The Obsession.........

My Father, the man than instilled in me the love of travel and maps has decided he would like to visit every county in the United States - then he found this bizarre website where he can actually track it! My father is the champion of marathon car rides - his obsession with driving lends itself to many inside jokes in our family. He went to Iceland a few years ago and sent me a postcard of the country - I called my brother to see if he'd gotten the same postcard - and he had - we took bets on whether or not our father had driven the road that went all the way around Iceland - its called the "ring road." Sure enough he had! Well he's not driving his Morgan but the blue counties above represent which counties he's visited so far. I'm glad my mother is such a good sport!

Morgan: A Car or a Horse?

When I was a mere tot (not that many years ago!) - my Father told my Mother (the woman that instilled the passion of horses in me) that he had planned a trip to England and they were going to buy a Morgan. To her surprise the Morgan was a sports car not a horse! I know nothing about Morgan horses and saw this billboard in some airport a few months ago - don't you just love it? What would add quality to your life besides a Morgan?
