I took Rocky and Art with me in my attempt to catch the elusive kingfisher at the Pelican Pond.  As expected he was a no-show and after listening to Rocky's painful rendition of a dying duck using one of her duck calls, we decided to go in search of another photo opportunity.  One the drive out to the base where I knew a wonderful sunset shot awaited us, Rocky decided to share what she had learned during her recent sex education class.

Rocky:  My teacher says girls get PMS and boys get Poverty.

Me (trying not to laugh):  I think you mean Puberty.  Boys usually don't get poverty until they grow up and get married.

Rocky:  Whats Poverty?

Me:  Thats poorness.

Art:  Girls go through puberty too.

Rocky:  Huh uh!  Girls have PMS.

Art:  Yes they do.  Puberty is when your hormones change, your body changes and you start growing hair all over your body.  Hair on your chest, hair on your armpits.  I even have hair on my butt!  But I don't have hair where I want it... on my lips.  I think I will transplant the hair from my butt to my lip because I don't need hair on my butt.

I'm sure he meant facial hair, like his older brothers have... but I left that one alone!  Ewwww!
