FOR COOPER’S EYES

(Okay, a brief break from hurricane news . . .  ) 

Dear Cooper,  here are some pictures of the trucks and the men who came to work on my driveway.   Wish you could have been here!

Here is my bad driveway:

1-my-driveway-400

I don’t know what this guy is called, but he’s  coming!

2-here-he-comes

 

Cutting into my driveway:

3-cutting-my-driveway

4-very-very-first

 

The shovel thing on the big truck scooped up the pieces:

5-poom

 

And then it dumped it into the dump truck:

4-5-dumping

 

Lots of things in Grandma’s driveway — and they were noisy!

7-two-trucks

 

Lots of men working too!

8-5-lots-of-men

 

This man got to walk on the hot, soft driveway with special shoes to pack it down smooth.

9-wkg-man-shoes

c-walking-m-3

This man got to use fire to burn the new asphalt into the old asphalt on the street so  the old and the new would blend together and make a smooth seam,

10-fire

 

Little car, big truck.   Grandma’s car was trapped by big trucks all day:

11-little-car-big-truck

Where’s my nice new driveway?     What does it look like?

Well, it rained.    I have to take a picture of it tomorrow, and then I will put the picture on a CD-Rom and send it and more pictures to you.

So check your mail in a few days!!!!

 

Bye!
