Our Flag at half mast in Clinton, Missouri in memory of 500,000 victims of Covid, so far.

This statue of a Confederate and Union Soldier from our Civil War is on the Courthouse lawn, in Clinton, county seat for Henry County. Some estimate there were 750,000 casualties during the U.S. Civil War. Missouri has been called the "seedbed" of the Civil War. You may think it is very unusual for a Statue to have both sides displayed. You may find the following article very interesting.

This is the statue of the English poet John Clare, located outside his museum in Helpston, just outside Peterborough.
I've never been "into" poetry too much, but visiting this museum and learning all about him was one of the most moving occasions I've experienced. If you've never heard of the man, I encourage you to have at least a brief glimpse into his tragic life.

These are the Kelpies in Scotland.
That's my brother-in-law in the foreground to give you some idea of scale.

Anyone interested in classic English Literature would have heard of the heroine here.
It's of Lorna Doone.

I'm hoping that those "bulges" are her puffed sleeves and not a misplaced heaving bosom. ;)

Unfamiliar with her, however I am familiar with the cookies.
