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.

Mississippi's Idol

This caption was in last Friday's Vicksburg paper of 18-year-old country rocker Skylar Laine from Brandon who is now in the top 5 of "Idol."  We all wish her the very best and please vote, vote, vote for Skylar!

She is really good. This is the best group of finalist they have ever had. Even the girl voted off last week was a tough hit. They will all go on to have fruitful music careers.

Marian Love Phillips said...

Yes, they all will vicomtesse. I'm so proud of Skylar. She reminds me of Reba McEntire. I love that she is a hunter also and Brandon is only 55 miles from Vicksburg.

After hearing her last night, I don't care if I ever hear Dusty Springfield's version of that song...it's Skyler's now!

Brandon - a very close friend of mine who was born in Vicksburg, passed and her family took her back to be buried in Brandon a couple months back. Some day I'm going to get down that way.

Marian Love Phillips said...

So sorry to hear about your friend and that she was from here. I was born and raised here myself and may or may not have known her.

I hope you do can get down this way...that would be great and you could come by and visit with us. :)

I'm so happy that you also like Skyler! It will be very tense tonight...we are getting so close to the wire now! :)

I was surprised Skyler didn't have the bigger fan base. I am going to be following her. She will no doubt get a recording contract.

My friend was Sara Bears, daughter of Ed and Margie Bears. He is a well known historian. Marge too was a historian but she passed aways several years ago. They had been living in Arlington, VA for a good many years. Not sure when they left Vicksburg.

I know all of MS voted like crazy. But she will go far. She is a natural. I heard on the radio this morning talking to her MOM that she will be on the Jay Leno Show tonight. Next week the Today Show, Ellen and also Kelly Ripa. She wants to come home and mud ride. Sounds like fun to me...been there done that! :)

Sorry, Did not know the Bears.

Thanks for your visit and have a Blessed weekend vicomtesse!
