Hi, Kristine.

Some fun, eh?

I may have to skip recording a day or two. Spring has finally come to our Montana homestead and I need to get ahead of the "green explosion."

Steven, I am listening to the Spanish period right now...I am also designing your cover so I needed to know what it is about. Great going!
Terrific Michele. Thank you and I'm glad you like it. It's a fun book.

Given the accomplishments of the man, I'd be surprised if there really were not a single monument...

Booknotes lists 31 monuments:

"Monuments to Jedediah Smith contains a four page biographical sketch of Smith, a map of his travels, and a listing of thirty one monuments to Smith (over half of them in California). The listing for each monument includes county, specific location, accessibility, type of construction, wording on the monument, and a photograph of the monument."

Wow.

Thanks for DPL-ing. I hope to get back to recording in the next few days.
