Flat Stanley came in the mail the other week. See, he was flattened by a bulletin board and now goes on adventures. He’s visiting Nevada to learn about cowboys and cowboy poetry. Flat Stanley has gone on quite a few adventures while in Elko. He drove an old ranch truck.
He pitched some hay.
He sat in a saddle.
He learned to carve leather.
He met a cowboy poet.
He recited some poetry.
He met a few musicians (Glenn Ohrlin and Adrian).
He played music with Dave Bourne.
And he finished his night with some sarsaparilla (that’s Rooster Morris, who made Stanley his hat).
He’ll be headed back to Michigan next week, exhausted like the rest of us, and with lots of stories to tell his Kindergartner friends about becoming a cowboy poet.
He also made a flat horse friend, Pancake, but I didn’t get any pictures of them together yet. Check back in the next few days for the story of Pancake the Paint.
