I’m just wrapping up another glorious trip to Searcy, Arkansas. I continue to be as impressed as ever with their barbecue and their ability to let time pass them by.
Here are some new photos from the past week for your enjoyment.
Attention everyone, the 2 Friends Bait Shop now has gas! This is fantastic news. Thank you.
I present you with the Kroger that time forgot. The only way you can tell this picture was taken recently is the by looking at the cars up front. Inside and out, it’s pretty dated.
Lastly, here’s a Fina gas station—this is where the 2 Friends sell their gas. I hadn’t seem pumps like these in ages. They remind me of R.O.B., the NES Robot.
I may joke about Searcy, but the truth of the matter is that the people here are good, honest, and hard-working. The landscape is green and lush. It’s easy to like the place and its inhabitants.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not looking to relocate to Searcy anytime soon, but there is a certain charm that is undeniable. Searcy has in quickly become one of my favorite small towns.
What’s your favorite small town? Is it your home town? Why do you love it? Sound off in the comments below.
