Where’s Waldo, you ask? In Pasadena, of course!

Where’s Waldo, you ask?  In Pasadena, of course!

          Not much makes me feel older than my impending birthday on Tuesday, except for the fact that this July, Waldo (as in your favorite red-and-white-striped traveler) turns 25 years old.  25!  I remember being absolutely frustrated by each puzzle; the beach, the museum, the  amusement park- each one tricking me with the strategically placed [...]
