Strong Women


I LOVE THESE PASSAGES FROM THE WORKS OF L. FRANK BAUM...
This is absolutely true and funny!
For all of the strong, wonderful, creative, intelligent, hard working, self sacrificing, dedicated, loving, compassionate women in our world, THIS POST IS DEDICATED TO YOU! 


"As they passed the rows of houses they saw through the open doors that men were sweeping and dusting and washing dishes, while the women sat around in groups, gossiping and laughing.

What has happened?' the Scarecrow asked a sad-looking man with a bushy beard, who wore an apron and was wheeling a baby carriage along the sidewalk. 

Why, we've had a revolution, your Majesty -- as you ought to know very well,' replied the man; 'and since you went away the women have been running things to suit themselves. I'm glad you have decided to come back and restore order, for doing housework and minding the children is wearing out the strength of every man in the Emerald City.'

Hm!' said the Scarecrow, thoughtfully. 'If it is such hard work as you say, how did the women manage it so easily?'

I really do not know,' replied the man, with a deep sigh. 'Perhaps the women are made of cast-iron."
L. Frank Baum
Of course I have to admit I am also a HUGE FAN of the Wizard of Oz movie, and this post would not be complete for me without a homage to Margaret Hamilton...


Margaret is a personal role model of mine (LOL), I love her wickedness!  Can't you just hear the music? Da da da da da....
(these pictures were posted strictly for my own pleasure, plus it's Halloween time, right?).
This is me...dressed like Margaret...again...
