On Wednesday, Dec 21, Cindy and I laid low in the morning, and then shortly before noon headed over to an “accidental find” – the De Soto National Monument. The picture below is appropriate, I think – an Indian Blanket. The National Monument marks the location where Hernando De Soto came ashore in May of 1539, starting his four year expedition of devastation through what is much of the southeastern United States.
