What neat photos we have found of old Searcy Arkansas. Evidently the first one is of a Wave in uniform visiting in front of First Security Bank in order to perhaps solicit women to sign up for the Waves. Look at the Ford Motor Company sign behind her.  Who can remember when there was a car dealer...
Seniors in Searcy High School have gone out and sold advertisements in the High School Yearbook for as long as I can remember.  The books were heavy, full of pictures with enough memories to last a lifetime.  Here's a picture from the 1976 yearbook. The Seniors might try to get themselves and the...
She just sat there holding that Kindle. A Kindle, as you probably know, is this device that you can buy and read books on.  You can also download books within seconds. sells them and reports that they are the # 1 best selling item for gifting. I gifted my daughter one for her birthday...
My daughter came home for Christmas and lugged into the house a large plastic storage bin filled with three-ring binders.  She was vague when I asked what it was, but later, after we opened presents she dragged it into the kitchen and said, "I have one more gift for you."  "I thought it would be ...
I wrote this blog last year about my little godson Nutsy Wallenda, who is a squirrely home inspector.  He has been on Activerain for a long time now.  I think it is worth repeating. *********************************************************************************** Dear Gods of Activerain, I am g...

Now we have a Van Buren lady win on Survivor: Samoa, a CBS television reality show that is in its 20th season. (Does that mean 20 years?  Surely not!) The ne...
Someone gave my husband a jar of pickles.                                  On the front they say, "Caution!.  May be addictive!" That was an understatement.  He gobbled up those Bennie's Fire and Ice Pickles within days and it was a quart jar. He's looking around for more.  The original-gifting-g...
I stumbled across another memory.  I for some reason saved the newspaper clipping about this house at 309 W. Center Street that was marked for demolition in order to build apartments. It was 78 years old and was a perfect example of Queen Anne Victorian.  It sat grandly on a corner with huge tree...
Here's another of the pictures that I salvaged from sure death as they were being thrown away by a widow whose husband had taken pictures of houses he had a part in building in Searcy Arkansas. I can't find this one.  It is, of course, fairly simple and there may be lots of them spread around.  I...
This student, Brent Pickens, was in my art class in the 80's.  He was talented, sincere, gentle and already a magician in high school.  I was pleased to see this article in the paper a few days ago with his picture, his toy characters surrounding him, with an announcement that he was doing a show...
