Kudos to two fabulous ladies
The Jensen Community in Garden City Beach has a Nine & Dine group that meets every Tuesday, playing nine holes of golf and then going out to eat.
Two of our ladies, Martha Gertsch and Lucille Gibbs, will celebrate their 93rd birthdays in April, Martha on April 5 and Lucy on April 27. They play better golf than I do.
Eat your heart out, Mr. Bestler. On March 22, Lucy played 37 on the back nine at Tupelo and three weeks previous, shot a 38 on the front nine.
Martha is no slouch, either. She's fairly constant with 40, 42s and 43s. I tell them they are inspirational and intimidating all at the same time.
We are honored and privileged to know you both and wish you the happiest birthdays ever. From all the Nine & Dine group.

Editor's note: We're sorry it's a day late, but happy birthday, Martha. With friends like these, it was no doubt a good one.
