Woodstock expanded his nest.
Dizzy Birdburg Metroplex?
Someone has been flying around the freeways near large cities it seems. And here I thought that Woodstock had trouble flying.
A highway to a nest
Woodstock’s from Joisey?
Woodstock’s nest is now as big as a city? Nine is a whole lot of exits!
That’s a big nest
love that look on Snoopy’s face!
I think Schulz is poking fun at Santa Rosa, California, where he lived when this was drawn (1973)… and until he passed away.
So did I, and still do…. not that I ever met him.
At that time, Santa Rosa had only about 50 thousand residents, but as you approached on the 101 freeway, which he would have done often, a sign said “Next 9 Exits.”
We all thought that was funny.
I guess we needed them, though, because the town does stretch somewhat “vertically” along the freeway, which is still the only direct North/South route through it….
though now it’s more like 180,000 people…. and I think 11 exits.
Apparently we only needed two more for the next 130,000 people.
I think Woodstock got himself a little timeshare.
I came upon a dog of God
He was walking along the road
And I asked him, where are you going
And this he told me
I’m going on down to Woodstock’s nest
I’m going to join in a rock ‘n’ roll band
Woodstock’s Nest, a nice little health food store and restaurant. Fun place.
“Woodstock’s Nest”… Wouldn’t that make a great name for a little independent motel along the highway?
That’s a lot of walking.
It’s like the approaches to Gettysburg PA from the north. the road curves around the town and you have to know which exit you want for the town, the college or the battlefield.
All roads lead to Woodstock…
….followed a right turn at the first light, then drive down 5 blocks and make a left. Drive over the train tracks and make a sharp right turn. Woodstock’s nest is on the tree 3rd house to your left
I drive in Pennsylvania and I often pass a sign saying “Endless Mountains Region: Next 6 Exits.” I always think, “If it’s the Endless Mountains, shouldn’t it be ‘Next ∞ exits’”?
What about gas stations and restaurants for the next 9 exits?
Woodstock is on the highway of life!
Woodstock’s nest is a major city?
Very enterprising sparrow, that W….
Would’a thought people would just fly in.
Probably better to not know or notice the exits.
