My friend and former co-worker, Valérie, now travels around the country with the circus. I try to keep up with her blog, so I knew she was recently in the Chicago area. When I checked in with her blog today, I saw she was getting fairly close to Jacksonville.
Just now I checked again, and she’s in Mount Sterling — at the edge of my newspaper’s coverage area. That’s a little more than an hour away. She said they’d be in Winchester tomorrow, too. That’s only 20 minutes or so away.
