Stair Bear

Today little bear decided that he was going to go and see the bottom of the dam... it looked very interesting and he was kind of curious to see what was down there.

Well... little bear had quite the adventure getting down there! Little bear had never come across such a long set of stairs in his life! One or two stairs... or even 10 or 12 were fine... but this was dozens... maybe hundreds! Oh boy... little bear was going to get his exercise today!

Whew... little bear did his little bend down and hop down routine over and over again until he was getting dizzy... and his legs were turning to mush... plus... there were big patches of ice on the stairs and he almost wiped out several times. Boy oh boy... was he ever going to write a letter to the city about how they should be maintaining the stairs and... grumble, grumble...

By the time little bear got to the bottom of the stairs, he was quite steamed about the whole thing... but then he had the wind taken out of his sails. Across the bottom of the stairs was a chain with a big sign that he could only read once he got off the stairs and turned around...

Oops... big oops... So that was why there was some broken yellow tape up at the top of the stairs. Guess he should have read that! Little bear has learned a valuable lesson today - always pay attention to stuff around you! And getting grumped and steamed about something is pretty much useless...

Which is a good lesson for us as well - we like to get grumped and steamed because we think that someone else has done something wrong... or not done something right... because we don't like to acknowledge that maybe we have a role to play in that as well! Good lesson from little bear!
