A death in the family is always sad.  Then folks start trying to clean out the belongings of the deceased.  You never know what you will find and some things are from a past generation.  Such was my experience this past week.

So you think the 50's meant poodle skirts?  I grew up in the 50's and never heard of a poodle shirt.

It is har...
Here's a very good picture of a Searcy AR landmark on Main Street, Searcy AR.  I love the way it has detail with a train track on one side and a real train on the other side.  It is for sale on ebay right now for $8.99.  It is said to be a 1978 view of the building and is a real photo post card....
