Branson, MO, RV Rally—Day 1

After a good night’s sleep, we awoke wanting our coffee.  I made a 4-cup pot, and was ready to make Kay’s instant cappuccino when she realized the mix had been forgotten.  Improvising, I heated about a half cup of milk in the microwave to near boiling, and poured hot, strong coffee and hot milk into the cup simultaneously, creating café au lait, a French coffee, which she really liked.  After coffee, I joined other Travelers in the rally room for more coffee and great conversation.  Regular attendance at these coffees provide an education on just about any aspect of RVing, or anything else for that matter.  Anyway, they are quite entertaining.  After coffee and breakfast, Kay attended a Ladies’ Craft session on pressing and drying flowers.  She made an attractive bookmark and several good looking occasion cards.  After the craft session and quick lunch, she and Cheryl, our friend from near Springfield, went shopping (for baby clothes for our as yet unborn grandson, Bear) and saved us soooo much money you wouldn’t believe.  She insisted that I look at the baby outfits!  He’s going to be one of the best dressed kids in central Arkansas.

OIMGP0024Pur rally hosts spent the afternoon frying turkeys for dinner, and it provided an opportunity to sit around and shoot the bull with other rally attendees, and enjoy a great happy hour.  The fried turkey was the centerpiece of our evening meal, with mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and rolls, and of course a myriad of desserts.  What a feast!  After dinner we “retired” outside in the nice evening air, formed a circle with our chairs, and had a great visit since many of us had not talked since early last year.  It was really good renewing old acquaintances.
