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.

Lunch In The Courtyard

Today, my friend Joan and I attended the annual "Classics in the Courtyard".  The event offers a variety of entertainment through different genres of classic music.  There are local entertainers and local restaurants that provide music and lunch on Fridays from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. which began last Friday and will conclude on November 9th.  It is sponsored by a generous grant from ENTERGY Mississippi.  The entertainment is provided free and the lunch is $9.00 per person.  Reservations are required for lunch and today's was provided by Martins at Midtown/also on Facebook and had a delicious chicken salad sandwich with hot taco soup, cookie and sweet tea.

The diverse musical styles are a special treat for the community and it is also my old Alma Mater where I went to school for 12 years in one whole city block.  It is always fun to go back and be flooded with memories of my past.

This used to be a basketball court and was filled in with dirt and trees planted.

Entertainment was provided by Maria Signa and Jim Robinson at the piano. Introducing them is the Director, Annette Kirklin of the Southern Culture Heritage Foundation formerly St. Francis Xavier Academy.  

Bottom courtyard where we played and had our maypole dances.

Looking up at the top courtyard where a wooden walkway has been added.

Sun trying to peak through.  Predicting the temps to fall down in the 40's tonight and windy.

Writings on the walls in the tunnels.

I remembered climbing these steps off the courtyard many times.  If you turned left you would either go to the backstage of the auditorium or up the stairs to high school and to the right to the grammar grades.

Hwy 61 Coffee House painted sign in the tunnel.  The coffee shop is located downtown Vicksburg.  A great place to check out if you're ever in the area.
