Default Green stuff all over garage floor, and i'm happy!

Got a call yesterday afternoon from my daughter, that theres green stuff all over floor, my brain went in to panic mode!!!! what now? There.was.nothing on floor when i left this morning , leaks dont generally happen when car is static and hasnt moved in 4 days! So i get home expecting the worse!

Never before have i been so happy over spilled paint!!!! Lol. Looks like stuff im.collecting in garage for yard sale this weekend must have shifted and knocked over a paint can! Not really sure why lid wasnt on well enough.. anyways, its latex paint, so let it dry and peel it up!!!

My first thought (and I'm sure yours too) was "Oh no, anti-freeze all over the garage!"

This is so much better

A couple of years ago, a rattle can of red on a garage shelf "exploded",
some got on the Jaguar !!! I got all but a drop off. No harm no foul.
White shelf has a red 'splotch". actually, kinda neat.

I've gathered a lot of left over paints over the decades. In my whirligig restoration, I used some. I found some had fossilized?
Oh, well, in to the debris can. Life goes on....
