Happy Birthday Peanuts


The Peanuts Comic strip, written by charles Schulz, first appeared in newspapers on October 2, 1950.

I'm a tad like Lucy:

"Lucy Van Pelt works hard at being bossy, crabby and selfish. She is loud and yells a lot. Her smiles and motives are rarely pure. She's a know-it-all who dispenses advice whether you want it or not--and for Charlie Brown, there's a charge. She's a fussbudget, in the true sense of the word. She's a real grouch, with only one or two soft spots, and both of them may be Schroeder, who prefers Beethoven. As she sees it, hers is the only way. The absence of logic in her arguments holds a kind of shining lunacy. When it comes to compliments, Lucy only likes receiving them. If she's paying one--or even smiling--she's probably up to something devious."

Only I'm not bossy. I just know what you should be doing.

I have yet to see some of those traits in you, but that shining lunacy part is a bit familiar ... ;D

That's me too, except I'm not devious. All Lucys in the world unite! :-)

Do you charge a nickle for all that great advice you dole out? I love Peanuts too. You may be smart and cunning like Lucy, but the deviousness is missing.
