to the Internet's first and only
Slipper Fan Club!
An interesting thing happened when I set
up a small page on my "Judy
Garland - The Live Performances!" web site. I had one single page devoted
to the ruby slippers and my fascination with them and I was shocked
at the number of other people that were as curious and interested in them
as I was! For the longest time, I felt like I was alone, but when
I set up that page, I found things to be quite different. It amazes
me that there were so many others with 'Slipper Fever,' as I like to call
it out there around the world. That single page grew to be a web site of
it's own that you're visiting now. There are seperate pages that
have pictures of all the existing 'authentic' ruby slippers with detailed
descriptions - as well as quite a few pages that have images of fans personal
shoes and Ozzy artwork. Almost all of the information regarding the
authentic ruby slippers was found in the book, "The Ruby Slippers of Oz,"
by Rhys Thomas.
As the Clubs Leader, I'm open to suggestions
from other members as to how we should proceed on the List. The List is
always open to topics of conversation relating to primarily the ruby slippers
and anything to do with the 1939 M-G-M classic motion picture,
of Oz and where and when the latest collectable is - and where it can
be found. If you have any questions about the movie, there'll be
plenty of people here that can answer it for you. If you have the
courage to pour your heart out and show us what your brain can do tell
us what Oz means to you. For any parents that are considering letting your
child join, the List is moderated, as it is open to all age groups - and
everyone should keep that in mind when posting. "Jimminy Cricket" or "Curses,
CURSES!" is about as foul as the languge is allowed to get around here.
As a member of the club if you have a pair
of ruby slippers, ruby slipper or Oz art, an essay or anything associated
that you'd like to share with the world, send me your pictures, your scans,
your words, and I'll set up a web page right here on this site for everyone
We'd love to have you along - so why not
join us on our journey down our own little yellow brick road!
