First hike of the year :)

Wednesday was a glorious day. With temps heading up near 60, we decided that after breakfast we would all get out for some exercise and fresh air. Cycling to the trail head, the bikes were parked and, we headed out into the woods (Conservation Area). Hovis came with us and we hiked up to the Lookout Tower by Route 76 in Branson. Michelle wasn’t working so also came along. It was a WONDERFUL walk and... read more

Daniel wanted to go... read more

I made a chocolate pecan pie so we enjoyed the... read more

Back in the Arts and Crafts business!

Last Wednesday we took a trip to the Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri) and came home with a new business, ABC Photo Art. As we viewed this business and talked with the then owners, Richard and I were totally overwhelmed and yet ready for the challenge. It’s a good job we bought the size trailer that we did as we came home with that thing loaded! Where to start? We honestly had no clue but knew we had to... read more
