A force of nature… over 50 and a winner!

I came across a newspaper clipping from 1979… my Aunt had just won a “beauty contest” at her church… she was over 50 at the time and the opposite of what most people would think would win.  Not thin… had  opinions that covered more than world peace and used words that would cause a sailor to blush… a real force of nature!  She had her own views on beauty and that the fact she won… proves she was right!

A stroll down the yellow brick road…

The Wiz toured the US in 1976… so that must be when I saw it.  Not sure anymore why I went but it blew my mind with joy… positive thoughts and fun.  They brought it back to TV live and got it right.

I hated the movie which forgot it was all about the child coming of age…  Going out into the world to getaway only to  discover the value of family that   …when one discovers that snowflakes have meaning and that moment when you want time to be your friend… while you still can return Home!

They got it right!
