We have this condo under contract now!  This Saturday will be a big day for the sellers because they'll be getting rid of a lot of family treasures.  No family member has room to hold everything so most of the household items, antiques, furniture, etc., will be sold.  If you want to see some of t...

    Another picture of the old days in Searcy, White County Arkansas.  I really love this one.  The ladies all have on hats and are dresssed just as alike as the girls dress today.  I can assure you everyone had on some sort of hose.  And they had on sensible shoes, no needle pointed spikes that ...

My friends have given me permission to use this old photo of a young boy and his tractor.  It has to be a very unique one and if any of you guys can identify it let us know.  I just asked my husband what he thought it was and he said he thinks it was an old garden type tractor, small so you could...

I'm fortunate to have a friend who has supplied me with lots of photos of Searcy Arkansas's history.  This, I believe, is her dad standing beside his Esso truck.  Note the lettering on the side of the truck.  Searcy Arkansas is a progressive city of approximately 20,000 people and serves as the ...

Look at these eager children!  This is a photo made in front of Searcy High School, the old one that burned down.  Once again, correct me in comments if I am wrong.  This photo was provided by my friend Anita.  Searcy AR is a progressive city of approximately 20,000 residents.  I don't know any ...

It's Searcy AR history time again.  This old post card shows a group of slender men at the Pavilion in Spring Park.  (Wonder what a current group of our guys would look like?) The Pavilion, to the best of my knowledge, had a spring with sulphur water which was believed to be great for one's heal...

  Here's another treasure from the old picture stack of Searcy Arkansas White County photos.  It's an old filling station with two young boy scouts and two adults.  The boys are holding a tire and an inner tube that may require repairs.  Do you remember tires with inner tubes that had to be taken...

Here is still another picture of old town Searcy Arkansas.  This picture shows a group of happy kids who have won prizes for some contest.  Perhaps selling seeds?  I'm sure that my friend Paula Windsor Thompson, who is the tall girl in the picture, will tell me more in a comment.  She appears to ...

I wrote this blog just a few days ago and now I have the listing on this lovely house located at 105 Christopher in Judsonia.  It is a truly better than new house!  It has 1 1/2 lots with wide side yards large enough to drive to the backyard and store an RV.  Inside it has a split bedroom floor p...

  While looking at old photos of our Searcy AR White County town, I was loaned this wonderful photo as well as the ones yesterday of our old Safeway store that was in the middle of downtown.  A friend has given me permission to post it. It shows part of the court house sqare and the memorial that...

      Today we have wonderful photos loaned to me by the daughter of the first manager of Safeway in Searcy AR.  It was on one of the main streets of Searcy, right in the middle of downtown.  It's hard for us to imagine now that people went DOWNTOWN to shop for groceries.  Horrors!  Where'd they ...

        Look what I've found this time.  This is a postcard of Morning Sun, Searcy AR.  It is a newspaper copy and not a great picture but who would have thought there'd be one at all? Morning Sun reminds me of one of our real estate friends who said as a young man he worked at the filling statio...

      Thanks to a friend of mine for giving me permission to put these football beauties on my blog.  These ladies were football royalty at Searcy High School in 1953.  All were lovely.  The thing that intriques me in these old pictures is how styles change but the young people don't really chang...

Fire! Fire! I had cash buyers in my car.  They liked houses in nice quiet established neighborhoods.  I called an agent to show her house.  She had her own house listed and she knew exactly how to make it show well.  We'd had lots of training and knew what we were doing. She rushed home to turn o...

 This rap tune has been on youtube for several months now and each time I view it I appreciate the work that had to go into it to make it.  These four Harding University students had to walk down the streets of Searcy, climb over railroad cars, write the lyrics, record the lyrics, probably lip-si...
