Knott’s Berry Farm for you not familiar with it started back in 1920 when Walter Knott moved his Family to Buena Park, Ca and began farming about eighteen acres of land, to make a long story short his wife started serving food and selling jams and jellies to supplement their income during the depression and he added a few themed areas around the restaurant to give waiting customers something to do, Today Knott’s Berry Farm is one of the largest theme parks and Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Restaurant serves some of the best food that can be found, the boysenberry is a cross of three berries which was named after a friend of the Knott’s and it is said all boysenberries today can be traced back to Knott’s Berry Farm where it first came into existence, so that is my rundown on what I learned and my suggestion is if you are in Southern California pay a visit to Knott’s Berry Farm, and next time you are at a restaurant and pick up that little package of jelly with Knott’s on the label this is where it came from.
The traffic was not a problem going down there and we actually got to the park gates right as they opened, going on a Thursday we figured the crowds would be smaller than any other day but so did several eight grade graduating classes from almost all over the place, so needless to say there were a lot of groups in matching tee shirts running all over the park, it was kind of cool seeing the few chaperones attempt to corral all the kids with the mischievous smiles shouting instructions that none of them seemed to hear but eventually obeyed as they were supposed to, a bunch of typical kids out for a good time was not a bad addition to our day.
Do You Want To Race) Snoopy looked my way and stared blankly then began to wave, I walked up and asked him if he was going to run he shook his head No, Cindy caught up about that time and was talking with the lady who was with Snoopy, I said last time I was here I yelled Snoopy and you ran, all I wanted was a picture and you ran from me, now it took me five years to get back and I would like a picture, Snoopy pretended he was going to run but turned back for several pictures and laughs which resulted in a moment I don’t know if I should mention because it is kind of embarrassing and just may change the way you look at me from now on, you know how it is when something just all of a sudden happens and by the time you realize it is happening it is too late and you can’t do anything about it, we were standing there talking and Cindy was snapping pictures when Snoopy leaned in close to pose for a picture he looked at me with those big black beagle eyes and: OK I’ll admit it this once---I Kissed Snoopy, there I said it.
Gunman: Are Y’all Happy Or Married?
Me: Both. Gunman: Really? How Long?
Me: Thirteen Years.
Gunman: How Long?
Me: Thirteen Years.
Gunman: I didn’t want you to repeat it I just couldn’t believe you are still happy.
