Today we took Flat Stanley on a tour of Seattle,
upon request of Paul's nephew Bobby from Fort Worth.
Stanley went first to Microsoft, then traveled
to visit the Fremont troll. Next stop was Archie McPhee,
the Space Needle, and EMP. He was photographed
with the Pike Place Market pig, on the ice
with king salmon, in a pile of fresh oranges,
and with a Washington State Ferry in the background.
Lastly he sat at the base of the Tsutakawa mitt
at Safeco Field. Phew! Flat Stanley kept us running!
Tourists in our own city! We mixed in a few
townhome viewings (all thumbs down) and lunch
at a sports bar where we did not have the $22
everything-on-it Kobe beef burger.
I am very tired of Flat Stanley and want Paul
to take a photograph of me setting F.S. afire,
which we will not send to the nephew.
