I always park my broom in the garden when I return from the supermarket. It has its own private reserved place. Taking it down to the garage is complicated becaise of the stairs. I have my cat and bird to keep an eye on it. It is a kick start, just sit on it push off from the ground and up it goes: much quicker than the car, as you can just fly over the traffic problems on the roads and have no red lights to stop you. I also do not have to fill it with gas. Yes, my broom and I are parners. Where I go, my broom goes as well.
