We're off to see the wizard

We're off to see the Wizard.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

 Dawn & I set out early Saturday morning on our way to the North Dakota State Fair in Minot. Where we met up with Dorothy and the rest of the gang from "The Wizard of Oz" We  journeyed down the yellow brick road (parade rout) past many fans and spectators.

 Dorothy tried to keep Toto safe in his basket but at one point he was snatched away by the flying monkey. The munchkin chased the monkey down and returned Toto to Dorothy.

 The lion had to fight off angry spectators placed in the crowd by the wicked witch with his mighty fists "Put em up, Put em up"

 At last we made it to the Emerald City (Fair grounds) where we spoke to the Wizard. The great Wizard was able to grant our every wish (Free Fair Tickets) and with three clicks of her Ruby Red Slippers Dorothy led us safely back home.

That was one of those classics that we used to watch every year around Christmas time, when I was growing up and still love to watch to this day!
