There’s No Place Like Home


A Thanksgiving tradition of many American families is to watch The Wizard of Oz when it airs on TV. This fact is irrelevant, mostly.

What is relevant is that The Wizard of Oz is one of Alfred’s favorite movies.  You see, he, too, has wondered if he had a heart, but it had nothing to do with his fluffy interior.  That is neither here nor there.  What the movie taught Alfred is that everyone has hearts, even the evil and the wicked.

When he saw The Girl’s ruby slippers, he joked, “There’s no place like home, eh?”

The Girl thought for a moment.  There really was no other place like Alaska.
There are places in Alaska that get 24 hours of sunlight a day.
There are places in Alaska that get no sunlight at all.
Alaska?  Can mess with Texas, as it’s over 2 times the size of Texas.
In Soviet Russia, Alaska buys you!  (For 2 cents an acre.)
Like bears?  Alaska boasts Grizzlies and Kodiaks and Polars, oh my!
Perhaps the most important fact that anyone could know about Alaska is that it is where Santa lives.


Tell Alfred what you think!
