Here is Paula outside the family room window. She hangs out here a lot. Usually she goes back and forth like a shooting gallery duck. She likes to be with people and we are inside. She stays outside because she poops at random. Big gooey poops. She poops as she walks back and forth, so she is building a poop rampart.
Poop is flammable, which may not be the best feature for a rampart. If the enemy surrounds you, they can just set fire to your defenses and smoke you out. Poop smoke would be even harder to breath than plain smoke.
The lookout tower is also under construction. I don't know if it is more functional that Paula's rampart.
My SIL gave me this oil lamp for Christmas. I've wanted one for a long time, but it's not the kind of thing you buy for yourself. Me, anyhow. It was good to have when we lost power in the recent storm. Handmade by Roy, who calls his brand Shovelin' Barefoot.
