Somewhere Over The Rainbow


I'm off to see the Wizard! The wonderful Wizard of Oz. Her name is Jennifer and she lives in Atlanta. I'm bringing my dog Toto, too.

I hope the Wizard can find me a heart. And a brain. And courage. Then, I hope the Wizard will help me find a way home.

For the journey, I'm bringing pretty girl-clothes. I don't know if or when or how I'll be able to wear them but, as they say in the Boy Scouts, "Be prepared."  I'm ready!

It's time to sing a song. Sing with me if you know this one...




Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

  5. This comment has something to do with your blog today...Last night I went to a concert that was a tribute to Judy Garland. The singer was Hilary Kole. http://hilarykole.com/ If you are a Judy Garland fan, and EVER have a chance to hear her with her band, don't miss it. Superb!
    Have a wonderful trip!

  15. I love you Ally - there are so many things to love about you. I've been scarce, posting, but not reading or commenting.

    I think its wonderful that you and Maura are friends. I'm on good terms wit my ex's. Its so much easier. Just because it didn't work out, no need to hate each other.

    Love the red shoes!! OMG - I think 'm in love with them in fact.

    Hope you have a stunning week.

    Hugs
    Wendy

  23. We do see things differently as we repeat our journeys -- and view films again as adults. Now, having worked as a script nurse with a Hollywood script doctor, I marvel at how a torch song became a child's song -- with the addition of 'lemon drops'. (I also see the emu beside the cottage in the woods. Why an emu?!)

    Enjoy your adventure. Skipping is encouraged!
