Probably my greatest deficiency in life is that I am interested in everything, a true Jack of all Trades. Sadly, there’s not enough time in the days, the weeks, the months, and the years to develop all of my interests, and just as soon as I get started developing an interest in one area, another area comes along and carries my interest away with it.
Architecture is one such interest that I never took time to develop. Fortunately for me, the residential architecture in San Diego is pretty blasé, so there’s no need to develop anything. Most of our houses are stucco, a great material for the Mediterranean climate that we have. However, occasionally, if you keep your eyes open while you’re out and about, you can find houses made out of stucco, some with stucco, a few with stucco, and if you’re really lucky, that rare mansion made out of stucco.
So imagine my surprise when I’m out and about in one of those 1% neighborhoods and find a Victorian mansion with clapboard siding:
I was pretty sure that Scotty had beamed me to somewhere in New England and that I was looking at a house straight out of a Stephen King novel. But no….
Upon recovering from my shock, I realized that I was still in San Diego. Everything else for miles around was stucco, stucco, and stucco.
