One of my new-found blog friends who grew up in Searcy Arkansas read a comment from me that said I was raised in Coolidge Georgia so therefore I didn't know everything and everybody who used to live in Searcy. I found something in the mail a few days later.  Jim Bohannon, who grew up in Searcy, h...

You think we have cookie-cutter houses today and they are all basically the same?  Possibly so. But it has always been that way.  Style is style, whether you're talking about clothing or cars or houses.  It was the style once to build houses like this one. How many of these have you seen around t...

This building was so old and the real estate company that had been there had closed.  We no longer have a Century 21 in Searcy Arkansas.  I really thought the building would be torn down.  The picture below looks good (made by the google man) but after the real estate company closed it went down ...

  REO (foreclosure properties) homes always offer surprises.  This particular one had the front door guarded by a bunch of flying screeching birds that didn't appreciate my trespassing near their home.  I had to see what they were so proud of.  Here's what I saw.    I took this closeup because I ...

I did my double-take a few months ago and wrote about it on this blog.  Driving down a Searcy Street and seeing the remains of a home, perhaps historic or perhaps not, but part of old Searcy Arkansas anyhow, is always a head spinner. Today it happened again.  On Race Street one of the cutest litt...

I was just reading the Sunday paper and saw this Charlie Sheen lookin' feller in this ad in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette newspaper. I looked at it. I looked again. I studied it.  I passed it over to Hubby and said, "Can you tell me what this ad is saying?" He handed it back and said, "#$@^&# if ...

Old postcards are so educational.  My collection seems to show the evolution of Arch Street on the court square.  Look at this one that dates to way way back.  Look at the third building from the left, just after Baugh's Drug Store.  It is red brick, isn't it.... and has architecture a lot like t...

Strawberries are ripe right now around Searcy Arkansas.  Driving from Searcy Arkansas to Bald Knob Arkansas (which used to be called the strawberry capital of the world) along the old highway will possibly find lots of people with freshly-picked strawberries for sale. They're pretty expensive thi...

My blog buddy, Anita, once had me distracted by looking for "ghost signs" which were old signs painted on brick buildings.  We blogged a few of those. While downtown in Searcy Arkansas I looked up from my parking space and saw "ghost architecture." Yes, that's a good name for it.  These brick bui...

Friends forwarded this magnificent picture of mothers and babies.  They don't know, unless the Sleuths can find answers, who most of the folks are. Identified on the back row from left are Florence and Lee Biggs, Freda and Burney Lightle, Rosamond and Joe Yingling, unidentified, and then Lucy and...
