Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated.  I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

greensilverbrownglassflower

This is one of a series of large beads obtained from different places and converted into travel bugs.  They are named for Texas towns with interesting names or histories.

Ding Dong is an unincorporated community in Central Texas.  It is on the Lampasas River, in Bell County.  Ding Dong was named after two early settlers in the town, Zulis Bell and nehphew Bert Bell, who opened a store there.  That the community is in Bell County, is a coincidence.  The Bells hired the artist Cohn Cohen Hoover to make a sign for their store.   Hoover painted a sign with two bells on it. Inside the bells, Hoover painted the initials of the Bell brothers. Underneath one bell he painted the word "Ding" and the word "Dong" under the other bell.  As a result, the men were known locally as Ding Bell and Dong Bell.  And, over the years, because of this sign, this community became known as Ding Dong.
