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.

Filming "Due Date"
It's very exciting to have a film crew here in Vicksburg this past Tuesday evening filming a scene on the Interstate 20 Bridge over the Mississippi River. The movie, "Due Date," will star Robert Downey, Jr., and Zach Galifianakis, and the scene here will be of the two crossing the river, headed to Los Angeles for the birth of Downey's character's first child. Doubles to the actors were used in the filming here. The film is due out in November 2010 and is a comedy by Warner Bros. The Director is Todd Phillips. It will also star Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan (Downey's wife). Galifianakis plays his road trip mate in a comedy that Phillips calls "a buddy comedy without the buddies."
