A QUAINT Little Cottage

I love blue.
I love old-fashioned roses.
I love white picket fences and cottages and fancy fretwork. 
So I love everything about this QUAINT little house
 in Selma's Old Town!

Bienville Park Overlook

Ever since a sewer cave-in propelled the renovation of Bienville Park,
 the view of the Alabama River has been a lot less crowded.
 The thick overgrowth is gone, and it's a good location to see
 yet another angle of the Edmund Pettus Bridge,
 although NOT from this direction!

The Pink Box Bakery

From Beatrice to Selma with strawberry, red velvet, pound
 and caramel cakes, homemade bread and cookies,
The Pink Box Bakery sells its goodies on Water Avenue
 every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
 Find them in front of The Harmony Club!
 I bought the bread...delicious!

PAINTINGS by Joanna Nichols

Joanna Nichols' love of nature sparkles through her PAINTINGS of flowers,
fruit, landscapes and animals.  A Selma artist since the turn of the century,
 she is Artist of the Month at the Selma Art Guild where her works
 will be on display through this weekend. Nichols began drawing and painting
 as a young girl in Northumberland, England, and she later married
 and moved to the U.S. where she spent more than two decades
 as an art student and art guild leader in Stamford, Conn.
 In Selma, she says she has been intrigued by the old buildings,
 vehicles and "remnants of the past"
 which she enjoys capturing on canvas.

Charlie's Place

Charlie's Place: It's fast food that's homemade, served in the historic 
Harmony Club building and with an atmosphere that promotes Selma.
 Decorated with local memorabilia and business signs, this new restaurant
 offers huge tasty burgers, and the fries are sliced right from a real potato.
 OR, you can try the pimento cheeseburger that I am told is fast becoming 
their specialty OR a salad or grilled chicken sandwich. 

I liked the fast-food style of placing my order at the counter,
 fixing my own sweet tea, then taking a seat while they prepared my order.
 And no doubt, you will meet Charlie. He's the hospitable type
 and makes sure his guests are happy!

Field of Prairie Buttercups

If you drive out U.S. 80 West, many fields have turned bright yellow
 with prairie buttercups. While visually striking, farmers don't want them,
 because they are a weed that can irritate the stomachs of livestock.
 However, the buttercups aren't very tasty so livestock tend not to eat them,
 picking between the blossoms for the grass beneath.
 Apparently, this is a very good year for the buttercups!

Earth Day

                                                         Psalms 24:1
                     "The Earth (is) the Lord's, and the fullness thereof;
                               the world, and they that dwell therein."

So, among the many unusual items at last weekend's U.S. 80 Hi-way Sale 
was this sign, which I believe, speaks for itself!

Patriotic Rocker

This child's rocker painted in red, white and blue and inscribed
 with the Pledge of Allegiance was by far the most patriotic item
 I found at the Historic U.S. 80 Hi-Way Sale!
 I didn't buy it but certainly had to have a photo of it!
 I wonder if it sold.
