Sylvester, ace reporter here, with the Park Report.
This is my spot on Daddy's desk so I see everything that goes on outside the front of our house.
(When he's awake, that is--ed)
Mommy has previously blogged about the park under construction across the street from our house. It seems like it's taking forever to get done! The concrete curbing has been finished for months. I was very nearly ready to dictate a letter to the Proper Authorities asking some rather pointed questions when on Monday a crew showed up with all sorts of equipment...
(Or tarmacadam, for the cats who speak that other, weird English.)
I directed Daddy to take photos of all the action for me.
Of course there was more than that little pile of asphalt, it took several big truck loads to finish the job. The workers had just last week completed the last bit of the bike trail that Mommy & Daddy ride on and apparently the park was next on their job list.
The machines made a ton of noise--The Baby had a bad day of it, she doesn't like loud engine noise like the garbage truck--and these vehicles sounded like a hundred garbage trucks!
I was, however, totally unfazed. I watched the entire day.
(he parts that he was conscious--ed)
It was cool and rainy outdoors and the hot asphalt made some really neat steam trails.
Here is the new road across from us, freshly laid.
I'm really excited that things might be moving along again!
Just think of all the fun people-watching I can do when the park is done.
(when he's not sleeping--ed)
Oh, and good job Daddy, on getting such good pictures for me. Now, back to work.
