Today is my granddaughter, Lucy's, 13th Birthday and she's officially a teenager now....so look out! Her Mom is throwing her a Birthday Party bash and I'm looking forward to attending. I'm also hoping to take her to the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club, for a Youth Hunt, in November in the Mississippi Delta so she can harvest her first deer. I took her brother, Ethan, last year but unfortunately he did not get one but had a great time trying. He's 16 now and over the age limit for a Youth Hunt. Wishing my dear Lucy a very Happy Birthday and I can't wait to visit with her this afternoon and celebrate her special day. Gran Gran loves you so very much! xxoo (Photo taken May 15, 2010)
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.
