It has been a busy crazy day here for me. First off, had to take my husband to his Doctor's appointment and that took almost two and half hours. Afterwards, we went by McDonald's and Bob got a chocolate sundae and I love their wild berry smoothies and drove to the Louisiana Circle to enjoy the scenery. No barges came by but as we were leaving a small boat had just passed under the bridges headed up the river towards where we were parked. It's been really nice and breezy here in Vicksburg today. From the photo it looks like you can see more and more of the sandbar as the days go by with the MS River dropping. We left and went by the hospital to visit my brother, who is not doing very well. He may be going back into a nursing home by middle of next week. He also, may have to give up his apartment before long because he's not able to take care of his needs anymore. We came home and had lunch and my daughter and grandson came over to visit us and brought some boxes for us to carry Bob's copper trees in for our trip to Water Valley next weekend for the Watermelon Carnival. My daughter works for Riverwalk Casino here in Vicksburg and was able to get the boxes and will do the job perfectly. After they left, I tried to get on my computer to blog and it was acting crazy again. I have a bad feeling that my computer is about to give me a really hard time. It has been hanging up a lot and had to shut it down and reboot. So, I finally made it to post something today. I really need to backup some of my documents and pictures soon before something bad happens. I may have to get my computer reformatted and start all over. Thank goodness I have a grandson that can do all of this tech stuff for me. He is my computer guru! :)
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.
