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.

Grandson In Swim Meet


Vicksburg Swim Association members from Vicksburg Catholic School are, from row, from left, Connor Clark, Slade Kingston-Miles, Bree Butler, Bekki Johnson and David Osburn.  Second row, from left, Gabe Riveros, Stephanie Riveros, Dixon Stone, Blaine Butler, Katelyn Brock, Christie Johnson, and Michael Corbin McClain.  Back row, from left, Wally Wibowo, Cicily Chiarito, Zoe Kinsella, John Phillips, Andy Bell and Morgan Stone.  Other student members are, James Trichell and Thomas Trichell.

My step grandson, John Phillips, will be competing in the Stamm Family Invitational which is a swim meet in memory of Alan Ebersole on June 4-6, 2010.  Alan was a Princeton sophomore of Vicksburg and graduated from St. Aloysius High School and a member of the University's Men's Swimming and Diving team.  He died in an accident (broke his neck on a submerged rock and drowned) in the Atlantic Ocean off the Florida coast and was 20 years old.  His grandparents are our neighbors and the swim meet will be only a couple blocks away at the City Park.  Bob and I wish John good luck in the swim meet.

I used to swim when I was in high school. Oh I would love to have the time to swim again. I was in amazing shape, swam 3 times a day. How long ago that was now. :) I hope your grandson does well in his meet.

I used to swim also and loved it...it has been so long for me also. It is a good way to exercise for sure. Thanks for the good wishes for my step grandson. We hope he will do well also...have to wait and see. We have thunderstorms forecast and I hope that does not mess up the meet to much. Maybe it will be a hit and miss thing. Thanks for coming by. :)
