Thanks to Mary, when my niece sent Flat Stanley to visit me in the LP a few years ago, I knew what it was all about ... and had a lot of fun with that creative school project! Happy Friday to all!! :-)

Good morning! It's truly hard to believe that we can come here to more gorgeous snow pictures every day. It's amazing!!

Lake Linden's my kind of town in 2005 or any other year! Flat Stanley's a smart guy!

I see Flat Stanley in 2005 and it reminds me of Mr. Bill about to get run over by a truck...Oh Noooooo!

I was the teacher who sent Flat Stanley to Mary in 2005. She was so great taking pics of places she took him. He enjoyed a visit to the Lake Linden school and he even had a pasty. I cannot tell you what fun it was for me and my fourth graders in southeast Michigan. I'm retired now, but I'll always remember that project where I was able to share my love of the U.P. with my kids. Thanks, Mary, for helping us to have such fun learning and going the extra mile for the sake of the kids.

Cindy, do you (or anybody) remember the name of the "Flat (girl)". The granddaughter of a friend who lived in Michigan sent one to us several years ago. My husband printed a copy of it, so it's still around here somewhere.

I remember Flat Stanley coming through the Quincy Mine a few years ago. I was giving the tour and I must say he was one of the best guests I ever had underground; kept quiet, didn't ask any questions, and followed directions perfectly!! ;-)

2008: "The Motor Tobaggon [sic] - Elaison"

Elaison snowmobiles, originally from Sayner, WI not Ontonagon (On-a-toboggan), eh? <wink>

Oops, I remember now concerning my question about the "Flat (girl)"...the granddaughter's teacher had her students make 'paper dolls' of themselves with THEIR names, instead of hers was "Flat Katie". Glad I remembered, it was driving me nuts.

By Cindy, New Baltimore, MI (Cindy) on Friday, February 3, 2012 - 11:52 am:

Shirley, I never heard of doing that, but what a cute idea!

Hi. It has been warm enough for much of January and early February this year, that it is making the statue building parts of Tech's Winter Carnival in Houghton fairly difficult. They aren't hurting so much for lack of snow, as they are hurting for cold enough temperatures to form and shape their structures. You might call it a structural engineering nightmare, perhaps? It will be interesting to see what they manage to build this year, given the conditions UP there. (It is 34 right now on campus, at almost 3 pm.) Good luck Huskies! Hopefully you will get some weather cold enough to be able to work on the statues, form them, and get them to hold together. (Carnival starts on Wed, Feb. 13, and the all-nighter is that night.)

On the other hand, I approve of my lower heating bill this winter here in the Lower Peninsula. We've had several good snowfalls, down here, but they get wiped out by the warmer temperatures in a few days. I'm not complaining: I'm happy about that, for here!

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Friday, February 3, 2012 - 05:27 pm:

By the way, congratulations on the 'bird', "Maa"! Didn't have to share it this morning.:)

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, February 3, 2012 - 10:57 pm:

I thought the all nighter starts Wednesday, February 8?? (the 13th is Monday....)

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Saturday, February 4, 2012 - 03:07 am:

Oops, you're right, Capt Paul, it is this coming Wed, Feb 8. I hope they get some cold enough weather to allow their structures to freeze safely before and during then.

I got something in my e-mail 'in box' from Pasty Central. All it said in the subject was 'correction', I deleted it without reading it. It did not say from Mary Drew or Charlie Hopper, so I deleted it.

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Saturday, February 4, 2012 - 09:24 am:

mickill, it was from Charlie, correcting the Stormy Kromer typo in the previous e-mail.

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Saturday, February 4, 2012 - 04:23 pm:

SHIRLEY, I never got a previous e-mail from Charlie.
