I learned at Riverdale Garden Club on Thursday that Wright's Firehouse Produce had reopened in their old location, 2421 Military Rd, Benton, AR 72015 778-8083. They are closed Saturday afternoons however. At least today he was closed when I called. His hours may be flexible. Who knows. But he is back!
I've looked online, haven't found anything. But can anyone point me to the route for the Benton homecoming parade today?
I've heard it starts at 5:30 and goes from someplace to the new stadium. Anyone know the route? Thanks.
One of these days I will need a new cell phone. I feel lucky to have been able to have an iphone 4 for a couple of years. And I have not gotten it very scratched nor have I cracked the face. But still I am ecstatic to learn that new style of plastic and sapphire screens are coming.
I may have to learn a new phone system if my old apple konks out too soon. My iphone was a hand me down from someone else in my phone group. How many of you are using second hand phones and laptops…Continue

I love to put beads into a chain to adorn throats. These are 17" long and on stretch cord. I can custom make anything you need to match your outfit. If you prefer a longer strand(s) or a clasp in the back, I can do that too. The ones pictured are $20 each. Matching earrings are no problem. email@example.com
