Visitors Series 005 - Flat Stanley
Monday - April 25th 2005 - A Special guest arrived today. Flat Stanley finally got here. He will be here for several days. Jenna was kind enough to send him to us.
Just wanted you to know that Flat Stanley arrived safely today in Niwot Colorado. Heís looking forward to an exciting vacation in Colorado. I asked him what heíd like to do and see while he was here but he was so exhausted from the trip in the envelope that all he wanted to do was sit. I took a picture of him in the recliner. He was a little cranky and tired. I also took a picture of him in his bed in the guest room. I wish you could have seen him. He was so excited about our plans for tomorrow that he could hardly close his eyes. I donít want to make you jealous but weíre taking him to the Chipmunk Village in Estes Park tomorrow. Itís supposed to rain so Iíll have to make certain he has a raincoat. I told Flat Stanley to remind me to buy some sunflower seeds before we left. You remember how much those cute little buggers loved the sunflower seeds, donít you? Mike is going to take him to visit some ghost towns in his Jeep. We wonít be able to take the top down since weíre expecting some rain. Iíll take some more pictures of Flat Stanley tomorrow and send them along with him when he returns home.
Uncle Mike and Aunt Joan
He sat down to rest and watch TV as soon as he got out of his envelope. He was tired. That envelope was crowded and stuffy. He asked for a bigger envelope for the return trip.
After discussing all the places we plan to take him, Flat Stanley decided he needed to go to bed and rest.
I suspect over the next several days he will be extremely busy. Joan and Mike discussed several trips for him including visiting Estes Park, the Chipmunk town, and Mike will surely take him to several interesting Ghost Towns.
Tuesday - April 26th An adventure in Estes Park Colorado.
I just wanted you to know what a wonderful time Iím having in Colorado. Aunt Joan took me to the mountains at Chipmunk Village near Estes Park and you wonít believe what happened. The chipmunks remembered you from when you were here two years ago. They said they wish everyone would bring good food like you did. Remember their fat little cheeks stuffed with the sunflower seeds? They loved them.
Here is a picture of my adventure.
Uncle Mike is going to take some time off from work tomorrow and take me to a ghost town. In his Jeep!!! Aunt Joan said he works way too hard and this will be just the thing so he isnít so cranky. I donít know what sheís talking aboutóhe played video games with me all night and he didnít holler at me at all.
Here is a picture of me playing video games.
Canít wait to get home and tell you all about my vacation. Iím bringing pictures.

Met with some magazine executives today. I may get a shot at my own magazine. This is what they proposed for the first cover issue.
What do you think?
WEDNESDAY April 27th
What a day! I went to a ghost town with Uncle Mike today in his Jeep. I didnít want to say anything to him, but I was so scared when he said we were going to a GHOST town. There was no way I wanted to see ghosts! It wasnít really a town with ghosts. It was an old gold mining town from years ago where the gold miners used to live. Saw some old gold mines too. I felt kind of silly thinking we were going to see ghosts. What a relief!
My last day in Colorado. Tomorrow Iím going to be coming home. Iím bringing lots of pictures. Did you miss me? Uncle Mike and Aunt Joan said theyíre really going to miss having me around to brighten their days.
Thursday - April 28th 2005
I just barely have time to write this note before the mailman comes to pick me up. I donít want to be late. Iím so anxious to see you again. I should be arriving at your house on Friday. Donít forget to check the mailbox. Iíll be anxious to get out of the envelope. And, of course, Iíll have lots of pictures to show you and things to tell you about my trip to Colorado. I canít wait to share my adventure with everyone in your class too.
