We're Off to See the Wizard

As I was driving Christin to work today she started telling me about how Brigette, her boss, was going to see The Wizard of Oz tonight. It was the 70th (that's right, the 70th!!) anniversary of it so they were having special showings. I really didn't think it was that big of a deal, but then Christin started talking about how it was such a cool thing because no one in our generation has ever seen it in a movie theater. And just like that I am looking for tickets when I get home. So my friend Starlee and I went.

Even though I am sure I have watched the movie in its entirety before, I really didn't remember most of it. It was a lot like my first time seeing it, almost like a new release for me. And it was great. I enjoyed it quite a bit more than I thought I was going to. Maybe I'll even save my ticket stub.

Oh, Brado. I love that you appreciate those types of things in life. I makes me a little less fearful to have a son.

My little pretty!!!!
It is a great movie and I remember watching it on TV when it FIRST came out or so I thought because I am NOT even close to 70. Maybe I saw the first TV release. We were amazed because we got to watch it on my Papa's COLOR TV! It was one of the first ones, a huge old Philco that took up half the living room wall and was only about a 20 inch screen, but it was the BOMB! Glad you got to see it and tell Starlee I said, "HEY".

The first tv release came out in '56. Yep. You'd be amazed at how much useless Oz trivia I know now.
