I have just received an email from an American woman who is doing some genealogical research on my family (on my mother’s side). And guess what? Firstly I hear that I have cousins in Iowa (!?) and that one of them played one of Munchkins in the Wizard of Oz 1939 original version!! I mean, how totally and utterly cool is that?

This is going to be a great year.

I wish you a fwab one too.

  1. omg. it lives..

  3. Wow, that is the coolest news ever! Happy new year, my dear froggie! 😀

  4. Will you be laying down a yellow brick road to your new pad? 🙂 Happy New Year to you too, sunshine.

  5. Darling! I once played one of the munchkins! When I was about 5! I KNEW we were long lost relatives. Kindred spirits indeed.
    Hugs and kisses for the new year.
    Let’s have lots of adventures, ok?

  6. We represent the lolly-pop guild (you’ll need some lederhosen and striped socks though)… bonne année, cher Frog!

  7. With the closing of the 2007 chapter (henceforth entitled “Year of the Gizzards”), unfortunately I don’t have anything as notable as Munchkin cousin to mark 2008… but something will come! I have a Dutch rideshare driver who is keenly trying to piece together my family tree (but is that a bit weird? I think he took it as a challenge when I said it was all part of a central European post-war mish-mash). Hmm… when the letters from the Mormons will be when I start to panic…
    Anyhoo, I just stumbled on your blog and from a quick flick through, I think it’s ace. I’ll be back!

  8. Je te souhaite a great year full of great things for yu Frog 🙂
    ouaf warf wouaf … 😉

  9. Bonne annee mon “petit” !! Happy to see you’re back….I missed you so.

  10. Bonne Année !

  11. Wow! Surely that must be the second coolest thing to arise from genealogical research (the best being finding out that you’re Madonna’s third cousin thrice removed, of course!)
    Happy New Year Dahling!

  12. Ah, I just wished you a Happy New year in your latest post, but I wanted to pop in here as well — and just say that I believe this is going to be a GREAT year as well! 🙂
