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.

Bob Wins 2nd Place

My husband, Bob, joined The Vicksburg Art Association last year before the showing of last year's fall show.  He did not enter anything but wanted to feel his way through it.  This year for the first time he entered two paintings and a large copper tree.  He has been making copper trees for a long time now and just started doing acrylic paintings since the Spring of 2011.  When we went by to enter his paintings for the fall show he asked if he could possibly enter his tree. They told him yes and would be in 3-D art.  Last night he won 2nd place with his copper tree.  He was so proud!  My daughter and brother-in-law also came by to see all the paintings, etc., and shared the good news.

My daughter, Kathy took a picture of us together.

A very large crowd showed up for the event.

Bob's art teacher, Joyce Grey, at the Senior Center also won 2nd place for her painting, Trouble In The Deep.

She also won Third Place for her, Hug Me, painting!

Brother-in-law, Chris Ables, really liked the painting above, Court of the Kings, and said it should have gotten a ribbon.

From the second floor - I took this picture.
