My picture I took of a statue of Col. Thomas N. Waul was published yesterday in The Vicksburg Post. It was taken at the Texas monument and has a picturesque view of the Iowa monument on the south loop of the Vicksburg National Military Park. The rules to be published are that the photos should be current and of interest to the public, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographic skill shown. It's really nice to toot your own horn now and then! Charming, Just Charming!
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.
