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 Night to Remember on the 'Sip

The United Way kicked off its campaign in a big way by having for the first time, "Supper on the 'Sip."  The picture above is showing volunteers and vendors getting ready to set-up and greet 500 guests on the Old Mississippi River Bridge.  It was cloudy after downpours Wednesday but by Thursday afternoon it had let up.  Here are some pictures I took while my sorority sister, Pat and I got ready to attend a night to remember on the 'Sip!   

Beautiful fall arrangements on the bridge at the entrance on both sides.  

Ralph Miller playing on the bridge.  He is a singer, musician, songwriter, 60's, 70's, Easy Listening Folk & Pop.  

Myself with my sorority sister, Pat really excited about joining in on a fun night on the bridge.    

We are finally moving towards the vendors!

Here comes a Kansas City Southern train eastbound and the first of three trains during the evening.

A Union Pacific train going west.

Looking towards the Ameristar Casino from the bridge.

M/V Ron Callahan northbound heading for a sharp turn at Delta Point.

Wide angle of the Mississippi River and the banks of Vicksburg.  

A nice long table to sit down to eat and rest.

Vicksburg's lights on the Mississippi River.

Another Kansas City Southern going east towards Vicksburg before we left for the evening.

Lights from the city casting a nice glow on the low hanging clouds over my hometown of Vicksburg on the Mississippi River.  What a night to remember by all and was a huge success!  Looking forward to next year!
