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 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.

TobyMac Shares New Single, Hands Out Vinyl Records

TobyMac fans line up for single release party.

First there was vinyl records. Then came 8-track tapes. Then cassette tapes, CD’s, MP3’s, streaming music services…and then vinyl became cool again. Those of us of a certain age already knew this of course, but many of us gave away our old records anyway and now regret it. But I digress. Anyway, TobyMac did a very “cool” think last night in Downtown Franklin. He gave away limited edition vinyl 45’s of his new single in two years, “I Just Need U” at single release party. (You have to wonder how many of the youngsters knew what a 45 was.)

The seven-time Grammy® winner once again collaborated with Bryan Fowler alongside Finding Favour's Blake NeeSmith on “I Just Need U” which was digitally released today and the cover animation video is already trending at #17 on YouTube.

"It feels so great to be back in the studio again working passionately on songs that will hopefully meet people right where they are," shares TobyMac. "'I just need U.' is where I land time and again after my futile attempts to handle life on my own. I AM a born defector learning every day that the sweetest place and the only RIGHT place for me, is turning back and falling into the arms of a loving God."

TobyMac will once again bring his dynamic “HITS DEEP Tour” to 29 markets this year, alongside a talent-packed line up including Danny Gokey, Mandisa, Ryan Stevenson and Finding Favour. Kicking off at Oklahoma City’s Chesapeake Energy Arena in late January, the “HITS DEEP Tour” will wrap in mid-March after stops in San Diego, Denver, Seattle, Minneapolis, San Antonio, Birmingham and more.
