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.

Grande Caribe Cruisng Into Town
I was sorry I missed the opportunity to see the Grande Caribe cruise into the Yazoo Diversion Canal this past Tuesday. The picture of the ship was taken/posted by a friend of mine I went to school with, Shirley Ann Farish, on Facebook. Just so happened that the American Queen was also docked at our waterfront, she said. Directly behind the ship is the old Harrahs/Grand Station Casino Boat which has recently been auctioned off for scrap for $10,000. Nothing last forever!
According to their site the unique design of the ship allows for easy travel through shallow waters and narrow channels. It is mostly for active and inquisitive senior travelers who prefers small quiet ports to tourist traps. It holds 100 passengers, whereby you can socialize and make friends with the typically retired, well-traveled and sociable group on board. It has a BYOB policy and an informal dress code. During your cruise the captain and on board lecturers offer enjoyable informational commentary, as you cruise past the scenery. This ships crew, chefs, guest lecturers, outside entertainment, and land tours are all carefully chosen, to provide a pleasurable, memorable and relaxing vacation. Sounds like a nice cruise I would like to take one day! Check it out if this looks like something you may be interested in at Great Lakes Cruising dot com.
