Well, I haven't forgotten. I am obsessed...I will get to No. 50. Can you guess which one that will be?
We visited South Carolina the first time when Chuck competed a World Amateur Handicap Championship Golf Tournament in Myrtle Beach.
The memorable part of the trip was our first time ever to eat at an Outback Steakhouse. First of all, we had to have a "Bloomin Onion". Of course, we both had an entree. Then, to make matters worse/better? we had the Chocolate Thunder From Down Under. We left and went directly to our hotel, did not pass "Go", collapsed and groaned for the rest of the night. It was an "aha" moment. We found it was time to quit stuffing our face to the point of misery. Now we, normally, split an appetizer, an entrée, and each have a salad....and there is not dessert, (sad, but true).
The next time we went to Charleston via Jacksonville, Florida.(No. 47) Chuck went to a First Tee National Meeting and we turned the trip into the "Southeast Tour". We visited my Aunt Mary Lou in Decatur, Georgia and Athens before landing in Jacksonville. After the meeting we headed for Charleston and a great three days.
We actually saw Carolyn and Harry Gaffney our long time friends.
They were at our "family" wedding ceremony and now live in Dallas, Texas.
We love South Carolina!

We had the 50cent tour of the University of Tennessee and First Tee of Knoxville. From there we headed back to Little Rock.
Traveling is fun; but, there is no place like home...and your own bed....ahhhh!
