Excerpt from Chapter Seven – “Bedroom Assignments, or Trading Spaces”:

Dammo merited the best bedroom, the first floor south-facing suite. Since each of the downstairs bedrooms included a private bathroom, the oldest of the group earned this luxury. Jack and Millicent occupied the other front-facing room on the open porch, and Billy and Betty, good sports that they were, landed the downstairs booby prize. The room faced the back screened-in porch and received little sun, earning the name, “The Black Hole of Calcutta.”
