"But Oz Never Did Give Nothin' To The Tin Man..."

"That he didn't, didn't already have. And Cause never was the reason for the evenin', or the tropic of Sir Galahad."

What in the heck was that Dewey Bunnell feller from the band America smokin' when he wrote those lyrics? It makes no sense but was a real toe tapper, wasn't it?

I remember my mama lovin' that song, so I saved my money and bought her the 45 (for 79¢) and gave it to her for her birthday. That along with some groovy wooden napkins rings. Gotta love the 70's.

Here's my Tin Man.

I'm workin' on the scarecrow next...

Many of y'all know I still get the willies when I see those flyin' monkeys! YIKES!
*shudder* But I know they are important characters to the story.

So I was finally was able to bring myself to sculpt one of these lil' creatures. He will be offered with the Wicked Witch.

Mine isn't as scary lookin' but I reckon it will take years of therapy to overcome this one. I really do need my head examined anyway. :> )
