Flat Stanley and his cousin, Flat Joe

Flat StanleyLOOK, he's here. I told you a few weeks back my cousin Joe was coming for a visit, here he is! I'm sooooooooo excited. I want to introduce him to you....People this is Joe, my cousin. Joe, these are all the people I've been telling you about.
Flat JoeCome on Joe, we'll unpack your suitcase later. We've got places to go, people to meet, and things to do. We'll make it an early night since you came so far; you'll be tired probably. Joe traveled special priority mail all the way from Summerville, South Carolina. He traveled 516 miles, wow. The car ride was 11.5 hours long.

He's telling me all about Summerville, sounds like a place I'd like to go someday. Summerville's called "Flower town in the Pines". Doesn't that sound pretty? He says it's pretty with flowers everywhere, but mostly Azaleas. People have Azaleas in their yards, but there's also planted in lots of public gardens. In fact there's an "official Azalea Park" that tourist come to visit every Spring. They have a farmers market on Sat. mornings with lots of wonderful fresh produce. Even though they're near Charleston it's a cozy town and not a busy busy hectic kind of place. They have lots of parks and plenty of recreational areas. They even have a large sports complex with lots of things to do.

When the little town was rebuilding after The Civil War, they were hit with an earthquake in 1886. But that didn't dampen the spirits of the neat people who live there. They continued to build a prosperous wonderful community to live and work in.
Flat Joe's webpageI'm gonna help Joe unpack and settle in now, but if you want to read more about Joe, look at his web address above. Be sure and come back soon, so you can read all about Joe's adventure here in Ohio with his cousin, Flat Stanley....that's me course!

  3. Good to meet you Joe. Glad Flat Stanley has a friend and some company. Our Mom used to live right near Summerville, SC and it is a very pretty town. It would be a great place to live. They do have gorgeous flowers all over the place.
    Have a wonderful week end.
