Shuffled Out






I was so surprised when Gary opened up the garage door this morning, and there was the van, ready to hitch me up. I wondered at first if we were going camping. Had Gary told me we were and I missed it? Then I realized that Gary had on his grubby work clothes, and that meant we weren't going anywhere. But, he did hitch me up to the van, and pulled me out to the front yard. We weren't going camping, but at least I was outside enjoying some fresh air. Nothing wrong with that! I sat out there for a couple of hours, just hanging out and watching the squirrels playing in the trees. Meanwhile, Gary was busy in the garage, but I wasn't sure what he was doing. The garage door opened, and there was my brother Henry. He got to come outside too. This was unusual. I was thinking that Gary was probably cleaning the garage, and needed the room to move things around. I was certain my other brother Scotty would be coming out next, but instead, that ugly old Terry trailer rolled out. I knew that wasn't a good sign. The Terry trailer NEVER gets moved. I waited, but Scotty never came out. A little while later, Henry went back into the garage, and then, sadly, I was next. Scotty had been moved to where the Terry trailer was. Henry was moved into Scotty's old spot. And I was rolled into the middle of the garage where Henry used to be. Not a good thing for me at all. Being in the center of the garage meant that the Terry trailer would be taking my spot in front of the door. Now I know I won't be going anywhere for awhile because I have that big ugly roadblock in front of me. When Gary used to open the door, I could see out and enjoy the view. Look at the pics at what I'm seeing now. Yuck! This is NOT fun. Gary tells me that he's going to install the door and windows back in the Terry trailer, and it will be gone for good. He moved it to the front of the garage so he would have room to work on it. Well, I'll promise you this. I am going to bug Gary everyday until he gets that monstrosity out of MY garage. I want my space back, I want my view back, I want to go CAMPING!!!
