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.

A Hometown Christmas

I live in an historical Civil War town of Vicksburg, MS, on the mighty MS River.  I was born and raised here and never left home.  I wanted to share with you some pictures I took last Saturday night of a hometown Christmas all dressed up and getting into the spirit of Christmas.

Downtown at the corner of South and Washington Streets.  I lived 21 years at 2515 Washington Street, south of town, but our home no longer stands.

Santa and reindeer at City Hall.

Christmas Ball.


Candle with flower.

Looks like poinsettias!

Christmas stocking!

Parking area all lit up which used to be a 4 or 5 story bank here and was torn down.  You can barely make out St. Paul's Catholic Church in the background where I was first married and had all my children baptized with graduations and marriages.

Shooting star.

Christmas stocking.

Candy cane.

Another pretty candle with a flower.


The Yazoo & Mississippi Valley Station, now "The Depot" housing a museum and visitors center all dressed up for Christmas holiday.

"God's Christmas Gift," First Baptist Church on Cherry Street - every 15 minutes from the Family Life Center; majority of the program was outside.  My husband and I have been to this and it really puts you in the spirit of the REAL meaning of Christmas.

Luminaries at Glenwood Circle and area streets.

Mr. & Mrs. Robert "Bobby" Alvarado's lovely home on Cherry Street.  I know this couple very well and went to school with Mrs. Alvarado, "Myrtle," for 12 years and we are both in the same sorority together.

A lone luminary with a pretty lit bush in the background.
