When Linus Met Sally and Other Famous Fictional Couples


You have to be pretty hard-hearted to not get a least a little lump in your thought when you think of some of fictional couples. But have you ever stopped to think just how these crazy lovebirds ever got together? The answers may surprise you.

Linus and Sally
Linus Van Pelt and Sally Brown
According to the comic strip, Charlie Brown’s sister, Sally was born on May 26, 1959 where Charlie marked the occasion by passing out chocolate cigars to his friends. She grew up quickly. She took her first steps on August 22, 1960 and she fell in love with Linus, Lucy’s brother, on the next day. It was love at first sight, at least on her part. Sally has often referred to Linus as her “Sweet Baboo.” Her dedication to her man seems endless. She has missed out on “tricks and treats” by sitting in a pumpkin patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin and she was incensed that Linus would snub her a Valentine’s gift in favor for his teacher, Miss Othmar. Still, she clings hopelessly in love with the stripe t-shirt-wearing Linus.

I Dream of Jeannie
Tony and Jeannie Nelson
The astronaut Captain Tony Nelson met Jeannie on a deserted island in the South Pacific on September 18, 1965 in the premiere episode of I Dream of Jeannie. Nelson’s one-man Stardus One space capsule landed far from the planned recovery site where he found a strange bottle. He opened the bottle releasing a genie who had been trapped inside for 2,000 years. At first, the two could not communicate until he wished that they could. Unbeknownst to Tony, Jeannie rolled her bottle into his duffle bag and “followed” him home. At the time, Tony was engaged to his commanding general’s daughter, Melissa Stone, but the two broke up.

I don't know what criteria they used or how they came up with the order. Do you think that they got it right? What would have been your #1 choice?

Colton Dixon Surprises Wife with an UBER Serenade for Valentines Day

Talk about your cross promotion! As I understand it, UBER teamed up with On Demand Serenades who teamed up with Hershey’s who teamed up with Christian singer Colton Dixon for one one-of-a-event and if you don’t live in Nashville, you probably didn’t hear about it.

On Friday, February 12, those living in Nashville could connect with UBER (an alternative taxi service for those who don’t know) and request a special “serenade” option from 12:00-3:00 p.m. For $20, UBER would send out local singers and musicians to serenade the couple in an impromptu performance. Each serenade came with a box of Hershey’s Deluxe chocolates, so the price was right.

According to a press release, singer Colton Dixon was the first person to order a serenade. The country trio known as Sister C, showed up at Revelator Coffee where newlywed Colton was enjoying a beverage with his new bride, Annie. (And the photo doesn't look posed at all!) The couple were wed on January 8 in Nashville.

All together now: “Ahhhhh…”
