written for Cool Eddy and Linking up to Story Telling Sunday over at Sian's Place
Let me introduce you to my friend Cool Eddy. He also happens to be my nephew. That is him with his Momma learning how to cast his fishing pole from last summer when they visited.
See they live like 12 hours away by car so it's not like he pops around to see me all that often.
Cool Eddy is in first grade where they have cool projects like reading about Flat Stanley & making your own version.
Flat Stanley if you don't know from personal experience is a boy who was flattened by a blackboard and is so thin he can visit lots of different places usually through the mail. He's pretty cool, but perhaps slightly naughty.
Cool Eddy recently mailed Flat Eddy to our house for a visit. Isn't he cute? I texted my Sis in Law to find out what he was holding in his hand. The response was a skateboard. I am thinking that the other item might be a hockey stick since we are big on that here nearly in Canada. ;-)
Flat Eddy is not naughty one bit. He was a bit on the cold side when he arrived so we had to make him a sweatshirt.
See North Carolina where he lives is wayyyyy warmer than Northern NY where we are just now starting
Here is Flat Eddy with his new sweatshirt riding Patti our dog. Patti might not be enjoying the ride as much as she could seeing that she prefers to do only things that she has thought up herself.
Now, Flat Eddy HAS had a bit of fun here in Northern NY. He watched the huge tractor plow our field the other day. Well, it's not really "OUR" field, but is the field in front of our house hence it's mine to look at. Love having barns on either side of us as we're country dwellers!
And earlier this week he helped us move the wood pile from Point A to Point B. See, being country peeps, we have a wood stove that we use to heat our house. There is a lot of wood cutting that happens here in the summer & fall. That means spring involves taking last year's wood that is left over and moving to the front to fit the new wetter stuff behind it. Fun times! Poor Flat Eddy did not get to see any mice. Sometimes there are mice hiding out in the pile, although we did see four or five huge night crawlers.
He is also getting to enjoy spring AGAIN as we are father behind than North Carolina. Lucky him. Spring is such a hopeful time of year and paper people can't get mosquito bites!
All this has been fun for Flat Eddy, but he is looking to take a virtual visit to your house via your pc. If you could, leave me a small comment and tell me where you're from and what things are like in your neck of the woods. Cool Eddy would be VERY appreciative. And hopefully this will score him a big fat A on his project!
Thanks for hanging with me and Cool Eddy!
