The drug dealer guy had his own private way across the river, and he called it 'Lupe's Escape'. Well, Sweetie needed her own escape from The Stairway to Heaven, because Patty O'Malley (POM) would sit on the steps and prevent her from coming down!
|Beginning the work...|
|The Hubby and his tools|
|Lupe's Escape from below|
|See the new board closer to the top?|
Obviously, we need a second set of steps, leading to/from Lupe's Escape...not just a single board. The Hubby has his orders to make it so, however I am sure I'll be
Sweetie easily moves up and down The Stairway, and she spent over five minutes INSIDE THE HOUSE. She is comfortable there. POM, however, looks in the door and meows pitifully, and then turns tail and goes back down. My hope is that he keeps watching Sweetie, losing his fear to plain curiosity, and a desire to have whatever she is having!
To be able to keep them inside during the coldest winter nights is my goal, and The Stairway to Heaven with Lupe's Escape, and some work from The Hubby just might make it happen, Captain!
(Yes, I know we should call it 'Sweetie's Escape' but The Hubby and I have been quoting lines from "Romancing The Stone" for so many years, it's hard to change. So, Lupe's Escape it is! And Lupe is pronounced, 'loo-pay'.)
