    Cool Charlie Brown plays the `ukulele

    Found a statue of Charlie Brown and strapped the KPK tenor onto him.0347charliebrown2.jpg
    There are lots of these around town, I might try and dress each on up with an `ukulele and take a photo!

    Reminds me of a game I used to play with people all across the country. We'd photograph our scooter in front of some landmark, you know, like an outhouse or something of significance, and post it on a scooter forum for others to try to copy. I was a blast, for a while. We called it Scooter Tag.
    Hmmm... ukulele tag? I dunno...

    The one time I was in Santa Rosa, I remember seeing all of the Peanuts Characters around town.

    I think it was cool that the Powers that Be chose to recognize Charles Schultz in that fashion.

    oh - Nice photo, BTW.

    I think there is another Charlie Brown stationed on the sidewalk by a great little cafe that serves breakfast and lunch by the old train station that is now a coffee house. If you take a photo there and eat one of the great omelettes there, take a picture of that one.

    I use to work for a company located in Santa Rosa.

    Heh, heh. Just hit my funny bone...
    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.
