Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Peru, Indiana....circus town.

Peru, (pee-roo), county seat of Miami County, in northern Indiana, was once the winter headquarters of several famous circuses. Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey, Wallace, and others, called Peru home once the summer season was over. Peru is known as the Circus Capital of the World. .

Cafe DuCirque
, is an interesting coffee house there, where I meet friends for home-made soups, panini, espresso, or a warm nutella-banana crepe, that is to die for! Local artists line the walls with their creations. It's sunny, has lemon yellow painted walls, and it's easy to spend several hours there deep in conversation.

Peru, was also the birthplace of Cole Porter; famous songwriter of the '20's. He's buried there, and his monuments are very modern and unusual, standing out in Mt. Hope cemetery.
