I'm dedicating this post to my very good friend, CDGardens at Timber Life, who lives in Iowa. The Iowa State Memorial is approximately a mile and half from the Alabama Monument and almost at the end of the south loop. This is really a beautiful monument. My grandmother, mother, aunts and uncles used to live in a house behind this monument years ago and was told many stories by my mother. I guess this is why it's one of my favorites. The monument was dedicated on November 15, 1906 and construction completed in 1912 at a cost of $100,000.
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.
