Wednesday my daughter, granddaughter and I be flying to Virginia to visit my youngest daughter and family for a week. They have made plans for us to go into Washington, DC and possibly Arlington Cemetery while there. I'm hoping that I will get to go to the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier again. It is a very impressive and a humbling experience. My daughter and granddaughter have never flown before and will be a good experience for both of them. This will be a great history lesson for my granddaughter who will be 15 years old in September. While there our family will also celebrate my youngest granddaughter's 5th birthday, which is on the day we arrive. She will have a big Barbie Doll birthday party at a local business this coming weekend. We are all looking forward to having a great time and visiting with our family!
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.
