There's No Place Like Home

"The Scarecrow listened carefully, and said, 'I cannot understand why you should wish to leave this beautiful country and go back to the dry, gray place you call Kansas.'"

'That is because you have no brains,' answered the girl. 'No matter how dreary and gray our home are, we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country, be it ever so beautiful.  There is no place like home'

The Scarecrow sighed.

'Of course I cannot understand it,'  he said.  'If your heads were stuffed with straw, like mine, you would probably all live in the beautiful places, and then Kansas would have no people at all.  It is fortunate for Kansas that you have brains."

Do you consider Kansas a dry gray place?
Do you have a favorite place in Kansas?  Check out our blog for some ideas.
Do you agree with Dorthy that "there is no place like home."?
After living in other places, I found myself wanting to return "home" to raise my children in a place and culture I understood.  How about you?
Who is your favorite character from the Wizard of Oz?  (mine is scarecrow)
What is your favorite rendition of the Wizard of Oz?  (I love the movie with Judy Garland and the sci-fi mini series Tin Man)
If you've never read the books, I recommend you do so.  I plan on reading through the entire series.  (There may be more updates as we go along.)
I can't wait to see Oz The Great and Powerful in theaters.  What about you?
