Blast from the Past

Don't laugh. This is me.

I was 10 years old. I was a Jitterbug in the play The Wizard of Oz. What is a Jitterbug? Let me enlighten you. A jitterbug makes Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Lion dance and dance and dance until they are too tired to do anything, let alone search for the City of Oz. We were sent by the Wicked Witch of the West. I was a darn good jitterbug too. I danced and danced.

But I was not alone in this production. I had a few of my siblings join in the fun. Just below, is my sister Kim. She is with our cousin Nathan. They were the crows that liked to torment the Scarecrow.



My older brother was one of the three Lolipop Gang members. His claim to fame was when Dorothy picked his lolipop, instead one of the other two guy's lolipops. He was pretty happy in the video. Too bad it's lost. The next picture is my little sister Shavonne. She was a munchkin. I remember she got in trouble for talking during a pre-show meeting and was banished into the other room. She was barely 7 and I felt so bad for her.

So here are a few of us that were involved in the play. I wanted a few of my siblings to join in my humiliation as long as I was showing pictures from over 20 years ago. Wow. I'm old. But that's ok. Kim, you will always be older than me, so I can't feel that bad.

I remeber this play, it was awsome and I loved it. There was a guy that was another crow and Nathans friend and I "loved him" but for the life of me I cant remeber his name. I had the biggest crush. Wow I cant believe I Forgot....
