Hey, Let’s Talk! The Monster Mash

Hey, Let’s Talk! The Monster Mash

You remember that Sixties novelty song by Bobby “Boris” Pickett? Sung in a Boris Karloff type voice it’s been a popular Halloween song ever since AND I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since the Halloween party that Susan’s daughter Sommer put on last week.

Pat’s Chat

This new time is hard to get used to. I woke up at 4:30 this morning. But when our bodies adjust to it, we’ll be just fine.

A bunch of mine went to the State Fair Friday. Ethan, Aly, Decker, Rodney, Carol and Pat Arbuckle. Alyssa and Ellie Clark, Trent and Bre Jones, and Suzanne Justice. The kids were all so good and the weather was perfect. When Trent and I went there, we also went to a basketball game at Pleasant Hill. He got to spend the night with us, first time in a while. But that was one tired little boy by the time we got home, I don’t think he moved all night long.

The title could be about the first frost of the season and Autumn leaves starting to turn OR this title could be the opening stanza of the second verse from one of my favorite songs by that old Psychedelic Rock band Jefferson Airplane called “If You Feel”?

Pat’s Chat

We had the Fall Carnival Friday night at Stanley. It was very well attended and I think all the kids had a good time. Jason brought Jax over, but all he wanted to do was eat. Aly and Ethan brought Decker, but after chasing him for about 15 minutes, they were ready to go. Cammie brought Trent down. Bre, Alyssa, and Ellie also attended. That is sponsored by the PTO.

Did You Know?

This is a follow-up article concerning the Mansfield Female College Museum and Lyceum. The Secretary of State said the Lyceum needed a new roof, a new ceiling, new windows plus several other major items and the State would not be able to complete these. The estimated state cost would be three million dollars. The Friends of the Mansfield Female College realized the absolute need for it to be remodeled for an event center for DeSoto Parish and surrounding areas. Various plans were discussed to carry out these renovations.

A tribute to the family of Mr. Riemer Calhoun, Sr. is long overdue for the presentation of the Mansfield Female College buildings and property to the State of Louisiana as a museum to be enjoyed down through the years. The Mansfield Female College, oldest female college west of the Mississippi River and the “Jewell of DeSoto Parish”, was presented to Secretary of State Fox McKeithen from the front steps of the Museum’s main building in 2002. A large crowd of Mansfield and DeSoto Parish citizens was present and recognized the tremendous donation and its future value to the area. The Calhouns had developed the former three story Administration Building which was now a single story into one of the most gracious homes in the parish.

Tip 16 – Homestyle entertainment

I don’t know about you, but $40+ dollars just to watch a movie is a little rich for our pocketbook. Instead, we rent one, or even watch the prices in the stores and buy our favorite ones when they are on sale.

Need some inexpensive entertainment tips? Rent a movie. Go fishing. Take a walk. Cook together. There are so many things you can do to entertain yourself at home, and save that money you would otherwise spend on going out. It will also bring you and your family closer together, giving yourself an opportunity to talk more.
