We were out running errands Wednesday morning and always look out towards the Mississippi River to see any river traffic and saw this barge that had ran aground. Looks like he did not make a wide enough turn and the swiftness of the river turned him back into the bank at the bend in the river. We do not live far away from the river and went to the house to get my camera. It always happens when I don't bring my camera, I see something I want to take a picture of. When I got back he was still trying to maneuver his way to get unstuck from the bank. He finally made it and and continued on upstream. Looks like some boats were nearby just in case. At least his day got a little better!
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.
