Deer Hunters -vs- Aliens


Today they are releasing the new movie Cowboys and Aliens. I am planning on going to see it but I don't know what the big deal is. We have problems with those pesky aliens every weekend at the famous Christmas Place.
Those guys are always zipping around in their saucers, scaring the wildlife, blasting right and left with their ray guns, snaring unsuspecting hunters for their lurid experiments, creeping around trying to take over the world, and in general causing all kinds of chaos and havoc. We really hate a bunch of pesky aliens. Go see it! See what a weekend at our camp is really like!

Tunica Or Bust


or "How to Pay Camp Dues"
The Mississippi Coalition of Appraisers is holding their annual convention at Tunica starting tomorrow and I need to go to earn my CE hours.

What a deal!!!! Will be back Monday with a report on all my big winnings!

The Love Seat Hog

Trent has been after those hogs all summer and this weekend he headed down to camp again with his wife Shelley to hunt. It was a pleasant day out and they sat in the love seat swing to talk and enjoy the afternoon before he left to hunt. It was a quiet romantic day and as they taked he stared into her eyes, they moved closer together and suddenly there was a loud G-R-U-N-T as a big hog ran across the yard. Holy Crap! Trent jumped up, Shelley fell over (still puckered up), Trent raced into the house, grabbed his gun and started sneaking across the yard while hiding behind the little peach tree. A whole covey of hogs appeared!
The hogs congregated in the big field behind the camp without a care in the world as Trent sneaked, snuck, crept up on them.
Trent finally remembered to load his rifle, took a rest and BAM! the biggest hog fell. The hunt was over and another hog on the pole.

Fourth Of July Recap

It was close but we made it through the weekend without anyone getting shot or stabbed. I almost had to shoot myself Sunday as my golf game completedly disappeared and I hacked it around horribly.
Saturday was different. This was the day of the Howell Open and my team ended up with a ringer. Betty Bullion made her debut in the Open and proved deadly to the other teams. She sank a couple of 20 foot birdie putts and chipped another one in for a birdie as we kicked the crap out of the other teams. Paul, Betty, Greg and I won enough money off those losers to last until next year.
Sunday was different and Paul and I went to Oxford to meet Bill Howard, Mark Larson, and Bob Schull. I got the crap kicked out of me, but I do enjoy playing golf with those guys and the Ole Miss Golf Course is in perfect condition. The upside was that this was the annual time of year that Paul has to pay Mark after he gets beaten to death on the golf course.

Monday mroning the guys played again and Bebo won all of his money back as I still played horribly and Paul had not shaken off his defeat on the previous day. Will post the party pics of Saturday night and the big party at Aunt Marilyns later.
