There was so much activity on the MS River near the bridges and at the MS overlook circle this past Wednesday, when I went by the first overlook and spotted something in the sky. This is my favorite spot to take pictures of river traffic. Of course, barge traffic was closed during the removal of the sunken barge on the I-20 pier. If you notice in the bottom picture two ladies and a little boy are flying the kite at the Riverfront Park. You can barely see the kite and is located above the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers boat near edge of the tree in the sky. It was a windy and beautiful sunny day to fly a kite!
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.
