I was sad yesterday; the bench was bare both times I checked for another painted rock. The hummingbird flew away, along with my note to the artist. Would another Peanuts Gang kid return? Perhaps Woodstock would fly in and make an appearance! My anticipation grew as I waited for today.
On my way to the pool, I glanced over to the bench and saw nothing. “Oh well,” I muttered to myself, wondering if they were gone for good.
As I drove up the street, I glanced over to the bench near the first hole of Sun City Peachtree’s golf course and saw a painted rock! Has The Peanuts Gang gone on tour?
After my swim workout, I noticed another rock on the bench around the corner on Del Webb Boulevard. I cranked a quick U-turn to see who was getting wet in the rain. It was Linus and Snoopy, from April 4th! I continued towards home, and, although I didn’t get out of my car this time, I stopped to get a glimpse of the rock on that bench near the golf course. I think it was Pig-Pen!
The Peanuts Gang IS on the move, touring Sun City Peachtree! I headed up the street to the bench by my house to see if one of Charlie Brown’s other pals was there. Glancing out the rain-splattered car window, I could see the red piano! It’s Schroeder, gracefully playing some bars of Ludwig van Beethoven!
I quickly made my way home, parked the car; and, grabbed my camera and umbrella. When I arrived at the bench, Schroeder was too engrossed to look up.
Schroeder never bothered acknowledging Lucy van Pelt, either, except to express annoyance at her leaning on his coveted toy piano. (It was Lucy who was so infatuated with the talented prodigy, not Sally as I previously stated, (and then corrected, in a previous post.)
I never felt sorry for Lucy’s rejection by Schroeder, because she was so darn mean to poor ol’ Charlie Brown. What goes around, comes around, Lucy!
Well, thank you, Schroeder, for bringing some sunshine to my heart on this dreary, rainy day! I hope one of your buddies visits tomorrow!
