Where in the World is … ?

Do you know Waldo?  Do you recognize the iconic red/white striped shirt, the matching bobble hat, those glasses?

Waldo is based on a series of children’s books created by British illustrator Martin Handford.  Books have pictures of numerous different types of people as illustrations with Waldo thrown into the mix somewhere.  Readers of the books are challenged in finding Waldo – thus Where’s Waldo?  In the USA, we love to find Waldo.

In fact, true story – one time mom and my Aunt Tina stopped in a Hooters I believe somewhere in Louisiana.  They were eating, not much drinking had started – snorts, when Aunt Tina spewed beer all over mom laughing.  After mom wiped off, Aunt Tina told mommy three o’clock.  If you didn’t know, that’s girl talk for look to your right but do it without being too noticeable.  Mom looked at her three o’clock and almost peed in her pants from laughing.  A guy was sitting all alone at a high top table and looked just like Waldo – all the way down to his red/white shirt and glasses.  It was too much for them.  They couldn’t stop laughing.  Aunt Tina actually took a picture.  I’m so going to have to find that picture to share with ya’ll.  It was a snort of a good time for those two in Hooters.

You’re probably asking yourself, “Pig, why are you talking about Waldo?”  Well, I’m glad you asked my friends. This brings us to the most important question of the month – okay maybe not the *most* important but close to it.

Where’s Bashful?  That’s right.  Where in the World is Bashful, my international rolling pet stone?

Bashful has taken flight to his next undisclosed secret destination host family.  Where will he go?  What troubles will he find?  What misadventures will he get into?

His time at the Hotel Thompson was cut short this layover.  I think there was a lot of tension in the air between Princess Coralena and Rockelle fighting for Bashful’s affection.  I think Bashful just wanted to get away from both of them to think about what he wants in life.

This time is interesting.  Both ladies are being very polite right now.  We shall see what this separation does for all of them.

So, Where in the World is Bashful?
