Well, today is my birthday and I'm so thankful that I have lived this long and been blessed with dear family and friends. Though it all, I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be a lady deer hunter one day. The picture above was taken when I was around 18 years old. It's one of my prom and Senior class play gowns and I also wore it during a Civil War re-enactment play called, Gunboats Around The Bend for the Playhouse. The ball took place in a historical home called, The Balfour House (circa 1830), which is one of Vicksburg's most historical houses. Home to Emma Balfour, Civil War diarist during the siege of Vicksburg, and later Union Headquarters for Gen. James McPherson and the Union forces. It was the site of a famous Christmas Ball when a messenger came to the house and reported approaching gunboats. The General announced that "This ball is at end " because the enemy was coming down the river. I wore a big hoop skirt under my gown with my hair pulled back with a wig of curls. I really enjoyed going from town to town performing on stage, dancing and meeting a lot of nice people. Sure is fun to go back and reminisce. I'm looking forward to spending my special day with Bob and family.

Think about these:
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq ....Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore.

The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal,' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery,' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians...It creates a hostile work environment.
