It's a "him" mailbox from the 70's….

Oh wait, it's a "her" mailbox from the same era...

Oh wait, just down the street it’s a “her” mailbox from the same era…

This Asymmetrical Old House Daily Cap (2)

I have watched "this old house" deterriorate for years and figured before it falls in on itself, it was worthy of a photograph. It is odd decisions like this: symmetry in everything except the front door and a porch column that makes me wonder about decisions made in its design and construction many years ago.

More than its deteriorating  condition, photographing the peculiar symmetry of “this old house” is what causes me to speculate on the design decisions (or indecisions) made when placing the front door, steps, and a middle porch column.

Now please trust me when I say this…I am not one to get post sloppy party pictures on a social media website, but I do appreciate good spirit(s) when starting a new year…and enjoy sharing those with good friends.

However, our NYE party hosts certainly schooled this guy in fine entertainment...a Vieux Carré cocktail to start the evening. I could get used to this delightful New Orleans classic….

However, our NYE party hosts certainly schooled this guy in fine entertainment…a Vieux Carré cocktail (with a Meyer’s lemon twist and brandied Kansas cherries from my father-in-law’s orchard) to start our spritited evening. I could get used to this delightful New Orleans classic….

Thank you dear Oona and Ettore for a lovely NYE feast and wonderful hospitality. A consumption first: Oysters Rockefeller with a fried oyster on top (and I will spare the 8-minute video post of our hosts making the Banana Foster desert…complete with cinnamon sparkles ignited by rum & brandy ingredients). We truly dined in New Orleans style.
