Came home after a real cruddy day to a surprise package from my sister. It had adorable school pics of my niece and nephew. (And yes, I'm biased.)

Plans to see a friend soon. :D
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Yesterday actually: my middle son got home from school and came over to me, gave me a kiss and said "You're a good man, Charlie Brown." From him that's huge.

It's the little things sometimes, isn't it Love History? My Dad had nicknames for us when we were children. Your post made me remember him calling my brother Charlie Brown. *smiles*

When I was younger all my family had names from Peanuts. I was Woodstock, mom was Snoopy, my brother was, you guessed it, Charlie Brown and my sister was Lucy (she was just like Lucy, it fit!).

It's the son most like Charlie Brown who has the tendency to perseverate on Peanuts. His name is Charlie too. Sometimes I wonder if he thinks of his little sister as Sally. He used to call for Linus during his meltdowns. I always found that rather amusing in spite of the circumstance.

I once took a Peanuts characters quiz and got Schroeder. Something about my genius offsetting my neuroses. :D
