This completely has nothing to do with anything that I usually post about, but I've been noticing a lot of monarchs passing through Cleveland on their way to Mexico. One of my all-time favorite books when I was a kid was a book called Monarch X. (All the other ones were about horses, of course; I loved Walter Farley's Black Stallion series.) Monarch X told the story of a tagged monarch butterfly that eventually flew all the way to Mexico. I was surfing around looking for some info on monarch butterflies, and I found that you can read Monarch X on the web (unfortunately, it doesn't have the great images to go along with it that I remember, though). I'm guessing this book is the reason why I am so interested in nature so it was neat to find it again.
(I asked my mother if she remembered Monarch X and she said "you loved that book!" She thinks she saved Monarch X because I loved it so much. I found a copy on Amazon.com; that's EXACTLY the book cover I remember. It's full title was The Travels of Monarch X.)
