Main in Searcy AR.  Note the famous place in the background on the left?  That looks like the Rendezvous Restaurant to me!  And here is the front of the b...

Stop and StareThat's what I did when I saw these in the window of a building at the corner of Beebe Capps and Sawmill Road in Searcy AR.  The glare sorta hurts seeing the detail in these pieces of paper that covers the window but check it out for yourself.Perhaps it is intended to be art.....but ...

 2022 minus 1982 equals 40.  Can't believe these folks are 40!  Oops!  You mean this was 40 years ago!!  So they are a little more than 40 years old!!!  My math was never great!  I remember them well because I was teaching at the Searcy High School and beginning my real estate career at the same ...
