It's official. I love Roebuck Door Company! Paul & Bill both rocked big time. And when I want to replace my garage door opener remote, or to get a second one, I know where to go.

(Yes, big box stores'n'such have 'em, or I could order online. But I know the one I get from Paul's company will work, and the $35 price is utterly competitive with the offerings at Blue and Orange.)

In related news, I learned that my springs have safety wires, so if they break they won't hit me or my car. And that my doors are cedar, in good shape, and would be "very expensive" to replace (which I wasn't anticipating doing, but it bears out my previous experience that when the Shorettes were here, they went for premium materials and good workmanship).

As unexpected home repair adventures go, this one ranks "splendidly."

How Wonderful

There is no love like like the love a homeowner has for a TRUSTED repair company.

One of the nice things the previous owners of this house did was have a sticker with the name of the garage door repair company they use in the garage by the opener. The company on the sticker has been acquired, but the phone number still works, and the successor company has done a great (and affordable!) job both times I needed them.

I'm glad you had as good an experience with your problem garage door.

And guess what movie is at the Uptown?

Re: w00t!
I'd guess that's that certain movie I haven't seen yet, which can't possibly be true. Surely I drove down to NYC and saw it 2 weeks ago, the moment it opened.

Oh, wait, I was in Toronto 2 weeks ago. And it was only showing in NYC and LA. Then I was working this past Monday evening for the one show at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA. And then...Friday. None of that explains Saturday and I'm now trying to decide which direction I'm driving in Sunday or Monday. It's either 51 minutes to Amherst or an hour to Framingham for a less-enticing theatre but a more productive route home seeing as I could stop at Wegmans. Then again, such a stop would be full of impulse spending temptation. Hmmmmm.

Louie and I are waiting for somebody to get back to us for our garage door issues. It's too bad we are so far away from you that a company that helps you can't possibly be the same one that helps us. (And we've had trouble getting through to people around the holidays. We had one excellent handyman come over today, but this is not the same person as the garage door staff.) I'm glad you got such good results, so fast.

Thanks and good luck with your garage door! I'm glad you have an excellent handyman to deal with other issues; they're a treasure, indeed.

It's good to hear from you.

Hurrah! Now nothing stands between the Cardis and its adventures in space and time!
