    For most kids, that would be the truth. I always hated that the teachers seemed to expect that all the kids would have something interesting to write about, like a trip to Europe or something. Most people couldn’t afford to fly when I was in elementary school, and road trips are NOT FUN – they were torture in those days.

    Come now Linus, you did more than read comic books and watch TV. You played baseball on the worst team in you’re area. You hung out with your best friend, giving him advice that is a thousand times better than he gets from the “5 cent psychiatrist” of the neighborhood. You took Snoopy on a secret mission that turned out to be his surprise birthday party. Biggest thing you did all summer was put up with your sister. And that’s never easy with girls like her. With girls not like her it’s easy, to a breeze, to highly enjoyable. Don’t ask her what you did over the summer because she’s clueless.

    Dum-Dums (especially the delicious root beer flavored ones) and activity books (no, I don’t mean plain and simple coloring books, talking books with coloring pages, mazes, word searches, maybe some math, maybe some simple crossword puzzles), and in latter years activity packets my mom came up with made road trips a lot more fun. Of course there was the age old problem of riding in the back seat with siblings.

    It makes me laugh that he has to ask Lucy…and she tells him without being mean….I also think most kids do things like this instead of going on vacations….So no biggie, just write it all down, Linus..that’s fine….

    I usually turned these compositions into book reviews of everything I read over the summer…usually needed several pages.

    My younger sister spent 1 summer in a cast from her neck
    to about mid thigh after having surgery for curvature of the
    spine. Then she wore a Milwaukee brace for 2 years!

    My mother used to find me these huge jumbo Activity books. Between that, a reading book, being told to “stay on YOUR side” by my sibling, and singing along with the radio (“the station’s going out…let’s find a new one!”), I always loved the family road trips. The last one I went on (I was 17) took 3 weeks and we went as far as El Paso, TX from New England, with stops in NY, DC, Atlanta, New Orleans, Houston…among others. Best. Trip. Ever!

    Hey Linus, go as Brian Williams for some ideas … he’s got a great imagination!

    Ah yes, the joys of AM radio…remember it well.

    I bet he also spent time sitting on the floor sucking his thumb & holding his blanket.

    No summer camp this time? Oh, yeah — they’re full of queen snakes! Getting chomped by a queen snake would make for good material, at least….

    That’s pretty much what I did this summer.
