Many thanks to Leah Guinn who sent in this lovely picture of Barefoot with a statue of Max Ehrmann, a Terre Haute, Indiana native who wrote the famous poem, "Desiderata." He's sitting at the corner of US Highway 40 (the National Road), and US 41, or the old "Dixie Highway" (which connects Chicago and Miami, Florida). Mr. Ehrmann liked to sit out at this corner to people watch, write and, apparently, read about Sherlock Holmes.
