Garages, and the crap therein.

So I live in a neighborhood where everyone has a garage... oddly enough as we were heading out today, I realized something. Over half of these people don't park their cars in their garages. Ya know why??


Seriously, the lady living next door to us puts this picture to SHAME. Laundry baskets, tall standing fans, big wall pictures, boxes of who knows what... YIKES. There is even one house down the road that has an ENTIRE wall of shelving on one side of their garage full of ........ shoes. Yes. 100+ pairs of shoes in the two-car garage.

From what I've seen anyone that parks in the driveway here has a garage that would rival an evil Halloween corn maze, except there's no room for walking paths. Call me crazy, but I have a funny feeling that junkola in there isn't going to be used anytime soon... why not, hmmmm, throw it out? I know we didn't pay extra for a two-car sized crap storage unit attached to our house. Our cars go IN the garage. Not in the driveway, while mounds upon piles of those creepy little ceramic frogs that sit in your garden take over your garage. Or old desk furniture. Or 200 pairs of worn out, fashion-backwards Payless* shoes. I just can't stand clutter in large, ominous amounts! (You know all those garden gnomes are going to amass at the foot of your bed one night, staring at you...........)

(Note that I do love Payless, just in moderation!)

Lol I agree with payless in moderation! Thats embarrassing for that lady! I always cringe when I see people on the news who literally have to have like hazard people come in and clean out their house! Ewwwww.

Gabby said...

*LOL* I love your note about Payless. Too funny. I like Payless too. It's the only place I've been able to find decent tall boots, for a decent price, to fit my large calves. If only they carried them in brown. *le sigh*

Anyway, funny, funny, funny!

Have you ever seen Clean House -- seriously these people need to get rid of the junk!

Have you seen Hoarders???

I'm quite organized, but after watching the show I want to throw everything in my house away and shower.

We park in the driveway but not because of junk like that. Tool boxes and workbenches take up a lot of space plus there is almost always a project under construction. We can park one inside but usually don't.

HAHAHA!!! to the gardem gnomes. I sometimes imagine them haunting peopl. standing there. Saying anything. ...Staring at you with those jolly psycho smiles.

Yes to no junk. You should show them how it's done. Don't let it happen to you.

P.S. congratulations on your move in!! Glad.

[b]Oregon 300[/b]

уристический gps навигатор Garmin Oregon 300 имеет высокочувствительную антенну, контрастный цветной сенсорный экран, а так же корпус стандарта IPX7. В отличии от Oregon 200, 300-я модель имеет встроенный электромагнитный компас и барометрический высотомер. Во всем остальном Garmin Oregon 200 и 300 – два брата близнеца.


Устройство имеет предустановленную карту мира, а так же способно воспроизводить другие картографические продукты компании Garmin и компаний дилеров. Кроме всего прочего, с недавнего времени, приборы получили возможность обрабатывать пользовательские растровые карты, к которым можно отнести отсканированные листы, спутниковые снимки, водные лоцманские карты, а так же многие другие.

Пылевлагозащищенный корпус

Важнейшим параметром, который определяет работоспособность и живучесть прибора – является защита корпуса по установленному стандарту. Для Garmin Oregon – это IPX7, что очень важно для использования устройства в самых сложных условиях, будь то дождь, снег или грязь. Стоит так же отметить, что устройство способно работать на метровой глубине в течении 30 минут.

Nike Air Max 96 des visites + le territoire de l'évolution
La même chose que les chaussures de la [url=]Air Max Pas Cher[/url], Nike Air Max 96 devrait être relativement discret, sa popularité et la vente subséquente de la version n'a apparemment pas Nike Air Max 1 Nike Air Max 90 autant. La récente Nike semble tourner le sens de la résurrection, bien sûr, bien sûr, pas d'un simple re-lancé en est ainsi amélioré les chaussures ont lancé la Nike Air Max 96 + version évolutive de la chaussure. Les chaussures avant la grande différence est évidemment dessus utilisé la technologie de ligne de mouche Flywire pour s'assurer que la version évolutive de la légère et respirante. La technologie d'amorti Nike Air Max Pas Cher classique toujours être conservée. Argent et cyan le dessus accompagnés fluorescente verte semelle de rembourrage apporte aussi un sentiment différent sur les sens visuels.
