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.

Our 22nd Wedding Anniversary



Today is our 22nd Wedding Anniversary!  Bob and I met at the historic Hotel Vicksburg at a dance in the Coral Room back in 1985 and got married Easter evening on April 3, 1988.  Above is a picture of us taken by each other while sitting on our balcony overlooking the Alantic Ocean at Amelia Island Plantataion in Jacksonville, FL, where we spent our honeymoon. 

Yesterday, I had called in our names to our hometown radio station, River 101, to try and win some prizes.  Well, we won!  The package included a night's stay at Candlewood Suites, a new hotel that just opened last year, an anniversary flower arrangement from Tina's Flowers and Gifts and at DiamondJacks Casino/Hotel, a dinner in DJ's Steakhouse valued at $50.00.  We are very grateful and blessed that we have received the gifts.  Also, a beautiful arrangements of flowers from my Pi Alpha Kappa secret sorority sister.  Bob and I are really looking forward to enjoying our special day and our prizes!
