We moved again

We left our friends house yesterday and drove the short distance to Hidden Cove RV Park in Arley AL. This is a real nice small park and is very quiet. Bristol loves it here and wants to walk all the time. We will be here for 3 weeks and hope to have a great time. This park is right the Lewis Smith Lake. It is a real big lake with some 500 miles of shore line and 35 miles long. Would be nice to fish it as it is one of the best for Bass in the state. All for now so have a good night.

Having a great time in Moulton AL with Dick and Teresa

                                     GO HERE TO SEE SOME PICTURES HERE AT DICKS

We have been a bit busy with the Turkey Shoot ( I did get lucky and win a Ham ) and the Zombie Walk that night. Me and Chris made it the whole 2 miles even though we were last. Hmmm I thought it was a walk but it was a run so most every one ran off and left us. We had a Bronco party yesterday and the whole family was there to watch them WIN. We had lots of good Mexican food and it was real tasty. Tomorrow we head out again to a town called Arley AL for three weeks. Then off to Florida. Will keep you all informed so stay tuned for updates.

WE made it to Moulton AL

We made it to our friends house yesterday about noon. We spent the day with Dick and Teresa and Bill and Chris chatting about all our old friends and times back in Denver. It was lots of fun catching up and seeing how much fun they are having down here in south. They sure have a nice place here. We will be here for 4 days then we will travel a little south to our next stop. This morning Bristol wanted to go outside and explore some and got to meet his first horse. There are several of them here and some large dogs too. So Bristol is a bit nervous around them but they seem to not care about him at all. Today we are going to a Turkey Shoot ( and no I am not the target) With the family then later we are doing a Zombie Walk. So we will be busy today.

Last Day

                     There are over 200 pictures in this set so take your time.

Ok this is our last day here in Branson. We did our last show this morning and it was a good one. We went to the Red Skelton Tribute Show. Red was one of my favorite people and Tom Mullins did a great job. He even looks allot like him. Guess it was too early in the day for the show as there was not allot of people there. But to me the show was one of the best. Yesterday we went to the  Ralph Foster Museum at the College of the Ozarks. This one great museum and has tons of stuff to look at. It will take you most of the day to see it all. Last night we went to the Shoji Show and that was another great show. This guy sure can play the Fiddle. Wow I sure like him and will go see him again next time we come here.
We had a great time in Branson and Gloria was right on about this place. I have to thank her for talking me into coming here. All the shows were good and there is lots to see and do around here. Just didn't have enough time to see it all so will have to do it again some day.

Relaxing Some?

Didn't do much yesterday but I did get the Motor Home cleaned on the outside. It sure needed it.  Then last night we went to the Dixie Stampede. It is a place owned my Dolly Parton and is a dinner play house. We had a good dinner that you eat with your fingers. It was Soup,Chicken, Pork, Corn, a roll and a Apple Turnover. The show was a Civil War Cowboy Horse Show. It was good and we sure had a good time.
Today was cool with a bit of rain. We went to the Roy Roger Jr. show. Dusty (that he is known by) and his band the High Riders sing songs and Dusty tell about his dad.  We got to meet him and his son Dustin also got to see the stuffed Trigger and Bullet and even Dale Evans horse. Even went shopping at Wal-Mart.

Fun Time in Branson MO.

On Friday we started the day by trying to find the post office. It was in old town Branson and we took the main drag to get there and that was a mistake. Traffic was the worst. But we made it and then went to Dick's 5 & 10. Nice old place and fun to walk through. After that we went to Ride the Ducks. Now that was fun, you get on an rebuilt amphibious WW 2 vehicle. It takes you through some of Branson and then out onto Table Rock Lake. I even got to drive the Duck and got a license to prove it. It was lots of fun and something all should do. After that we went back to the house had dinner and then headed out to the Baldknobbers Show. It is the oldest show in Branson. It started in 1959 and is still running. It is a comedy/musical. We really enjoyed the show and had a great time as they are real good. One thing we are learning is Branson and some of the businesses love there Veterans. The show is one of them and let Vets in for free and also dose a bit in the show for veterans. That sure was along day and by the end we were real tired.
Today it started all over again. We started by doing breakfast here in the park. Then off to see the Titanic. It is a Museum on the ship and its sinking. They had lots of things from the ship and lots on the people who were on her. We could not take any picture in the museum but it was great watching the videos and looking at all the things they had gotten from the ship and the people who survived.
Then we went the Fish Hatchery and looked at all the Trout they are raising to put in the water around here. Always like to watch the thousands of fish swimming around wanting to be fed. Then we went to Charlie's Steak House for dinner and to see Gloria's friend Rebecca Dawn who is the singer there. I got to meet her and her husband Joe and we had one of the best Steaks ever. Then back home for the night. Hope tomorrow will be easer.

Now in Branson

We got to Branson about 12:30 to day. We are camped at Treasure Lake Resort. It is under my RPI membership so the cost is not all that much. We will be here for a week so we can see all the sights. Gloria has already book several shows for us to see. The park is a big one with some 600 sites and lots of trees for shade in the summer. I think we will like it here for sure. They have an outdoor pool and an indoor pool with game room and lots of other stuff to do and we are close to a Stake-N-Shake so Gloria will be real happy. Will post more as time goes on and some pictures too when I get them.

Getting ready to head out on our winter trip.

Well we have been busy the last week or so. With meeting up with friend and family and all that stuff.  Got new glasses for the both of us. So now we can see all that stuff we see on out trips. Bristol won the Football pool at the Bar we go to. He got to get a new bag of food and some new toys and even paid his own bill at the vet for his checkup and shots. Had Dinner at the Elk's Lodge with Gloria's family Aunt Melba and Uncle Don and his wife Dianne. It was a good meal as Burritos go at the Lodge. We will be going to dinner tonight with our friend and old neighbor Sunny and Sissy Then tomorrow with our friend from the bar, then lunch on Thursday with friends from CDOT Jerry and Clay. So as you can see we are not eating at home much and Gloria keeps saying she is forgetting how to cook. Hmmm that better not happen. Well that is about all for now till we hit the road.
Sweet dreams Dianne.
