I drive by this old round-topped building each day as I go to the new RE/MAX building shown here in the background.  Each day I wonder how much longer it will last.  The tenant has moved and it does not have a "for rent" sign on it.  Rumor is that it will be gone soon so perhaps it needs a little...
 While listing a house this past week we walked through and I gave my usual speech about how the house needs to be depersonalized.  I tell the owner that folks look at the personal items instead of the house.  And right then....right there....I did it!  I fell in love with the very personal pictu...
So many times I have hated this intersection especially since they have been working on the by-pass from Hwy 267 South to Hwy 36 West.....because I'd get to that intersection and have to wait with foot on brake to keep from going backward because of the hill I'm parked on while waiting for all th...
 This is one of my favorite old Searcy pictures on a post card.  I like the way it was noted at the top, "Stayed here once."  And the old cars gathered around show its popularity with Searcy folks.  I have written several blogs about it.  But this one is perhaps the saddest one.  Look what happen...
 A picture from our own White County is on ebay right now.  It is a picture with the inscription "16th Section Singing School"  teacher Floyd Bradberry or Floyd Brobbery.  At the ebay site there are close-ups of parts of the picture so you can see if any of your relatives are there.  If it was a ...

 History is fun, isn't it?I found this old Searcy High School handbook from 1960.  They were strongly made so it is still in good shape with a pretty red cover.  On pages 10 and 11 I found some rules that made me wonder.  First, I noticed fees that students paid.  I sorta halfway remember that wh...
This picture is taken from a 1962 Searcy High School yearbook and there is a "Save the Rialto" campaign going on in Searcy AR so it needs to be shared. It is rather dark BUT the names of the people in the photo of the Rialto Theater area are shown.  It is an unusual photo of the historic theater ...
These are lovely old pictures of a house or houses that were probably in Searcy AR.  It was loaned to me by the Cargile Auction team to share with you.  There is to be an auction of the Shoffner Estate on March 19 2016 with lots of antiques, real estate and collectible items.  This appeared to be...

And some of us are bargain shoppers.....we go at sale time.....35% off.....65% off..........nothing wrong w...
