As I was strolling through an older neighborhood I espied an elderly gentleman tending the roses around his front porch.  The house was a Victorian painted lady and exceedingly attractive.

"Beautiful home!"  I remarked.

"Isn't she just?" the man replied.  "She was built in 1893.  I bought her twenty years ago and spared no expense in restoring her to her halcyon days.  You wouldn't believe how baroque I am."

No doubt, a sight [site?] to see. Love the pun. Yours, that is.

Chuck, I had to walk all the way around the yard and speak to a stranger in order to work that one in.
