Ozark Mountain Christmas

The Ozark Mountain Christmas celebration in the Hollister/Branson area runs from the first weekend in November to the middle or end of December. To participate, this year, we got an "official" wreath at Branson Mill. We hung it on the loft, to add holiday cheer to the cabin.

Here is a closer look at the wreath.

Annette and Larry arrived last night by air in Springfield; I picked them up. They left for meetings in Illinois this morning, in the Honda Civic, but will return this weekend.

It was another very good day! ;-)

I saved your daughter's website, plan to look at all the pictures. Replied to your post about the house a few minutes ago. Is there any method to see when somebody posts a comment and replies to them? Rather time consuming to scroll through them all? How do you do it? Hope I am clear.

On blogger, always click on the box for "Email follow-up comments" - it will notify you when other comments are posted where you have posted. That is the only way I know of... but it works, pretty well.

Thanks for your note! ;-)

At last, I now don't have to scroll all through the posts. Glad I asked you and thanks for the instructions. Had two comments this morning, and it was nice to see that the "preview" worked. Thanks a lot.

Cute picture.
