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:
I don’t know what this guy is called, but he’s coming!
Cutting into my driveway:
The shovel thing on the big truck scooped up the pieces:
And then it dumped it into the dump truck:
Lots of things in Grandma’s driveway — and they were noisy!
Lots of men working too!
This man got to walk on the hot, soft driveway with special shoes to pack it down smooth.
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,
Little car, big truck. Grandma’s car was trapped by big trucks all day:
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!!!!
