Getting someone's attention using a ball & rope


I recently had back problems and had to stay in bed. We live in a two story house so whenever I needed something it meant extra steps for members of my family. My 13 year old son Dan, had an ingenious way to save steps. He found a ball and long rope. He gave me one end of the rope and ran the other end out the bedroom door, down the hall to the top of the stairs. Then he took the ball and wrapped the rope around it. He put the ball near the edge of the stairs. When I needed something I tugged on the rope and ball would roll down the steps. When he heard the thumping of the ball, he'd pick up the phone. I'd be on the extension and tell him what I needed.
