How do I limit my many pictures of the day to a sensible amount for my blog?
We have learned one thing – that people arrive really early for scheduled programs around here. When we think we are too early, there are already a lot of people there – and there are gift shops everywhere.
We had fabulous seats – first row in the raised area on the first floor, which meant we did not have to look over or between anyone’s head. We were blessed by Christmas music from St. John Sanctuary Choir from Collinsville, Illinois, during the early part of our meal.
Cerwin is talking to the lady next to him. She is from Alaska and lives in a motor home – alone – traveling all over the country visiting family and places that interest her.
While Cerwin enjoyed coffee, I toured the ship. You can see him to the right of the flag decoration – in burgundy shirt with black vest. This photo was taken from the third level where meals were also served. When I got back, he went for a walk.
The after-dinner show. We learned one thing about shows in Branson. It is not always good to be seated in the front of the auditorium or along an aisle. 🙂 The lady seated on stage was chosen from the audience to ring a bell as this group sang Silver Bells.
There are only a few afternoon shows, so I checked the listing to see if we could make a 3:00 p.m. performance. We just made it to the Grand Country Music Hall in time and were able to purchase tickets to this funny, delightful afternoon.
The two men who are seated were chosen from the audience – to be this skit’s “dummies.” The comedians operated the men’s attached, large mouths. 🙂
It was a fun way to spend the afternoon.
I told Cerwin that the first few country-style songs sounded like the group could sing Southern Gospel. They had amazing harmony.
Pierce Arrow includes a Guinness World Record holder (right: lowest base), an American Idol Semifinalist (Luke Menard – left), Oak Ridge Boys former backup (long hair), and a licensed minister (tallest).
It was a delightful, fun-filled day. We are learning that this town is filled with amazing musical talent.
