It Was A Short Summer, Charlie Brown
School starts today here in our neck of the woods.
I found this cute "Peanuts" book by the late, great Charles Schulz at a thrift store. Back when we were kids, school NEVER started before Labor Day. Who knew back then that that would ever change?
A short summer, indeed.
The book "It Was A Short Summer, Charlie Brown" is a cute little story about the Peanuts gang and their adventures over the summer. They all went to camp, and the boys kept trying to beat the girls at SOMETHING, but didn't do very well. This left them all feeling rather disgruntled. They did get to roast marshmallows, though:
And generally speaking, Snoopy did better at camp than the rest of the gang - he usually does, right? Better at the marshmallow roasting:
Fixed his own good meals:
Slept in (or rather, on) his own little private tent:
So, as far as the start of school goes, summer is over.
But not technically - not for another month - so at least there is still time for me to hope for an opportunity to enjoy S'mores at some point before summer truly ends.
I miss S'mores.
And, for that matter, I miss Snoopy and Charles Schulz, too.
