Burned

Peanuts Tarot ~ Tower

Oh Snoopy.
If you follow their life you know this isn't just a shell, it is full of Stuff! From a fandom site:  contains or has had attached the following: A TV antenna, a color TV set, a birdhouse, a recreation room, an air-conditioning unit with extra door, space for seven children, a guest room, a pipe and deerstalker hat, a basement, a den, a closet with a faulty latch, a clock radio, an electrical outlet, carpeting, Snoopy's beloved Van Gogh painting, (replaced by an Andrew Wyeth painting when it was destroyed in a fire), a pool table, a stairway, boxes of empty soda bottles, more closets, flooring, counter tops, a library with fluorescent lights, a ceiling mural painted by Linus, a ping pong table, a potted philodendron, a basketball hoop and net, a shower, silver candlesticks, a grandfather clock, a cedar closet, books, LP records, a pair of pinking shears, ceramic tiles, a stairway, a set of dominoes, a photo album of every supper dish that Snoopy has owned, a postage meter, a servant's entrance, a teakettle, a picture of Tiny Tim, a stereo, a stained-glass window, a carpeted front hall, a bottle of cologne, a waffle iron, a supply of TV dinners, electric socks, a formal suit for a turn-about dance, a whirlpool bath, a downstairs refrigerator, a CB radio, an automatic door, a fishing pole, a hat for wearing whilst fishing, wading boots and bunk beds. A room with exercise equipment, sports equipment, lockers, awards and trophies; and a lab with a bunsen burner, flasks and distillation equipment.

The house was built in 1951, Burned in 1966. I've had friends who set about replacing every single thing, others that in the end were relieved in some respects. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

  1. My friend who lost her house (and two sheds full of antiques) in a tornado saw it as a do-over to make her life simpler.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
