The Adventures of Uncle Kevin and Flat Stanley: Day 7

On Stanley’s last day in Beaverdam, we went for a run around town. It was already getting dark, but we managed to get a picture at the water tower.

It has been fun having Flat Stanley visit and I wish him the best of luck on all of his future travels.

At GROB, we design and  manufacture machines that make engines for cars and trucks. Flat Stanley saw how I used several different tools including my computer, calculator and pencil and paper while I worked on designing a new piece of equipment.

On our way home from work, we decided to stop and put some gas in the car. Stanley does not often have to stop for gas, so he enjoyed seeing how the gas pump worked.
