    I hear there is a cool place in Bali.. I think it is the Sacred Forest Or Monkey Forest… I have seen cool pictures of the temples and the monkeys… It’s funny you talked about a deep fried Twinkie when I went to the Wisconsin fair when I lived up there…one of my good buddies told me to buy him a deep friend Twinkie if I found one, and I did…not sure how good they are when that are not fresh…hahaha…Lot of cool things… and I love otters… I would love to hang with a raccoon and feed him and just hang with him for a bit while he eats…watching them eat always makes me smile… such a great post. I love it. Keep up the great work. You got this 30 days…easy peasey lemon breezey fo-sheezey 😀
