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.

Congratulations John Gregory!

John Gregory Phillips

The Vicksburg Convention Center held the commencement exercises of the Class of 2012 for the Vicksburg Catholic School (St. Francis Xavier Elementary/St. Aloysius High School) this morning. John Gregory, my step-grandson, graduated with honors from the class of 38 students.  Bob and I are so very proud of him and he received two more additional awards at the ceremony.  John plans to attend Mississippi State in the fall.   Below are some pictures I took at his graduation.  

John received the Service Award and another award later in the program.

Getting his diploma!

Leaving the stage with all his awards.  They threw their hats up in the air but was not quick enough to get a good shot.

Step-son, Greg, with his Mother, Camilla, who flew here from Santa Fe, NM.
