At a yard sale in the early 90's I found something I had never seen before. A book of Pope John Paul II paper dolls. It was unused and I thought it was pretty cool, even though I am not Catholic. So I paid the 50-cents and took them home.
The Wizard Of Oz is important to us in Kansas, so I was interested in this new movie called "Oz, The Great And Powerful." Were they gonna mess with the classic story? Rewrite it in any way? This all concerned me. I am very protective of Dorothy, Toto and the Munchins, of course.
When I was a kid, at the first hint of snow we were outside building snow forts. Do kids do that any more? It sure was fun. Actually, I built more of a "snow house" and had several rooms. I always had a kitchen and a bedroom. I would pull stuff from the garage to "furnish" my house. One year I got in a little bit of trouble for taking the floor mats out of my dad's truck to put down proper flooring in my snow mansion.
Danica Patrick made history this weekend when she became the first woman to win a pole position for a Sprint Cup NASCAR race. And it's for the granddaddy (or should we now say Grandmother) of all races, the Daytona 500. Got me to thinking. What other "first ladies" are there that we should recognize.
