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.

Happy Birthday My Dear Friend
I met Jeanette back in the early 70's while we were working together at the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, Vicksburg District. She and I have become the closest of friends and I'm so fortunate to have had such a good friend in my life. We have shared tears of joy together, sadness together, and have leaned on each other throughout the years. She has always been there for me and we share a very close bond. Her oldest son, Charlie, was born on my birthday and the middle son, John Kirk, is my Godchild. The baby bed that I used for my four daughters (my mother gave as a gift), she used for her three sons who are college graduates, married with their own families to raise. She was also my Matron of Honor at my second marriage. I consider myself pretty lucky and blessed with her friendship. May your birthday bring you lovely memories, joyful moments, and glorious dreams. You deserve it Jeanette! Thanks many times over for being my friend. It means the world to me! With love and hugs!
