I have just put a house under contract to a lovely couple who is moving to Arkansas from another state.  They are cash buyers. They knew they had to open a bank account and asked about a strong bank and I recommended my favorite. They came back complaining about how difficult it was to open a ban...
    Get Down....Downtown Searcy Arkansas had something for everyone on the weekend of Sept 25 and 26, 2009.  There were displays of antique vehicles. The festival was the second in what we hope to have become an annual event. This antique vehicle caught my eye.  The sign on it says it is a 1924 M...
Drifting to Get Down....Downtown Searcy yesterday was a pleasure. The streets of downtown were roped off and vendors of all kinds lined the streets, especially food vendors.  I almost bought ribs three times to take home and eat later. Smells were fabulous. Music was on each end of the street wi...
Notice the title says the house is "going away."  That is better than saying "being torn down." I've always felt that this big old house located on the very edge of Highway 16 North (1105 N Maple Street) was a mystery house.  It stood starkly and was empty of people, shrubs, fences or anything to...
  I am reblogging this for Don Thompson, one of my localism contributors who knows all about our Searcy and surrounding area.  He tells a little about Steprock. ************************************************************************************* Recently there was a postcard in the local paper s...
Bald Knob, Arkansas, located about 12 miles from Searcy Arkansas, used to be the strawberry capital of the world!  Now it is still a pretty busy little town but the strawberries are mostly pick-your-own.  Ebay had this card showing the Americana Motel located at Highways 64- 167 & 67 in Bald Knob...
My old friend called me today.  She said it just as she always did.  "This is Lill [pause] Williams."                                                For the hard of hearing, the slow to catch on, the busy was definite who was calling.  There was never a quick, hard to understand, "Th...
Look what I found in this latest foreclosure that I'm having to work up. I thought that it was so neat!  The house was built in 1969.  So perhaps this was part of construction in those days.  However, I've been in a lot of 1969 houses and I've never ever seen one of these. I thought it might just...
Ker-plunk!! Ooops!  Something fell out of the bed.  Groggy me tries to comprehend what the item might be.  Couldn't be me 'cause I'm still in bed!  A quick feel indicates hubby is still a lump on the other side. OH!!  YEAH!!  It musta been the soap!  The soap has to go to bed with us.  One bar of...
Monday there was a parade down the main streets of Searcy Arkansas to begin the White County Fair.  Bands, floats, horses, queens, politicians, and a-lot-more strutted along the streets as cheering throngs waved to them from the sidelines. Weather is pretty nasty this week but hopefully it will c...
