the last days of the old double garage

World Headquarters has always had an outbuilding, a two and a half car detached garage.  This garage is the model for all the detached garages in Kekionga, and appears directly in the comics as The Old Double Garage where Shadow the Small Bad Wolf lives in the Little Maudie stories.  (Read the minicomic Birds in a Sluddle for more about Little Maudie and Shadow.)

lastdaysgarage1-blogI’ve looked at the honest, ugly face of The Old Double Garage pretty much every day of my life for the last twenty five years.  Today they came to tear it down.  Above is the last photograph ever taken of this historic structure.  It’s standing empty, with snow fence already strung to keep the dogs in the yard when the garage isn’t there.  Under the grey tarp are the wheelbarrow and the lawn mower, waiting for their new home.  More on this story as it develops.

    The New Double Garage will appear here in due course. It’s my understanding that it will be a foot taller and be sided to match the house.
