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.

Chilling @ Flea Market

This past Saturday my husband Bob and I had a booth at the Old Court House Museum for the 29th Annual Old Court House Museum Flea Market.  Thousands of people filled the streets for the fall activities that was scheduled.  According to Bubba Balm, Old Court House director, an estimated about 4,500 people attended the flea market, while Kim Hopkins, executive director of Vicksburg Main Street said about 3,000 attended the Fall Festival downtown.

Bob and I sold his copper trees and paintings and did very well.  We also got to see many of our friends and family members helped us set the tent up/down.  We could not have done it with their help. Thanks guys!

Below are some pictures taken before and during the flea market.

Great niece, Anna Claire, Cassie (newly weds who got married at the Old Court House Museum this past April) and Bubba Love, nephew with Bob.

Our family team that help set us up!

Bubba took this picture of us after we got all set up.

We are ready to sell some trees and paintings.

Took a picture of our neighbors next to us.  The lady on the right is Angela Whittington who made jewelry and bought a pair of earrings.  Her Mother and I have known each other since the first grade at SFXA graduating in the Class of 1959.  The lady on the right had homemade preserves to sell and got some Strawberry Fig preserves from her.  

The law on parade!

This guy was across and down from us and blew his horn off and on.  

Up close picture of his antique horn.  He could also make the sound of a horse with his mouth to the delight of all the children...I loved the horn blowing myself.

The crowds kept coming and coming and coming...

This little girl's name was Anna and loved Bob's pictures.  She let me take a picture of her "new" face paint.  

 A cute little car but this little fella did not look my way!

Little boy in the car headed down the crowded street.

Dogs were all over the place.  Will post them tomorrow!

This nice guy had an unusual walking stick of a pelican eating a frog and neither was giving up he said!

Took this picture across from us.  I could not figure what was written on the street with chalk and had to write it down...to my surprise it spelled, PECANS!

It was a delight to see crowds of people enjoying themselves.

Bob's Christmas tree all lit up.  It was a good attention getter.

I have no idea why this lady was holding up her wreath unless she did not want the crowd to mess it up.

My only sister/sibling, Laura Love Ables, coming by for a nice visit.


We walked around together and I took pictures of these cool looking fire pots for sale
