         Perhaps, including this article is a stretch.  It was written by Lita Solis-Cohen, who, later, became a friend.  I guess she saw Noel and I as a means of addressing the Bil Baird auction in a way that would personalize the experience, and enter into the excitement of it all. I found this article, the other day, and was amazed at the degree to which it had darkened with age.  I believe it should be saved.  Fans and admirers of Bil Baird will find it interesting.  And as it mentions yours truly, right from the beginning, I will preserve it here.  By the way, Heathcliff the horse and Noel’s dinosaur ended up in Mouse Heaven, too, eventually.
