Crazy for Peanuts…

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

It’s been another long expanse of time between blog entries. I chalk it up to the summer/pre-school crazies. We went on our first real “faraway” family vacation since about…hmm, ’03? We traveled to Northern CA and had a great week spending time with relatives and sightseeing. My husband and I managed to escape on an overnight side trip to Napa as well as to the Charles Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa.  For anyone who grew up idolizing the creator of Peanuts like I did (uh, is there such a thing as a cartoonist who hasn’t?), I highly recommend seeing this wonderful homage to the late great Schultz.


Many thanks to Justin Thompson and Stephan Pastis for our tour of the Schulz studios as well. It was an incredible experience.

*As a side note, it’s the first time I’ve EVER taken off more than 3-4 days at a time without feeling stressed. In other words, I’ve finally managed to work far enough ahead of my deadlines that I don’t hyperventilate over making up for lost work time. I can’t tell you what a relief that is. Now back to the drawing table…
