I wrote this sad note to one of my blogging buddies. "I'm still having trouble with controlling the google man.  I need to know how to switch from one side of the street to the other etc.  If I could do that I wouldn't have to drive around looking for these houses!!"  Here is his reply that may h...
When folks went out to eat 45 or 50 years ago they went to Bill's Grill on East Race Street in Searcy Arkansas.  I found this old post card showing it as it was when it was so popular.  I remember going there when I arrived in Searcy in the late 60's.  They had a manager out there named Earnestin...
I have driven by these structures so many times but not with a blogger's mind.  Now with a blogger's mind, as you drive along your vehicle comes to a screeching halt and you make a fool of yourself snapping a picture of something that appeals to no one.  Except possibly someone out in blog-land. ...
A TRIBUTE TO A LOVELY MOTHER-IN-LAW. When I first met my future husband he kinda liked me, as he said, because I reminded him of his mother.  What!  That didn't seem to be much of a compliment to me.  After having been in the Duncan family for over 40 years now I can say with assurance that it wa...
I was showing property to a couple who wanted a very specific school district which limited the choices of houses that they'd buy, and we were in this house that was probably about 10 years old.  They had plans to build but really wished they could find one already built. She said, "Well, I'd hav...
Notice the brick and rock work on this house.  There are hundreds of houses in our area of Arkansas with this finish.  You see them on the side of the highway, on older streets in Searcy, on the main streets of Searcy if they haven't been torn down, and in surrounding towns. The construction look...
How things have changed!  Privacy is so respected now that you can't go to the hospital and inquire about a relative and get a straight answer about whether the relative is a patient.  Even if the relative is in there and you know they are in there, unless the relative has given permission to giv...
Here's another one of the old interesting home pictures given me to a lady whose husband had passed away but who had a hand in building the houses, drawing up the plans, etc.  I have not been able to locate this house.  It may be gone.  Perhaps some of my blogger friends will remember it. The hou...
I waved at my neighbor last week. Their car is in the driveway. Their dog still barks.  Their cat visits my yard.  They obviously still live beside me. Tonight, I looked up their number in the phone book and dialed it.  I needed to ask them a neighborhood question. "The number you have dialed has...
This house is no longer in Searcy.  It was removed in order for "things modern" to be built.  I'm not sure exactly where it was but my sources say it was between the West Arch street Church of Christ and downtown. Sources also say they think it may have been called the Yarnell house?  They say wi...
