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.

The Natchez National Cemetery

This was my first trip to the Natchez National Cemetery in Natchez, MS, this past Sunday. My friend's husband passed away in January and I made the trip with her to visit his grave. I took a few pictures to show you the cemetery.    

Rows and rows of soldiers that were cremated in this section.  When a wife dies she will have her name engraved on the back of her husband's tombstone, if she chooses to be cremated.  

Robert "Bobby" Lane Armstrong 
 Thanks for serving our country and may you rest in peace.  

Memorial services for Robert "Bobby" Lane Armstrong, Jr., was held at 5:30 p.m. Monday, February 2, 2015, at Christ Episcopal Church in Vicksburg with the Rev. Samuel B. Godfrey.  Burial was held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday February 5 at Natchez National Cemetery.  

Mr. Armstrong died January 12, 2015 in Natchez.  He was 68.

He was born and worked in Monterrey, California as a police officer and retired 12 years ago in Vicksburg. Survivors include his wife Linda Johnette Armstrong; a daughter, Rosie Irene Armstrong, two sons, Robert Lane Armstrong III and Jack Russell Armstrong.
