Maybe I Should Be Dorothy Gale This Halloween . . .

What do Dorothy Gale and I have in common?

A love for sparkly, red shoes?

                                                           Yes, of course,  but that's not all.

The ability to break into song when meeting a live scarecrow?

Well, no.  That would just be Dorothy. Although, I do sing a very lovely, if off-key,  version of Scarecrow's If I Only Had a Brain, especially when I lose my keys.

What about a herd of munchkins that follow us around offering us already licked-on lollies?

Well, obviously that is true for both of us.  Although I am fairly certain that Dorothy's little people were always fully clothed and potty trained.  Just sayin'.

No, the main thing that Dorothy Gale and I have in common is that . . .

we both survived getting into tornado ready position and lived to tell about it.

Although, truth be told,  I took some clues from Dorothy and did not retreat to my bedroom where I got bonked on my head by a shutter. Nope.  Not me.  Instead, when I heard the blaring tornado sirens, I grabbed my half-naked munchkin and hightailed it to the basement with my iphone. 

Grab what's important, remember?

Rest assured.  All is OK.  We just had a wild and crazy afternoon.


  1. You and I must be close or we just think the same. My whole posting yesterday was about the being in the land of oz, with a little Pink Floyd on top. Hope all is better for you today.


  2. It's always so much better to tell the tale than be the tale... Good thinking on the iPhone -- Maybe an apple or two, the next time?... Come visit when you can...

  3. Yesterday's weather was crazy all across the country!

  4. Yesterday's weather was CRAHZY! I was not a fan of all the tornado warnings and such we had.

  5. Yikes! Scary! Glad that you are ok! It was super windy here in LA but definitely no tornadoes here!

  6. Oh my gosh! I think that I would freak out. I would make all my kids get into the bathtub and put the mattress on top of us. Isn't that what you are supposed to do? If not, then we would all suffocate for sure.

  7. So glad you're okay!!

    I was Dorothy a few years ago... but with a stripper twist. I called myself Horothy. Classy, I know.

  8. I'm glad you're all ok! We had tornado watches all afternoon and evening but no actual sightings.


I love, love, love to read your comments!
