Today, Bob and I are celebrating our 21st Wedding Anniversary. We got married Easter evening on April 3, 1988. Chris put this picture of us on my Facebook the other day when he came across it looking through a photo album. It was taken when we attended the wedding of his brother-in-law, Billy, on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in July 1995, two months before Bob had his stroke. Chris was instrumental in building my website, A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter, while he was attending college at Mississippi State. He help me make my dream come true of having my very own site. He and his wife Elaine and two children are living in Chelsea, Alabama now. As far as Bob and I, we are hopefully looking forward to having many more years together.
PS: I called in our anniversary earlier this morning to Radio Station, River 101, and we just won! Our names were picked out of three anniversaries. We will get a free meal at Horizon Casino, Bouquet of Flowers and a night stay at Diamond Jacks Hotel/Casino. We just hit the jackpot!
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
