…AND, ANOTHER LITTLE RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS (Act 7)

Today, it was Charlie Brown’s close pal, Shermy, smiling up at me from the bench of little random acts of kindness.  Although Linus was Charlie Brown’s main man, Shermy was his next closest bud in the early years.

Back in the ol’ days, Shermy was always there for Charlie when the going got tough; and, once in a while, he filled in at first base on Charlie’s baseball team.

Here’s a bit of trivia for you:  Shermy was named after Charles M. Schulz’s high school friend, Sherman Plepler and was one of the main Peanuts characters before Linus and Schroeder came along.

You wouldn’t have seen much of Shermy in the animated TV specials after the 1960’s, though.  By then, Shermy had wandered out of The Peanuts Gang.  He later disappeared from the comic strips as well.

Thanks for coming back to see us here at Sun City Peachtree, Shermy!  It has been a long time, but it was great to see you again!

  1. I told a work pal about this, because she loves Peanuts. She told me that leaving these rocks “is a thing”, and that you’re supposed to pick them up and trade them around with the other ones. Have you heard anything about that? What a kick. Try it! XO

    • I was familiar with the popularity of leaving painted rocks in random places; however, I didn’t know about the rest. In the early days of lock-down, I was picking up those little painted masked cuties, bringing them home to photograph, and then leaving them in other places in the community. Little did I know that I was doing the right thing!
