WITHOUT THE MUNCHKINS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A SAD MOVIE, FOR MY 50TH BIRTHDAY, MY SON IN LAW IS A GRAPHIC DESIGNER, MADE ME A T-SHIRT THAT SAYS -MAYOR OF THE MUNCHKIN CITY. I LOVE IT AND I AM ALSO CALLED A MUNCHKIN BY NY FAMILY. I CONSIDER IT AN HONOR AS I AM AN AVID COLLECTOR AND FAN. BLESS YOU SIR FOR ALL YOU HAVE GIVEN US. SEE YOU IN HEAVEN ONE DAY.
