The picture above was taken last Friday by myself of the Grand American Queen leaving town in the Yazoo Diversion Canal to the MS River northbound. I love taking pictures of riverboats just like my Facebook friend, Marty Kittrell. The riverboats come to our historic civil war town to tour our Vicksburg National Military Park and points of interest. Recently, he made a video of pictures taken of several riverboats that have visited our hometown. Enjoy the video below and you can see what a great photographer he truly is.
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.
