My grandson, Carlton Thomas, is 21 years old today. This picture was taken this past weekend while on vacation in Gulf Shores, Alabama. He had a wonderful time and somehow a big wave came along and washed away his glasses. It's a good thing he had an old pair back home in Vicksburg! Even at that, he had a wonderful time and was with his sister and family as a surprise trip for an early birthday celebration. Wishing Carl a very Happy Birthday and I love you so much! Gran Gran
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.
