I couldn't wait until I got back on Sunday to post.
We went to the A Christmas Story house this evening so I could see it all lit up. After walking almost three miles, in the snow, uphill, we cut down a side street, walked a block, and THERE IT WAS. 3159 W. 11th Street, Cleveland, OH. It was a wonderful moment. (S took a ton of great pictures with his camera but the laptop I borrowed doesn't have a USB port...so you'll have to wait to see those.)
Until then, enjoy this one (poor quality- it was taken with my cell phone):
We'll tour the place tomorrow so I'm hoping for a ton of pictures of the inside. My goal? To get the picture that will serve as my Christmas card this year.
Wish me luck - flash photography is a no-no.
