A Step Up

Ok this won't mean much to pretty much everyone reading my blog, but for my dad (who is still in Austria) this will be big news -- each day when I go for my walkies in the park behind our place usually you would have to practically jump up to the park - it was just some crappy stones that someone put in place as a sort of makeshift staircase. They were always falling apart and the few times that we got any rain here (yes, it's been awhile) they would always come loose. This made it really difficult for dad to walk with me because as you know he broke his leg last year, and climbing still isn't his strong suit.

Well dad, this morning at 6am we walked out and saw this (notice how well I model the new steps):

Yes, someone went and built stairs. I have no idea of who did it but someone did. A big thank you to whoever got out the power tools and did that because it works really well! I was a little surprised when I first saw it, but hey, I've been able to do stairs for some time now...

Mom wasn't able to catch much in the way of fun "action" shots because the battery was dying in the camera (yes - again) but at least we got a few of me eagerly awaiting my stickwork.

Around lunchtime we cruised around the Echo Park lake again - you know, just so I could count those ducks again.

I kind of like watching them scatter whenever I walk through...

Time to stop and smell the... lotus

Wow a random carpenter - you have it made now!! It's also nice to see you post for your human when they are away - i do the same thing for my dad because when he is away and the humans chat on the phone they always forget to talk about ME.

Have a great weekend - Dory

Great park! I love it when the citizenry just takes over and does what the civicry never seem to do. Bravo to your stair builder! And Bravo to the ducks too, just cause.
