Branson Week-End Nov 12 - 13

Steph and I took a little break from home building and went to Branson, Mo. the weekend of November 12 and 13th.  We joined our friends from Houston, Sharon and Dave Haynes.  We saw three shows, all with a Christmas theme, including Andy Williams, the Twelve Irish Tenors, and the Miracle of Christmas.

Thanks to a wonderful Son, Steph and I had a spectacular room at the Hilton Branson Landing.  Our room overlooked the main street of shops and the water fountain.  Branson Landing is the new outdoor shopping mall on Taneycomo Lake (really White River) and all the good shops are located at the mall. 

The patio for our room (we were on the 4th floor) overlooked the main water fountain area along the riverwalk.  Late at night the fountain shoots water to the beat of the music being played.  We arrived back to the room around 11:00 pm Friday night and the fountain was shooting water to the Star Spangled Banner and included fire coming out of the back tubes in the picture.

When your benefactor has achieved Platinum Status you get Royal Treatment.  We had a "condo room" that had a living room/kitchen, the patio, a huge bathroom, and an outstanding bedroom.

The window at the head of the bed looked out to one of the mall streets and the behind the drapes to the right was a sliding door to the patio.  We had a great visit with our friends, saw some great shows, and enjoyed a great night at the Hilton thanks to Brent.  Keep buying jet fuel for N397DR so that Mom and I can have another mini vacation.  We will get your rooms ready for your family at the LakeviewDream -- Thanks a lot Brent!!!
