I was never a Star Trek fan.
My grandfather, bless his heart, was a HUGE fan.
I think he must have liked the far out technology because he was a man who was way ahead of his time.
Long before garage doors openers were ever invented and marketed, he created his own.
All Grandma had to do was push a button in her car, and not only did the garage open, the door to the house inside the garage unlocked and opened.
No one had ever heard of such a thing...He should have patented it.
Dear Grandpa...he was the sort of fellow that "Boldly went where no man had gone before..."
