Another Ozarks' Experience
The area I am from in the States is called "The Ozarks". It is a beautiful area with lots of trees and hills. It can be really beautiful when all of the trees are green like they are right now from all of the rain, or when it is autumn and all of the trees are changing colors.
There are lots of things to do in the Ozarks. I already wrote a post about one of our experiences, and that was going to Silver Dollar City. Another place worth visiting is Branson Missouri. There are so many things to do in Branson that a person could not do everything in a whole month if they tried. There are lots of Music Shows, mostly country, blue grass and gospel. There are also museums, go-carts, putt putt golf courses, arcades etc.
Well, we were invited by some special friends to go see one of the many, many famous music shows which is called "The Presleys". No, they are not related to Elvis, but the Presleys Music Show has been around for years. In fact, they were the first to start a music show in the Branson area.
The show was fabulous and included all of the kinds of music mentioned above. Besides singing, each member of the show played at least 3 musical instruments each. Also, there was lots of comedy.
The man who started the Presleys show is now 84 years old. He used to be really involved with all of the different aspects of the show. Now he is still involved, but only plays the bass fiddle, but if you ask me, that is still pretty impressive for someone who is 84.
So, if you are ever passing through Branson and wonder what might be a good show to visit, I would highly reccommend "The Presleys". It is just good-ole, old-time entertainment for the whole family.
