Jeff and Maggie

I just saw my neighbor raking leaves with his little girl. She's two, so not much help, and in constant danger of disappearing under a pile.

From the window, I couldn't hear anything, but all of a sudden for some reason he put down the rake and picked her up. She draped over his shoulder and wrapped her arms around his neck, as he slowly headed inside to put her down for a nap.

He'll finish bagging while she sleeps, bending and stuffing and hauling and knowing he's a good dad.
