As I look around town I see a lot of flowers in full bloom now. Above is a picture of our Japanese Magnolia tree and it's flower in bloom. By Sunday the temps will be dipping again below freezing. I don't know if it will have any affect on the blooms or not. This has been the strangest weather yet for winter here in Vicksburg that I can recall. It has also been unseasonably warmer in most parts of the United States as well. We just got to take it all in stride and enjoy each day as it comes and be thankful for all that we have.
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.
