The laundry claims a victim

The garage door kept opening inexplicably yesterday and had me wondering if our new neighbors were making it happen. It didn't seem logical, since they almost certainly kept the garage door codes that came with the house when they bought it a couple of months ago.

Then, this morning I was taking clothes out of the dryer and found that I had sent my key fob remote garage door opener through the laundry. It is, of course, dead as a doornail.

I have a new one on order from for about $35. I noticed in the product description that the battery can be expected to last about five years, so mine was long overdue to fail.

I bought it to carry on motorcycles so I could easily operate the garage door, coming and going. It also comes in handy when I'm mowing the lawn and don't want to leave the garage door open because of the occasional snake or other varmint.
