Adventures In Home Ownership

Well, you learn something new every day. I already knew that the nylon mesh garden netting I have isn't much use for keeping out determined rabbits and deer.

What I didn't know was that the same netting, if piled on a high shelf by the garage door, is very good at getting itself wrapped around the axil of the automatic door opener, clogging up the pulley, making the guy wire jump its track and causing the entire door to skew out of balance, thereby making it impossible to close all the way.

Oh, it's perfect for that.

And, of course, there's the matter of getting your fingers jammed between the door and the wall as you try to single-handedly cope with the situation. But I like to think of that as just an added little bonus.
