Order in the Fully Enclosed Carport

A blogger buddy of mine, Trobairitz, posted a challenge in response to a blog post from the blog of someone she knows.

That's how this blog circle works. Circle of owners, that is. You get to know someone, enjoy their blog and, soon enough, you find yourself reading stuff they enjoy reading. Sometimes it feels a bit like stalking. But it's all in good fun.

I've "met" lots of cool people that way. Check out my blog roll on the bottom left if you don't believe me.

Anyway, the challenge was a humble one thrown down by Flyboy at A View From Above. After sharing images showing the building of his man cave, he challenged fellow bloggers to post a pic or two so others can see where your bicycle or motorcycle lives.

Even though I abhor the term "man cave" -- sorry, I really do -- I can't resist a photo challenge.


Especially since both of my bikes live in the same place. Look closely to the left of those two motorized machines and you may spot a tiny piece of my woefully underutilized bicycle.

Hubby's bikes share the space. Actually, I should say that my bikes share the space with his. He's the one that does such a fine job maintaining order in that little garage of ours.

That's my motorcycle on the left. In case you can't tell the difference. 

It's just a plain, old, unremarkable garage. But it houses some pretty cool stuff, eh?

If you'd like to join in, don't forget to link back to Flyboy's original post. You never know what new friends you might encounter along the way.

That is a spacious garage. I like it.

It continually amazes me how blogs make the world seem so small. I enjoy peeking in on blogs of friends of bloggers and then I end up having a huge list of blogs to read and catch up on.

With all of the crap going on in the world, blogs are my little bit of joy when the news of the world is so bleak.

It only looks spacious because Hubby spent most of the day on Saturday cleaning and organizing while I was off riding horses. :-)

Yeah, I have to be careful with blogs. They tend to suck me in. I follow only a select few regularly and peek in on other when I have lots of spare time on my hands (almost never!). It's funny how you can really get to know people through their blogs.

Having a blog is like having a 2nd "unpaid" job, but I am grateful for the many people we meet along the way. It's fun to have a network of friends scattered all over the world.

We spent most of Sunday cleaning our garage so I could take a pic. It was pretty before because of renovation debris. We still walk out there and say 'whoa look at all the room now'.

And I agree with Bob. It is nice to have such a network of friends scattered all over the world. If only it were easier for everyone to meet.

Kathy/Trobairitz:

not too hard to meet if you plan a couple of years in advance. I suggested Hawai'i, January 2014. Rent a place on the beach and rent scooters

It’s a good thing that you and your hubby both have motorcycles. I’m pretty sure that both of you are biking enthusiasts. This can allow you to travel to distant places with minimal gasoline expenses. Motor biking can also be a good bonding activity with your husband. You can have motor bike racing in your place or visit near places while riding on it.

Hmmm, from this angle, your bike does look like your husband’s, haha! On a slightly more serious note though, I think it’s great that you and your husband can share something like a passion for motorbikes and riding. Every married couple has a thing that ties them together, and yours happens to be riding motorbikes! I think it’s actually pretty sweet. What’s the farthest place you have ever reached together on your bikes? That might be a really interesting story, I think!

I totally agree with Max. Couples find their own unique ways of bonding, and I think it’s pretty cool that yours and your husband’s thing is motorbikes. How long have the two of you been riding together?
