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.

The Bloom Fountain

After the parade for Malcolm Butler (Super Bowl hero) Saturday afternoon, I passed by the Bloom Fountain and took this picture walking back to my vehicle.  I have always admired this beautiful fountain which is named for the Greek mythology, Hebe, who is the goddess of youth.

The fountain was bequeathed in 1926 by Louis Bloom, a prominent Vicksburg Businessman.  It was designed and sculpted at a cost of $6,500 by Albert Weiblan Granite Company of New Orleans.

Hebe ~ Goddess of Youth!
