The city of Pittsburg puts on a Halloween Night where the businesses pass out candy. This keeps the monsters off the streets and gives the downtown businesses an opportunity to mingle with the locals. Stop by Jack's and we'll give you a piece of candy. Of course, dusting all the glass decor in Jack's might get you a Tootsie Roll Pop. Kids get treats for free, adults have to work.
On November 5, Misty and Patricia are going to Washington, Arkansas for the Civil War Reenactment.
An $8.00 entry fee will give you all day entertainment which includes a tour of homes as well as a battle reenactment.
November 10th, Thursday, is Pittsburg's "Downtown Alive" night. From 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, all the businesses will be open, each offering something a little different. Jack's will be giving complimentary
"Hand Spas" for the ladies. While in Jack's they will get an opportunity to see all the items the Texas Junkin' Ladies are offering.
December 12, the Texas Junkin' Ladies are going to the Candle Light Home Tour in Jefferson, Texas. They say Jefferson is a haunted town and you know the great Texas Motto "Don't Mess With Texas Ghosts"? It's true.
This site will give you information on tickets, etc.
December 10, Mike and Patricia will have a Redneck Costume Party. Ron and Shane will be providing live music. Patricia says to bring a white elephant gift, something obtained from one of our Junkin' trips (we have a lot of that crap). She also said the menu for the party will be our all time favorites, Spam, saltines, sardines, boudin balls, viennas and Moonpies.
I'm gettin' hungry just typing this blog. YUM!
Patricia said to BYOU (bring your own utensils). Those ratty thin paper plates, plastic knife, fork and spoon. The handouts you've been collecting from McDonald's--packets of salt, pepper, and ketchup. Styrofoam Big Gulp cups, straws and bring along those Burger King crowns you've collected over the years.
Anything else comes up I'll be sure and let you know.
