Did you know that it's the 70th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz? Our theatre was doing a special showing last night, so we went to see it on the big screen. I was riveted to my seat. Seeing this movie for the first time is one of my most vivid childhood memories, and even though I've read the book a couple of times, along with Wicked and its sequels, there's something about the movie--the surreal, candy colors of Munchkinland, the sweet conviction of the characters, the loveliness of the ruby slippers--that just gets me every time.
Speaking of ruby slippers...check these babies out. I'm pretty sure Dorothy wouldn't have been so willing to hand these over to the Wicked Witch!
