Today is my great grandson, Tidus's, 4th birthday! I wish I could be with him to celebrate but he lives in Great Fall, Montana. He's very fond of cars and trucks and has a lot of them to play with. I found out that next year he will be going to Disney World and the family will come through Vicksburg on the way. It will be so exciting to see him again because they can grow up so fast. Wishing my little Tidus a very Happy Birthday and I love you very, very much! Great Gran Gran xxoo
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.
