R:.W:. Tommy Turlington came to Winter Park Lodge on St. John’s Day in 2017, never expecting that he would take a trip down the Yellow Brick Road. Here’s an excerpt from his “preparation” for a seat in the Grand East.
“Bwah-ha-ha! There you are little Dorothy Turlington! You may have won the race for Junior Grand Warden with your pretty shoes but I’m coming for you! And your little dog too!
[Wicked Witch ‘flies’ away on her ‘broom’.]
“What was that?”
“I don’t know. We’re really butchering this story.”
“Let’s just get the Golden Mop and take it up to King Solomon for his inspection.”
“I mean the Wizard of Oz…Most Worshipful Lynn…Whoever!
“Look! Look, there it is! At the South Gate! It’s the Golden Mop!”
“This seems too easy, Dorothy!”
“Yeah…you go get it!”
[Scarecrow & Tin Man]:
“Yeah, you go. You go get it.”
[JGW goes and picks up Golden Mop.]
“What were you all so scared abouts? There was nothing to be scareds of! Nothing at all I tell you!”
