Sweet Home Alabama – Lynard Skynard

After I pulled up the photo of Jeff Cook of the Alabama band last week, I took a second look at the photo set I have of Lynard Skynard hoping to find a shot suitable for a future TOCC TV cover. Alas, the band is worthy but my photography is not. Well, reall it is, but putting a horizontal aspect ratio onto a verticle cover just isn’t going to fit.

Jeff Cook Of Alabama Signs Off

I don’t really think that Jeff Cook has been hanging out on the square in downtown Huntsville for 107 years. The photo above was taken in 2005 when the fiddler guitarist of legendary country/pop band Alabama stopped over in Huntsville to sign autographs at the historic Harrison Brother’s Hardware store in downtown Huntsville.

But again it seems I am wrong. Because she continues to come back and sit in the same spot, or sometimes just down the way, on the same power lines.

The Birds Nest

To my chagrin, I really had no other choice but to place the bird condo in another spot out front – but hopefully not too very far away. I watched for quite awhile after moving the nest, and finally I began to loose hope as the little bird didn’t seem to figure out where the new location was, or if she intended to resume her matronly duties.

Building Walls And Fences

With all this TOCC about building a wall between the US and Mexico, I thought I might have a few examples that the next president might want to consider before getting started. This photo gallery consists of images, a few of which have been seen on TOCC TV before, that are mostly unremarkable except that they have some detail or an aura that makes them somewhat interesting in their own right.
