It's not something I have been vociferous about since I entered adulthood, but yes, I am a huge Peanuts fan.
This week, Charlie Brown celebrated his 64th Birthday!
I didn't really fathom this however, until I was perusing my various social media accounts and stumbled across the AMA section on Reddit, where none other than Jean Schultz herself was answering questions about Peanuts and the whole franchise, including details on the new Snoopy Movie which is to be released next year.
What a lady! I had goosebumps as she described her husband's drawing routines, his views on copyright and also his health issues, of which I had no real idea.
Plus, it's pure joy.
Old Sparky left us with a lot of that.
Thank you, Charles Schultz.
In honour of Charlie Brown's big day, here are some of my favourite Peanuts quotes!
