The task of introducing the world to this member of the Chard clan has fallen upon my shoulders. It is daunting task but, someone must do it. World: this is Stefan. His true owner is Marcos but all Chards know from whence he came. It was the mid 90's and it was family movie night. The movie was "Clifford" - a mildly well received comedy with the star being non other than Chard family favorite Martin Short (before he went all weird and whoever that character he is now). He played a role that not many 40 year old actors could play and have the audience believe, the role of a ten year old dinosaur obsessed boy who causes mischief. The mischief he causes he always blames on his precious dinosaur, Stefan. It is hilarious and oh so fun.
Before Marcos left on his mission (correct me if I'm wrong Quitos), my mom gave Stefan to Marcos. It was for fun and kinda a joke:) Stefan, however, became part of the family and kept Marcos company while he was in Spain. Stefan has accompanied Marcos and Danielle to their beloved Disneyland and before my mom left Marcos sent him with her. Mom and I had the best time with Stefan in tow. He saw what we same and even with the crazy looks from all those around - he visited the sites - with pictures for proof. Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego has become - - - - - Where in the world is Stefan! For a few posts you readers, all 10 of you :), will get the chance to seek him out and find him in some pictures - - - some will be obvious and others will be a challenge . . . .
Let the games begin - - - - tomorrow!
