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.

Our 1959 Graduating Class
Will be celebrating our 50th Class Reunion this coming Friday and Saturday. It will be great to see my classmates again. We will have our "Ice Breaker" at The Ware House downtown Vicksburg where we have rented a suite. We all look forward to our milestone celebration. I have put together a memory booklet for all of us and is approximately 53 pages and is dedicated to our deceased. I also started a blog last year and named it, of course, Class of 1959 and have posted their autobiographies and pictures of basketball, football, etc., a gift to my classmates. Walter P. Little took me to my Senior prom and he went on to be a Doctor in Dermatopathology and was also a clinical professor of pathology and dermatology in Alabama. He is retired now and he and his wife live Mountian Brook, AL.
