About a mile from my house is a street I pass occasionally which has an interesting name.
Last Saturday the Old Salt and I were out doing one of our favorite pastimes, taking a drive and following any road that might lead to an interesting photo opt. So we decided to see what the Yellow Brick Road had to offer.
A short distance down the road we came to the entrance into a subdivision. No reason to be surprised that the yellow brick road led to the Emerald City. The Emerald City turned out to be a neighborhood of split foyer homes, of the seventies variety, sitting on large lots with all the streets either ending in a cul-de-sac or circling back to the yellow brick road.
It was certainly an ideal location for young families. No through traffic, dead end courts that allowed for bike riding and skateboarding with little fear of traffic.
The Tin Man and the Scarecrow were certainly represented
and munchkins in the form of children were everywhere,
both in person and by the toys they left in the yards.
Somewhere Over The Rainbow is a great song but what happened to Dorothy, the cowardly lion, the good and wicked witches and the great Wizard? Not a street sign or anything else to represent them. I was also disappointed because I did not see a single house that contained any yard art to go with the theme of living in the Emerald City.
I could not believe that with all the craft fairs in the area selling these tin men last fall that not a single family on Tin Man Alley wanted to hang one in their yard.
These scarecrows are so easy to make that I was shocked that no one on
Scarecrow Lane had one resting against their porch.
