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.

    Obama Wins The Simmering Wrath

    It isn’t the historic first term of the first black president of the United States. But, it might be considered the historic first term of a new president of a new nation.

    THIRD TERM! Obama Trumps Election With Executive Order

    Really, for all the circus posturing, I see the red flags flying over the big tent that say – hay, wait a minute, this is a free election in the greatest democracy the world has ever known, and they want to eliminate the most popular of presidential candidates, because they don’t like what he has to say about the most important and persistent political issues in the public’s mind? It’s absurd! It’s messed up! It’s unAmerican! It’s a threat to democracy, to free elections, and whatever pretense of constitutional government we have left – and it’s potentially a prelude to socialist dictatorship.

    Obama Smoked One Joint Too Many

    The rhetoric is false, deceptive, and dangerous. For Obama and the gun control nuts, this is still the United States of America, and there is still a constitutional process involved in changing policy and laws. The 2nd amendment doesn’t guarantee your right to own a shotgun for hunting, it does recognize your unalienable right to […]
