Fork in the (yellow brick) road


Whenever I hear the expression "Fork in the Road" One image always POPs into my mind.
The beloved scarecrow stuck on his post telling Dorothy She could go this way or that way. (wish I could find that picture)
As silly as this sounds now....when I was a little girl I had a little crush on Scarecrow! I always wished they would have had a 'make out scene'. When Dorothy tells Scarecrow " I'll miss you most of all" OH, how I felt I was watching a love story. If only at that moment he would have pulled her close to him and planted an ExSTRAWdinary passionate kiss on her ruby lips! My little girl heart would have leapt! ooooh la la!
(sometimes blogging is like going to confession!)

Ha! I'll never think of Judy Garland the same again. You can always hope for a remake. I'd bet a Dorthy/ Scarecrow makeup scene would be on the DVD extras.

So cute what we think as youngsters! Love the movie and music as a child. Hated the witch of course. But it was always exciting when it came on! That and topogio on ed sullivan....we were so sheltered!

Love Giggles

I always wanted to be a scarecrow -now I know why! Some say I look like one but I don't care.

Lucy...a confession...I LOVED the Scarecrow, too. Still do, but I've put him and that love in perspective now. Leave it to us to fall in love with the same bunch of straw.
