This One's On Us

We're in Branson, Missouri this week and we'll be attending three shows while we're here, thanks to the Stormy Point Village sales staff. That's a story for another day, though. We'll do the shows rather than playing golf because even staying at a campground on the grounds of the golf resort doesn't give us enough of a discount to play. Tourist area, don'cha know?

But look what I discovered when I guided Denny into our site here in Branson:
Yep, that's an ouchy! The post is a modification Denny made to place our TV satellite dish near the roof line when we're parked. It saves him having to put the dish on a tripod, leveling that and pounding stakes into the ground to secure the tripod in high winds. He loves using his "roof mount" but somehow, somewhere on our journey here from Ashdown, Arkansas on Tuesday we had a low hanging branch or pole arm or something scrape down our roof and snag the pole which pulled one side of our ladder out and snapped it. Ouch, indeed.

We'll work on getting that replaced and install it ourselves once we in Ohio for three weeks where we have the time to get the ladder shipped to us. In the meantime, we're just wandering around Branson acclimating ourselves, playing tourist.

Don't forget to shop the outlet malls there. We Arkansans travel all the way to Branson just for shopping.

You've been on the road since when? That must be a record of some sort. Seems like a great way to live though.
