Searcy boys,fighting,at war,little boys playing

Here's an old Searcy AR picture of little boys having fun.

It is below 20 degrees in Searcy AR today so seeing this old picture is warming.  This picture shows little kids having a fight or wrestling match, barefoot and shirtless as boys used to play.

  Girls, too, except perhaps not shirtless.  One of my memories (notice I did not say favorite) goes back to my being in one of the lower grades of school in Georgia.  Of course it was extremely hot and we'd just come in from recess.  I had a good friend named Mae and she and I decided it was not fair for boys to go shirtless so we decided to shed our shirts and also be cool.  We were sitting in class and I went first......Mae did not follow!  All eyes were on ME as Mae sat there and did nothing.  Teacher, of course, reprimanded me in such a way that I have never forgotten it.  As for Mae?  We remained friends and I don't remember beating her up!

This picture has the name of the boys on the back but wouldn't it be more fun to see if any of the Searcy Sleuths can name them?

In Oklahoma growing up this would not have been unusual. Include Cowboys and Indians.

I love old pictures like that, when times were simpler.  Do you notice that neither has a tech device in their hands?

Don, nope.  But I love the picture that you added. That is you and who?  You look mighty pleased to be held up by a pretty little girl.

Don, nope meant no.  But since no one has said who the boys were I guess I'll tell.  On the back the names given were Jim Baugh Jones and Phil Shoffner.  You Sleuths may be getting a little bit slow.  I do admit that it would have been hard for anyone to identify them.  Jim Baugh says he did not recognize himself!
