The Other Selfie One Too

The Other Selfie One Too

Photo Caption

SELFIE! They say is the new word of the year. And I used to think I was some kind of narcissist because whenever I find a reflective surface when I’m out taking photographs, with a standard old fashioned digital camera, I stop and take a snapshot of myself.

The photo here, however, was taken with my cell phone, but of course I still used the mirror instead of turning the camera directly on myself. And why not? It’s like I invented the selfie before everyone else learned to shoot themselves with their cell phones.

The folks of Huntsville, and the traveling tourist from elsewhere, will probably recognize the big mirror as being in the Holiday Inn downtown. To me however, it was still really the Hilton, even though the Holiday Inn moved in and took over just a few years ago. I took the shot only a few weeks ago.

The sad news, of course, is that the life of the hotel, Hilton/Holiday Inn is over, having closed permanently just a week ago last Sunday. It’s just not right. I don’t see how they can do anything with that building other than turn it into some kind of shrine, or museum. Because everybody knows, ELVIS PRESLEY SLEPT IN THAT HOTEL! Let’s face it. They simply cannot demolish that building. Because if you’re from Huntsville, you know…

    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.

    The Contemptible Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore Going Down Again

    Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore

    Dear “Christian” Alabamian, please take off your shoes and socks and stick your toes out in front of a vehicle rolling by on the street. I only hope I can offend the morons that much who actually voted to return Roy Moore to office after he had been removed the first time. This argument comes up over and over again, and it truly is tiresome, but some people just don’t get it. It isn’t about your faith, it isn’t about whether or not you are a Christian, it isn’t about whether or not you agree with same sex marriage. It’s about the constitution stupid.

    Hillaryous | Rosa Parks (should) Be Insulted

    Truth be knowed, while all eyes were on “angry white males” as many in their ranks were being throwed under the buss to make room for black folks, white women like Hillary Clinton jumped-up and headed up front too, mostly displacing the potential for black men, and even some black women to advance.

    About The Downtown Rescue Mission (DRM)

    Many people need help or benefits, and they should get that help. However, the payoff to the DRM And it’s business operators is part of the problem, and I advise that they receive no contributions. And, maybe like the automatic AEA payroll deductions that proved to be extortive, United Way contributions should also be reevaluated.


    Well. I don’t really react that way since I usually read the complimentary paper at the burger breakfast joint. Usually, it’s just another customer obnoxiously hogging the premium still sitting on his otherwise empty table…

    Here are a few photo picks taken when visiting Oklahoma City in 1998. The memorial was still under construction at that time.
