Please Don't Eat The Daisies

Have been getting our house ready to put it on the market this past month... I still have mixed feelings about it.

A few stories on the history of the house- This house is the house that author, playwright and songwriter Jean Collins Kerr (1923- 2003) grew up in. Kerr was the author of the acclaimed collection of stories "Please Don't Eat the Daisies", which later became a hit feature film of 1960 starring Doris Day and David Niven, and later also became a sitcom of the same name in the 1960s.
Additionally, Kerr authored the hit play "Mary, Mary", which was one of the longest-running Broadway comedies, with such stars as Debbie Reynolds, running with over 1500 performances. Bridget Jean Collins, by her birthname, was married to longtime New York critic Walter Kerr.
