Flat Jack Writes Home

Standard

If only I had brought my swimming gear.

Mom would not let me pee on this rock. She said something about Sacred and Profane and Arrest.  

There are some very funny looking hoomans in Ireland. 

Mom would not take my picture with Bonnie of Enniskillen. I think I am in love. 


Wish you were here. Until next time. 

Love,
Flat Jack

Flat Jack’s Pilgrimage

Flat Jack really gets around. Recently he has been seen in Cape Cod, New York City, Berlin, Warsaw, Budapest, and Vienna. 

He is leaving soon for a pilgrimage to Ireland, where he hopes to meet an Irish Wolfhound. 

Real Jack and Arya wished him luck and supervised all the packing. Bon Voyage, Flat Jack!!

The Travels of Flat Jack

Standard

Last year, Flat Jack traveled to Scotland with his mom. He called home using an old fashioned phone. And he had a picnic in the Scottish countryside.


Later on, Flat Jack went on some trips with Auntie Deborah.  He loves to travel. He even went to Scotland again. But much of his travel with Auntie D. has been in the west – Arizona, Oregon, etc.

Flat Jack travels on airplanes, on trains, in buses, and in cars.  He can go on foot or on bike.

Flat Jack would love to go with you on your vacation. If you would like to take Flat Jack with you:

  • Print out one or both of these images of Flat Jack.
  • Glue the image to a piece of cardboard and cut around the dotted lines.
  • Pack Flat Jack to travel with you.
  • Take pictures of Flat Jack and send them to Mom through Facebook. Or email to jack@betharichardson.com.

Jack and Arya, You’ve Got Mail!

Dear Diary,

Mr. Squirrel is not the only one who is bad at writing Thank You Notes. Our Mom is, too. We got The Best Package from our Auntie in Oregon and Mom still hasn’t written our Thank You Note.

The Package had Fun Stuff for our Moms. And even Treats for them. (They never get treats like we do.) And we got some New Clothes in the package. Jack got a raincoat and I got a sweater. We like our Auntie in Oregon. She has Lots and Lots of Cats. We would like to play with her cats. (Well, my brother would just like to chase them. I would like to play with them.)

This is a video of us sniffing the new clothes.

Jack can’t wait for it to rain so he can try out his new raincoat.

I think Hoomans are Very Nice. Especially the Hoomans Who Like Dogs. (And Cats. And even Squirrels.) Mom says The World would be a better place if there were more Hoomans Who Like Dogs. (And Cats. And even Squirrels.)

Until Next Time. Love,
Arya
