Flat Stanley

Have you ever heard of Flat Stanley?

Flat Stanley is a 1964 children's book written by Jeff Brown (1926 – December 3, 2003) and illustrated by Tomi Ungerer. It is the first in a series of books featuring Stanley Lambchop, a completely flat boy.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I had never heard of the book, but several years ago I received my 1st flat Stanley in the mail.  Wikipedia refer to it as "The Flat Stanley Project.
I actually enjoy taking Flat Stanley around our little farming community to take pictures and then send them back  to the "student" .
EXCEPT the Flat Stanley (Flat Heleman) that arrived last month.
I took this little paper guy that had been sent to me ALL OVER THE PLACE and when it came time to make copies of the pictures I had taken my computer had "hid" my pictures in tons of different files.
I felt like I had been sent WALDO...get it..."Where's Waldo"...OK maybe not that funny...
Well, when it comes time to send the pictures back to this nice little girl who had named her guy,"BOB" back in the mail...I think I found 3 total pictures.
I was just sick...Well, a few days ago I decided I was going to find my little Flat Waldo...
I found some of the pics and thought I would share them with you.
Because darn it....I took some really cool picture!
For instants, in the letter that arrived with "Bob" said he liked Nachos
So, heck yea...I took him to the BEST nachos around.
Taco Bandito in Burley! (they don't have a web page or I would link it)
to the Oregon Trail Ruts
Shoshone Falls

We even had a new colt arrive the same day that "Bob" did.
and the ghost town of Milner, Idaho
The "door" you see... is the door to the bank vault that was in the town of Milner.
You can also see the walls that had fallen down.
It is the only part of the town that remains.
anyway...enjoy the pictures!
Oh and there are still a lot more pics with Flat "Bob" that I have not been able to find YET.

I have read the book but the "project" is new to me and I LOVE it! You are so stinkin' cool! Flat Bob's owner/sender/whatever-er is going to be so happy.

And speaking of happy, I'm glad your birthday was...happy, that is. ;-D

Boy that Bob sure gets around! I like how he keeps a smile on his face, but then who wouldn't, he saw some really great places!!

Lucky Bob!!!
