The Saturday Picture Show, August 20, 2016 (Special Vacation Destinations Edition)

Where did everyone go this summer for vacation?  Ocean City, Maryland is the #1 destination for beachlovers in our town.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame holds sacred garments such as this Baltimore Colts jersey worn by the great Gino Marchetti, who fought in World War II ("The first time I saw snow, I slept in it") and came here to play ball and hold a place in our hearts and minds forever.  The Colts were moved by the devil himself to some evil town in the midwest and have not been heard from since.

For those who like to travel far, here's a colorful apartment complex in the island of Ibiza, off the coast of Spain.  
Former Oriole pitcher Ben McDonald said the first time he saw New York, yes, he slept a matter of fact, the Lousiana native did not leave his hotel room until it was time to go play because he had "never seen that many people before."
Not far up the road from our town, but a whole world away, is Amish Country in Lancaster PA.
It's still on my bucket list to see Cuba.  The cars!
Minnie Pearl's dress, Ernest Tubb's hat, Hank Williams's suit: more sacred garments, all on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.
From the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown NY:  Brooks Robinson's glove.  He could do things with this leather that no others could.
