Last year I wrote a blog about Rainey, the broker's son who hangs around our office in the summer because it is boring at home. Here he is again.  He needs to borrow 30 cents again and reminds me that his credit is good.  He paid me back last year.>>>>>>>>>>>>>   Now here he is beaming at me afte...
Regular readers will know that my husband is a golf lover.  He played in another tournament this weekend and the highlight of the fun weekend was the dance held on Saturday night. It was the 12th Annual Todd Alan Simpson Memorial Golf Tournament with proceeds going to endow scholarships annually ...
I taught school for 12 years, way back there before cell phones.  There were plenty of distractions even then.  In the "Dear Abby" column in the newspaper this morning a young girl was complaining about her fellow student's phones.  They were supposed to be turned off in classes. How'd the kids s...
Right in the midst of downtown Searcy we have this little park that has been decorated.  It is between two buildings in what was a little parking area.  The city has come in and painted murals on the back wall.  I have always loved murals.  It fascinates me that they can be so accurate from a dis...
  20 years ago Professional Escrow opened their doors in Searcy Arkansas.  The owner was a super-sharp and well-trained lady named Hazel English.  She had worked at one of the savings and loan operations that had suddenly become defunct. She knew all about closes and assumptions of loans.  She an...
Wouldn't it be interesting to know how many photographs were taken beside the family car?  It's the same now.  We have a long-running love affair with our cars.  It's no wonder.  Cars were more controllable than horses!  This picture was found in our Duncan family archives.  I hope someone in Se...
  Technology has moved so rapidly.  It's hard to keep up and sometimes we just find it too expensive to keep up or we just don't want to part with old helpers that still work fine. My records show that I bought this Canon copier in 1996.  It is the kind that you do one page at a time.  That takes...
This old post card shows the Roseann Motel and Restaurant on Hwy 67 East. It boasted 20 bedrooms, electrically heated - air conditioned - tile baths - carpeted floors - king-size Beautyrest mattresses - phone in each room  - morning coffee served guests free.  Phone 1575.  It also had a swimming ...
A month ago I wrote about my husband's four-tomato-plant garden.  Since he is a retired seeming-full-time golfer, that's all he had time to do.  I thought he was crazy when he put hair on the tomato plants.  And for you not to think I'm crazy, you have to go back and read that blog.  It's a conti...
I posted this blog a short month or so ago and it closed yesterday.  A new person coming to town bought it for cash.  He has to like old houses with charm!  I also wrote a blog about the perfect offer that I couldn't believe was true.  Good listings and good sales like this one make up for the fr...
