Hi ho. Sebastian here taking up the story where Ginger left out. Yep, you read that right. She left some bits out. And as a dutiful blogger, I am going to fill in the holes as best I can.
She told me ages ago she went to The Land of Oz when she was much younger – back in the 70’s. I thought Oz was just in storybooks but she convinced me that she had been. Imagine my surprise when she told me that once a year in October, you can actually go to Oz!
“And can you see Dorothy and Toto? And the Scarecrow? And the Tin Man? And maybe even the Lion?”
She assured me that “Yes, you can see all the characters – maybe even a witch!”
“Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go!” I begged. Well, I actually didn’t have to beg much because I think she wanted to go anyway.
The first person we met was Dorothy and Toto. They were very kind and we got our picture taken.
She invited us to visit her house and meet Auntie Em. On the way, we came across a fortune teller.
What a friendly gentleman he was but I don’t think he could really tell fortunes.
The path to Dorothy’s was winding. I started to wonder about all these twisty paths.
Then we came across this lady all dressed in black saying she was looking for Toto. Thankfully, we left our To-To at home. Whew! She consented to let me have my picture made with her so I think she was really nice under all those black clothes. Maybe the sun was in her eyes that caused her to look sort of cross.
I knew we were getting close to Dorothy’s house when we met up with her and the farmhands. What a nice group of guys.
I especially liked them because they looked like they were having a lot of fun! Can you see me perched on the rake?
We finally got to Dorothy’s house. They had a lot of visitors!
This rusty fellow was in the yard. He looked like he had been there for years. Do you see any resemblance to yours truly sitting on his knee?
It’s a very neat house inside – everything’s in order. Do you see Auntie Em in the back?
We got to meet her close up. It’s no wonder Dorothy loves her so. She is very nice.
Then we heard a storm brewing. We rushed into the cellar. Ginger said it sounded like a tornado to her but I wouldn’t know as I have never seen or heard a tornado before. It was very dark in the cellar and it sounded very windy outside!
Oops! I think I heard the crinkle of a cookie wrapper. Let me check this out and I’ll return next time with the best of the story – I mean the rest of the story of our Journey to Oz.
