Flat David comes to visit

Duncan and Flat David hanging out on the balcony

We received a large envelope in the mail.  We opened it up and discovered .... "Flat David"!

"Ice-cream cake?"
My nephew David Camps-Johnson lives in Salmon Arm.  His grade 3 class had been reading a story about a boy named Stanley, who, flattened by a falling blackboard, is able to mail himself around the world to visit different friends and have different adventures.  

The teacher decided they should make flattened versions of themselves, and send them off to explore!

Lucky us!  Flat David had arrived for a visit to Victoria!

His timing was exceptional, as he arrived in time to celebrate Duncan's 13th birthday on March 5!

One thing flat David noticed was that, unlike most of Canada, Victoria was not covered with snow.  On the contrary, in March, Victoria is green! 

Well...not TOTALLY green.... there is also lots of yellow.  Yep, the daffodils are already growing in the backyard!

Stay tuned for more of the adventures of Flat David!


  1. Love it! Keep having fun flat David and family.

  2. I haven't seen Bonnie or David in a very long time. Just today, I was wondering if they had gone to Victoria to visit with Rebecca, Steve, Duncan and Alex. Indeed David's parents should be doing a better job of feeding him though. He is very very flat! Have fun with Duncan David. Let me know when you arrive back home.

  3. Hey Duncan! I want Flat David's piece of ice cream cake. I know he didn't eat it. I heard he was dairy intolerant.

  4. LOL. That would explain the weight and size of Flat David. His doppelgänger that lives at my house is non-dairy intolerant. Yep, pizza again tonight.

  5. I am reading about flat David in Port Montt, Chile.

    Wish he were here with me.
