We're off to see the Wizard....

I can't tell you
how many times I have actually
walked into a movie theatre
since Little Keeper was born ....
Maybe twice?

When my mom called and wanted to take
me to see the new
The Great and Powerful
How could I say no?

When I was a kid
whenever we would go to visit my
great grandmother towards
The Wizard of Oz usually came on t.v.
 at some point during our stay...
I have to say that it was a tradition 
 drop everything
and watch.
Mom or Grandma also made sure they would call down the
road to my Uncle's house 
 make sure to tell him it was on.
I'm not sure now if it was a joke
because he was a grown man...
if he really loved it too!

 I am glad this is the telling of a different part of the Oz story.
I read Gregory Maguire's
Wicked - The Life and times of the Wicked Witch of the West
before it was turned into a musical
and really enjoyed it.
Although when I heard they were making it a musical
I was shocked because there is definitely some content
they would have to leave out!

I wanted to share this old photo
That is my Great Grandmothers house
with my grandma and her Aunt....
Doesn't she look just like Auntie Em?
Whenever I see this 
it makes me think of Oz.....

What are you up to this weekend?


  1. 'The Wizard of Oz' is something of a classic in our household, too! We're looking forward to the new movie's release here in the UK - do tell us what you think of it!

    (& yes - she does look like Aunt Em!)

  2. Sue I thought it was pretty good! I always like when they try and tell the story of how things became the way they are. Some new characters to love too!

  3. Oh Pam, Please let me know how you liked the movie. I so want to see it. I love your photo. I thought of Kansas ight away! Elizabeth
