This was a cute little story about Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel that he took great care of. When the steam shovel was new she and Mike Mulligan got lots of work done and most people around liked to watch them work but as time past they were wanted for less and less work. The newer and faster equipment was wanted to do the new work. Mike Mulligan had heard of a new job in Popperville and he went and asked if he could do the work. The mayor of Popperville laughed at Mike Mulligan and his team shovel. Mike Mulligan said he could complete the job in one day and if he didn't then they mayor would not have to pay him for the job. Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel began to work and soon attracted a large crowd. In the end they completed to job in one day and everyone was very pleased. They ended up building a building around the steam shovel and using it for the generator for the building. Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel were very happy living int he basement they dug of the new building.
