Branson

Here we are in the hill of Southern Missouri and I do mean hills. It’s been 4 weeks since we came. We are staying at a Jellystone campground in Forsyth which is about 12 miles East of Branson.  The first couple of weeks there wasn’t much to do as the metal building was not to the point where we could do anything inside. There were a couple of problems which further delayed getting the roof on the building. We were about to spend a few day building a shed where we could store our tools and have them locked up at the site. branson4We also spent one day in Springfield at the old Central Bible College campus do some clean up for the campus to be sold.

The roof finally got on the building and we began framing some of the internal walls. Since there weren’t any exterior walls all we could do is build them and wait for the outside walls to be framed in. The outside wall finally got framed infirst-assembly and we were able to start putting up the wall we had built and several more.

Sheeting went on the outside of the building and this is what the building looked like by the end of the day Wednesday.

The sofits have to be framed in and the siding will go on. A company is doing the outside of the building we are doing the inside.

We’ve only worked on the building for 8 days and there will be months more of work to finish the inside.

We’ve also had time to take in some of the sites around Branson. We’ve had the opportunity to attend a couple of shows. We went to see the China Acrobats

and the Presley’s show.

Also one day we went to Dogwood Canyon.

One night after church we went to Shepard of The Hills to take a trolley ride to see all the Christmas decorations. Couldn’t get many pictures but the ride lasted over an hour. In Branson Christmas starts in early November.img_20161113_211546286

For Thanksgiving we went with one of the other couples to Branson Landing and had a traditional Thanksgiving dinner on the Landing Princess as we traveled up and down the lake. The meal was good, the company was good, and the scenery was good. Turned into a bright sunny day after a cloudy morning.

For those of you who made it this far thanks for stopping by. Until next time God Bless and I pray that you had a Great Thanksgiving and took time to be thankful for all the blessings of the past year.
