The Missing Waldo Family

Feeling house-bound as we all are during the coronavirus pandemic, we decided to add some joy to the world. How would we do this? We would build wooden statues, paint them, and put them somewhere publically for people to enjoy.

Reid worked on the smaller of the two statues. He brought it inside to be painted because it was darn cold.
Our completed duo! We just painted them with colors we had. Simple, but effective.
We decided to bring them up to the top of the woods, where the trail overlooks I-95. Here we are before installing them.
Here we are installing them.
And there they are in all their goofy glory! Note the semi going by. Many people honked happily at us as we were setting them up.

But… it was not to last. The next day we went back to see how they were doing, if they’d fallen over in the wind or anything.

They were GONE!

Just totally gone. Not a trace. Not a note, nothing. No mutilated pieces! They had been stolen, abducted, or responsibly cleaned up by a state trooper. We don’t know!

So can you help us find the Missing Waldo Family?

We are determined to spread joy with goofy home-made displays of public art! Want to join?
