My second to youngest granddaughter is 8 years old today. Emma lives in Virginia and wishing that I could be with her to celebrate her special day. I sung Happy Birthday to her earlier today and she was getting ready to go to her skating rink birthday party. That should be loads of fun! Here she is at 5 years old before her baby sister (Kate) was born April 2013. She came to Vicksburg to have Thanksgiving dinner with her extended family in November 2012. Gran Gran misses and loves you so much. Wishing my sweet little Emma a very Happy 8th Birthday today!
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.
