a backhoe neighbor

Our neighbor, Mr. Drew, walks by our house every morning on his daily walk. We love to chat with Mr. Drew. On Saturday morning, when Mr. Drew walked by, he saw our lopped bushes. I told him all about how we bought this house and were getting rid of the bushes. He said he could come back with his backhoe and help us dig them out. Mom and Dad thought that was a great idea, so at eleven o'clock, Mr. Drew was rolling into our yard with his backhoe.

He made it look so easy. He had those bushes out in no time!

I even joined him in the cab.

Then he sat back and let me work the bucket all by myself.

Thank you for helping us, Mr. Drew!
