Do any of you girls remember (guys also perhaps) when fashion dictated?  The dictators told you what to wear and when. No white shoes (or white jeans if we'd had any) after Labor Day which was several days ago. The ladies skirt lengths either went up or down as decided by fashion moguls. (During ...
Monthy I receive the neatest newsletter that is put out by the White County Historical Society.  Yearly near Christmas time, they put out a "book" that is a real keeper.  The dues to belong to this group are $16 per year.  I sent off my dues for 2009 today and was glad to do so.  The front of th...
    I wrote a blog about the deadly tornado that destroyed Judsonia Arkansas in 1952.  I received email from a lady who survived that tornado.  At the time of the blog she was battling water in her basement from a flood where she now lives.  But she promised to write down her memories of the torn...
Searcy Arkansas, White County, has one of the oldest court houses in the state.  It is a beehive of activity everyday despite how old it is.  I'm posting three photos of the building. The one above is the earliest known photo shortly after its construction in 1870. It later had wings added on the...
These small license plates hang on the wall in my kitchen along with lots of other collectibles (junk) and I have one friend in particular who covets them.  So I called him and asked what the deal was with these little license plates. They measure 10"x3" so they are much smaller than regular lic...
The latest copper theft was a surprise in Searcy Arkansas.  The house had been remodeled by investors and they had found a buyer.  The house was in city limits and not isolated.  One of the investors had been in the house a few days before the close and flipped on the lights and they didn't come ...
  Here's another one of friend Paula's pictures.  She won a camera and went around town snapping pictures for a Girl Scout project.  It was sometime in the 40's. This was the Truman Baker corner at the corner of Race and Main.  The Truman Baker Chevrolet dealership took up this corner for many ye...
My friend Paula took photos with a camera she'd won sometime in the 40's.  The assignment was for Girl Scouts and she was to take photos of buildings in Searcy AR.  She dutifully went around snapping photos and we've been featuring them on this blog. Here's another one.  It is a school building....
I made the mistake of going into the grocery store to get a few items and it was near dinner time and I was hungry.  I threw in two porterhouse steaks hoping my spouse would cook them on the grill and went on around to the deli.  There they had some fresh fried catfish.  Well, a couple of pieces ...
Yesterday's blog about two mystery churches has been solved. One is still there.  I just didn't recognize it from the picture.  My friends, Don and Paula, quickly found me a current picture of it.  They'll probably send me a book on "Dummie's Blogging" if I don't get better.  But they do underst...
