This picture hangs in my office.  I never knew the people.  I do know their name because it was written on the back of the picture.  Rev. W. A. Cross, Center Texas, March 12, 1955. But you'll agree that it is a step back in time.  The unpainted frame house with a dog run, tin roof and chimney on...
Thanksgiving is a perfect time to prowl around the house and look at old pictures and other memorabilia and find lots of memories to give thanks for.  I have done that for the last day or two and I found another treasure. This picture was saved by my mother-in-law Wyndelene Holmes Duncan, who sav...
We've had quite a conversation about the Dictionary House on East Park Avenue and how the house housed the Words, who invited folks to come up and explore words in the dictionary.  Across the street was the first V. W. Duncan used car lot.  He'd opened up, built a little office and was very proud...
Ok, more ads! These are from the old Woman's Missionary Society Cook Book that I discovered.  It was in terrible condition and is in worse now because I tore out the ads for scanning.  The cook book is for Searcy Arkansas and dates back to the 20's we think. Head in at Headlee's!  I came here whi...
Here are two more ads from the old Woman's Missionary Society Cook Book that must date back to around the 20's. I actually remember Patterson Cleaners.  They operated up until not too many years ago.  (How's that for an indefinite date?) I like the way they said they return everything but the dir...
I wrote a blog that was actually supposed to feature the V. W. Duncan car lot in Searcy AR when it was first beginning and there was ole Po Dunk, as he called himself and as others called him, strolling across the car lot with a cigar in his mouth and a cocked hat on his head looking just like a ...
I don't believe we have talked about Morris School for boys.  It was a Catholic school for boys who were boarded there.  It was located on Morris School Road and had nice buildings and lots of land.  It was probably about 6 miles from town. The thing that I remember the most about it was the pres...
Below is the blog that I put up just a few days ago. No one seemed to know the meaning of the black cat.  But a call from Benson Robbins, Searcy scion, gave me the information we lacked.  His grandfather was a partner with Mr. Word and they owned the store. It was the grandfather on his mother's ...
Here is another picture loaned to Searcy's history by Benson and Betty Robbins.  It was in a frame and I scanned through the glass so that explains the strange lighting in places.  Look at all those papers and magazines!  Look.  Collier's. Life and others.  Was it the beginning of recycling?  Be...
 I love the way these guys are posed with so much confidence.  The tilt of the hat back then must have been a portrayal of personality.  Each man wore his hat differently. These were on the Searcy AR School Board, I believe.  See if you can name them before I give you the names.  This picture was...
