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.

Snapshots of Jewish Cemetery





This tombstone was leaning forward.



Angel statue was holding real wilted roses.



Yesterday, after Bob and I visited my brother in the hospital, we drove through the Vicksburg National Military Park.  I had my camera with me and decided to pull over and entered the Anshe Chesed Cemetery, which borders west of the Park, to take some pictures of beautiful old weathered tombstones.  On the entrance plaque above, it says this is the second Jewish Cemetery and that the first one has never been determined.  The first burial was that of Meyer Meyer who died on May 16, 1865.  Here are a few snapshots that I took of this well manicured old cemetery.

Old cemetery's hold a lot of interesting history, but frankly they give me the creeps and I rather walk around them then though them.

I understand your feelings Othmar. The only thing that gave me the creeps while there was an opened grave for burial this morning with a canopy over it. The lady's body was being sent from Memphis, TN, for burial according to the newspaper. Other than that, I enjoyed walking through and taking pictures. This way you can see the beautiful tombstones and I did it for you! Thanks for coming by...it is always a pleasure my friend. :)

My wife is the same, she too likes taking images of old houses and graveyards. It's very interesting but like I said my feelings are mixed when I visit these places.
