Northbrook Row House

Not only was this place badly decorated, it was also blandly decorated. Out-dated, too. The whole thing felt like the model unit of a planned community that had gone up in 1992.

These stairs were right inside the front door. Seniors: do yourself a favor and please leave now. This is no place for you and your stiff joints and achy-breaky bones and propensity for bad falls.

This yawning chasm waited at the top of the stairs. I think I first saw this set-up about 15 years ago, in the window of one of those cut-rate furniture stores on north Clark Street.

5 pc.
DINETTE
$199.99!

Best quality!
Free financing!

Buy this now for the next time abstract, black, purple and hot-pink rugs are popular.

One thing you can say for this bedroom is that it sure does make you feel sleepy.

Don't bother asking. The pencil cup is NOT 4 sale. You will never possess it. Not at any price.

  2. Oh, snap. But yeah, it did remind me of the White Lodge in Aurora.
