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.

Little Miss Emma

Yesterday, I got to see my youngest granddaughter for the first time in almost a year and my has she grown. After spending the day with her, she is still a little afraid of me and by the time she leaves I should be able to hold her. I can still get the kisses in. She is staying with her Maw Maw and step-Grandpa in Richmond, LA, so she is around them more than me. The family got together here in Vicksburg for the first time around noon yesterday and we all enjoyed that. It was so hot here at 100 degrees. Later I went over to Louisiana and helped babysit her while my daughter and her hubby (Dennis) went to his 25th class reunion at the Tallulah Country Club. I'm only putting a few pictures on here....I doubt if I can get all 18 I took on one post. I got a little carried away...but that's what Gran Gran's do!

A Gran Gran's job is to get out the picture brag book and share.

She will probably warm up to you just before it is time to leave. I was that way when I was little and lived a long distance from my maternal grandparents. ;)
