I started reviewing some of my old blogs today.  I started blogging in 2007 and there are over 1700 blogs floating up in the cloud.  Some of those blogs are definitely worth seeing again.  I was impressed with this short blog that gives you the link to the rap tune, S E A R C Y, done my Harding s...

Coke revisited in Searcy ARI ate a beautiful cookie and felt guilty as I did because it was SO pretty.  They were being given to guests who visited the Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Open House in downtown Searcy AR on 2/11/2020.  In years past the building (owned now by Sowell's Furniture) was an offici...

Remember?This picture may bring back old memories of dirt roads, country areas, toy wagons, great relatives who helped with the kids and, in short, the good ole days.The lady looks too old to have children that young but she is probably baby sitting for a family member.  It really did bring back ...

Sheet Music I attended school in a tiny town in Georgia and I now think that when we gathered in the auditorium and a teacher led us in singing songs that the school was perhaps fulfilling a required music class.  When I was in college and majored in Art,  I was not required to take a music class...

 Downtown Searcy 1980It  interesting to see this old ad that was in the Searcy Daily Citizen on 4/25/1980.  Davis Furniture now has a new owner and name, Young's Tire is no longer at that location.  The Commercial Printing Company is not there, vehicles have certainly changed and this picture mak...

1978 yearbook picture...Harding College Searcy ARThis interesting picture is unusual in that there is snow on the ground and the kids had to be well-wrapped to get in that convertible for the Harding yearbook picture.  I found it in an old folder titled 1978 Harding yearbook ad pictures.    The h...

Really OLD!Driving in downtown Searcy AR today is totally different.  This view of Arch Street South of the courthouse looks very wide.  Go there now and with huge pickup trucks parked on each side it does not look very wide.  This view seems to show dirt streets, antique vehicles, and a few peop...

A page from the past!  1959 Seniors.This is a fun old picture that has been tucked away for a long time.  This group of Searcy Seniors was to present a play on May 1 1959 at the Searcy High School auditorium.  I know several of them now but did not know them then because I did not grow up in Sear...

Mystery tissue paper order for dolls?This 4 page tissue paper copy of an order (I assume) for a lot of dolls has been in my attic for many years.  It was found in a throw-away cardboard suitcase found by me probably in the late 60's or early 70's as I made trips to the library and the park with m...

Homecoming Royalty in Searcy ArkansasHow thrilled folks were, way back then, to have their pictures in the newspaper.  This old clipping has spent many years in an attic or two (date is somewhere around 1964) so it is probably not as clear as we'd like it to be.  But it is good that the names are...

WOW!How did they get the picture to look like this?  This was a long time ago, approximately in the 70's, when no one had tricky cell phones that do amazing things.  The young man was in the tree and another young man took the picture.  I stumbled upon it the other day and was once again stunned ...

What a cute card.  It certainly makes you take notice!This old card is from 1954 and has a calendar on the back.  The front, as you can see, reads "There is a difference IN SOFT DRINKS TRY C & C SUPER in the Sanitary Cap Top Can."The back of the card says, "IT'S 'SUPER' all year 'round."  Then th...

Loaded downThis car has to bring memories to lots of people.  What did we call those things that covered back tires?   Hubby, the retired car dealer, says "fender skirts."  But he says he sees no seams so perhaps this car was just made that way.  And were those things  at the back called tail fin...

Santa is Smokin'!In more than one way.  He is wide-eyed and ready to jump in the sleigh.....PLUS.....he is smoking a pipe!  I collect Santas in a small way and got this one from an estate sale a few days ago.  I didn't think much about what he was doing but once I put him in the herd, he stood ou...

Elizabeth Gertrude DurhamThe pretty girl on the left was named Elizaeth Gertrude Durham and I think the girl on the right was her sister.  The picture dates back, way back, and the girls are dressed in very pretty and fancy outfits.  The hair styles appear the same with a huge bow at the back.Eli...

Rare FindThese are so old that they are difficult to read but I finally got a good picture of the two so you can also see and read them.  They are full of interesting information.  First, the newer one is called a DOG TAX .  It was good for one year, I assume, and would have to be renewed......mo...

Beloved bicycles.I love old pictures as readers know.  I also can't understand why some families don't cherish their old snapshots of family.  The top picture above is an unknown person......cast aside by family who didn't want the old photos.  He seems to be so proud of his bicycle and it, as my...

So what does this mean?I found this picture at an estate sale.  There were other pictures of the same lady with normal snapshots taken outside the house.  So you could see that a picture had been cropped so that it was placed in this coffee cup.  But WHY was she in the coffee cup.  Was Camel Ciga...

This pretty little house that once had a front porch is on its way down.  While driving by I did my usual OMG reaction to seeing this one almost gone.  And then I started remembering that its neighboring house was already gone!  So, Searcy Sleuths, what was the neighboring house?  Ok.....here's t...

We have published the old Plaza Theatre picture before but this time it has the names of the band members.  I have always loved the looks of the building and the perfect way all the band members are sitting and standing.  The sign to the right on another street says, "Varner's Cleaners & Tailors....
