By Mark Maske-LangstonESPN Staff WriterMatt’s story about a guy who had to learn to climb stairs in his basement is a true gem.
It’s part of the story of how Matt and his wife have been able to keep the house on their own for years without any problems.
We talked about Matt and how the basement was like a basement, and he was the first person we ever told how to do it.
Matt had never used a ladder before and had no idea what he was doing.
He was on his hands and knees.
I’m sitting here thinking about how we’re going to do this.
Matt and I were in a basement that had collapsed down to our floor, and there were three large wooden beams and a chain link fence that was a bit like a ladder, with a big rope tied around it.
We were going to need help, but we had to make sure that it wasn’t the wrong one.

And then he was going, ‘Well, we’ll just do it with a ladder.’
And he said, ‘That’s okay, I’ll just take a ladder from the closet.
We’ll just go down.’
And when we were down, Matt had a rope around his waist and he had to climb a ladder.
I think he was probably three feet tall.
Once we got down to a certain height, he grabbed a ladder and we went down, and the next thing we knew, we were in the basement, looking down on our family’s home.
We could hear the water coming out of the roof, and I remember hearing a splash, and it was coming out at us.
It was scary.
And we were all really scared, and then we just jumped out of bed and started climbing.
The first few times we were on the stairs, we just tried to stay out of reach.
It took us a little while to get used to the weight of the ladder and it wasn
