It May be a Mini But it Maxes Out Our Garage!

     If you have been following my blog you know that we bought a Mini-Cooper a couple of months back. Our desire was, for the first time ever, to be able to put our car in the garage. That meant we could buy a Mini-Cooper, a Smart Car, or a bicycle built for two. 

George drives Minnie carefully in. There is about an inch of space on each side for "Wiggle Room."
     We opted for the Mini, which has been a favorite of ours but only a skilled driver can drive Minnie into the garage and back her out. That would be George. Observe...

There is one little cleared area for George to get out.

Even so, it's a tight fit.

I have never been one to care about putting the car in the garage. Somehow Minnie seems different.

Your garage is my garage. It will never again see a car within its boxes and books.

Note to mybabyjohn,

Only one door can open. I have to get out outside. And if George puts on any more weight, well its over for him as the driver.
We may have to get busy on the exercise just so that he can get out of the car door. Hah!

My God, your garage is so clean. Mine looks like a swap meet on steroids.
