Getting ready for 'Jacquestoberfest 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.The highlight of the evening was “The Amazing Great Pumpkin Race.” We had five teams with one team leader. We had to go to 10 houses in our neighborhood and complete a variety of challenges and figure out clues to how to find “The Great Pumpkin.”The winning team was comprised of leader Rebecca McRorey, Ryan Scott, Piper Akins, Maci Hendricks, Grant Ford, Caston Wickware and Curtis Culwell.Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour when you go to bed Saturday night for Daylight's Savings Time.Save the world, recycle.God bless our troops and veterans.Have a great weekend.• • •Any questions or pictures, make contact with Jody Ray Adams on Facebook, on “The Jody Ray Fishing Hotline” at (918) 649-7387 or email to
