The little parade on the sidewalk

Apparently they got tired of people coming in and asking how long they'd been in business.
They've arranged a cute display of kids' vehicles, but I don't know what that thing is at the end (the end opposite the trike). I'm not familiar with that wagon or whatever, with the handles sticking up. Anybody know what it is?

The Eagle has landed

The building at 1119 Alabama Avenue still exists. But no more quality is delivered to customers here in the sign of the proud King of the Skies. It's a Super Dollar Store now.

1119 Alabama Ave

Corner of Washington Street. If you do a 360 on Street View, you'll see this section of downtown Selma has seen better days.

Far-traveled title

The movie showing at the Academy on Friday and Saturday is "The Last Outpost," released in 1935, starring Cary Grant and Claude Rains, and set in Kurdistan during World War I. Still to come: the 1951 film of the same title, starring Ronald Reagan and Rhonda Fleming and set in Arizona during the Civil War. Then in 1987, episode 5 of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," set on Gamma Tauri IV in the 24th century.
