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.

My Happy Birthday Picture & Millie

My daughter, Kathy, took a birthday picture of me in our backyard with our new adopted dog, Millie.  I have had a very nice birthday today at 72 years of age. Kathy came over this morning and prepared a delicious Birthday breakfast for me, baked me a lemon cake and gave me three new tops to wear with my jeans.  I heard from all my four daughters, family and friends.  I am truly blessed and thankful to have live another year!

Thank you so much! Yes, she will bring me lots of joy. I did have to take her to the vet today because she had a kidney infection but got some pills for her and hopefully will have that cleared up within 2 weeks. She has finally settled down and looks like we are going to be just fine. Thanks for your visit and will try to get by to see you soon! Hugs to you my Swedish friend! :)

Thanks Rick for the birthday wishes...I really had a very nice one!

I will keep you updated on her and what she is doing. I do need to get by your site...will try real hard tomorrow. Have some bad weather coming soon and need to get off the computer. Will not be able to sleep with storms and high winds and possibly tornado weather during the night. Really concerned about the river being shut down and trying to get the oil up and now this storm might make things worse. I hope not...need to keep the traffic moving on the river. It's unfortunate that it happened.
