A few days ago I wrote a blog about the Mayfair Hotel in Searcy Arkansas and how it was very near a park that had healing waters. This old postcard shows that park at about that era, I'd think.  The spring was covered with this circular pavilion or gazebo and it was within easy walking distance ...
Ever heard the old saying that the way to a girl's heart is through her stomach?   I know, I know, it is supposed to say the way to a MAN'S heart is through his stomach. I walked in the house today at 4:30 after closing a house, my first this year, and smelled something divine.  The table was set...

Lots of Searcy readers have been commenting on old Searcy Arkansas and the things they used to do, the places they visited, and the way the streets were laid out.  One of the readers, Harold Gene Sullivan, sent me this photo with some landmarks already labeled!  Look at all the old trees and the...
I've been married to a car dealer for more years that I can count.  He was one we could depend on.  If something was wrong with the car I'd call up and ask him what was wrong and he'd diagnose it over the phone.  We've had kids call from California asking for the free vehicle diagnosis.  They've ...
I was just asittin' there playing in the rain when an email popped up. It said that Johnny S______ wanted to be my friend on Facebook. Oh, yes!!   That's Johnny from way back when I taught school and he stayed at my house a lot and was best friends with my son and I hadn't heard from him in about...
