Aren't the Olson twins 16 or 17 now??

One thing too...  Alice was supposedly based on a girl that Lewis Carrol
knew, a neighbor's daughter.  Is it possible that neighbor was Alice Olson?

Actually I didn't bring up the partridge or Partridge Family, so I can't
take credit...  Might also be for parakeet if not partridge or parrot?

I'd wondered also if there were some artists out there that it referred
to -- John Parr?

I guess I could see that...

>During the theme song from the show, the members of the family were represented by animated Partridge birds. I do agree that the {cha'-} part of {cha'par} seems sort of random; it might has well have been *{vaghpar}, since I think there were 5 family members, and not 2.

Right.  Though the cha' might just be to keep it similar to the other cha's.
