Hunting @ Christmas Place

Deer coming out of the woods to get something to eat.  

Marian and I had a very nice weekend at the Christmas Place Plantation Hunting Club northeast of Vicksburg near the edge of the MS Delta.  Our friend, Rex, of Deer Camp Blog, invited us to come up and try one more last shot at getting a deer with a primitive weapon or a chance at a hog with my .270.   

A feeder was set up behind the camp and we enjoyed watching the deer walk out with a nice buck coming in to get something to eat.  We really had a great time and will be posting more pictures of my last hunt of the 2010-2011 deer season.

My New Hunting Knife

Myself, with Billy Foster

Billy Foster is a knife maker here in Vicksburg and we have become good friends. Recently, I had him make me a knife with a mammoth handle, that I picked out, with a Damascus steel blade.  Today I went to his workshop and picked it up and it turned out really nice.  Below are some pictures of my "NEW" junior bowie knife that I am really excited about!   

My initials on the Damascus steel blade.

My Nurse Candy

This is my nurse, Candy and I, taken in our living room by my wife, Marian.  Candy comes to see me once a week to keep me in line and to check my vitals.  I also have to take a B-12 shot every two weeks.  She works for Amedisys Home Health here in Vicksburg and is a very good nurse and friend.

My New Camera

I recently purchased a camera exactly like my wife, Marian's, at a pawn shop for $80 bucks.  It is a FUJIFILM, Fine pix S1000, 10.0 Mega Pixels with 12x optical zoom.  She purchased hers at Wal-Mart a couple of years ago.  I have been wanting a camera like hers and just could not pass up this opportunity when I saw it.  I can now take pictures while sitting on my deer stand or whatever I want.  It has opened a whole new world for me and I am enjoying it.  Here are a few shots that I took recently. 

Our cat, Allie!

Marian, took a picture of me...

...and I took a picture of her.

In tonight's paper was a picture of this showing the ice slowly melting from the Greek goddess Hebe's feet as temperature began a slow march from the weekend low of the 20s.  Bloom Fountain on Monroe Street was built in 1927 after Vicksburg resident Louis Bloom willed money to the City of Vicksburg.

My Allie Cat

Our next door neighbor,Tricia, moved away and gave us one of her cats because she could not take the cat with her to her new apartment.  So my wife, Marian and I took her in.  Allie is three years old and has settled in with us and our peek-a-poo dog, Katie, in the past eight months.  Yesterday, was a really balmy day and we decided to sit outside and enjoy the day.  Allie was on the patio table joining us and checking things out.  Here are a few pictures that Marian took of me with Allie.  She also sleeps with me and gets in my lap when I'm watching TV.  She is my lap cat and I love it!

Myself, Robert "Bob" Phillips
