Mufasa Roaming The Neighborhood

Minnesotan Chris Lyon was well aware that a monster buck knew as “Mufasa” roamed his neighborhood. He also felt that his chances of killing the giant were scant. But thanks to some surprise trail-cam pics, that all changed a few days before the Gopher State’s youth deer hunt. Not long anger the season opened, Lyon’s son, Zerl, was wrapping a tag on a buck that had become a local legend.

My congratulations!  Lucky kid in our great wild outdoors!

Invited On A MS Canoe Trip By Layne Logue

I would have loved to have gone on this canoe trip and honored to be asked but since I cannot get up and down at the age of 80 years old, I had to turn it down.  When I was in my 40's I went on a canoe trip seven miles down the Buffalo River in Arkansas.  At least I have done it.  Wishing all a great trip and I know they will enjoy themselves with Captain Layne Logue at the helm.

 ***** UPDATE *****

Saturday: Partly cloudy. High near 75F. Low 52F. Winds are light and variable. Chance of Rain 13%.
Sunday: Partly to mostly cloudy. High near 75F. Low 52F. Winds S at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of Rain 14%.
The rain is moving away from the forecast. If there is a potential for a shower… bring a rain poncho… and possibly put your backpack or gear in a trash bag … or dry bag if you have it.
Since we have 15 people signed up right now (maybe 1-5 more)… I’m thinking the Delta Point Islands would be better and have more room. There will be hammock trees there too. See new attached Google Earth screenshot. It’ll be better exploring too. The freshwater otter movie was filmed on these islands. It’s a little more paddling upstream… but we have a break /stop at a sandbar… and we’ll go slow and easy.

The Promised Land

 I love this picture of my three-year-old Great Grandson William David "Will" reading the Bible. Last Sunday my daughter (Debi) was getting the boys ready for church and Mom (Lucy) said, "Where are y'all going?" Will said I'm going to the Promised Land."

Buck Tree

Wife, Jessie:
My husband killed all these deer in Mississippi over the years. He came dragging this tree in the house and I thought what on earth. Then he started putting the horns on. After he finished I loved it. The wood-carved turkey was a gift from our son.

I love you, Terry Joe Burgess. 34 years and more to come.

It's different and I love it too! Cool!

Vicksburg - A Diamond In The Rough

Photo by RickJames Bish on October 7, 2019.

(I was born, raised, and never left home.  I'm 80 years old now and can relate to a recent article in our paper, The Vicksburg Post).

Growing up in Vicksburg, I have seen the community evolve. 

I remember a thriving downtown as well as living through its sluggishness.  And now with the revitalization efforts being made, while it isn't the downtown of the 1960s, I see it once again blossoming.

The dining options in Vicksburg have taken on a new look.  While some folks live here bellyache about the lack of chain restaurants, I remember when the only one in town was the Dog N' Suds.

Chains now include Chick-fil-A, McDonald's, and Kentucky Fried Chicken.  Can you believe there was a time Vicksburg didn't have a Walmart?

How did we ever get along?

Like other small towns, Vicksburg has experienced economic struggles, but it hasn't kept us down.

Maybe it's because of our history.  Vicksburg is a community representative of many ethnic groups who arrived looking for a better life, and the River City offered opportunities.

Vicksburg is still evolving and it's exciting.  A couple of weeks ago, I attended a Vicksburg-Warren County Chamber of Commerce luncheon and was enthralled by what I heard.

Ed Gardner, the Director of Business and Economic Development for Entergy Mississippi, Inc. and served as the speaker for the lunch, praises the efforts being made in Warren County to attract new businesses.

He pointed out with ERDC, Hinds Community College, Alcorn, I-20, a major bridge, a Class 1 railroad, the electrical transmission lines located here along with the development of the new MCITy and efforts being made for the port development, Vicksburg could have the potential of garnering billion-dollar projects.

I don't know about you, but my ears perked up when I heard that dollar amount.

While in my opinion, Vicksburg has always been a lovely place to live, I have always felt the city was a diamond in the rough.

But with a little polishing up, it could shine brighter than ever before.
