Luke staged a 4-prong rescue:
- A set of paratroopers jumped from a plane flying overhead to try to snag the kitten on their decent.
- A fire-breathing dragon ambled in to burn down the tree and
- A tank lumbered to the base of the tree to catch the kitten as it fell from the incinerated tree
- Finally, if all of that failed, someone brought that ladder. :)
So it wasn't a surprise when a few years ago, he created THE BUS STOP SUPERHERO! For at least 6 months, Luke dressed up in a different superhero concoction and walked with us to Jack's bus stop. A Darth Vader Mask + a Ninja Turtle Sword + Batman Cape one day... a light saber + Wolverine Claw + Power Ranger costume the next:
And at the end of the day, the BUS STOP SUPERHERO crashes hard in his lair... ready to protect and serve another day.
No matter what the costume, we always knew we were protected at the bus stop when THE BUS STOP SUPERHERO WAS AROUND!!
