There is a really nice old courthouse in the town of Searcy, located about 45 miles northeast of Little Rock. It's also another place that gets spruced up around Christmas, so I decided to drive up there the other day to take a few pictures. My plan was to get there right before dark, so I could take a few pictures at dusk. I forgot how long of a drive it was to Searcy, so by the time I got there all the nice color was gone.
But the White County Courthouse there is a fine old building, and I was happy to not encounter any crazy people out there.
It would have been nice if all the lights were working, though.
On my way out of town, I noticed some strange lights off in the distance. I went to investigate, and it turns out the lights were decorations on the campus mall at Harding University. I'd never been on the Harding campus before, from what I saw it was a nice little college campus. They had strung up these lights that hung down from the trees - it was a nice effect.
But Merry Christmas everyone (or Happy Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, or whatever you want).
