Our peek-a-poo, Katie, is 12 years old today! It was Bob's birthday in February 1999 and he wanted a lap dog. We saw an ad in the paper for peek-a-poo's and drove to Jackson and picked her out of a litter of puppies. We were trying to come up with a name for her after we got home and the next morning we were watching the Today Show on TV and decided to named her Katie after Katie Couric. She has really been a good dog but is getting a little feeble now. Wishing Katie a very Happy Birthday and we will get a special treat for her on her New Year's Eve Birthday!

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.
