Garage Saga!

I didn't realize I'd left so many cliff hangers!
Some of you might remember my garage and my lack of a key.

Damn you locked doors...

 Well as fate would have it, I finally HAD to open it. Daniel is deployed and I need to store his car.
Because a snowy hill is a perfect place for a sports car!

 My first run of cinderella-esque key locating did not go so well.
None of these belonged to the garage...
I gave up, maybe the hill would work as a parking place for now? By any rate I quickly forgot my plans due to the overwhelming daily chores, errands, etc.
Yesterday there was a freak snowstorm. Thunder blizzard? At any rate, not the kind of weather you want to walk around in which is exactly what I had to do because both dogs decided they needed a sight seeing tour of the woods. There I am, trudging along the road in a snow suit when I approached my garage. There was a light on inside! I'd never seen it on before, it was completely locked and to my knowledge, no one had been inside in at least a year. Now I had a need to get inside. My curiosity always get the best of me.
Another round of key harvesting found a few more contender. Standing outside in the blistering cold I finally found the key...on Daniel's key chain. Yes he too claimed he had no idea where it was.
Damn you lock!
I'll have to admit that I was a little too excited to get in. I ignored the amazon sized spiders as I threw open the door and found a treasure trove of... stuff.
Into the abyss!
Hey Look! A Vespa? Maybe?
Heck yes!!!
So now that the garage is open, time to clean! I finally had a space cleared so I go back up the hill, try to maneuver the car into the garage while not getting hit by a passing car when I realize I need just a little bit more room. The issue is, this thing is in the way:
What is this thing??
So after all of that hard work, it doesn't fit. The car is too long! So back up the hill we go, except it's been snowing so it wont actually go back up the hill....
Yep it was one of those days


  1. I don't know what that thing is, but you should sell it on ebay or craigslist.

  2. I sent the pic to a friend of mine and asked... I will let you know, if he knows what it is.

  3. Three headed drill press. That is worth some money to the right buyer.

  4. Three headed drill press. Worth a lot of money to the right buyer...wood or metal craftsman
