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.

Sweet Allie Cat
I asked her recently how did they come about getting Allie. She said one night about 3:00 in the morning her husband heard this kitten meowing outside their window between our houses and got up and went outside and picked her up. They bonded right there. It was surmised that the mama cat must have dropped her because she was only about 3 weeks old. They went to Wal-Mart and got some milk and put it in a bottle. She was so hungry that she bit the nipple off.
When her husband got sick, Allie always stayed near his bedside and comforted him until he passed away.
Since Allie has become a member of our family, she is real close to my husband now. She does have a strange habit sometimes of walking around in circles. Don't know why she does that...but could be because she was traumatised and abandoned at an early age. Other than that, she has been a joy to us. Here are a few photos I took of her on our back steps the other day while I sat on the opposite steps.
