    well – if gramma “sneaks a smoke” and falls off the wagon – he gets his blanket back (only fair)

    I dont know, Linus…but something doesn’t seem right…I dont know if I’d believe Lucy…she’s up to something…

    Ya, this sounds like yet another evil sister trick. No way I’d believe it. And I certainly wouldn’t give it to HER!

    Gramma will never make it.

    Why not? My husband quit cold. No gum, no patch, no nuthn’. He quit almost 9 years ago, after having smoked for over 30 years.

    My now ex-wife quit like that. I was never interested in quitting but I would never have been able to do it like that. Oddly, about fifteen years later, she started up again. My doctor always says I should quit, but refuses to prescribe anything so I figure he isn’t serious about it. ;-)

    Anyone remember in the cartoon when Lucy said she buried his blanket? Then Linus went through the worst withdrawl. Made me wonder if Mr Schultz ever had a similar experience with that portrayal.

    That’s certainly resonant with “Happiness is a warm blanket, Charlie Brown” which on another note, I believe was pretty excellently produced.

    Well we could give Linus an E-blanket but with his wet thumb could likely have his hair standing on end!!

    Gee I love this comic strip! Hey everybody, do you think I should get the books “It’s a Big World, Charlie Brown” and “It’s a Dog’s Life, Snoopy”, or wait until they come out with the 24th volume of The Complete Peanuts? (PLEASE answer, somebody.)

    My wife had a heart attack Jan 1, 2001. When they were wheeling her into the emergency room on the gurney, she looked up at me and said, “This should be you here!”
    .
    She never smoked and I quit that day, forever…

    Three attempts at cold turkey. I knew I had it beat when smoke started smelling bad instead of good.

    For another take on smoking, consider this from a January 1992 strip: Snoopy’s brother, Spike, is reminiscing alone in the desert. “When I was little and I said my stomach hurt, Mom would give me milk and honey. If I had an earache, Dad would blow cigar smoke into my ear. I wonder where he got the cigars?” (Personally, I wonder why a dog was smoking cigars in the first place!) Has anybody heard of this? Was it an ancient home medical remedy, or did Schulz think it up?

    Take your pick from the many responses (one even said, if smoke doesn’t work, use urine). The remedy preceded Schulz.

    How many want to see Linus giving Lucy his blanket-by wrapping it around her throat like a garotte!
