I was teaching school.  Specifically, I was teaching Art in Searcy High School, Searcy AR.  There was a class to be offered in Atlanta Georgia that taught lots of good and fun things regarding teaching art.  One was caricatures and how to do them.  We all love caricatures, don't we?  So I spent a...
I wrote a blog last week about the pleasure I receive when passing by the little old English Tudor filling station in Bald Knob.  Lots of Sleuths have responded and I now have more pictures, more knowledge, and new friends.  It is on the Historic Register, was built around 1930 and was operated b...
When my kids were little they would have waded into this ditch and brought me a few cattails home for me to put in a big vase on the floor.  I loved them.....the kids too of course!I have not seen a decent bunch of cattails in years and years but there in Bald Knob AR a few days ago I found this ...
Each time I drive through Bald Knob Arkansas I admire this property.  It must have once been a filling station but who ever heard of an English Tudor filling station?The building is brick with Tudor trim.  It even has a curved outside doorway that probably led to the outdoor bathrooms.  Doors pro...

It is not that I can't remember all these folks.  It is because film technology was not as easy back then and the picture is not so clear.  Larry DeGroat (who can forget him?) is on the left and he is the one who shared this picture.  He also was instrumental in getting the Searcy Board of REALTO...
The Dutcher House - 702 W AcademyThe Bloom House - 708 W AcademyA new property has come on the market and it is right beside one that is also for sale.  Both are historic treasures in Searcy AR.  The listing agent provided information about this newest property on the market and it is worth shari...
I do think that I have become too interested in old yearbooks and the history that they hold.  Looking through this 1948 Harding University (then College) Petit Jean I found 4 people of interest on just one page.  Look at these professors at Harding at the time.Let's take them from the top.  Dr. ...
We see these things all the time now at the county fairs and other places where kids are expected to have fun but to really appreciate them, we need to read about how the first one was designed and when it was built.  This article is in the June 2015 issue of Smithsonian magazine.  The fine print...
