Pauline and I can live with only one car. So in the summer we use our 2002 Mercedes C230, and in winter the Subaru. We store the unused car in our garage but have to tuck it into a corner so we can get our Golf Cart in and out. Yesterday was swap car day 1. I slid the Mercedes to the center of the garage by tugging and pushing, jacked the car at each wheel so I could remove its dolly and then I gently lowered it without hurting myself. Then I parked the Subaru and Golf cart on the street and the Mercedes in the driveway. Next I had to clear the garage of the garden furniture that was previously store on the Mercedes roof and all the accumulated junk that materialized during the winter.  By the time I got to making dinner I was so tired that I forgot to make a video or even take a picture. But it was so delicious that I decided to post it anyway.
