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.

Spring Has Sprung




Yesterday, while walking our peek-a-poo, Katie, I noticed how our Japanese magnolia tree was budding out - true sign that spring is on the way.  We are having sunny skies now and the weather is really nice.  I love Spring and it's my favorite time of the year besides, Fall.  Katie is pictured here on our porch with leaves all around her.  I need to get the broom out and also start raking leaves, I guess.  We have this humongous oak tree that hangs over our house from next door and always, always have a ton of leaves falling all the time.  Spring has sprung!

How wonderful that you are getting some blooms to enjoy. They are gorgeous, and that Katie, so sweet.... ;)

I know...can't believe how quickly they started blooming out and it was nice sitting on the porch and enjoying the afternoon with my little Katie girl. She will be 12 years old New Year's Eve...she is getting up there!

Marian, the way Katie is laying on your porch, it is clear to all that she is in charge! Cute! Jack

Yes...you are right...she is in charge and she has been the best dog for us. Bob always wanted a lap dog and she fills the bill. :)
