14-12-2010 marks the first appearance of the "real" Nelly or Princess Nelly of Nelly Park. She is one of the few ladies in Russell's life. Russell is her favourite "aunty." Nelly belongs to Matthew Cain who is one of Russell's best friends.
There is a lot more information on preceding blog pages about Nelly and the long quest to get her featured here so please enjoy looking further over for the full story.
Below I have cut down the number of tweeted responses to Russell's pictures because they went on for over 5 to 6 pages...one of the biggest responses to a posting by Russell on twitter, EVAH!
