    I bet one of them is the Van Gogh.

    I think that it is Charlie Brown who would be lost without Snoopy.

    I think of all puppies, ole Snoop is the last one to have to worry about Charles…He has many hats…

    Just what is the origin of that expression, anyway?!

    Poker. Having an ace in the hole is having a reserve card…sometimes hidden up the sleeve. As someone said of Gladstone, he didn’t mind that Gladstone always had an ace up his sleeve, but he did object to Gladstone claiming God had put it there.

    While I enjoyed your Gladstone reference, I’m afraid you are mixing up poker vernaculars. An ‘ace in the hole’ refers to stud poker where one or two cards are dealt face down and remain that way until the end of the hand. Since aces are usually the highest cards, having them hidden from one’s opponents is often an advantage. The practice of having aces up one’s sleeve is cheating.

    Yes, thank you, I know that. Having a card face down is surely in reserve?

    Maybe Snoopy means there are neighbours who would feed him, if Charlie Brown couldn’t.

    .
    Stud poker: A card face down is not “in reserve”, it’s part of your hand. It’s your “hole card” in 5-card stud, or it’s one of your two “hole cards” in 7-card stud. Hence the phrase “ace in the hole.”

    To have “several” aces in the hole would surely be cheating, though. I take “several” to mean more than two. :-)

    Yup… One thing you oughta know by now, Charlie Brown, is that your dog is nothing if not resourceful!

    I always wondered how Snoopy acquired the Van Gogh. Either he has an equally impressive bank account, or he stumbled across it after being shot down over enemy occupied France, or he masquerades as a ‘cat’ burglar in his spare time (sorry about the pun) ;)

    Definetly not…his lively spirit and michief doesn’t match with apartment life.

    Lucy and Linus might be reluctant, but Rerun would love to take Snoopy in.
