Got time to browse...for a while? This is one place to do it . Southern Antiques and Collectibles on Dallas Avenue is a haven for lovers of all things old and unusual. I even found a child's folding chalkboard, just like the one I had as a child! I once saw it on Antiques Road Show and was amazed it was now worth something like $200! As you walk to the door, check out the cute pumpkin farmer waiting to welcome you!

at the Kenan's Mill Bluegrass Festival
November 3. The old mill near town
will be grinding cornmeal once
that day, and visitors can listen to a
bluegrass band, take a wagon ride,
cross the swinging bridge over the creek or...
eat cornbread along with other food fare.
This photo shows the official T-shirt for the festival.

This is a picture of a picture, but here is the winning photo in the adult division of the riverfront photo contest sponsored by Arts Revive. The photographs were displayed on Riverfront Market Day. This view of the Alabama River is taken on a foggy morning from Songs of Selma Park. The Edmund Pettus Bridge can be seen in the background.

There's a big Tiger fight in Louisiana tonight when the underdog Auburn University Tigers battle the Louisiana State Tigers in college football. The game could have been bigger had Kentucky not handed then No. 1 LSU its first defeat last week. Tonight could be its second defeat.
This Auburn flag was photographed at Riverfront Market Day. Selma is an Auburn bastion, partly because it's the hometown of legendary Auburn Coach Ralph "Shug" Jordan, who coached opposite Alabama's Paul "Bear" Bryant back when I was in school. College football is much, much bigger than pro football in these parts.
Update: LSU beat Auburn 30-24 at the end of the game on a gutsy touchdown pass.
Congratulations to the Bengal Tigers!

Now this is what I call a farm truck! The old, no-frills International pickup trucks were true work vehicles...with vinyl seats, rubber floormats, 4-speed in the floor and no air conditioning. For early models, the buyer had to special order the heater. If trucks were still made like this, moms and dads wouldn't want to use them for the "family car," and city drivers would boycott these models. Teenage boys would return to sports cars for dating, and prices would probably still be cheap. Then, farmers wouldn't have to pay way too much for a truck! Three decades ago and before, work trucks cost about half the price of a new car. Now, there are no more work trucks. They're all fancy with fabric or leather interiors, CD players and power everything, and they cost twice the price of most cars.
This industrial-green beauty was on display last weekend at the Riverfront Market Day Antique Car Show.

This garden spider clinches a grasshopper that she caught in her web outside my kitchen window. I recently posted another garden spider that built a web outside the front door. I think this one chose the window, because insects are attracted to the light in our kitchen at night. Her web covers the entire exterior of the window. We just tell everybody that this is our "virtual" Halloween decoration! Anyway, we have enjoyed watching her patch and expand her web, although devouring other bugs is not especially appealing. (I took this photo through the kitchen window.)

I just noticed that this is Selma, Ala., Daily Photo's 200th post, so what better way to celebrate the occasion than with handcrafted heirlooms from quilters in the area!
