The late, great Charles Schulz and his cast of characters are at the forefront of my childhood memories. From my prized Snoopy lunchbox, to the collection of mini hardcover Peanuts comic books(still at my dad's house), to my love of the holiday specials, you could never go wrong with Charlie Brown and the gang.
When my son played travel ice hockey, one of his opponents was the Santa Rosa Flyers. Well, lo and behold, in Santa Rosa resides the Charles M. Schulz Museum. My family and I spent our downtime walking the halls of this wonderful museum admiring Mr. Schulz's early pieces and the history of Snoopy and his friends. I was like a kid in a candy store!
Now, what does this have to do with SB and the work I do? Well, not too much, to be honest. However, the memories which bubbled over on my visit to this museum may be similar to those you have when you visit a battlefield or historical site for the first time. Never lose that feeling...
I leave you with some words of wisdom from Linus,"There are three things I've learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin."
Now, go eat some candy!
