The foreman does the very last part.
He used a giant squeegy thing- kind of like a big push broom. My job was to use the paint brush on the sides of the road. After a while we had a nice system going. The black stuff stinks and it is very messy.
We also had to clear the edges away with a pick- luckily for me the foreman did this part.
You could almost call it an art form!
The donks watched for a long time but then disappeared. Apparently we weren't that interesting. They stayed around when the music was playing, though- they both really seem to love music.

More than half-way through!
After going through three pairs of gloves that were too big on me (the black goo kept sliding in by my wrists), I remembered I had these fancy garden gloves that I got years ago and never wanted to get dirty. Well, they were perfect for the job and now they are VERY dirty!
We used the truck to carry the very heavy buckets of black goo.
Inbetween spreading out the black goo, we'd have to stop once in a while to sweep the driveway clean of debris. It was super windy today and that didn't really help.
At lunch time I found the donkeys being very sleepy by the barn.
The foreman looks as if he's icing a giant cake!
This was early in the morning. By the afternoon I had trouble bending over!
You can see what a difference resealing makes!
My job may look like the easier of the two...but it was equally as hard. For one thing, I had to bend more and I had a small paint brush. But considering that the foreman had already spent days repairing and resealing a third of the driveway, I could hardly complain!
