What ever happened to the Peanuts characters?  You know, when they grew up?

Lucy Van Pelt –

She went into real estate and was a huge success.  From there she became a developer of commercial property and high end residential communities.  She got rich.  If you partner up with her you will get rich too.  If you can handle it.


Julliard school of music.  Carnegie Hall.  A world renowned pianist.  The neighbors think him strange because he and his wife decorate their yard every year on Beethoven‘s birthday.

Peppermint Patty-

Nobody knows what she does.  She’s tight lipped about it.  She disappears for long periods of time then turns up again.  Some people think she’s CIA.


She’s a three star general.  She says you can’t lead until you learn how to follow and she’s thankful that she learned that as a child.


He has the rare distinction of holding a PhD in both philosophy and theology.  He and his wife (Sally) live a quiet life in northeast Arkansas where he is a professor at a small liberal arts college.

Charlie Brown-

He eventually got a degree in accounting.  He says he never thought he was very smart but he does have determination.  He married a wonderful woman (not a redhead) while still in college.  He still thinks he married way over his head.  He got his CPA and they opened a small accounting business.  They have three children who are happy and successful and have families of their own.

Charlie Brown has had a good life.  Sometimes life can still overwhelm him but when it does his wife is still there to hold his hand.


I’m sorry but Snoopy must be long dead.  Best you can hope for is twenty years or so out of a dog, right?

But there is this reclusive author who is both popular and critically acclaimed.  Nobody ever gets even a glimpse of him.  There are a few signed first editions floating around.  On the inside back cover of each of them you will find…

a paw print.


About Angus Lewis

My wife and I lived our whole lives in Arkansas until ten years ago. We moved to the Kansas City area in 2011 (a job change). That was the reason for the 'From a Far Country' title. Our children and grandchildren were in Arkansas. Six months ago we sold our house and bought one in Sherwood, Arkansas and my wife moved back down here. Two weeks ago I retired and moved back too. (I'm probably going to try to find something part time to keep me out of trouble.) So maybe the 'From a Far Country' title is not so much of a fit anymore. But I think I'll stick with it. I'm still not home. Not yet. The Bible says we are all strangers and pilgrims here. Our real home is with God and some day we'll be there. We'll be home.

  1. Good one. I always wondered. Now, I know.
