Do you like the rain?: Not really, when I was in the Marines, we used to call rain "infantry weather" (I was in the infantry)... "if it ain't rainin', we ain't trainin'!). I'm getting too old for that kind of thing now.

Glenda did it for me, hangin out with all those helium sucking munchkins? She was totally scary.

Gunfighter said...


Glenda was kind of scary with that weird voice!

Thae wicked witch, though... even today she makes me want to pull an Elvis and shoot the friggin' television.


Janet said...

My mother loves the Wicked Witch, we give her tons of witch-related presents. I don't remember being scared by that movie, but I would think it would have been the flying monkeys if anything.

I've copied your meme again. It seems to be the only way I ever update.

Gunfighter said...

Kathleen, darling... you weren't supposed to admit to it!
