The Yellow Butcher-Paper Road

This evening was closing night on the Civano Community School's "The Wizard of Oz" production. It should probably also be noted that yesterday was opening night. Both of our daughters were in the musical: our older daughter as a member of the lullaby league of munchkins, and our younger as a flying monkey. Too cute, the both of them; and of course all of the kids. Lots of color and audience laughter and magical lighting and soft voices for unremembered lines.

But I'm not very pleased with this new Nikon Coolpix L1 we bought for my wife just a few weeks back. Oh, it's very easy to use, and nicely compact, but the picture quality is not great so far, there's no macro functionality at all, and the flash has poor range. Bummer.

Well, the kids are still as precious as can be, regardless:


In the land of Oz, with the two sisters from Kansas (Dorothy and Dottie), the scarecrow, Toto, tin man, lion, and guard of Oz. Some of the flying monkeys are lower left.

No shortage of color on our older daughter, an applauding lullaby leaguer.

And our younger daughter (the taller one) in costume. They danced to "Hit the Road, Jack," just before the Wicked Witch of the West melted under a lump of confetti water.
