Peanuts, the cartoon not the tasty snack, is 61 years old. The TV special first hit the air back in 1965, 46 years ago. I still smile every time I hear the Peanuts theme song and if this video is any indication so do a lot of other people. This video absolutely made my day.

There is nothing more pleasing to me than the sight of a genuine smile. For these good people I wonder what place in time that music took them too? Were they young parents raising their own kids and hearing the Charlie Brown theme through the speakers of an old black and white television? Were they remembering simpler times and the touch of loved ones who have since passed on?

Music is a great conduit that transports even the most cynical of us to other places in time and times in places. I think even if it's only for a minute or two, this music played by these two gentleman made everyone in the room a child again. That is a very good thing.
