Geez, now we have to find time to get to St. Augustine, FL in the next year or so. Mrs. WYA! has a major soft spot for Bob Hope (a carry-over from her childhood spent watching his movies on what was then WFFT Super 55 in Fort Wayne with Steve Shine doing awesome voice overs) and the World Golf Hall of Fame is having an exhibit entitled "Bob Hope: Shanks for the Memory". Per the USA Today article, it will feature "sets designed to reflect locations significant in Hope's life, a sampling of his 54 honorary degrees and costumes from his TV shows. The Bob Hope Theater will feature some of his best known golf skits and emphasize the more than 700-plus USO trips he took with stars such as Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Clark Gable, Fred Astaire and Marilyn Monroe to entertain troops, from World War II through the Gulf War."
