Retired Navy veteran Wallace Cardwell will celebrate his 70th birthday on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11. Originally from Frankfort, Cardwell and his wife of 46 years, Charlotte, have two children: Wally the second and his wife, Kelly; and daughter, Rebecca and husband Robbie Barns, of Frankfort; and one grandson, Tucker Barns, of Frankfort.
The month of October is officially over and with that comes a lot of terminations and culminations. Marching band season ended with a bang; we made it to state finals and finished second. I’m so proud of our kids. Daylight savings is just four days away, no more 8 p.m. sunsets. The colder weather has slowly but surely started, at least in the morning, before sunrise at the bus stop.
Like many of you, I am already planning Thanksgiving dinner. I try to cook one new thing every year while maintaining the core standards of turkey, stuffing, etc.
Halloween is just four days away and no costumes have been bought or made for my 5-year-old. I guess I know what I’ll be doing this weekend. There is an “adult Halloween” happening on Main Street on Friday, maybe I’ll go as a chef since I haven’t made a costume for myself yet either. It sounds like a lot of fun and I hope to see some familiar faces, no clowns.
