Birthday Present


It was my tenth birthday.

Dad said he had a surprise for me. He said, put this blindfold on, we’ll go out in the back yard, and I will show you.

I was sure it was a puppy.

He took me out the back door, down the steps and into yard, leading me by the hand. I had the blindfold on.

He told me to reach out my hand.

It was the handle of a push lawn mower, like the one in the picture, a real push mower, not gasoline powered.

He told me that I was ten years old now and big enough to cut the grass. Oh boy!
