Thanks for the memories
Bob Hope has age 100. Born in England as Leslie Townes Hope, he provided decades of laughter under the most common name...Bob. And did you know that, besides being an entertainer, he was a Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire with 54 honorary doctorates? He was also the first person ever to be named an Honorary Veteran of the US military. My father would probably want me to point out that Bob Hope was an avid golfer, playing on over 2000 courses around the world. He once joked that golfing was his profession, he just told jokes to pay the greens fees. Selfishly, I wish Bob could've lived another 100 years, so he could continue entertaining the world. But ultimately, I know Bob Hope is in a better place...playing golf and telling jokes wherever he goes. God Bless his Soul.
