A long-time Bruce business has closed the doors. Ronald and Chris Clark have sold the inventory of their junk/antique store– The Tradin’ Place, to re-tire.
It seems that every municipality in the county is looking at speed bumps to slow down speeders.
Rain and storms Thursday made for a pretty quiet Halloween. Bruce’s Fall Festival was moved to the Bruce Museum due to the rain. It worked out really well, although it was very crowded. Trunk or treaters changed to using tables with many adult helpers in costume.
Addi Claire and I finally got to decorate her gingerbread haunted house Monday night, a week later than we anticipated, which was, of course, my fault.
Halloween needs to get here quickly. I’m running out of pumpkins. I usually buy five pumpkins in various sizes and colors to decorate around the outside of the house for Halloween. Except for the one we carve for a Jack-O-Lantern, I leave the others out until Thanksgiving.
Two new businesses opened in Calhoun City last week– the Laundromat and Trade to Treasures.
