We're just back...

...from Branson this afternoon. I have been reading all the blogs I follow and catching up.
We had a wonderful relaxing time. Got down there on Wednesday afternoon and got settled in our condo. It was very foggy on Thursday and Friday mornings. You couldn't even see the trees that were just off of our deck for a while. By around 8:30 or 9:00 it had all burned off and we had a beautiful sunny day. We went out to Silver Dollar City on Thursday. It was the 'Craft Festival' so there were a lot of extra booths set up around the city with 'outside' vendors[not usually part of the city] selling a big variety of things. I saw a lot of interesting stuff, but nothing I couldn't live without! We took in 2 different shows there, too. One was like a little mini-musical about "Moving West". The singing in this one was outstanding! Great voices. The other one was a family of "Bluegrass" singers that were very good,too.
Friday we slept late, did a little shopping and ended the day with "The Concert". Remember, I told you Ron had gotten tickets for Johnny Mathis concert for our anniversary. When you go to onw of these concerts, and it is someone you have admired for several years, you often wonder."Will it be as good as I am imagining it is going to be?" Well it was!!! The venue was sold out and it was worth every bit of the time and effort anyone made to get there! He sang lots of our favorites, but quite a few newer arrangements, too. A lady next to us had a souvenir book about him [I tried to get one today but the shop wasn't open :-(], and it gave his birthdate, etc. We figured out that he must be around 72. But he sure didn't act or sing like it! He was on pitch and smooth with the delivery;--It Was GREAT!

Judy, thanks for the sweet comments on my blog. After my little conflict I needed that.

It sounds like you guys had a great time in Branson! I hope you haven't unpacked yet as you have another big trip to go on! I wish I could go too!
