After he gets a solid tan in the caribbean with Christine, he should then visit Bartman. Bartman will no doubt upgrade him from flat to corrugated :twisted: :lol:

Sorry Stan!!! It was just a cut and paste error not some nefarious plot. :oops:

Looking at the pictures of Bartman I think Flat Stanley would go beyond corrugated and would end up needing a new name!

We have met Flat Stanley in person at Crash B's last February but did not give him the hospitality he deserves. Peter and I would like to host him in Saratoga, New York. The rest of the Docter family can come too. :D

Flat Stanley has arrived here in northern New Zealand much to the delight of my three grand daughters. I hope to have his trip sorted this weekend and have him on his way to Thomas WP.

Excellent Chris :fsbgrin:

Megan got an excellent grade on her project and the teacher is interested to continue to hear from Flat Stanley as he continues his journeys. Whoever gets him, please post 2 or 3 photos so that Megan can report back to her class about the place he visited.

I hope that Flat Stanley was suitably initiated in true Bootneck manner. Flattened after a few wets of flat pack lager. Flat out in his hammock after ten pints of flat ale :roll: :roll:

The kids been bugging me on when Flat Stanley's coming. Told them that if they are not going to be patient, Wolfmiester will come instead. :lol: - you are welcome anytime you're in SoCal.

Flat Stanley seems to be having so much fun partying. I wonder how he feels about chick flick movies. :wink:

Stanley arrived in Fairlie today and is going to school with Elizabeth tomorrow to meet all his cousins who have been on similar (though shorter) World voyages.

He may well come skiing this weekend, but then will need another location I would imagine. Photos will follow.

I'm not sure I can show Flat Stanley such a a good time as Chris and Thomas, but I will try!

I am looking forward to his visit.

Stanley wanted to ski, but we could not find skis small enough and the queues were too long.
