Happy National Mulled Hot Cider Day!
(Although I prefer mulled wine...;))
First, a random bit of trivia I learned from Ask Shagg, (See, dad? You CAN learn stuff from the comics page!) There are no squirrels in Australia! How sad for the Aussies. :(
Secondly, there really is light at the end of the tunnel as the outage is winding down! Yay! Time for some much needed recreation for Mr. Snoopynut beginning with the annual LaFayette Apple Fesitival! If you are reading this from the CNY area and have never been, you MUST go if only for their magnificent apple fritters. Pictures to come in the future if I can remember. There are not too many things better than a cool, crisp, sunny fall day in upstate NY with a box of apple fritters and a cup of hot cider. OH MY GOODNESSSS......
A couple more random things: our traditional cute cat video; and a crazy article I found on Yahoo of some people who call themselves highliners. OMG 2!
And how can you not love a face like this? And yeah, he rocks that coat WAY better than any human.
Now for the comics, once again backed up from a week ago. Sorry. Hehe. First up is Mike du Jour, a comic that's not always that funny but I like it mostly because it's drawn funny. Charles Schulz said a good comic is simply drawing funny pictures. So if you see a comic that's been around a long time but isn't always that funny, now you know why. That doesn't explain Prince Valiant, though... Mike du Jour (This one's for Mike M!)
Ollie & Quentin rarely needs explanation. Just a darn funny comic, Mr. Baker!
As you may or may not know, the Snoopynut loves stuff like UFOs and the unknown so Ralph Hagen knocked one out of the ballpark with this one! Hehe.
Mutts is one of our favorite comics of all time. It's not only drawn funny but also often shares our philosophy about nature and mankind. Here are two about the current fall season; the second being one I cropped and used as my desktop! (The center picture.)
And lastly a couple from the master himself, Charles Schulz, celebrating fall. The first one reminded me of Bradley the other day when a breeze was blowing some leaves off the trees and one landed on his butt which made him jump and spin around! What a hoot! The second is just funny!
Every so often, Mr. Snoopynut, a family member, or friend will ask me for a picture of something from our past that we or they've talked about, so if you will indulge me, here is a blast from the Snoopynut past! These pictures were taken from our boat, the Snoopy Too, in Charleston Harbor in South Carolina in 1986. Quite often we'd get a chance to see dolphins swimming around our boat and in one of these particular pictures, I caught Daisy as she is freaking out after seeing a slew of them! Dolphin 1; dolphin 2; Daisy & the dolphin

Happy Halloween (A Day Early)!
Yeah, so it's been awhile! We decided to take some time off since Missy did. Who's Missy? WHO'S MISSY?? You really haven't been paying attention, shame on you! ;) Missy is the person we get our "Days" from! You know, Underwear Day, Yell at Your Boss Day, Hermit Day, that kind of thing. Ok, so I made those first two up...
The good news about such a time lapse is that there's all sorts of fun new stuff to share all at once. Let's see...
First off, how about a quote? We all love those! How about one appropriate for the season? "Never knock on Death's door: ring the bell and run away! Death really hates that!" ~ Matt Frewer, (aka Max Headroom)
Since we're talking about Halloween, how about a sneak peak of the snoopynuts' jack o' lantern for this year! And here he is all lit up for the evening...but beware, he's scarrrryyyy!! (Lobotomized and carved by Mr. Snoopynut and hand drawn by the Snoopynut.)
My good friend, Mike, found this fantastic Snoopy made from pumpkins and other such squash! Thanks, Mike!
And just for giggles, here is a funny little fish I drew recently and then took into Paint and colorized him. I think he came out rather excellent!
And lastly, for anyone who has been under a rock and hasn't been keeping updated on Snoopynut.com, tomorrow is the final day to get your Santa letters for the lower price of $4.00! Get 'em in by midnight and we won't stalk you! Bwaaaahhahaha!!

Happy Halloween, everyone! We hope you have a fun filled and spooky Halloween! To celebrate this most fun of occasions, we are sharing some of our favorite Halloween comics from our online subscriptions! (Comics Kingdom & GoComics)
Happy First Day of November! What a special month this is -- birthdays, National Peanut Butter Lovers Month, upcoming holidays, first snow. Woohoo! As you know by now, (and if you're a new visitor, it will become apparent!) we like to celebrate things here so in order to celebrate this most special day, here is a picture of our first pumpkin pie of the season, handmade by the Snoopynut, complete with whipped cream and caramel sauce. Yummm!!!

Happy Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day!
(Welcome back, Missy!)
Things are going swimmingly here in Snoopynutland! The leaves have all been taken care of; a lot simpler these days with our new lawn mower. Very minimal raking. We haven't had any snow yet but it's a'comin'! I say that but we really can't count on snow every year or even every Christmas anymore. Typically we receive about 180" of snow a year starting in late November/early December, getting the lion's share in December. We usually have several feet on the ground by Christmas. But about 4 years ago we not only had a green Christmas but a green New Year's, green Valentine's Day, green St. Patrick's Day and green Easter! Highly HIGHLY unusual. But that was our third green Christmas in the 20+ years we have been here. Good thing there's no global warming. ;)
Just one little pressie for you today and that is a quote from Richard Gere who has a huge fan in the snoopynut. He grew up in North Syracuse and we pass his high school every week! We're proud of you, Mr. Gere!
"I know who I am. No one else knows who I am. If I was a giraffe, and someone said I was a snake, I'd think, no, actually I'm a giraffe."

Belated Happy Birthday to me!
And an Early Happy Birthday to Mr. Snoopynut
Whose Birthday is Tomorrow!
They say it's your birthday...it's my birthday, too!
All in all, a pretty perfect day. Sun was shining, roads were dry, (whew...can't always say that this time of year) and excellent company! Thank you for a wonderful day, sweetie! Bet you can't wait for yours tomorrow. ;)

We apologize for not updating in a couple of weeks. When Santa letter season arrives, as well as all our holiday preparations, it gets a little crazy around here!
We woke up to an inch of snow today, just enough to make everything a pristine white. We got about 10 inches last week from the storm that crippled Buffalo but it only took a couple of days, (one being 65 degrees) to melt all that. So here we go again, we're ready for you Old Man Winter! I think.... :P
Looking very much forward to this holiday season. Our trip to Santa's Workshop looks to be a fun one, staying at a rented vacation home with mountain views only 5 miles from North Pole; Lights on the Lake on Onondaga Lake; visiting Hafner's; the Everson Museum of Art's Festival of Trees and perhaps a visit to our friends up north, Gananoque and Kingston in Ontario, Canada. We always love going up there during the holidays!
Below, you will see an image of Snoopy's idea of a great Thanksgiving meal. We have always wanted to do this but the lure of Quorn cutlets and gravy, my mom's stuffing, candied yams, mashed potatoes, peas, rolls, squash, cranberry sauce and wine never seem to let us! ;) Cheers!
