The game I can't get enough of

I can't help it. This whole "Where's Wink?" thing brings me joy. When my brother was little, and I was but a preteen, I loved reading books to him. Our favorites were Richard Scarry books. This is before "Where's Waldo?" because the precursor to those were finding the Goldbugs in the Richard Scarry books. We'd flip the pages and search diligently for Goldbug, a little figure among many on the wonderfully playful spreads. Anyone remember the pickle car? Anyway, there perhaps is an explanation for why I love "Where's Wink." And with that? Here's the latest. Wherever could she be? (the flag was out in honor of 9/11)

It's time for another game of Where's Wink?

Liam & I play find the goldbug all the time. Richard Scarry books are brilliant.

My favorite Richard Scarry character was Lowly Worm. I love the lens you are using on the photo. (Or is that Photoshop?)

Heather: I think we had a carrot car to play with too. But what I'd give to have that pickle car on my desk....so great!

Will: I love that you play that with Liam. Richard Scarry books ARE brilliant, I concur.

Marie: You hit the nail on the head sister. And as for your vision, you never know....

Anonymous: It's crazy fun isn't it? Am I going overboard with it? It's the tilt shift app on the iPhone. Yes, these are iPhone photos.

Goldbug! That is a fond memory!

I used to have a Mr. Frumble driving his pickle car toy. I wonder if it's still in a box somewhere.

Sometimes Qubo or OPB still cycles a Richard Scarry/Huckle Cat cartoon. Huckle and his sister solve mysteries around Busy Town.
