Mr. PeanutMr. Peanut died in January 2021. At the time, I was shocked and saddened. Besides that, I was devastated. When I was eight years old, I had a Mr. Peanut bank. It stood about 15 inches tall and was made of ochre plastic. I put coins in his high hat, and later used him for an ashtray. I left him behind in Wyoming and went to art school.
