Sybil's "My Merry Memoirs"... with the Oompa-Loompas...

Hun Ter Law Rence Oompa Loompa House (246A).jpg

Have I told you about my adventures with one of my favorite photographers over the years?? Lawrence Hunter was by my side for so many of those planned (and UNplanned!) moments in one's career!

Here's one for all the Willy Wonka fans!!.... did you know that the Moomin House in Naantali is where the Oompa Loompas ended up after the Chocolate Factory was destroyed by Allied bombing...?? Well, it was... and I happened to have been doing a USO show nearby!...and the rest? ...well, is history! By the way, the Oompa-Loompas treated me much as the Munchkins treated Judy Garland.... (lots of dirty limericks, re-enactments of French postcards, pinches on the bottom, and offers of cheap cigars! You can tell by the expression on my face in Lawrence's photo, can't you?! JEEEESH!).
