    A breeze way is a covered area between the home and garage for instance that has no side walls allowing the BREEZE a way to blow thru.
    Not neccessarily between the home and garage but that would be the typical location.
    For some of us though it is the space between our ears, myself included.

    Chris, I don't have your book, but a breeze way is typically an opening between structures that has a roof but no walls. Lets the breeze through.
    Might be a southern thing, especially in the days before A/C.

    Jim L, aka slow fingers,

    I always thought a breezeway was where the Dogs slept when they weren't under the front
    porch.

    Billy,

    That reminds me of that story about the Redneck who's front porch collapsed and killed all 43 dogs.

    Not just a Southern thing. Very common Northeast also.
