Flat Stanley on the Farm

Flat Stanley woke up to his usual routine of feeding the chickens their favorite treats and grains and then giving them plenty of water.  But when he went to collect the eggs, it was anything but routine today!

Flat Stanley had to hold the JUMBO egg with two hands as he brought it in to show Nana and Papa.

“I think an ostrich snuck in the chicken coop last night and laid a BIG egg,” Flat Stanley exclaimed in his high pitched voice, full of excitement.

“WOWZA!!  That IS a BIG egg!” Nana replied with equally as large eyes showing her surprise.

We couldn’t close the top of the egg container when we put it away and cannot wait to crack it open tomorrow to see if there are two yolks inside.

Today, they enjoyed the fresh fruit, BACON and fried potatoes that Nana made.

Nana and Papa had an appointment to pick out the carpet, tile and other flooring for their new house.  Flat Stanley had fun hiding between the carpet rugs that hung from the high ceiling.

He squeezed his flat body between the tiles and scared Nana as she walked by.

When it was time to go, Flat Stanley found his favorite seat in the cup holder and his stomach growled really loud.  Nana and Papa were hungry too and this made everyone in the car laugh.

Nana looked in the car computer “GPS” for restaurants in the area because we were in a place called Upton, MA.  It’s not as far up the road as a ton, but close. So Papa didn’t know what restaurants were nearby.

The GPS mentioned The Red Rock Grill and we were on our way!

While browsing through the menu, Papa started laughing and asked Flat Stanley if he wanted what they called “Jeb’s Burger.”

Flat Stanley looked at the menu and both agreed that Jeb’s Burger sounded pretty gross.  It has Peanut Butter, Bacon, Pickles and Cheddar Cheese, ON a BURGER with a bun! Would you try it?

Although, noone decided to get that burger, the food was absolutely delicious!  Papa was so happy with his Arctic Char fish that he was literally moaning.  Nana had a salad and Flat Stanley chose the ginger carrot soup.  It was all delicious.

“We’re coming back again, VERY soon,” Nana told the nice waitor as she handed him the payment.

We left and drove by a farm on our way home.

Flat Stanley loved tickling the little hairs on the chinny chin chin of the horse.  He was a handsome fellow and loved eating the fresh hay from Flat Stanley’s hand.

The pig was BIG!  Her name was Ezzie, short for Ezmerelda.  What a beautiful creature with her curious eyes, monstrous snout and cute ears.  Flat Stanley was talking to Ezzie for quite a while.

“What do you like to eat for breakfast?” Flat Stanley asked Ezzie; he continued with “I won’t tell you what I had,” sporting an evil grin.  He’s a crazy boy that loves his bacon, and making Nana smile.  I hope this finds you smiling too.  Please subscribe so that Nana can send you an email whenever a new Adventure with Flat Stanley in Massachusetts is posted.
