What Puts a Smile on Your Face?

They say that if an object held in your hand brings you joy, then hang on to it! I've been focusing on finding joy as a part of my grieving process after Alan's death on July 1. ILiving in a new town in a new state has given me ample opportunity to get out there and look around.

There is no shortage of art and culture in Indianapolis and it is the Bi-Centennial year of the state so there are extra-special things to see. Looking back on the last few weeks, it seems I'vebeen quite busy. A photo-essay about some of the things that brought me joy seemed a better idea than the minute details.

Had to have their famous Key Lime Pie! The wine was just an after-thought!

They say kids love "toilet humor." How did the Children's Museum in Columbus, IN know that?

If they went down the tubes once, they went down 30 times with it "flushing" behind them!
