At the risk of appearing proud, this honor is far too great not to celebrate with my faithful readers. All three of you. By the way, I love you. Truly.
This past week while at work I received notification that I was a finalist. A finalist. This tremendous honor blew me away. Apparently I made the cut from a list of distinguished nominees.
I know that one is not supposed to jockey for position but needless to say I began lobbying. Like my friend in New York ,Andy Buck, who helps movies win Academy Awards , I went all out. I wanted this bad. I live for this kind of thing.
After much deliberation, I was selected! I promise to be the most amazing Flat Stanley Lady EVER! Send that guy Shreveport and we will have incredible adventures. I want him to meet the mayor, go fishing with Jack on the Red River and ride on a Mardi Gras float!!!
Thank you! I am humbled beyond measure!!! And I’d like to thank all the little people…I mean the little person who thought that I deserved this high honor.
In the end, there are no little things. The little things you realize ARE the big ones.

Congratulations, Jinny! That is quite an honor and well deserved….especially if you can get Flat Stanley into the Mayor’s office and onto a Mardi Gras float! And, yes, it is the little things in life that really hold the most importance.
Cute, cute, cute! Judy
I once was in charge of Flat Stanley’s travels. With the help of my son, and some friends, he traveled to Marine bases and even to Iraq and back. We customed made a uniform for him and awarded him with a combat medal although he saw no real action. He did visit injured in an Army/Air Force hospital. Then he had some much deserved leave time in Oahu. Good to know he’ll now have fun in our great state of LA
