We spent two (2) weeks at Branson MO, camped on one of the arms of Lake Taneycomo. It went fast as we were busy, went to one (1) show, 'The Duttons', made a flying trip to St. Louis as my cousin pasted away, went to the home of 'Throwed Rolls' and other various activities. We stay at the Escapees park 'Turkey Creek'. Downtown at the waterfront is a whole new area called 'The Landing'. Huge amount of shops, watershows, eating and a 'Bass Pro' shop.

Sat we drove from Branson west through the Ozarks Mtns to Pineville MO. A beautiful drive but very hilly and a lot of sharp curves. Ate lunch there at the only rest in town. Great hamburgers though. This took us all around the lake chains of Beaver, Table Rock and Lake Taneycomo. Today will be church, watching NASCAR (since it was rained out last night) washing the motorhome and taking Momma out for supper and a movie.
Monday will be getting the baseplate replaced on the car that was bent coming in. Not sure what I'll do for the 5 hours it will take to replace it. Nothing around the RV shop close.

Happy Mothers Day.

Back in Branson

Thursday we again attempted to play golf, but again rain. This gave me a chance to check out the baseplate on the car which we noticed seem to be point downward. On coming into Branson last week I had to make an emergency stop as a pickup pulled out into a lane in front of us. Called Blue Ox and they sent me to a dealer. Bottomline is that the baseplate is bent and must be replaced before towing again. Don't think this should have happened.

St. Louis

Tuesday and Wed, Norma and I traveled from Branson to St. Louis to my cousins funeral. Sad time for the family. However we did get to see a lot of relatives that we had not seen for awhile.

Computer failure

Our old computer failed with a power supply problem and could not be fixed without replacing the motherboard.

So we bought a new one with Windows Vista. After a week I am still trying to get things to work.
What a mess. Every day is a fight to make a little progress, but most of my hardware won't work and there is no drivers available. Much of the software we had also won't work.

Am slowly replacing most of it.
