Today we celebrated my youngest granddaughter Kate's 2nd birthday with family at her Maw Maw and Granddaddy's house in Louisiana. My youngest daughter and son-in-law drove all the way from Virginia with Kate's big sister, Emma, to enjoy a very nice birthday party with pizza, cake and ice cream. Tomorrow more family is coming in for a big cookout before they all have to leave and go back home next week. It all worked out great with Emma, who is 7 year old, being on Spring break. I am so blessed to have 6 beautiful granddaughters and 3 grandsons and 2 great grandsons in my life. One happy and lucky me!
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.
