Mosquitos, that is. Lot of friends enjoy summers in Michigan. I've heard it's lovely and the mosquitos are huge. This bad mansard is a brown, multi-level professional building. Thanks to friend Wayne for sending the picture.
The badmansard vacation continues. Of note, I'm not vacationing but I'm featuring mansards from around the country. I did, however, go on the Meramec River float trip.

We floated the upper Meramec this week with John's family. It was 100 degrees but it really was a nice float. Every good float trip starts with a trip to the liquor store. We like cans of Busch and Budweiser. Here's Meramec Package Liquor in Cuba, Missouri- a bad mansard.

It's the month of Août; time for vacation! Let's head east to Worcester, MA. Here's a bad mansard on Millbrook Street. It's intriguing- look at the curved window brackets, porch mansardette and, omg, please rip out the square of dead, overgrown shrubbery. Thanks reader Sean for the the photo.
We'll also head north to Michigan, west to Oregon and south to Louisiana later this month.
Would love a San Francisco bad mansard. Anyone?
