Pilgrim Turkey

TURKEY is the obvious choice for the letter T over at ABC Wednesday,
 but this particular bird appears undecided about whether he is a pumpkin, 
a pilgrim or a turkey! Whatever, he looks friendly enough
 to be a Thanksgiving centerpiece.

Simply Making It at the Artisans' Fair

Simply Making It was among 20-plus vendors that brought homemade wares
 to Sturdivant Hall's annual Artisans' Fair last Saturday.
 The Spencers of Marion Junction make natural skincare products
 including goat's milk soap and a sugar scrub.

The Downtown Ginkgo Tree

The ginkgo tree by the library showed its full splendor last week.
 But after last night's big freeze, those golden leaves are likely dropping. 
To the left is the clock tower of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church.

Fall at the Fountain

Go ahead.

Stop by the municipal park and sit on a bench.

Relax with the rustling of red leaves and gentle splash of the water. 

Listen to nearby church chimes play a hymn on the hour.

It can be hard to believe that you are on Selma's main street,
 recently named one of Alabama's seven best!

Skywatch, The Blues are Back!

Blue skies and cool weather are back in Selma after a few days of rain and fog. 
 Trees at the library are really showing their harvest colors just before Thanksgiving.

Vintage Rexall

The vintage Rexall sign at Pilcher-McBryde Drugs downtown is one
 of at least three just alike in Alabama. The others are at Rockford and Eastaboga.
 These orange and navy neon signs were manufactured in the 1940s and 50s.

 until sundown Nov. 19.

As the Sun Goes Down

As the sun goes down, a boat cruises toward the city marina.

A jet slices the sky on its way south.

The Pettus Bridge hosts another group of walkers,

 and traffic heads home.

Waiting for the Walk

While waiting for the Walk for Veterans to begin last week,
 these young people found a spot in Songs of Selma Park
 to sit and view the river.

November Sunset

Leaves slowly change their hue along the Alabama River;
 meanwhile, Selma finally got a couple of clear skies and spectacular sunsets
 this week! This view looks east from the Pettus Bridge toward
 the railroad trestle in downtown Selma.
