When I was a kid, the first comic strip I ever remember reading was Peanuts. My parents had all of the comic strip collection books when I was growing up. I would sit and read them for hours. I quickly became a fan of all things Peanuts. I had books, posters, toys and even record albums. Do you remember those?
My parents bought me the album for the Halloween special and the Christmas special. I listened to those records so much, my mother thought I was going to wear them out! One Christmas, I wanted to do something special for my family. I was about 8-years-old at the time. So, for two weeks, I memorized the entire Christmas special. On Christmas Eve, I told all of my family to gather in the family room and I performed the entire special with my record acting as my musical cues. It was my first major performance! My wife and daughter still laugh at me, because I still say all the lines under my breath when we watch it on television.
