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.

Some Senior Fun

On Monday afternoon's I enjoy going downtown to the Vicksburg Senior Center to a dance class.  We mainly line dance now for about an hour and half.  When I joined back in the late '90's we had line dancing for an hour and then ballroom dancing for another hour.  The center is run by the City of Vicksburg with Jennifer Harper as the Director and lots of activities to enjoy. There are educational programs, exercises, card games, water color art, oil painting classes, bingo, a knitting class and open use of the computers.  My husband, Bob, enjoys the oil painting classes.  The Senior Center just had their Christmas Party at the Old Southern Tea Room this past Friday and this coming Friday will have ladies playing Dulcimers of Christmas tunes and Dirty Santa.  In January and February our Pi Alpha Kappa, Omega Chapter, meetings will be held at the center.  We are very fortunate to have this facility in our hometown.  Below are a few pictures I took last night at the dance.  We each brought some snacks for our little Christmas Party to enjoy.  I made some lemon cake cookies and will share that recipe with you.  They are very easy to make and delicious!
