Data: Taken five years ago in Louisiana, entryway of my cousin's home. On the tray Jeeves is holding you may see "Flat Stanley" who made the trip to Texas with us. Flat Stanley was creation of Grandson Brayton in partial fulfillment of requirements for third grade social studies. Stanley's trip was recorded photographically, pictures submitted to the student as required, along with notes on the trip.
It is supposed that Brayton's project was acceptable, for he is now an eighth grader.
Other memories sparked: This trip was the one in which we traveled along the Natchez Trace. We ate BBQ in Natchez. Stanley did not partake. We visited a haunted house in Louisiana. Stanley was not frightened. We had the wettest, coldest winter we have ever spent in coastal Texas. Stanley did not care.
And off the top of my head, twenty-two minutes before my bedtime and after a long, hard day of effort in the yard, which now looks pretty darn good if I do say so myself, that is about the best I can do!
