Formal gardens still exist in parts of the world, I'm sure.  But in Searcy Arkansas I see only one example of what I think of as formal.  This house is on the Historic Register and has a vast history.  One of the stories that I heard was that the lovely wood shades which show on the windows here ...

My blog on West Point Arkansas aroused a little interest in old depots in the tiniest towns.  I found a couple more photos of trains and depots. Here's the Augusta depot, or so it was labeled.  It looks  as if it is saying New Augusta.  Now was that  a name for Augusta?  Augusta is actually in Wo...

Today was tour day, or caravan day, or get-in-your-car-and-fill-it-with-your-friends-and-go-see-houses day. I feel that touring is a must when you are a beginning agent.  Not only do you get to know the inventory but you get to learn the streets.  After 30 years I still feel guilty if I don't tou...

Anita grew up in Searcy, Arkansas and I didn't.  I've just been here for the past 40 years while she's been gone.  She contributes to this blog with photos and comments.  She shared this picture and others of old Searcy with me. I knew I'd seen that house somewhere so I took off to find it, sat i...

This man lost his mother when he was very young and started supporting himself at the age of 15 or 16.  His education was limited but he was gifted with street-smarts. He fell in love and talked this girl into marrying him. He had to break up a courtship that she already had going on but he was a...

This picture of 916 E Race shows it as it was when Race Street was a quiet little street with residential properties still on it.  The builder/draftsman who drew it up had saved pictures and floorplans of some of his creations.  His wife was throwing them away and I, being a saver, kept them.  I ...

Georgetown Arkansas in White County is the oldest continuously settled area in Arkansas, according to Wikipedia.  It was settled in 1789 and overlooks the White River.  As of the census in 2000 there were 126 folks who lived there.  There were 55 households and 33 families. Now, more down to eart...

I used to drive my kids to a place called Slippery Rock Ford and they'd wade in the water on the slippery rocks.  This little bridge was a favorite.  It gets underwater at times but evidently it holds up pretty darned good.  In fact, the water looks a bit high for wading at the time of this pictu...

A few months ago I asked what we should look for if we select an heir apparent.  My blog was sorta high-jacked by two friends named Nutsy and Raven but I had some feedback. My requirements were..... Honesty......this certainly would be a must. Energy......if I get tired, they shouldn't! Intellige...

It gets to be shocking.  Drive by and notice the building is either gone or half way down.  That's the way it was with me on Main Street.  The old International Shoe Factory building is a goner.  I did another double-take because it was already half gone.  I snapped pictures.   The International ...
