D for Duncan's?  Cheerleaders for PeeWee Football 1997.And who were they cheering for?Here they are.  1997 PeeWee Football players and their coaches.  See if you can find yourself if you were growing up at that time.  I believe the sponsor was Duncan's Chrysler Plymouth Jeep.

Searcy AR football team 1939 - 1942This great old picture was loaned to me by Ginger Pickens Brookshire and husband Frank.  Frank was a member of another football team in approximately 1970 sponsored by Duncan's Chrysler Plymouth car dealership and still loves football. https://activerain.com/dro...

And this treasure could be yours!While listing a house at 2405 Brittany Lane in Searcy AR I noticed this georgous lamp post in the front yard.  I said, "Surely that is not one of the historic street lamp posts from Searcy!"  The owner replied that it is.  He bought it when Searcy had removed them...

Fence  vs. Tree?Chain link fences are wonderful because they don't have to be painted, don't rot, don't have termites and seem to last forever.  But this one seems to have found a formidable foe.  I found this site at a listing today and thought it very interesting because of the time it has had ...

Think back, Searcy folks.....Several years ago, and I can't remember how many, the streets of downtown Searcy AR had lots of these great big planters filled with flowers.  I had the good fortune a few days ago to become the owner of four of them that were once used by a prominent downtown merchan...

Here's a challenge, Searcy Sleuths!While we are spending most of our time at home looking for things to do, we perhaps look back through old memory books or files saved.  I was doing just that when this lovely photograph fell out of the book.  I thought I knew exactly where it was.  Folks from Se...

My daugher, Valerie Canepa, and I, a team, were fortunate to be listing country properties on the same day.  We went in different directions and put the listings on MLS on the same day.  My listing is great with 5 acres at 260 Oak Forrest Road in Searcy AR.  (Check it out on the internet.  MLS #2...

While looking through old saved clippings, I came across this one.  And it is a good example of irresponsible clipping and record keeping by me.  I failed to put the date of the clipping.  It does say that the house was 78 years old and this was to be very close to the end of the lovely P. A. Rob...

Ouch!  Darlin', that hurt!  Are you mad at me?  I guess there is a touch of humor in the accident that happened a day or so ago in Searcy AR.  Searcy, as you may know, was the winner in the Small Business Revolution in 2019.  Searcy has been doing murals downtown and trying to make a highly desir...

I started reviewing some of my old blogs today.  I started blogging in 2007 and there are over 1700 blogs floating up in the cloud.  Some of those blogs are definitely worth seeing again.  I was impressed with this short blog that gives you the link to the rap tune, S E A R C Y, done my Harding s...

Coke revisited in Searcy ARI ate a beautiful cookie and felt guilty as I did because it was SO pretty.  They were being given to guests who visited the Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Open House in downtown Searcy AR on 2/11/2020.  In years past the building (owned now by Sowell's Furniture) was an offici...

Remember?This picture may bring back old memories of dirt roads, country areas, toy wagons, great relatives who helped with the kids and, in short, the good ole days.The lady looks too old to have children that young but she is probably baby sitting for a family member.  It really did bring back ...

Sheet Music I attended school in a tiny town in Georgia and I now think that when we gathered in the auditorium and a teacher led us in singing songs that the school was perhaps fulfilling a required music class.  When I was in college and majored in Art,  I was not required to take a music class...

 Downtown Searcy 1980It  interesting to see this old ad that was in the Searcy Daily Citizen on 4/25/1980.  Davis Furniture now has a new owner and name, Young's Tire is no longer at that location.  The Commercial Printing Company is not there, vehicles have certainly changed and this picture mak...

1978 yearbook picture...Harding College Searcy ARThis interesting picture is unusual in that there is snow on the ground and the kids had to be well-wrapped to get in that convertible for the Harding yearbook picture.  I found it in an old folder titled 1978 Harding yearbook ad pictures.    The h...

Really OLD!Driving in downtown Searcy AR today is totally different.  This view of Arch Street South of the courthouse looks very wide.  Go there now and with huge pickup trucks parked on each side it does not look very wide.  This view seems to show dirt streets, antique vehicles, and a few peop...
