I couldn't resist. I snapped these (with a pillar candle in each room) before the whole house --Merriman Park as well as my own real house!-- burst into flames...
Reminds me of eighth grade: World Religion class. I made a model of some Russian Orthodox cathedral. It was pretty impressive -- I remember having to convince my pals that I actually made it and didn't purchase it at --what? --the Russian Orthodox Cathedral Model Store? Whatevs. Anyway, naturally I got an A+ on it but what to do with it afterward? My juvenile delinquent, so-called friends had a fabulous idea: blow it up to smitherings. I was too into peer-pressure issues back in those days to resist so naturally I agreed. So there went my A+ model Russian Orthodox cathedral --up in smoke and a bang, bang, bang of M-80 firecrackers.
