The Queen of the Mississippi paddlewheeler docked at our waterfront in my hometown of Vicksburg, MS, today. It's always a pleasure to see and to welcome all her passengers to our historical civil war town and to the Vicksburg National Military Park. The weather was a perfect day for touring and site seeing. She will be back to see us again on August 30, at 2:00 p.m. and also on September 9, at 8:00 a.m.
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.
