Artist's Description

This was once a fine Moderne post war Motel, that sat on the edge of town, in Pine Bluff, Ark USA. Now, the town has swallowed it up, and its abandoned. It has been named many things, on its slide downhill. The last time it was used was as a weekly (or HOURLY! LOL) rental for low income and transients. I remember it from the 1960s, and how beautiful it was! It even had a POOL!!!! A rare thing back then for this part of the country!!!! My brother got married here, in the Grand Ballroom, and we had his reception here, too. Even though we were all fairly local, he rented the top section for about 20 of us, and we stayed 3 days and 2 nights. I stayed with mom, right behind the awning here, in the center. What great memories! Its not every son who invites his whole family on their honeymoon! (They DID go to the Bahamas, though)…….The country star, Alan Jackson wrote one of his biggest hits here, when he was playing the Convention Center. So, it has a long wonderful history. But soon, sadly, it will be a Parking Lot. So I walked around and got a lot of photos. I can still hear my aunt yelling at my brother for throwing her (AND her new hair do) into the deep end of the pool. And my MOM yelling at him, that she can’t swim. I can still hear my brothers sweet new wife yelling to SAVE HER, Dammit!!!!……He did. And even though he was (semi) Grown, mom still chewed him out…..And he still let her……….Ah, memories! LOL……….Taken with a SanyoVPC-E2100.
