It’s been almost 4 months since my last post – and I don’t know about you – but I have to ask – where are the Courthouses? Lots been going on this year – between relatives health, Mother’s ‘living’ situation, 50th High School Reunion, big trip to Alabama, a couple of trips to Florida – maybe you get the idea. On top of that, since the school year’s started – I’ve worked almost everyday I’ve been home. This is a good thing – I’m trying to save up money for a bucket list item (trans-Atlantic cruise) and a new hearing aid! This stuff doesn’t come cheap.
So – bottom line, we’ve not done any courthouses as of yet. So, rather than let the site languish – I’ve decided to post some of the interesting photo sets from our Alabama and Michigan trips. First up is Alabama. We visited the Florence area of Northwest Alabama – the Quad Cities (Florence, Muscle Shoals, Sheffield and Tuscumbia). They have an annual blues-Jazz fest in honor of local musician W. C. Handy. See the world’s only Coon Dog Cemetery and a Frank Lloyd Wright house. There’s lots in Tuscumbia including the Colbert County Courthouse, the Tuscumbia Train Depot Museum and the early Alabama Plantation home called Belle Mont.
