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.

Today is my bestest friend (in the whole wide world) birthday! She and I have been friends for over 40 years. We both worked for the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and she's still there working part-time for the Vicksburg District. We have been through a lot of stuff together and have cried on each others shoulders through the years. She has three grown sons, who are all college graduates and doing very well in life. Her three sons and my four daughters even shared the same baby bed that my Mom and Dad bought for my first born, Theresa. I'm so fortunate to have her as my dearest friend and I want to wish her the very best on her "60" Birthday. May she have many more birthdays to come!
Happy Birthday Jeanette!
