I love The Peanuts! I always have. It drives my kids crazy when I watch all the holiday specials on tv, so I guess it was a good thing that they were all out on Halloween when The Great Pumpkin came on.
I practically jumped up and down when I turned on the television and there it was! I think my husband may have rolled his eyes and grinned, not sure. He’s very tolerant of my quirks. I think I amuse him with my juvenile joys.
I also love the World War II Flying Ace, out to get the Red Baron. I wanted a picture of him flying his doghouse in battle, but alas, the lonely hero coming home is all I could find.
The Peanuts always remain so innocent in their adventures. Childhood captured perfectly. The adventure. The creativity. The innocence. The faith. The sibling rivalry.
The friends who ruin your hard work……then make you roll your eyes and try not to laugh.
Poor Charlie Brown. No matter what he does, he gets the short end of the stick. It should have been called Charlie Brown’s Law. For those of you who don’t know, Chuck had some trouble with the scissors making his costume and then he got a rock at every house they went to.
And then there is Linus, still waiting to see the Great Pumpkin. Don’t you sometimes wish we could all be a little more like Linus? Well, we can. Hold on to your hopes and dreams. The Great Pumpkin is coming. It may not be in the form you are looking for, but it’s still real.
It just about killed me to write this post in this font (KaiTi). I do not like it at all. It is not whimsical enough for Charlie Brown. Perhaps font is more important than I thought. It’s not just about being easy to read, it’s about the feeling it evokes. I may be losing my marbles.
