Here's the Alabama River in "my eyes" catching a train crossing the trestle just east of downtown Selma. A local photography contest is giving generous cash prizes for the best photograph of this river or the Cahaba River in YOUR eyes, but time is wasting! Deadline is October 1. The contest is sponsored by Arts Revive, and photos will be displayed at Selma's Riverfront Market Day on

Chrysanthemums, just about my favorite potted flower of autumn, are in! I found a gardening center employee watering them yesterday and shot a photo. Soon, Selma's porch steps will be ablaze with potted mums and pumpkins.

This photo was taken a few years ago with my Pentax film camera.

There isn't as much cotton around here this year due to drought and a switch by some farmers to peanuts and corn.
If you want to know how much cotton it takes to produce a suit, a pair of jeans or a towel, check out this link.

There's not much left of the pre-Civil War Methodist Episcopal Church at Old Cahawba. The ruins are unstable, so please just look , and keep out! Old Cahawba Archeaological Park is the site of Alabama's first capital. It is located at the junction of the Cahaba and Alabama rivers.

Well...it seems our BiblioCat has selected The Moral Compass by William J. Bennett for her daily reading or perhaps moral direction! She certainly needs to learn how to mind her manners, because not a day goes by that she doesn't get into big trouble! Shortly after this photo was taken, she pushed a couple of other books out from the shelf and onto the floor. Perhaps she wanted to check those out too! This morning, I caught her on the breakfast table licking the stick of butter, and often I find one of my collectible angels in places where it doesn't belong. She has to be pilfering the curio cabinet! Finally, every time I turn on the computer printer, she rushes to the desk and pounces on the paper as it is delivered into the tray. And yes, this is the same kitten that looked so cute in that sack of corn.
Now, I am finished posting photos of the family cat...that is, until she has another photo moment!

So, if it's not an ant, but it is called an ant, and it runs like an ant, then what is it?
Go ahead and Google it if you want to or just go to this link.
By the way, this insect does not really kill cows, although its sting hurts so much that it feels like it would kill a cow!
