Re the planets: Mary’s Violet Eyes Made John Stay Up Nights Plenty. (My Mom taught me that one – I guess “Plenty” get dropped now?)
And “HOMES” of course for the Great Lakes!
Thanks for the shout-out. Loved the article on the Spite House; that’s a new one for me. An inspiration, too: the “bedroom” in my tiny house is only 7 feet wide, and it confounds me.
