the back of the roof looks burned.

Where have I been?  My 20 year high school reunion was this past weekend.  Oui!  Vingt ans!  I graduated on 6-7-89 from Webster Groves High School.

As part of the reunion I hosted a party/fundraiser for a slain city police officer Bobby Stanze.  He was shot and killed back in 2000.  He too was a WGHS Class of 1989 graduate.  People paid to come here to the house for free food and beer.  We are giving the money we raised to the Friends of Bob Stanze- read about the foundation here.  

The fundraiser event was a success and the weekend reunion activities were a blast.  I went to high school with a lot of terrific, generous people.  


  1. Mmm. That's a bad one. Have you gotten the house on Brannon (I think) between Southwest and the state hospital? If I remember to, I'll take a shot of it whne I go by next.

  2. this one?

    I probably need to revisit it. It's looking as bad as ever...
