You can’t say it’s not ready to hand
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread, Arlo.
Like Let’s Make A Deal, stick your hand in the box. Or was that another game show. Not The Price Is Right 3 strikes game.
Maybe it’s a Sasquatch.
I’m sure it’ll be something nostalgic from Arlo’s past!
“And the creepy thing that dwells in the dark corner of the garage ate Arlo, little children; and that’s the end of our story.”
Tune in next time, when Flash Gordon, err…Arlo, confronts the most fearsome disgusting opponent of his life! Don’t miss it!
Meanwhile, this commercial break is brought to you by Ovaltine, the yummy chocolate drink that kids love. Ask Mom to make you some today!
Someone please put that hoe away before someone steps on it. Whack!
Did Arlo seriously reach back there with no gloves and not even a light?
Or you could flip that switch on the wall….
Of the three things you listed, snakes are the ones worth going in there after.
This does not look good.
He’s found Ludwig’s secret stash of teaspoons.
Someone’s not ready.
Arlo no! Not bare handed.
I’m going with a human being hiding in his garage.
Years ago I told a coworker I had yellow jackets flying in and out of my gas grill cover on my camper. I didn’t want to get stung getting rid of them. He told me to tell my sons I’d give them a dollar to go uncover the gas tank.
Remnants of the ol’ sail boat?
Late last night, there was a screeching noise coming from my patio! It was dark and raining and I certainly wasn’t going out to see what the heck it was. It stopped and this morning I looked but there are so many plants in one area, I can’t see anything in them. I’m not sticking my hands in either.
It’s a Red Barchetta!
Down in his barnMy uncle preserved for me an old machineFor fifty odd yearsTo keep it as new has been his dearest dreamI strip away the old debrisThat hides a shining carA brilliant red BarchettaFrom a better vanished time
Pretty much the last thing he needs is to be bitten by a brown recluse spider…
Interesting choice for the 4th of July.
Roaches? I didn’t know you used to smoke dope in the garage. Does Janis know?
Maybe that’s just a bag of leaves … and twigs.
Arlo feels the touch of a disgusting hairy hand with very long nails. He finally found that amazing Halloween decoration that had been lost for years!
oh dear… wonder what’s in there.
To be continued?
It’s not so creepy if you put the lights on Arlo……
Raccoon, opossum, slime mold, bat, owl, dead body of one of those…
I must be an oddity as the garage, shed and store room are all well lit, clean and organized and we have been in this house for 15 years.
Like the basement in the house I grew up in. Dark, full of stuff everywhere, spooky to have to go down into.
Where Janis stashed his “lucky shirt”?
I had boxes stacked in my garage and when I started cleaning it out I found lots of needle-like tooth marks on them. I had a possum trapped in there. Found it asleep in a cat carrier, made removal rather easy.
OK JJ, Ya got me. I’ll be back tomorrow.
What’s that crawling up his leg???
First time through I read it as coroner of garage, I better ease up on murder mysteries
That mouse trap you had placed in that corner and forgot about has been found.
Bored city. I think he has lost his muse. Or it’s slipping away.
cue the dark ambient music with discordant overtones which, although broadly tonal, is inflected with chromatic and polytonal passages representing the archetypal example of a florid, melodramatic style without being interpreted as an overly heavy-handed metaphor within the context of the thematic material
Not what I expected for July 4th
Spiders and roaches and snakes, Oh my!
There is nothing in my house that gives me the creeps. I’ll add to this when she leaves the room.
Where did this car come from?
My list would start with snakes Ar.o.
Jimbo, too! https://www.gocomics.com/roseisrose/2023/07/04
I may have missed the suspense, but how does a stationary bike get a flat tire? (sorry squirrel moment) :)
Oooh, cliffhangar! :-D
Be boring, move the wood one piece at a time and stack horizontally in a space specially cleared for stacked wood. Later cut it into pieces and use as firewood.
Going where no man has gone before…
