back from Branson, Mo.

We made it back... all in one piece from our weekend jaunt to Branson.  No we weren't there for the shows... nor to go on the 55 mph zip line. My husband wanted to attend a ham radio convention and do the kit build... so off we went.
We took Route 13 to Springfield and then  65... most of the way is quiet with little traffic. The Lake of the Ozarks season hasn't opened yet. We stopped at a few antique places. We were going to stop at Lambert's- the home of the throwed roll - but the line wrapped around the building and tour buses were in the parking lot. So  we went next door to "taste" wine and cheese... and bought some of both!
We got to Branson and even with map and GPS  made a misstep and got lost. Through pure luck we actually found out hotel!
Bob enjoyed his kit building and ham stuff... I enjoyed meeting the wives. Thanks to one of them, a few of us went out into the "world of Branson" for lunch, site seeing and Andy's Custard ( YUMM!). All the locals were saying that we were lucky ... that we were in a quiet time etc. If this was quiet... I'm not going back when it's not!! We did not go to the Titanic Museum... on the huge ferris wheel,  or the zip lines which are reported to hit 55mph!!
Our trip home was completely uneventful... unpacking the car was a high light... followed by crashing in the recliner!

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comments. That's really neat that you took a class and made a sweetgrass basket. I've watched basketmakers working quite often and would like to try my hand.
I enjoyed looking through your blog and I love the needlefelting on your Easter eggs. I've done felting but never needle felting. So many things to try, so little time!
