I'm really resonating with Charlie Brown and his little Christmas tree this year...
After a memorable day at the Charles M. Schulz museum with my beloved daughter and wonderful cousin last week, I've been reflecting anew on the incredible artwork, humor and social conscience of this wonderful man.
This pic of Snoopy was one of the first images my eyes fell on, and I was immediately tearing up. Apparently, that happens "all the time" there. It was made more poignant by the recent anniversary of losing our Jackson, and as I started talking with the docent about that, she told me she'd had to put down her staffie-bull just a year ago, and had to say goodbye to her bull terrier the very next day after we were there! Doesn't the universe work in wonderful ways.😪😌 We comforted each other... I cant explain why, after living in Sonoma County since I was 19, and raising Erin here, I've never been to this fantastic place! I can't recommend it too highly, (and I decided to start ice skating again after visiting the ice rink across the street).
They've done such a wonderful job. And who doesn't love Peanuts?!
There are some fun interactive things to do, a large room full of no-caption comic strips, many more with captions, INCREDIBLE artwork, even the bathroom tiles are comic strips! And they have a little theater in the museum where we watched A Charlie Brown Christmas, as well as a wonderful film about guide dogs, who Schulz and his wife have been involved with for decades.
The final photo is the 1968 version of a stuffed Snoopy. That's exactly who I've had since I was 10 years old (a month after we suddenly lost our dad!). Really special. And you see how memory evoking it is to go there.
I'm sure it triggers some for you as you read this.
Hope you enjoy the pics.❤️🎄 #charlesmschulzmuseum #peanuts #charliebrown #snoopy #linus #beagle #thencamethedog
