But during a recent stop in Milan, the thin, 60-year-old Welsh woman didn't wish to dwell on her encounters with creatures such as bears and wolves. Such experiences are merely metaphors for life, Pope said. Its real adventures are milestones such as birthdays, falling in love and simple things such as hearing funny stories.

Hi, my name is Bryan Kay. I'm a sixth grader at Monroeville Elementary School. I like being a Boy Scout (Troop 239) because I like to go camping, where we get to learn about nature and whatever there is in the area that we camp at. We do a few fundraisers like car washes and selling popcorn. We also meet a few new people at the different campgrounds we camp at. My Scout Master, Terry Meyers, is a real nice guy. He helps me learn about cooking and the different rules about scouting.
