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.

On Top Of The World!

My stepdaughter, Karen and her husband, Ron, have a really nice home outside Santa Fe and is so high on a hill that they have a 360 degree view on 10 acres.  It is beyond awesome!  Their next door neighbor is Robert Redford with 1,000 acres of land.  You can see Los Alamos and other cities aglow at night.  The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular!  Below are some pictures that were taken at their beautiful home.

Myself, Bob and Karen getting ready to go into Santa Fe and spend the day with Ron who took our picture.

Where I had my coffee earlier.  So peaceful, relaxing and cool.

  
A beautiful entrance to a beautiful home!

Sitting on top of the world, Santa Fe style!

Ron, great granddaughter, Eilley, Karen and granddaughter, Brittany making over a grasshopper that she had caught.  So cute!

Got a shadow of us on their adobe home while sitting and enjoying a beautiful sunset.

A gorgeous sunset behind the mountains!

It's a beautiful place to go and visit...glad we have family there which makes it twice as nice! You are 7,000 feet above sea level but you don't notice it as much until you are climbing up a hill. I climbed up the driveway and had to stop mid-way to rest. Just what you get used too. I heard not long ago that people who live at higher altitudes live longer because of the thin air. Appreciate you both coming by. Will get by to visit you both soon. Have a great weekend.
