We went on a motorcycle ride to Branson Saturday with Cliff's sister and her husband; you can see them up ahead of us in this picture of us crossing Truman Lake.
Coming home, the brother-in-law felt the need for protein and stopped at a McDonalds. Cliff and I had eaten at the motel, so we strolled around and soaked up some local facts about Bolivar, Missouri. Click on the picture and you'll be able to read what the marker says.
Indeed, it's a statue of a South American hero right here in Missouri. And a town was named after him.
