Who remembers Po-Dunk?  I may have blogged about this little car lot before.  The man who ran it, Vernon Duncan, was a hard-working man who built the car lot up year by year.  In this picture the house that was beside it still stood and was occupied by the Person family.  This picture came from a...
Old yearbooks have become pictures of the past and some of the pictures are important.  Right now in Searcy AR a group has formed to try to "Save the Rialto."  The Rialto is an old movie theater that has been on the same block corner for years and years.  It is still in operation and anyone who l...
Way back in the 60's Searcy AR had no playground equipment for parents to take kids to play on.They could drive a distance and visit  a swimming hole called, if I remember right, The Bluff Hole, in Letona AR.  And there were probably some fishing holes where the kids could sit on the bank and thr...

(The yearbooks are becoming treasures for the advertising alone as time marches on.)I know several of them.  ...
Isn't this a fantastic picture!  It is for sale right now on ebay.  I love the clarity, the people in the foreground, the steeple on the side.  Wonder if it was also a church?  And I wonder what the attached little structure on the end of the porch was?  And I wonder where it was located in Bald ...
I wrote a blog about Searcy's own Joe Webb a few years back.  Here's the link to the blog if you want to read all about Rodger's Perfection, the horse, and his trainer.  Rodger's Perfection was the world's champion walking horse.Right now there is a book written by Joe Webb in 1967 called "The Ca...
This picture was forwarded to me from Searcy Supreme Sleuth Anita Hart Fuller.  She grew up in Searcy and everyone assumes that she knows everyone who was once in this town.  And she almost does!This appears to be at a train depot and we do have several expert railway sleuths.  The ladies behind ...
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...
