Pass the Peanuts Please! #7

Good grief, Charlie Brown! My kite got stuck in a tree. I spent all day Wednesday getting it down and now I missed the day to post my blog about you and your friends. Arghhh!
In Santa Rosa is a long-standing icon. The Flamingo Resort Hotel & Spa. Opened in 1950, it is notable for its large, revolving flamingo atop a 50-foot pink tower.



The flamingo purchased 8 Peanuts statues and has 3 or 4 in a display case in the lobby. The remaining statues are spread around the resort. Anyone can visit the resort and take pictures of themselves with the statues.

Right to Left, top row: Say Hey Charlie Brown (signed by the Giant's Team Members); Good Grief, It's Superman; Good Grief, It's the Holidays Charlie Brown; middle row: Joe Cool Tennis Pro Snoopy; Entrance to the Flamingo Resort; Boom shaka laka laka Joe Cool Snoopy; bottom row: Joe Cool King Tut Snoopy; Joe Cool Giant (also signed by Giant's Team members); Yellow Bird Racer, Woodstock.  


Hmmm…would a name change for the resort be Peanuts? A giant Charlie Brown rotating on a 50-foot tower?

Naaah. Nice dream though.

Here's the answers to last week's question: What did Marcie call Peppermint Patty? Sir What did Peppermint Patty call Charlie Brown? Chuck

The winner is Terri from QuiltNCards She made a sweet comment about Peppermint Patty: "I did admire that [Peppermint Patty] takes care of herself and her Dad, and plays a really good game of baseball. I don't admire the D- that she gets in everything, but given her situation at home...it's kind of a given.
"And that crush on Chuck - and he doesn't even notice...
(heartbreaking)." 

Here's this week's question: What was the original name for: The comic strip? Charlie Brown? Write your answer in the comments below. The answer will be in next week's blog!
