Getting ready for 'Jacquestoberfest 2013'

November 1, 2013

I spent all day last Friday cleaning out the front of my shop for “Jacquestoberfest 2013.” We had a big Halloween party for Jacques and his friends. I made chili cheese dogs and Frito chili pies for all the kids to eat.
Melissa Urichson made a whole bunch of Halloweeen cupcakes as well as cookies and cream popcorn. I know — what? Cookies and cream popcorn? However, I have to say it was awesome.
The party kids played ping pong, air hockey and pool.

Black and orange, yea!

October 31, 2013

There are several teams I could never cheer for — Russia, Oklahoma State, the Dallas Cowboys, Spiro and Sallisaw. However, wait for a minute. For the next two weeks, I am going on a crash course on the lyrics for the Black Diamonds' fight song.
For these next two weeks, I am going to be a Black Diamond fan. The only way for the Pirates to finish with the top seed in District 4A-4 is a three-way tie for the top spot in the district with Poteau, Tulsa Cascia Hall and Sallisaw.
