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.

Beautiful Outhouses

"Thunderboxes"

Chances are you've never used one, but all this month some of the prettiest outhouses in Texas are on display in downtown San Antonio
The "Thunderbox Road "art exhibit is going on at the Menger Hotel
Here are 9 of 12 full-sized  "Thunderboxes" (or outhouses) painted and decorated in true Texas style. 
Sonja Howle with the "Thunderbox Road" exhibit says, "It was created to pay tribute and showcase the talent we have in the Hill Country artists." 
In February, the exhibit will be at the San Antonio stock Show and Rodeo.
After their tour, the outhouses will be auctioned off to benefit 
medical research and the Western Art Museum in Kerrville.

I kinda like that one also Rick! Who would have thought to do something like this back then...

I remember those outhouses also Virginia...we even had one at a hunting camp that my husband belonged to. It was not dressed up that these are! Thanks for coming by Virginia and Rick and glad you liked them. A worthy cause! :)

Love it! Our town did something like this but it was with cows. I like the outhouses better. I bet they just make you smile when you ride by them....I know I would giggle each time
