Have you ever heard of the "Road" series of movies starring Bob Hope and Bing Crosby? My mom is quite the fan of Old Hollywood black and white movies, so I watched a lot of these growing up. Road To Morocco was always my favorite. It's a mix of comedy, adventure, and satire and a bit of a spoof on the "Arabian Nights" genre of movies. Every time I travel, I think of the opening sequence with Hope and Crosby riding camels singing, "We're off on the road to Morocco..."
All of this is totally off topic and just intended to tell you that today I'm off on the road to Texas. Nothing like Morocco, but a foreign land in its own right. I'll be visiting my family for New Year's and may or may not have time to post very often. I've been writing - and hopefully you've been reading - this blog for almost a year now. It's been fabulously fun so ... thank you! I'm looking forward to whatever mega-mushrooms 2011 may bring. Happy New Year!!!
