It’s amusing that the WordPress Discover Challenge focuses on the story behind a door, as that has been my story this weekend 🙂 One of our garage door openers decided to fail on opening with a horrible ratcheting noise that indicates that the trolley is skipping on the screwdrive system. Looking for a replacement part resulted in finding that it would have to be ordered directly from the manufacturer, so, as my wife parks her car in that bay, I decided to undertake the replace and upgrade strategy.
As this is not something that I do every day, it does take a little more time to disassemble the old garage door opener system and at this point, I’m pretty close to having the new one in place, which is the job for this morning. It’s a matter of creating the motor attachment to the ceiling and wiring the controls to get it up and running; 2 hours or so.
This brings me back to this door from a year ago on the side of a barn near the Herring Era Museum in Siglufjörður, Iceland. Behind this door lies a rich history of people working to achieve their dreams in the rough North Atlantic waters. Hard dangerous work with lots of interesting stories.
Once I am done with the door, I’ll spend a bit of time on the yard and then it’s on to pulling together the list of images for the exhibit that opens on August 1st. I will share the final decisions with you, as it will have your input as part of it.
Hopefully that will leave some time for music, because there’s a little blues song that I want to do some more work on… Blue Jeans Blues by ZZ Top:
Have a wonderful Sunday!
