Gwen and I decided to check out the world’s largest functioning jukebox, which is located in Huntsville, Alabama. It’s 22 feet tall and built on the side of a building.
The jukebox has inferred cameras and songs are played based on where people stand on the sidewalk. It was cool that we didn’t have to pay to listen to the music; however, getting it to play a specific song was a bit cumbersome.
We stood on the sidewalk, listening to the music, and laughing about the whole thing. It was an interesting thing to experience.
Safety Day is an event that occurs every year at Lowes in Athens, Alabama.
It was started after two children lost their lives in a house fire. It’s a fun event for the community, but it is also educational. They give away smoke alarms and information on what to do in case of an emergency.
The Galactic Holmes Art Mural is on a law building at the corner of Holmes Ave and Washington Street in Huntsville, Alabama. The artist is Jesse Andrews. the mural took a year to create and for days to paint it.
The Coosa River passes through Ohatchee, Alabama. During the Civil War there was a ferry station in Ohatchee that was used to move supplies for the Confederate Army.
Part of the Northern Army had just taken Decatur, Alabama, which is located on the banks of the Tennessee River. It also had a railroad passing through the city and a developed highway. Decatur was a vital transportation hub at the time.
Their next battle was in Ohatchee. They took control of the ferry and crippled transportation options going through Alabama. It was a small battle, but it was also a devastating blow to the Confederate Army.

I was driving through Sylacauga, Alabama, and I saw a local museum that looked interesting. The museum was free and had a mix of art and historical exhibits.
There was a family reunion in the event room at the museum. I didn’t plan to crash a party that day, but the opportunity just presented itself, so I did it.
I ended up eating some of the best macaroni and cheese I have ever tasted. I thought about sending a letter to the museum to tell the person that set up the party how much I loved that macaroni and cheese (singed by the party crasher).
Mom and I came across this drive through museum in Seale, Alabama. It was interesting, but also a bit creepy.
The museum is unique and worth visiting if you are ever in the area.
