I love this little fellow and treasure this egg.  It is a painting on an egg, ostrich egg I think, and I bought it years ago at a now-forgotten fund raising event.  It was painted by Phyllis Alexander, Searcy AR artist with a tremendous following.When touring properties, I always express pleasure...
Remember Cabbage Patch Kids dolls?  We seem to have a toy craze every year and this picture was taken to show the 1983 before-Christmas craze.  I thought sure I'd recognize someone in the photograph but don't.  Perhaps some of you Searcy folks will recognize yourself. It would also be interesting...
What a great old picture salvaged from a December 30, 1983 newspaper in Searcy AR.  My real estate career has been long and began in 1979.  I remember the love that went into restoring this old house so that the Yancey-Quattlebaum real estate firm could operate from this location.  They took grea...
Driving through Searcy AR makes us feel proud that our city is being maintained and that old buildings are being used and made beautiful.  Passing this one at 219 W Market made me slam the brakes and stop and take a picture.  I loved the touches of green that have been added and the sale signs ar...
This yearbook from Bald Knob AR is for sale on ebay right now.  I can't afford it but I do love the cover.  I have never seen this much creativity in a cover.  Tearin' It Up with a corner that looks as if they were ripping the page seems different and must have come from a creative art student.  ...
This is a picture that is unusual in that it is in black and white and shows the city of Searcy AR at night.  We are gazing East from Arch Street toward the First Methodist Church.  Almost no vehicles spoil our view of the streets and the parking meters.Who remembers parking meters?  I do.  You h...
 I remember enjoying going into this jewelry store in Searcy AR.  This photo which is borrowed from an old yearbook shows Mrs. Parrish who was always lovely and friendly.  It makes me wonder now whether folks still shop for fine jewelry.  There are so many pieces of flashy costume jewelry that on...
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...
