“`The home of  Peanuts creator Charles Schulz burned to the ground in this week’s deadly Northern California wildfires. Thankfully, his widow escaped the blaze. Schulz built the West Coast split-level home in the 1970s, and the cartoonist lived there until his death in 2000.

                    CHARLES M. SCHULZ     SNOOPY

“`Schulz usually worked at an outside studio,  and most original artwork and memorabilia are at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa, which escaped the flames.  Jean Schulz is the current president of the board of directors, created two years after the cartoonist’s passing.

“`Schulz had long ties to Santa Rosa and Sonoma County. The Santa Rosa airport is officially named the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport, and features bronze sculptures of the Peanuts characters. Its logo is Snoopy flying on top of his doghouse; the Sopwith Camel.

“`Fires in the Northern California wine country have killed at least 40 people, since they began on Sunday, and wiped out thousands of homes and structures, including wineries, resorts, and whole neighborhoods. Prayers to the victims and the first-responders affected by the blaze.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
