Snoopy's Home Ice Arena

Snoopy's Home Ice Arena was built by Charles Schulz and his family as a gift to the community. It opened in 1969 for events and for public skating.

Outside the Snoopy's Home Ice Arena, Charlie Brown stands guard in full hockey attire.

A giant happy Snoopy is the first thing one sees when entering the arena.

Betty and Alice cannot resist having a picture taken with the happy Snoopy.

Beautiful stained glass skating Snoopy.

More stained glass skating Snoopy.

Even the truck has the skating Snoopy image.

Entering Snoopy Museum

The museum is located at 2301 Hardies Lane in Santa Rosa. It is nested in a residential area that is not obvious to tourists. Next to the museum in separate buildings are a cafe, an ice skating rink and a gift shop. Here is part one of Betty's trip to the museum.

The full name is Charles M Schultz Museum and Research Center but it's more commonly known as the Snoopy Museum.

Charlie Brown stands at the entrance in front of the museum; he is a lot bigger than Betty.

The entrance foyer of the museum, one of the few places where photo-taking is allowed.

This is one of the few paintings that may be photographed.

Another few pictures for photo-taking.

Go Green!

Green finger nails and green toenails, who could that be? Why all green?

Here is the answer, it's Rita, the best show secretary in the world.

We don't see Rita relaxing at the show table much these days; in Reno, she enjoys herself as an exhibitor. Look at her nails!

Rita and judge Nancy and her Best Of Breed white Satin.

Rita and judge Nancy discusses the results after the Satin are done.

It's very seldom that we see Rita not working hard at the show secretary's table. She is the best show secretary in the world. Rita does the secretary work for most of the shows in No. CA and she also did the secretary’s job for the ARBA convention in San Diego in 2001 and in Louisville in 2008. She will be doing the same job this year in San Diego and also in 2010 for the ARBA convention in Minneapolis.

For the month of June, she is working on the San Joaquin Fair. Since the scene of the fair is "Go Green", Rita goes green with her fingernails and toenails.
