Just in case anyone was wondering, "Yes, we're still alive!" Behind again on my blog, but I have a great excuse -- we've been busy...LOL!! With over 45 rigs expected into the park for the Labor Day weekend, we worked last Friday from 5-11 PM, then Saturday from 1-9 PM and again on Sunday from 8-5 PM -- WHEW, we were tired, but not too tired to take in some of the Labor Day activities.
We were first going to eat at Cantina Laredo, but there was an hour and a half wait, so we opted for the San Francisco Oven instead. We were joined by two other workamping couples -- Susan and Ron (up front) and Peggy and Ken (right of Ron).
We all ate fairly healthy -- salads and a half sandwiches or soup, etc. However, we blew that when we went around the corner for Dino's Karrot Cake and coffee.
Dino is an accomplished pianist. After telling him, we were workampers at Branson Lakeside RV Park, he invited us to an unadvertised concert at his brother's small church next Sunday night. We plan on attending.
I also had a friend visit last week. Clara has been a dear, trusted friend since the fifth grade. She and her husband, Michael, were celebrating their 46th wedding anniversary. Clara spent the day with me while Michael attended a meeting in Springfield on Monday. This is the only picture I got of Clara -- as we visited the chapel at the College of the Ozarks -- more to come on that in a later post.
I am not very happy with my camera -- not sure if it's just the operator or the camera, but a lot of our pictures are blurry and just are not that good. I'm thinking of purchasing a new one, altho this one is only a year old. I hate to spend the money, but I am just plain not happy with it! Maybe I just need to find the book and read to see if I can figure out what the problem is. It probably is something simple -- like the person behind the camera!
While sitting on a bench waiting for me to do a little shopping on Labor Day, this butterfly decided to join Alan. He rested there for quite some time.
We've certainly had a change in the weather -- YAY -- and Fall is in the air. We actually had to turn the heat on this morning as the temperatuare dipped in the upper 40s. Fall is my favorite time of the year, so I am enjoying the cool weather.
Our time left in Branson is growing short. We will be leaving here on the 16th. We have enjoyed our first workamping experience and are looking forward to our next one in Bushnell, Florida, in January. Two couples left last week and another leaves this week. We will miss the workampers we have met here, but it's very possible we will see them again "down the road." That's just one more reason this lifestyle is sooo great!
Until next time, may God continue to bless our voyage and watch over our family and friends everywhere.
