I first met Dr. Bell back when the Nancy Pearl dolls were brand new. She ordered me over the Internet and when I arrived she took me right out of the packaging. I am not crazy about those people who keep my body doubles swathed in plastic and stuck up on shelves. I was meant to be FREE! Anyway, I went to TLA (Texas Library Association) that year in San Antonio and, along the way, Dr. Bell started taking pictures of me. She got me in front of the Alamo! She met the living breathing Nancy Pearl and took a picture of me with HER! Then she took MORE pictures of me around Texas and our relationship blossomed along with the bluebonnets. I have been with her all over the place now! Some places I have been:
New York City
West Coast USA--Oregon, Washington, California
Across the Rio Grande into Mexico
On a road trip through the South--Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia. We even went to Dollywood!
I know I am forgetting some...Anyway, I do get around. and am pretty proud that Dr. Bell had me join up as the first member of her Fantastic 591 Class.
