A Girl Named Stanley

Check out my latest at the Partial Observer. Excerpt:

Supposedly as a young family in the late 40's, at least one person recalls working with father Stanley at a furniture store in Ponca City, Oklahoma. But nobody remembers mother Madelyn or daughter Stanley Ann.

And Stanley Ann went by "Stanley" until college, when she switched to "Ann."

There surely must be a 66 year-old in America who remembers a girl classmate named Stanley sometime between the first and seventh grades, even if just for a year. The name alone suggests she's not one to be forgotten.
