Your trip sounds wonderful. My hubby and I like to take the local roads also you get to see so much life along the way. We also loved Branson. We went at Christmas and the shows were wonderful Saw Andy Williams one of his last shows there. We saw Moses at Sight & Sound in Lancaster PA. It was wonderful. I loved the part when he was placed in the basket. So moving... Thanks for sharing your trip with us. Felt like I was along with you.


Been wondering where you were, glad to hear you are back and had a good time on your travels...home is great and safe, but sometimes we just want to see the country and what's out there. Sure makes us appreciate home, though, right?
We just started Entrusted last week in my Bible study group...I think you and I are in for some good stuff!
How's the driving going? Getting easier, I bet!
Take care...and God bless!

I'm so glad you had such a wonderful vacation! It is always so nice to see a a new blog post:)


Welcome back! I always enjoy your travelogs! And the John Deere Museum always makes my heart strings sing since my now 15 year old son is a farmer at heart (we do descend from a few generations of farmers in Michigan) and was a John Deere fan for many seasons (think bedding/tractor clock/tractor lamp/tractor clothing). We visited a few times and drove on the west side of the Mississippi River once down to St. Louis when the kids were little. Glad you're home!
