My brother-in-law, Chris Ables, took this picture with his cell phone of a towboat making it's way under the bridges at Vicksburg, MS, a few days ago around 8:30 in the morning. You can barely see the top of the towboat as it makes it's way north. He periodically reads instruments on the banks of the Mississippi River measuring the ground movements. On this particular morning he was repairing and installing new instruments.
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.
