A week or so ago I offered to *host* Flat Stanley for the son of a Facebook friend. I’ve done this before and I think it’s fun and a neat project for kids. This particular teacher is only requesting postcards from each host location and not the usual photographs to go along with them. She probably figures this will make it easier to find people willing to host. However, I couldn’t resist taking some photos anyway…just in case.
I couldn’t figure out why Stanley came in such a large box until I opened it and found all this:
Jennifer, my Facebook friend, was so thrilled that I had offered to do this for her son that she sent these wonderful gifts. She’s one of my “green” friends and obviously knows me well.

Thank you, Jennifer!
So, this morning I took Stanley out to meet my chickens:
