CLEVELAND - Ralphie Parker and Brian Jones know what it's like to want something.

For Ralphie, the object of desire was an official Red Ryder, carbine-action, 200-shot, range model air rifle. (Go ahead, say it, "You'll shoot your eye out, kid.") For Jones, the gotta-have-it item was Ralphie's house — the one in "A Christmas Story," the quirky film that's found a niche alongside holiday classics like "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Miracle on 34th Street."

Jones has restored the three-story, wood-frame house to its appearance in the movie and will open it for tours beginning Saturday. His hope is that it will become a tourist stop alongside the city's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and other destinations.

We bought my dad one of those lamps a few years ago. His house got about 6 feet of water in Katrina and the table the leg lamp was sitting on just floated around the house and settled back down when the water left. It was one of those amazing things. A piano in the lving room was sitting upside down, but the leg lamp was fine. His house is rebuilt, and that lamp is sitting next to his chair.
