Today’s post is being guest-written by Charlotte
Allow me to introduce myself to you. My name is Charlotte Jane Goodall, and I am the adopted daughter of Nancy Burks Worcester, ventriloquist extraordinaire. She is a human, bless her heart.

I am a Mannequin-American. Real in so many ways, and yet nothing without my lovely assistant, Nancy Burks Worcester.
We are waiting anxiously for your call so we can come to your school, church, charity function, or any other special event.
