Safety First

One of the final major improvements to our 4th-story balcony are safety wires for our girls. Mark has about half of the galvanized wire installed - will probably finish the rest today if his hands are up for it. The girls' heads and bodies are just about equal in width to the gaps in our balcony rail - not a good thing. The wires halve the width of the gaps, and look surprisingly cool with our other improvement!
Currently when we open the door to go out, we have to be very careful to net let one of them slip out. Both girls LOVE to sit on the balcony with us, especially Abbie. Most of the time we hold them. Occasionally when I'm here by myself, I put their harnesses on and leash them to one of the chairs.
Hopefully in a few more days, Ginger & Abbie can safely enjoy lounging harness-free on the balcony with us. Yea!!
