Where's Waldo?

So I had this awesome conversation with Erin on Sunday about Where's Waldo. You guys remember Waldo? He was that strange guy that would always go to huge raves and dress out of place. He sporadically showed up in group photos; he was always peeping out of random areas.

Well, Erin was telling me about a classmate of hers that came to school on picture day dressed as Waldo and when the yearbook was done, he had hidden himself in some of the photos and would go circle his picture when he signed your yearbook. That is genius.

Well, this begs the question: Where's Waldo? He was so popular when we were in grade school and now it seems like the books where kids find stuff has disappeared. I would love when a new Waldo book would come out and I would try mercifully to determine where that guy was. And does anyone remember his dog Spot? That was such a clever name. I love that guy.

That is all,

He had a girlfriend too, but I don't recall her name! I also loved the Where's Waldo and miss him terribly! I wonder where he is... perhaps in Ancient Egypt or a future space station...

Trin, you didn't tell me you were reading the Alvin Maker series! How do you like them?

Trinity said...

I really liked Seventh Son and so far Red Prophet has been really good. I haven't gotten too far into it yet but it won't take me long.

Waldo is the best! We should start a petition to have new books made, or maybe we could come up with some coporate training that incorporates Where's Waldo concepts - we could be millionaires!

Thomas, I had to check on the girlfriend's name - she was originally called Wilma and later had her name changed to Wenda. What would I do without Google?
