On The Road Again!

Need Gas?
On the road again! Talk about a fish out of water! I have no clue where we are! Best I can tell, we are somewhere mid country, south of Canada! They tell me we are in the Ozark's. Wasn't that a TV show? Take me away from the coast and my sense of direction, poof, gone. Moving to Florida from Massachusetts was never a big deal for me, I consider Florida an overflow of Massachusetts, having two coasts. My sense of direction always in tact.

So, as bodily functions would have it, I needed a rest room. John suggested, Kum & Go, where they sell gas as well. Now close your eyes and think about that for a moment...... Maybe I was a little punchy, but I have to tell you I was absolutely hysterical. Come and go where they sell gas? I realized it was spelled differently later!
I have learned so much about food and how it is prepared here. There is no shortage of fried food, vegetable, fish poultry or game. You can order a whole plate of hog jowls, smothered in white beans and they throw in a King Edward cigar or Big Red chewing gum, as a side! 
SAY, WHAT! Maybe we crossed the border or something when I was napping???
All kidding aside, we are so fortunate to have such a beautiful country. The history here is bathed in the richness of tradition. Discovering this area for the first time is like seeing it thru the eyes of a child. We are in Branson, Missouri, and our biggest decision is to pick what show we are going to attend tonight. Hear they like country music in this part of the country. How lucky am I?

Pin It!

Funny!
Both times I was in Branson we saw Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Saw several others but that's the only one I remember, so I highly recommend it! It's funny and the music is awesome!

You are too funny. Glad to see you're having a blast, even though your compass is turned around.
