On our return trip from St Cloud we stopped at Kissimmee FL to see the Monument of States. A stone collection from a traveler turned into a huge monument. Many people collect stones from places they visit, but this is the largest collection I’ve seen.

Field trip day to St Cloud Florida. We went the the Chamber of Commerce and were given a Personal Walking Tour of the historic downtown. Lunch at crabby Bill’s. Monday is a good day to go if you want photos, but everything is closed with a small town feel.

Many birds start out one colour then mature to another. Juvenile Blue Herons are white and often confused with great white egrets. White Ibis start out as brown and change to white as they mature.
Young women go through many changes as puberty progresses.
In the State of Florida it will be illegal to talk to girls under grade 6 about menstruation (unless they may show signs of it) and human sexuality . So how many young girls will undergo traumatic bodily changes without knowing what is happening? or be sexually abused without knowing how to describe intercourse? What a major step backwards in a forward thinking country. How many girls will get pregnant without knowing about their own body functions? And in a state where they are trying to make abortions illegal? Even the morning after pill will no longer be available in Florida.
Girls can start menstruating as early as 9, but you can’t teach them about their monthly cycles until Grade 6 (they are 11). Women everywhere should be outraged by this law.
At the same time you have commercials during prime time about the size of tampon required?
Wake up and smell reality people.

I finally decided to go for my first bike ride on Sunday Morning.
On my way home there was a small, mal-nourished dog on the side of the road. I approached her, picked her up and took her home to try to find her owner and help her.
I’ve contacted the local Animal Shelters and posted her pictures, but she’s been alone for a very long time. Mangy hind quarters, sunken abdomen, long nails, dirty. She obviously had never been on a leash and doesn’t seem to be housetrained. She has already stolen my husband’s heart.
