We’re back from a rather rapid trip to South Carolina! Mary’s youngest son John became a U.S. Marine at Parris Island last week and we drove down for his Friday morning graduation. I’ll be posting a series of entries on some of the food we had while we were there, including my first-ever Sonic burger, a Shrimp Burger, and what that Shrimp Burger has to do with the film “Forrest Gump”. Stay tuned!
John and proud mom Mary enjoy the Parris Island Museum Thursday afternoon.
