Just One More

Today, Sunday marks the end of the blizzard of shows we've seen here in Branson.  We have one more show to see tonight and that will wrap up the entertainment portion of our stay.  We've stayed longer this year than last to not run ourselves into the ground by cramming too many shows in too few days, but Marti still picked a bunch for us to see.  It's easy to overdo it with all that is available.

Tomorrow we take my dad and Marti's sister Gail to the Springfield/Branson Airport for their flights home and then we'll remain here a couple of days to recover before we head out to our next destination and adventure.

I guess we handle fun here in Branson like we drive, lots of shows like driving lots of miles.  We have to call it "BSD" (Branson Show Disorder).  Even though we're retired and could have taken a more leisurely visit here, because of our guests who both still work, we had to return to our old ways of cramming in so much in limited vacation time.

Still, it was worth every minute.  Branson is a great place to visit.  Plus it has given me a great idea, we could buy a house here and open a business:  Refurbishing fiddle and violin bows.  Just about every show here has fiddles and violins in it and they all burn up their bows playing the "Orange Blossom Special" faster than anyone else.  This business could make us a fortune!  ;c)


I'll do a wrap up of the shows we've seen and our recommendations in case anyone gets down this way.  Some were so good, even though we've seen them before, we'd see them again.  One or two, well, we won't darken their doors again.  Stay tuned.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

  1. Another retirement disorder you've developed and now you want to open a business fixing bows, I guess that would be BBD (broken bow disorder), just another disorder to deal with.

    1. My dad will be 91 December 2nd. He works part time and does a lot more volunteer hours beyond the requirements of the job. He has a hard time sitting still. Hits the gym four or five days a week. He's proud of the fact that he weighs only four pounds more than when he was drafted into the Army Air Corps during WWII.

  5. One of our trips to Branson was during the Christmas programs. Won't ever do that again. I was so sick of Christmas carols (the same ones over and over and over again by the different artists) until I just wanted to cry. However! If you get a chance to see the Rockettes Christmas Show - it is fantastic. I am really looking forward to your reviews cause Branson is on our list to get to in the not too distant future.

  6. Not so sure I'd want to live in Branson. However, the better job for you might be to just relax a little now that you're not entertaining.
