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.

Square Watermelons???




Steve sent me this email the other day on square watermelons and thought I would share it with you, if you have not seen it already. We know that round watermelons can take up a lot of room in a refrigerator and usually round fruit often sits awkwardly on refrigerator shelves. Some smart Japanese farmers have forced their watermelons to grow into a square shape by inserting the melons into square, tempered glass cases while the fruit is still growing on the vine. I would say this is Charming, Just Charming!

That is very odd indeed. I wonder if that has anything to do with trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. :)

Very strange, but practical

I have never seen anything like it. At first I thought they were genetically engineered. It's cool that they just put them in a square box.

Who'd a thunk it! Makes sense, I guess.
