After 5 months of not being able to climb the stairs due to arthritis, thanks to my wonderful and helpful wife, I can once again go up whenever I want.

My gift for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and all of next year has finally been installed- a stair left allowing me to once again participate in the Fun upstairs!
