For the love of a little bird



Woodstock is the smallest of the Peanuts characters but has a big presence for a little bird. He's a little inept, his flying and logic are erratic, but he can type and take shorthand and usually is game for anything Snoopy wants to do. Although he's the butt of many of Snoopy's practical jokes, he's the beagle's closest friend and confidant- and has made attempts at retaliation. Because of his size and the company he keeps, Woodstock is an accident waiting to happen. Being a bird and tiny, he gets a little insecure around Thanksgiving and big moving objects. He's the only baseball player who gets an automatic walk if the ball rolls over him. Woodstock talks birdspeak only, and finds an alphabet made up entirely of exclamation points quite adequate to express such emotions as distress, frustration and a real temper. His flocking friends are Bill, Harriet, Olivier and Conrad.
The picture and text are courtesy of   Hope I don't get in trouble if I give credit where credit is due.   Charles Schulz was a wonderful man who created endearing characters that reached into the hearts of many generations.  His voice in this world is missed.

My love affair with Woodstock began in 1995.  I really like this character because of his personality.  He is loyal to his friend Snoopy, fiesty, doesn't let anyone take advantage of him, and he manages to express himself with only one letter.   Who doesn't envy his carefree life just a little?  I began collecting Woodstock in 1996.  My first thing was actually a tattoo..  love it.  Now I have a very large collection, too large really, but I just can't stop.
