    Default Week 5 -There's No Place Like Home *Challenge*

    Before we continue on our journey.... check the below thread to see is you will be moving on to week 5. {LINK HERE}
    And now our journey continues....

    After some time passes, you hear voices at the door! It is your friends! They bust down the door and free you and Dorothy. Suddenly you are all surrounded by the Wicked Witches evil monkeys, the cackling voice of the Witch mocks you and your friends. The witch has you cornered, and she is ready to begin her torture. She holds her broom up to a flame, and screeches, "How about a little fire, Scarecrow," quickly pushing the flames into the Scarecrows hay!
    "I'm burning!! I'm burning!" cries the Scarecrow.
    Dorothy grabs a bucket of water, and throws it onto the Scarecrow, the water douses the Scarecrow, and also hits the Wicked Witch.
    The water looks like it is burning the witch! She begins to scream, "You cursed brat, look what you've done!! I'm melting, I'm melting!"
    Soon there is nothing left but a pile of smoldering clothes. The Wicked Witch is DEAD!
    "All hail Dorothy, the Wicked Witch is dead!"

    Dorothy takes the broom, and you all immediately head back to visit the Wizard of Oz. "Please Sir, we have done what you told us, we brought you the broom stick of the Wicked Witch of the West, we melted her," Dorothy exclaimed.
    The Wizard of Oz does not react as expected! He tells you to go away, and come back tomorrow. Dorothy is not having that! She insists he see you right now! Toto dashes away and runs under a curtain, Dorothy and the Wizard continue to argue, and you see Toto pulling the curtain back. Dorothy notices right after you do, and she sees- the great Wizard of Oz is no more than a mere man!
    "You humbug," the Scarecrow accuses.
    "Well, yes, I am a humbug," the Wizard of Oz says.

    "You better be able to get us Home, and what about the heart you promised Tinman, and courage you promised the Lion, the brain you promised Scarecrow," you shout!

    The Wizard begins to talk quickly, "Why, anybody can have a brain. That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the earth -- or slinks through slimy seas has a brain! From the rock-bound coast of Maine to the Sun.... oh - oh, no -- -- ah - Well, be that as it may. Back where I come from we have universities, seats of great learning -- where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts -- and with no more brains than you have.... But! They have one thing you haven't got! A diploma!"
    And he hands the Scarecrow a Diploma!

    With a determined look on his face, the Scarecrow states, "The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side. Oh joy, rapture! I've got a brain!"

    Next the Wizard heads over to the Lion, "As for you, my fine friend -- you're a victim of disorganized thinking. You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom. Back where I come from, we have men who are called heroes. Once a year, they take their fortitude out of mothballs and parade it down the main street of the city. And they have no more courage than you have. But! They have one thing that you haven't got! A medal! Therefore -- for meritorious conduct, extraordinary valor, conspicuous bravery against wicked witches, I award you the Triple Cross. You are now a member of the Legion of Courage!"
    With that, he gives the Lion a large medal that says "Courage" upon it.

    "Oh -- Oh -- shucks, folks, I'm speechless!" says the Lion.

    The Wizard then looks at the Tinman. "As for you, my galvanized friend, you want a heart! You don't know how lucky you are not to have one. Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable. I could have been a world figure, a power among men, a - a successful wizard, had I not been obstructed by a heart. Back where I come from there are men who do nothing all day but good deeds. They are called -- er -- phil -- er, yes...good-deed-doers. And their hearts are no bigger than yours. But! They have one thing you haven't got! A testimonial! Therefore, in consideration of your kindness, I take pleasure at this time in presenting you with a small token of our esteem and affection."
    The Wizard presents the Tinman with a heart-shaped watch.
    "And remember, my sentimental friend, that a heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others," The Wizard of Oz tells him.

    "Ahh --- Oh, it ticks! Listen!" Exclaims the Tinman.

    Dorothy's expression goes from very excited for her friends, to very sad, in an instant. She takes you by the hand and asks the Wizard of Oz, "How about us, how will you get us back home?"

    Time seems to stand still for a moment, you can hear Dorothy talking to the Wizard of Oz, but your mind has drifted off. You are thinking about your Home, your loved ones, your little "Toto". This has been an amazing adventure, but you miss you Home so so much.....

    Week 5 - There's No Place Like Home *Challenge*
    This weeks challenge is all about you home! This is your nest, your refuge, that place you can relax, snuggle up and watch movies, have family dinners, enjoy your friends, family and animals. You can cook or bake, you can play on your computer, you can have dinner parties, or BBQ's, you can decorate for the holidays, you can stay in your jammies all day if you want to! Maybe your home is not your "dream home" but there must be at least one spot, in your home, that you love. After all... There's No Place Like Home!
