So I went on a trip to Charlotte, NC 10/4 to 10/13. I played 13 courses in 6 states including the IDGC (PDGA headquarters, Winthrop Gold and Hornet's Nest) and visited my mom, family and went to a wedding.
Anyways, I stayed at a MS State Park near Tupelo, MS on the way out. While checking in when I gave my address information to the park ranger, he said, 'you just came from the place where the massacred happened.'
Thinking he was talking current events (another school shooting - I was out of the media loop), I was shocked and asked him for the details.
'That's the place where Quantrill killed all those Yankees!' (verbatim).
Yes, sir, I am in the deep south, aren't I.
Come to find out the guy was actually pretty decent. He just read about the 150 year anniversary of the raid and was surprised to see an actual Lawrencian come to visit him. To bad I left John Brown at home with gun and Bible.
Lawrence is fine. Not sure about the golf today though.
