Here is still another picture of old town Searcy Arkansas.  This picture shows a group of happy kids who have won prizes for some contest.  Perhaps selling seeds?  I'm sure that my friend Paula Windsor Thompson, who is the tall girl in the picture, will tell me more in a comment.  She appears to ...

I wrote this blog just a few days ago and now I have the listing on this lovely house located at 105 Christopher in Judsonia.  It is a truly better than new house!  It has 1 1/2 lots with wide side yards large enough to drive to the backyard and store an RV.  Inside it has a split bedroom floor p...

  While looking at old photos of our Searcy AR White County town, I was loaned this wonderful photo as well as the ones yesterday of our old Safeway store that was in the middle of downtown.  A friend has given me permission to post it. It shows part of the court house sqare and the memorial that...

      Today we have wonderful photos loaned to me by the daughter of the first manager of Safeway in Searcy AR.  It was on one of the main streets of Searcy, right in the middle of downtown.  It's hard for us to imagine now that people went DOWNTOWN to shop for groceries.  Horrors!  Where'd they ...

  I have never smoked.  Truth is when I knew how much a smoking habit would cost, I decided way back in my youth that I didn't need to get hooked. That's when cigarettes were 35 cents a pack and I had no income. Everyone else smoked and I married my husband, who was a bad heavy smoker.  I was so...

Receiving the call to "come and tell me what my house might bring because I'm moving and may want you to sell it" is always a good thing to hear!    WHEN DO YOU WANT ME TO COME, TODAY OR TOMORROW?   That call came this week.  The house was bought new about 3 years ago.  There were several childre...

        Look what I've found this time.  This is a postcard of Morning Sun, Searcy AR.  It is a newspaper copy and not a great picture but who would have thought there'd be one at all? Morning Sun reminds me of one of our real estate friends who said as a young man he worked at the filling statio...

      Thanks to a friend of mine for giving me permission to put these football beauties on my blog.  These ladies were football royalty at Searcy High School in 1953.  All were lovely.  The thing that intriques me in these old pictures is how styles change but the young people don't really chang...

The Arkansas Democrat Gazette, our state newspaper, had an extensive and complete article about a failed Hardy Arkansas Sharp County real estate development.  A developer has defaulted in $2.6 million in loans and moved to Mexico.  He sold many parcels of land to people seeking retirement and vac...

        This delightful photo shows a real filling station!  The station is right beside the street and looks as if it has only one gas tank.  The gentleman filling up the tank has probably been told to "fill 'er up" and at the slightly over 25 cents-per-gallon charge, it will not cost much.  Tha...
