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.

Yesterday's Flea Market

Note the beautiful Magnolia blossom over the flea market.  If you click on the picture you can see it up closer.


Across from us, Walter Osborne, who was campaigning for Chancery Clerk.  There were several booths set up for campaigns.  He was giving away free water and balloons.

Gordon Cotton, in the blue shirt, is the former curator of the Old Court House Museum.
  
Bob was happy that we started selling trees.  It was a very slow morning but by mid-day things started picking up pretty fast.  We are happy to get eight trees sold.  At the last flea market we had doubled that.  This one was rather small and was also another flea market downtown at RiverFest going on at the same time.

Mary Louise Nosser, in her Southern Belle attire, greeting everyone at the flea market.  She gives tours at the Vicksburg National Military Park and we used to work together at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  She lives one block over from us and a very nice lady!

We had dogs galore at the flea market and here are two cuties!

Thanks CDGardens...it was a fun day for Bob and I in selling his copper trees and seeing friends and making new ones. We may have another place in town to take our trees called the "River Chicks"...which is a consignment and crafter's mall. The lady that owns it was so excited to see them and wanted them in her shop! :)
