I have a daughter, she's 3, but there is absolutely no way she could get to the outlet.  It's back behind the dryer, with no access to it whatsoever.  thanks for trying, though.

here's where we finally ended up with this saga.  My roof guy went up into my attic during a major downpour, figuring this was the best time to find a leak.  Bone-dry everywhere.  Walked the entire length of my house twice.  Nothing.

So, my electrical guy came back over, and checked out the inside of the outlet.  Bone-dry, nothing.  So, we installed a new outlet, with water-proof tape on all circuits, and also put a new cord on the dryer, in case the dryer plug was the actual culprit.  It's been almost a month now, and we're still drying away.  I don't know what the actual original problem was, but something we did, fixed it.

Thanks to all of you for your help and ideas!  This place is great.
