"Bring me a nice sandwich. One of the usual. You know the kind I like. No, wait, hold the pastrami. Not really in the mood for that tonight. Come to think of it, no salami either. And hold the Swiss cheese. While we're at it, forget the lettuce and tomato and onion and garlic and mayo. Oh, and what the hell, why not? Just forget the bread. Italian bread is all we've got right now, and that gets stale pretty quick. You know what? Just bring me a jar of hot mustard and a spoon, and then leave me alone. I've got an invasion of Russia to plan. Nothing could possibly go wrong with that, right?" ~ Napoleon Bonaparte, May 5th, 1812
Hey, he could have said that. This house is in the downtown core of Ottawa. It's divided into three units, and has often struck me as odd because of the colour. Personally speaking, it's not a colour that generally works for homes, and in this case was quite off putting for me. Last summer, however, there was a paint job on the trim, rendering it a dark brown that at least seems to offset the yellow.
