Oct 29th, 2017: Snoopy’s Base
♫ Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was rollin' out the score ♪
♫ Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree
Of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany ♪
♫ In the nick of time, a hero arose
A funny-looking dog with a big black nose ♪
♫ He flew into the sky to seek revenge
But the Baron shot him down--"Curses, foiled again!" ♪
Did you ever wonder where Snoopy’s home field was.
Well, I’m here to edumacate you.

Snoopy's Base might also be Charles Shultz's home which burned down in the fires of a few weeks ago.

You mean the Red Baron caused that fire.

Living in the same neighborhood as Charles Shulz widow was a cartoonist named Brian Fies. He's drawn the story of their evacuation and loss that's really good. I recommend it highly.

Fies' story was in yesterday's Santa Rosa paper.
My granddaughter teaches at a pre-school just across the creek he mentions, perhaps a third of a mile from his burnt home.
Once they were able to reopen they discovered about one quarter of the staff and kids are homeless.

Yeah, like a war zone. Friends and neighbors who might help you if your house burned can't, they're in the same boat.
Friends of a friend lived in LA when Katrina was coming. They packed everything they could in the wagon and split for a relatives in GA. Their neighborhood was in about 9 ft of water so they couldn't go back. I bought the two kids bicycles because that's what they missed the most. If only adults were so easy to make happy.
