A Milestone

     Guess what?  No picture today.  While the temperature didn't get out of the 50s today, Durelle and Cindy played golf at the course at the Charleston Naval Weapons Center.  Why a milestone?  For the first time ever Cindy beat her mother in 18 holes of golf.  It took her personal best to do it, but Durelle gave her a real challenge down the home stretch.  Playing over her head, Cindy shot a 40 on the front nine...five 5s, three 4s and a 3.  Durelle managed a 48.  Cindy struggled on the back nine.  She must have been aware of the significance of the event.  She ended up with a 90.  A triple on the 14th kept her from breaking 90.  Meanwhile, Durelle was putting on a charge.  After an inglorious 8 on 11, she buckled down and finished with three straight pars only to come up one stroke short.  I then met them at a favorite Mexican restaurant.
     I'm aware that the majority of the country didn't permit a round of golf today, and it was marginal here.  Nonetheless, it was another great day in South Carolina.
