 Carol's Journey

Branson Extraordinaire 2014

My first trip to Branson indeed extraordinaire
Three days and 54 passengers in crisp Fall air
Both tour guide and bus driver promoted safety
On and off bus but also fall hazards along the way

Join me now as I highlight our fun packed adventure
Put your feet up and enjoy some deserved R&R too
First day at 10:00 as we left Rockport after break
Apple fritter rolls passed out mouthwatering great

All meals superb with two breakfast and dinner buffets
Lunch various places paid on our own all three days
Sunday lunch one of four choices to pick from to eat
Chicken salad to go and snacks in place of dinner late

On our journey there and back we watched several videos
First If The Statue of Liberty Could Speak veterans tribute
Next Johnny Carson Tonight Show clips everyone laughing
Saw Brett Family Summer Show DVD lady won in drawing

Played games on bus with several different prizes awarded
Auto picture bingo needed first and last columns completed
Nebraska county quiz with clues like first U.S. president
Word search on Branson things related to any tourist visit

Osceola Cheese Outlet sampling some 250 varieties of cheese
Branson Craft Mall on site crafts and wooden rose for ladies
Saturday night surprise tour of spectacular Christmas lights
Sunday Russell Stovers plus pecan shop samples to delight

Branson shows on Friday night Oct. 31st saw Pierce Arrow
Male quartet had longest gospel section and other styles mellow
Pre-show magician tricks and audience volunteers along with it
Sidekick comedian laughter galore during show Harley Worthit

Saturday morning saw The Bretts family of 5 all very talented
Their show longest tribute to veterans and Christmas focused
After lunch saw Daniel O’Donnell Show in 2500 seat theater
His fancy footwork and Irish tenor voice I will always remember

Jonah at Sight and Sound Theater was a very well done production
From all the cast, animals, moving stage props, and years preparation
Jonah ran away from God in rebellion and faced resulting consequences
May we repent and seek His help to change any wayward tendencies

To all my readers thanks for tagging along and hope you had a blast
After months of anticipation, the trip was well worth the wait at last
Special thanks to God for the financial gift that made the trip possible
So many countless ways He provides blessings that only He is able
