Happy Birthday, Robert

 

             Grandpa took this photo this fall.

Below is a picture of you when you were three, almost four.  You and Grandpa are picking apples from our red delicious apple tree.



Back then, one of your favorite books  was this one, Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel, story and pictures by Virginia Lee Burton.



The story is exciting. Will Mike and Mary Ann, the steam shovel, get the cellar for the townhall dug in a day?

 
 

As it turned out, Mike Mulligan and Mary Ann had an even bigger problem than digging the cellar in one day but a little boy helped them. Sometimes, when I was busy I put this tape in so you could watch the story on the television.



Now you prefer your car to a steam shovel.

I hope your birthday is a wonderful day.

Love, Grandma
