Scarecrow: "Pardon me this way is very nice.
It's pleasant down this way, too.
Of course, some people do go both ways."
Certainly, watching the "Wizard of Oz" on TV, sitting on that braided rug in the living room, munching on popcorn and sipping Pepsis on Stevens Avenue always resurfaces fond memories. I must admit the scarecrow, on his search for a brain, was always a character I could identify with in the movie. I like to think it has something to do with my continuing quest for knowledge, while others who know me well might suggest other less lofty reasons. All I know is that it's yet another of these flicks that whenever I cross it I can't help but spend a few minutes with it.
Another of my feeble attempts at recapturing youth?
Who's to say.
Old guy one day.
Youth the next.
Where are we all headed?
Just down the road a piece, I guess.
