Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc...
Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

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.

Kicking Off Our 50th Class Reunion


This evening at 6:00 we will be kicking off our 50th class reunion at The Ware House which is located in the middle of historic downtown Vicksburg (catty-cornered from The Valley at 1412 Washington Street). It comprises of five buildings built in the mid 1800's and each one has been meticulously refurbished. There are two bars on the premises...The Lounge and The Sports Bar & Grill.
Tomorrow our picnic will start at 11:00 at the Knight of Columbus Home. At 5:30 we will have Mass at St. Michael's Catholic Church and I have been chosen to be one of the gift bearers. After Mass we will all assemble in the Parish Hall for cocktails and the alumni banquet will start at 7:30. The class of 2009 and our class (1959) will be recognized. The guest speaker will be our own class member, Dr. Edward "Ed" Habert of Kirkwood, MO and of Destin, FL. We have approximately 27 classmates coming with their spouses and extended family members. There were 20 girls from Saint Francis Xavier Academy and 19 boys from St. Aloysius...three from each class are deceased. We are all looking forward to a great time and making more wonderful memories.
