So yesterday's post was probably a bit heavier than normal, and a lot of a downer.

I went over to that great bastion of international commerce,, and decided to see what passes for a Snoopy toy there these days.

It turns out that Amazon has my Snoopy, right down to the big sewn-on eyes.

It did my heart good to see that. Some kid out there is grubbing around in the dirt under a tree with her own Snoopy toy and having a blast.
Even a year ago I probably would've dove on this and gotten it to relive childhood memories. But just seeing it there, with the same proportions and same smile, made me happy.
Snoopy rocks and more kids should watch Charlie Brown before he becomes a lost cartoon.
