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.

Flea Market Fun

My gift from Marty Kittrell ~ Deer in the Park

Bob and I went to the Flea Market yesterday afternoon and really enjoyed ourselves. It was a great turnout with mild temps and bright sunshine for everyone. We eventually came upon a booth that I immediately recognized with the name Marty Kittrell's Photos. I had never met Marty in person but have always enjoyed his blog and was so excited to finally meet him. He is a great photographer and I have been so mesmerized by his great talent and the subjects of his pictures. He works for The Vicksburg Post and that's when I first saw his works. He has a blog now called, Marty Kittrell's Photos and he is a down to earth good Christian man who is to be admired in seeing God's hand at work through his photographs. He told me that he also met another one of our blogger friends earlier and was Janie over at Southern Lagniappe. I have never met Janie but have been in touch with her by email. I chose a beautiful collage of pictures by Marty with his signature and I'm so proud of it. He then let me pick out a picture that I would like as a gift and chose the one above of the "Deer in the Park." Thanks again Marty for letting us all enjoy your God given talents and my very special gift from you. I will always cherish it.

Marian, thanks for pointing the way to some great photos! Two of my favorite things in that photo, deer and Civil War Artillery.
