Our visitor, Stanley Weim

hiya friends! On Ma's forum, they have a game like Flat Stanley going on. Stanley the Weim is on a tour of all the WA's for a week or so each! We just had our visit from Stanley the Weim and here is Ma's post about it:
We got Stanley early June and I wanted to bring him SO MANY places... We spent time in NYC during my work week... He was a great commuting partner and waited with me for my bus and walked with me from the Port Authority to my job (1 mile)! We saw 42nd Street (BBKings, Yankees Store, Madame Tussauds and Ripley's Museum) Then trekked through Times Square. I could not beleive how many of NY's finest would NOT pose with him for a picture . We had to settle for a shot near the NYPD building in Times Square which is in the opening scenes of NYPD Blue. Then, it was off to Rockefeller Center where he took in the tourist sights. The rink is closed for summer, but he graciously posed in the gardens and with the famous Atlas sculpture. We walked across to 5th Avenue for some chi-chi shopping and a trip to St. Pat's cathedral... there was a graduation going on inside so we had to take pictures outside. We walked back over to Rock Center and he checked out Radio City Music Hall which is next door to my offices... then off to the second floor @ 1290 Ave of Americas... the hallowed halls of Rolling Stone, Us Weekly and Men's Journal! Stanley loved the hall of covers and posed with me in front of my FAVORITE Bruce Springsteen cover from the 70s! I mean a trip to NJ would NOT be complete without some Bruce! Stanley also helped my do some retouching at my work station and supervised from atop of my monitor all day. After a long day and a quick bus ride back to NJ, we spent the evening in Petco assisting my hubby during Dog Training and he got some Natural Balance treats! He really wanted to pose with Haze and June but they are not good with stuffies so, he was just as happy to go back to his "crate".
He was disappointed that he could not go to any events in the famous Meadowlands, but maybe on his tour, he might make a second trip this way and get a chance then!
He gets a pin for his collar everywhere he travels to...His pin from his visit with me is a blue pawprint--it's Blue's paw. There were so many landmarks and touristy pins to buy, but this just seemed appropriate. Also, I got him a passport. I entered in each person so far with their city and state. Once his tour is over in OCtober sometime, his owner will have an AWESOME set of mementos from his travels!

Here is a slide show of his visit (Again p-bucket is bass ackwards)
