Frieda (with her “naturally curly hair”) stopped by to keep Marcie company, today, on the Sun City Peachtree bench!  Although, at least it looked that way…

More likely, Frieda wanted to show off her beautiful head of red curls to Marcie and (try to) make her jealous.  She is that vain!  The thing is, none of her friends, including Marcie, are jealous of her hair; she just thinks they are and wants to brag about it.  Marcie is too down to earth, though, and Frieda’s hair doesn’t register on her radar.

Frieda is so all about her “naturally curly hair,” that she refuses to wear a baseball cap while playing on Charlie Brown’s baseball team.  She couldn’t possibly cover up those gorgeous curls!

The vain little redhead also has a nasty streak with Snoopy.  She has called the pooch “lazy” and “useless,” because he would rather sleep atop his doghouse than hunt rabbits like other beagles.  This gave Frieda the idea of buying a cat to motivate Snoopy to get over his laziness; however, “Faron” ended up being even lazier!

At least Frieda is nice to Charlie Brown and Linus.  She doesn’t tease them and is sensitive to their feelings.  In fact, Frieda is the only one of the kids that doesn’t tease Linus about his security blanket.  Good on her for that!

As for Frieda’s relationship with Lucy, although they got off to a rocky start, they became friends.  Frieda and Lucy are both outfielders on Charlie’s team; so, during baseball games, they always get distracted chatting with each other, rather than keeping their attention focused on the game.  Oh well; at least it keeps Frieda’s attention off her naturally curly hair!


It is a warm and beautiful day, so I was sure another Peanuts Gang would appear on the bench in all its painted glory.  I first saw Charlie Brown, several days ago (although, I didn’t photograph or write about him), and then Linus and Snoopy followed.  Yesterday, Peppermint Patty came to visit, so who would be next? 

Today, it’s Sally Brown, Charlie’s little sister!  After reading up a bit on Sally (to fill in the holes of my spotty memory), I was reminded that her crush wasn’t Schroeder, as I previously stated; it was Linus van Pelt!  How could I forget?  (Due to my error, I edited my previous post.)

Ah, yes, Linus was her “Sweet Babboo,” much to Linus’s dismay and embarrassment.  Sally’s devotion to her crush was unwavering, though, even when Linus yelled in exasperation, “I’m not your sweet babboo!”  Was it her nickname for Linus that irritated him so much, or was it that Sally kept trying to get him to give up his blanket?  Poor Sally was hopelessly devoted to her “Sweet Babboo;” however, the blanket won out as Linus’s main squeeze.

Who will be next?  Will there be an Act 4?  In addition to the other pals of Charlie Brown that I previously mentioned, Linus and Lucy had a little brother by the name of Rerun.  Will he ride in on the back of Mom’s bike to grace our Sun City Peachtree bench?

There is also the pony-tailed Violet Gray and Shermy, Charlie’s bud before Linus and Schroeder came along.  Perhaps they’ll make an appearance.

Personally, I’m hoping to see Woodstock, Snoopy’s little yellow bestie!  Stay tuned!
