“Fire it up and let’s roll!” Flat Stanley said when he saw the electricians truck pull up in the yard next door to work on Nana and Papa’s new house.
He went out and took care of the chickens, giving them fresh water and hay and collecting the eggs. Today he had dried mealworms and oyster shells as treats. They do love their treats, and happy chickens make for tasty eggs!
After compiling a dozen in a leftover egg tray that friends save for us, Flat Stanley trotted next door with a swing in his step. He was ready for adventure!
“Hi guy! I’m Flat Stanley,” he announced to the first worker man he saw in the house.
“Well hello there little man, I’m Elliot the Electrician!” he replied with a smile.
“I brought you some fresh eggs, do you need any help in here?” said Flat Stanley.
“Ohh electricity can be a very dangerous thing to work with Flat Stanley, but I’ll keep you safe and thank you for these eggs! My family will love them.”
Flat Stanley was indeed a good worker. He helped him tie the blue line tight into the box that Nana’s washing machine will plug into soon.
Then he had to do some work up high for the ceiling fan that will keep Nana and Papa cool in the summer.
“Louisville slugger coming to the rescue,” Flat Stanley said with a smile as he joined the guys working on the ceiling wires.
When he strung the wire way up high, it was a bit heavy for him and Swwiiisshhhh… down he came flying like a monkey on a trapeze wire.
“Ahhhahahahahaaahhhhh” he hollared like Tarzan.” Do you know who Tarzan is? Well he lived in the jungle and swung from thick vines from tree to tree and he had this most particular shout he did as he flew through the air. Can you do that shout?
“Whew…I think I’ll stick with the ground wiring.” Flat Stanley said after his flight through the air.
So he got down on his knees like Theodore and began threading the wires through the electrical boxes with him. This is where Papa’s plugs will plug in his TV. Papa is excited about his new TV, he says every house should start off with a new TV, and the bigger the better for watching the Red Sox play! He loves his Red Sox baseball team. Do you have a favorite team?
Today, Flat Stanley’s favorite team was Elliot’s Electric Company. They kept him safe and taught him a lot of new skills. Flat Stanley was a really good helper and enjoyed the smiles the day brought. I hope this finds you smiling too. Enjoy your day and thank you for sharing Flat Stanley’s Adventures with your friends and family.
