Arkansas 2019 Part 3

We finally made it to Arkansas! It is 7/31/19 and we are visiting Buffalo River. The big cliffs are obvious. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49422500357_1ae9983962_c.jpg They seem to go on forever. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49422500402_f2b3932054_c.jpg Old, but intimidating.

Re: KC Advertising and Signs

I wish everyone could have seen that gigantic Pontiac sign at night. It had a gazillion lights that would perform an impressive show in waves and flickers. People referred to its location as Signboard Hill. Thank you for posting a wonderful memory.

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Again. Nothing? How many people switched off CBS last night after the horrific first quarter between the Chiefs and Texans? I joked about doing so. Then the second quarter exploded. How could this have happened? Bam! Bam! Bam! Never count out the Chiefs. 51-31. Love it. Can't wait for next Sunday!

Re: Grand Avenue Temple

We'd stop by the restaurant, Roy and Ray's, afterwards for hamburgers, although I wanted to maintain my 90-...

Re: New major version of phpBB, and PHP

It seems perfectly fast for me, but then I'm old and creaky. You will need to wait for the younger guys who can jump through hoops. (Is that even a thing anymore?)

Re: Postcards From the Edge of Time

Thank you, Mr. Gentleman. I do so remember how beautiful downtown was during the holiday season. I'm in my mid-70s now, but when I was a little girl, visiting all the big stores during that time was magical. Emery, Bird and Thayer, Kline's, Macy's, Peck's, Jone's, Harzfeld’s. Yes, big, bright, light...
