Gold At The End Of The Rainbow



Huntsville Depot Museum Rainbow

…Yellow Brick Road

Here’s a shot I decided to dig out of the morgue. Some believe that Goodbye Yellow Brick Road was somehow
inspired by the Golden Brick Huntsville Depot Museum. Bernie Taupin is known for his clever metaphoric lyrics,
but I don’t know if the reputation of the Depot goes beyond Huntsville…


2005.07.06
The Huntsville Depot (Museum) located in Huntsville, Alabama was constructed in 1860 and served as the Eastern Division Headquarters of the Memphis & Charleston Rail Road. The building is rich in history and was a strategic target during the Civil War. Painted a bright yellow gold sometime after the turn of the century, the structure is historically significant locally and nationally.

On this occasion, it would seem that the rainbow did indeed lead to the Depot of Gold, as evidenced in this photo taken by Jim Casey on Wednesday, July 6, 2005 when the remnants of tropical Storm Ivan allowed a sliver of sunlight through just at sunset.

    FLAG BURNING VIDEO!

    Absolute power corrupts absolute, and as I recall Ted Turner, wise man that he is, once called Christians “stupid.” He eventually apologized, but for what I don’t know. While Christians are foolishly attempting to take over government with religion, the potential grows for a flag burning amendment that would essentially set the stage for the dissolution of all basic constitutional rights to unravel like a braided sisal rope without a boy scout.

    Where’s Colin Kaepernick?

    Our leaders are in denial of what is obvious at face value. The biggest threat to the future of this country is the incompetence and corruption of law enforcement.

    Don’t Shoot Me: I’m Only The Keyboard Player

    The scene was oddly quiet, really, with several “islands” of people hovering around individual victims which included paramedics rendering first aide, and police attempting to ease the shock. Some were just sitting there, apparently shaken but not hurt, just trying to regain composure. Some were standing, milling about, with cell-phones in their ears, apparently talking to loved ones and family. There was also clutter strewn about that seemed to include untended school books, notebooks, backpacks, and papers. At one point, a woman from the Huntsville Convention and Visitors Bureau, located immediately across the street in the Transportation Bus Station building, came out rolling a hand truck with three or four cases of bottled water.

    Historic Depot Turntable Excavation

    The City of Huntsville recently, quietly, announced plans to build a new office building to be located at the corner of Church Street and Cleveland Avenue, that will house the offices of The Huntsville Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the offices of the City Public Transportation Service.

    Walking Tall With Donald J Trump, “General” Jeff Sessions, Marijuana Monopoly And An Outlaw Named El Chapo

    Donald J Trump doesn’t speak softly, but he sure as hell carries a big stick. If he can keep his own big toes out of the way, like newly affirmed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, it’s just barely possible that he can negatively impact crime, enhance medical care for all – and make America greater than ever before.
