Hi ho. It’s me again – Sebastian. Now where were we? Oh, yeah. We were in the cellar at Dorothy’s house. After the wind died down, we went back upstairs and found everything in disarray.
We went out the door to find that the house had landed on the Wicked Witch – see her striped stockings. How scary! Not the witch – the stockings!
There was a coroner on the porch who announced “she’s not only merely dead, she’s really most sincerely dead.”
It was then that we saw the Yellow Brick Road. “Follow the Yellow Brick Road.”
First we met Glinda, the Good Witch with Dorothy and
then we met some munchkins!
One of my favorite new friends is the Scarecrow. I get the feeling you couldn’t have a better friend. He was funny and talented too!
We passed these funny little houses – can you guess who lives in them?
Soon we met up with the Tin Man who was a little stiff from rust at the beginning. A little oil in his joints fixed him right up. He let me sit on his shoulder.
Isn’t he grand?
I wonder if this sign is really necessary. What do you think?
Soon we met up with the Lion. How do you like him? I thought he was fabulous!
We continued to follow the Yellow Brick Road. Follow follow follow!
After all that following, I needed to take a break so I found the nearest mushroom for a quick rest.
Then we met up with the witch’s guards.
I saw those weapons up close and let me tell you, they were sharp – or at least they looked that way to me!
They told us we could go and visit the Wicked Witch. I wasn’t sure it was a good idea. Thankfully we got out of there without having to throw water on her.
Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Lion and the Scarecrow were all together and they were more than happy to allow me to have my picture made with them.
This is Ginger and the Scarecrow. He was a very good one too. He could skip and everything.
Finally we arrived at the gates to Oz. Ring the bell! Ring the bell!
The gates were opened by a very grumpy gatekeeper who consented to let us in.
We were able to meet the Wizard at long last! It was so much fun.
Now I know what they mean when they say “It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters in the end.”
