The Land of Oz

Dat 68

To me they look like a bunch of emeralds, not what it really is water drops on my car windshield. Water drops on the windshield mean it is raining, but emeralds must mean I am in the Land of Oz! Which would be way better than standing in the parking lot at work, getting wet trying to take a picture of the rain on my car. I have a confession, the movie Wizard of Oz scares the pants off me, not just when I was a kid, now, yes I mean now. The first time I remember seeing the movie we were at my grandparents house in Florida, I may have been 5 or 6 and my parents were going to let me and my brother stay up late and watch. It started to go downhill for me right from the start, when mean old Miss Gulch took Toto from Dorothy, I didn't like it one bit, then oh no, Dorothy got hurt! Then it switched to color, what the heck is with that? If you think about it there are so many things in that movie, the Wicked Witch, the Munchkins, those creepy flying monkeys, the guards at the palace even the Wizard, the Tin Man, Scarecrow and Cowardly Lion, are all pretty creepy. I watched it that night, I liked the music, and have watched it many many times since,  I mean seriously, it's a classic. The thing I do remember as the most fun was sitting on the floor, wide eyed, in front of the tv, with my brother, both of us in our jammies, and acting as cool as a cucumber because I was the older sister and I couldn't be scared. I bet if you ask my brother, he would say he wasn't scared of those monkeys either.
