Thanks, Jim G!
Today's thanks goes to Jim G., who adopted our Lambchop toy. Although Shari Lewis' correspondence with our founder W.S. Berger is extensive, the museum does not currently have an authentic Lambchop puppet; this one was purchased at a local Cracker Barrel restaurant and donated in 2006. Since Shari's passing in 1998, her daughter Mallory has been the official voice of Lambchop. Included in today's photos with Jim are a photo of Shari and Lambchop with former Vent Haven Museum curator Dorothy Millure in 1992 and a photo of Mallory Lewis, Lambchop, and me taken just a few years ago. Also, I've included one of dozens of letters from Shari to Mr. Berger, as well as Shari's application to the International Brotherhood of Ventriloquists.
