Friends for Dinner

Monday we were up and out for a grocery run. We went back to Harter House Grocery for a few supplies. We are cooking for John & Bridget and Mike & Leslie tonight.

On the way to the grocery we decided to take a side trip to check out the Escapees Park here in Hollister/Branson. Turkey Creek is a nice campground with mostly pretty level sites. They have about 6 pull-thru sites. 50amp sites are 17.00 per night or $100.00 per week. The pull-thrus are rented on a nightly basis rate only. Very nice lady that was working at the desk.

Didn’t have my camera so I didn’t get photos of the park. May try to go back for some photos….

John & Bridget and Mike & Leslie came over about 3:30. We had a light Happy Hour with cheese that we bought at Guggisburg Cheese Factory in Middlebury, IN and some Summer Sausage.

Mac was manning the grill to cook up some Bacon wrapped Chopped Sirloin and I was making some Baked Potatoes, Green Beans, and French Bread to go along with dinner.

The food must have been pretty good because we didn’t get a photo of anyone’s plate…LOL. Here are a few photos of the afternoon…






After dinner we played a round of 10 Penny and Leslie was the winner!!

We had a Carrot Cake Roll for dessert and visited for a little while and then our friends had to take off. John & Bridget were to get their new axle installed on Tuesday morning.

Today, Mac & I just hung out around the RV. I’ve been doing some laundry and Mac took a load over to the Laundry Mat here in the Park that needed bleached. Mac also ran the vacuum for me.

We have decided to stay on in Branson for one more night and not leave until Friday morning to go on to Garnett for a week. We have doctor appointments that we need to do, have the truck serviced & the Tow Haul checked….and try to fit in some visiting with our friends while we are there.

We also need to take some things out of the RV and put in storage…so it will be a very busy week in Garnett…

Update on our granddaughter, Ashley. Thing seem to be going pretty good. She is still in the hospital on bed rest but the doctors are still hoping to keep that little boy in his mommy’s tummy for 3 more weeks….so we will be praying that will happen.

Have a great day everyone!!

When in Branson, we stay at Turkey Creek. The sites are a bit tight, but you can't beat the price and the location.
