What’s in a Garage? (2 views)

New homes in the burbs might have a 3-car. Many city houses don’t have one! Saw this 1-car garage while stopped at a red light on Steuben Street.  No automatic garage door opener on this one.  My garage doors fold, glass panes at the top of each panel from the late 1920’s when it was built, and a tin ceiling! Garages-  attached, detached,  living quarters above.  The bus garages taken from the parking lot at the gym by Bakery Square.  “Things you find in a garage”, a good category for a game show. Mine is full of sleds, garbage cans, pruning shears, a stack of shingles, window washer fluid and old golf clubs. Time for a garage sale!

Touch-a-Truck Day, Westerville, OH

Michael, Anna and Jack learn how to ride a city bus.

Touch-a-Truck Day in Westerville Ohio -Tow truck,news van, fire & rescue, police car, farm machinery, helicopter, animal control van, big diggers, school bus and a giant truck cab.  Kids and babies in strollers, parents carrying and corralling them, wait in line for a turn- vehicle to vehicle. Each sat in the driver’s seat, held the wheel, while honking the horn. A bus driver distributing transfers and the children were given  How to Ride a COTA (Central Ohio Transit Authority) Bus coloring/activity bookS, a package of crayons, in the plastic bags.  I sat across from them as they listened,  Jack holding his transfer. Thought this scene called for conversion to black and white.
