Are you a newb who stuck around long enough to read and post beyond a single drive-by post in Vaccinations or Breastfeeding or whatnot?

 

If so, please enjoy the following tale. It's become part of MDC's shared history.

Thank you.  Fun reading!

 

I do know several sources for chicken diapers. :p

 

And dh's truck would never fit into the garage.  He keeps it parked in the driveway right outside.  We each like something different.  He likes backing into the driveway, I like driving straight in.  When in public, he will drive around looking for the prime spots near the entrance.  I just drive to perimeter, park and walk the rest of the way.  I hate driving around and I can use the exercise. 


Give me a few minutes while I caffeinate.

Oh, wow.  DH and I are saving up for a garage.  Where does that leave us????  Because, it being spring in New England, all I can say is "We park the cars wherever it isn't too boggy."

My garage was as clean as I required it.  I know, it would have been better to get rid of the excess baggage so it could be used as designed.  We currently don't have a garage, so there the metaphor dies.

 

Or does it?

More than happy.  We both park all over the place.  Sometimes together, sometimes not.  But, MariaMadly, when we moved we laid down a lot o gravel to help with the drainage problems.

The important thing is to not make ruts where you park.
