Ooooooooops! I Forgot ~ PART 2 ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Gala!

This has become so typical for me, lately...
Forgetting things ... quite often ...

So, why should my
Wizard of Oz Gala
post be exempt?!
Even though this advertising poster
from 1928 has nothing to do with
the Wizard of Oz, I felt
compelled to share it ...
I'm certain you know why ...
This poster, and the one at
the top, are both circa 1903.

Those of you that have visited me
more than a few times know of
my passion and love for Ferrets ...

aren't these sweet fuzzies simply
adorable in their tiny Oz costumes?!

In closing, I'd like to stick
with the theme of Part 2 ...
Forgetting Things ...
or, sometimes called ...

"If I Only Had a Brain"

I could while away the hours,
conferrin' with the flowers
consultin' with the rain.
And my head I'd be scratchin'
while my thoughts were busy hatchin'
If I only had a brain.

I'd unravel every riddle
for any individ'le,
in trouble or in pain.
With the thoughts you'll be thinkin'
you could be another Lincoln
if you only had a brain.

Oh, I could tell you why
the ocean's near the shore.
I could think of things
I never thunk before.
And then I'd sit,
and think some more.
I would not be just a nothin'
my head all full of stuffin'
my heart all full of pain.
I would dance and be merry,
life would be a ding-a-derry,
if I only had a brain.

~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~

Perhaps one day I'll hear these words ...
"I hereby confer upon you
the honorary degree of Th.D.
That's Dr. of Thinkology."

To which I'd reply, of course ...
"Oh, joy! Rapture!
I've got a brain!"

Until another time ... Pearl

Oh Pearl! I just now saw this addition to your W of O post! I LOVE it. Isn't that song great?! It's so clever and I certainly sympathise with you on that if I only had a brain thing. I wish for that many days. Your posters are quite interesting too! Thanks for sharing this extra bit of Oz goodness. Twyla

I will be humming that song all day now - as it completely applies to yours truly too - I blame loss of brain cells on parenthood - something the Scarecrow probably didn't suffer - but who knows over the Rainbow?



Hi Pearl,
Part 2 is the fur babies in their little outfits.
Hope you are feeling much better!! So happy that you are posting again.
Deb :)
