Our de-luxe motorcoach departs for our two-day, fun-filled adventure.
It’s eatin time already, we got dinner (paid for) on the way to Branson. Some of the relatives brought in a good catch so we are eatin’ at Flat Creek in Republic, known for it’s catfish, but they got other good stuff.
Our trip this year is “The Reason for the Season” so I don’t reckon there is any better way to start than with Jesus. And they got a big, fancy show all about him. Here’s what they say “From the bustling streets of Jerusalem to the raging Sea of Galilee, JESUS is an action-packed musical stage adventure for the whole family! Join Peter, Nicodemus, Mary Magdalene, and a multitude of others as they journey alongside the most famous person ever to walk the earth. Witness the most miraculous events in history as Jesus sets sail with fishermen and makes disciples out of the least-expected. The lives he touches will never be the same. Experience the greatest rescue story of all time as it comes to life on stage with massive sets, special effects and live animals in this original stage production.” Now… how about that?
We got supper planned and paid for at the Grand Buffet. They always do a good job on feeding us and if ya can’t find something to fill up on here, then you are in a bad way.
We will slip on over to the American Theater to see C.J. Newsom's Classic Country & Comedy stars critically-acclaimed vocalist, C.J. Newsom and Michael Jason Frost along with The Re-Cliners Band and eight-time comedian of the year, Terry Wayne Sanders.
Here’s what they are saying bout this show “With talent that continues to WOW and delight Branson audiences for their 9th Straight Year, Classic Country & Comedy proudly brings back the excitement and joy of when these popular songs were first introduced to the American public. From the sultry vocals of classic Patsy Cline songs to the high energy, foot-stomping arrangements of Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash and Garth Brooks, every well known melody comes alive, thrilling audiences of all ages. Television’s Hee Haw star, Terry Wayne Sanders will tickle your funny-bone with his family friendly, slap-stick comedy featuring Homer Lee, Barney Fife, Joan Rivers, Gramma Beulah, and more.” Sounds like a hoot, don’t it?
Ol Willamae has a lil surprise before we tuck in fer the night at the Edgewood Hotel.
