Read about the antics of Patrick’s friends Rancid Crabtree and Retch Sweeney in such stories as “Shaping Up for the Hunt” and “Bear Hunters”. McManus plays off the recent obsession with hoarders in his surprising story “The Lady Who Kept Things”. In the titular story, meet Patrick’s horse, Huckleberry, and enjoy the experience of all the problems that come along with owning your own horse - or keeping him in the garage.
Other great stories include “Catch-And-Eaters”, about the importance of a forked stick when fishing; “$7000 TV Historical Extravaganza”, a look at one director’s loose interpretation of historical accuracy and political correctness; “A Lake Too Far”, concerning the woes of Patrick and his wife, Bun, on a fateful birding trip in Australia; and “Chicken Chronicles”, which involves Patrick’s memory of wandering around naked in the chicken yard when guests came to call.
So pull up a chair, sit back, and enjoy laughing to the hilarious adventures of Patrick F. McManus in The Horse in My Garage and Other Stories.

WE REALLY ENJOY PATRICK MCMANUS!
As much as I like Mr. McManus, I just could not finish listening to this book. I tried several times. I think the reader would be great with a novel, but after hearing other McManus books read out loud, this was just droll and boring. We've read all of his books out loud as a family so I was hoping for a winner. I'm sorry, I really tried to enjoy it. Read it yourself and laugh out loud!

Forbidden childhood and blissful sleep.
I grew up in Spokane, close to Mc Manus’ home town, and had similar youthful adventures driven by youthful curiosity and experimentation that now leads kids to prisons run for profit. I’ve laughed my way to blissful sleep with Mc Manus short stories thousands of nights, and his Audible books have become the last thing i hear every night.
