|Yes, he has his own airport!|
|It says Redwood Empire Ice Arena but everyone|
around here knows that it's Snoopy's Ice Arena
|The Charles M. Schulz Museum|
One of the most popular attractions in Santa Rosa are the statues of the various Peanuts comic strip characters that are placed around the city. Each year or so a character is released and organizations or businesses can purchase one of the 4 foot statues and decorate it however they like for display. So far they have released 32 each of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, and Woodstock. People come from all over the world and follow maps provided by the city to locate each statue. (No, I am not kidding.) My favorite by far is the Charlie Brown that is displayed in front of Sonoma Outfitters, a local supplier of outdoor equipment.
|Who wouldn't love a reggae Charlie Brown|
complete with dreadlocks?
I guess it is no surprise then that when I was thinking of a new name for my latest tangle that some Charlie Brown inspiration would creep in. Even though I think Charlie Brown looks pretty cool in his reggae get up he is normally seen in his trademark sweater.
Thank you Charles Schulz for the inspiration!
