If this is Monday, it must be Oz

I am enjoying watching people post themed photos on blogs, and Mondays are “Mellow Yellow.” What could be more mellow than a trip to Oz?

Last summer we drove across the US (I blogged every day or two so you can read about it on the postings from last June and July) and one of the places we passed through was Liberal, Kansas, home of the land of Oz. In the complex there are artifacts and furnishing from the late 1800s and early 1900s as well as a house constructed to look like Dorothy’s and a large enclosed area with sets to look like Oz.

A documentary film was made about this attraction showing the young women who play Dorothy and lead people through Oz and how their aspirations to see the wider word mirror hers. I would love to see the film someday.

Here’s Dorothy telling us about her house (note her anachronistic ruby red slippers):

and here is the famed Yellow Brick Road (this time marked with the names of people who donated money for the building and upkeep of Oz.)
