My friend, Addie, who lives in Texas sent me some more pretty pictures of Bluebonnets which is also the Texas state flower. If you are ever in the area, the best place to see these beautiful flowers are around the Fredericksburg area near Loop 337 in New Braunfels from River Road to I-35; Highway 306 from New Braunfels to Purgatory Road almost to Canyon Lake and Highway 290 between Burton and Hempstead.
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.
