We arrived in Branson on Tuesday Staying at the SKP park in Hosister. We really like this area and the weather has been outstanding.Opened up my e-mail Wed. morning and found out that John & Lora Newby (Our escapee 2007 classmates and friends) were in Springfield visiting a friend and wanted to see if we could meet up somewhere. Well after much thought (10 seconds)gave them a call and set up lunch at Mel's hard luck dinner in Branson. Mel's dinner has good food and the employees sing for you, they are all inspiring entertainer's trying to make a go at it in the music industry and are very good. J&L arrived with their friend Mary a very nice lady that worked with Lora in Alaska and is considering the RV lifestyle. We had a great lunch then drove down to Branson Landing and walked around the shops and lake area which is very scenic. We got caught up on our summer travels then bid farewell. (Safe travels dear friends) Kathy and I secured tickets to the Ray Stevens show for Thursday evening we have wanted to see him for a long time but he has not been here when we have been in the past,but we finely caught up with him YEA!!! He put on a great show and performed his hits from past years, it was a very good day and evening. We will leave Wed the 13th and head west to AZ until next stop. Safe travels.
