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.

Old Abandon City Bus Terminal

Years ago this was the city bus terminal where buses were stored and worked on. It's located at the corner of West Pine and Cherry Streets.  Notice the roof is missing!  My ex-husband lived in this neighborhood when he was young and told me that the second flood housed the MS Power and Light Company.  The man who worked there, a Mr. Head, at the MP&L used to take the neighborhood kids to the ice cream parlor and treat them.  Just to take a ride in an automobile back in those days was a treat in itself.  He also became friends with the bus terminal workman and he would let him play on the empty buses while they were being repaired.

Looks like an old abandon truck and other things still inside the building.

The building is now being taken over by Kudzu.  I don't understand why it is just sitting there and has not been torn down or restored.  I would imagine it was built back in the late 20's or early 30's.
