Week ending on November 19th

This week was spent with Doctor appointments, Arm brace fittings, day surgery and initial recovery.

We got home from Saskatoon on the evening of the 16th of Nov. and everything went well, in fact very well.  I turned out it was not a rotator cuff repair but instead she had a rotator cuff decompression or a Acromioplasty. This was done arthroscopic and she will heal MUCH faster. She will NOT have to wear a sling for 6 weeks straight but just when the shoulder has pain.

Road Trip Back to Saskatchewan

Today we set off to return home. We put the motorhome in storage in Branson, MO this morning and are heading north. Teri got a phone call from her surgeon that there was a cancelation and she is slated for day surgery on her arm on Nov. 16th, 2011 in Saskatoon.

As we entered Iowa we say the devastation for earlier flooding of the Missouri River. The fields in the flood plain valley had not seen a crop this year.

This Photo is taken on interstate 29 going north at the Iowa border. Notice the river silt still on the highway. There are gas stations and hotels along this stretch that still have not reopened.

RVFEST Christmas in Branson

The tour we are on is called ‘RV Fest Christmas in Branson’ hosted by Les and Jean Potteiger. They did an excellent job of hosting a great small rally. Thanks again. Les and Jean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

from Les and Jeans Blog this is part of the recap.

The third RVFESTfun’ rally is history! The owners of seven RVs rendezvoused 5 November 2011 at America’s Best Campground (ABC), Branson, Missouri for an action-packed, seven-day rally. Attendees represented California (Beverly Hiltachk and Paulette “Casper” Nordahl), Florida (John and Audrey Murphy, and Bill and Martha Potteiger), Michigan (Joseph and Betty Medsker), Missouri (Larry and Judie Stocker), Virginia (Les and Jean Potteiger) and Saskatchewan, Canada (Terry and Teri Meyers) making this an International rally. Jean and I thank all for attending and supportingRVFEST Christmas in Branson.

Our scrumptious Welcome Dinner Saturday evening was served in the balcony of the Hughes Brothers Theater after which we were entertained by the unbelievable SIX, an a cappella group that sounds as if it is accompanied by a full orchestra, but there are no instruments - all musical sounds come from the SIX brothers! There are four more brothers that work behind the scene. They concluded the show with Silent Night accompanied by their Father playing his own arrangement on the piano. Their performance was outstanding to say the least. Their six Chevrolet Camaros are lined up by the street in front of the theater! Our rally was ‘off and running’!

Sunday on the agenda was the beautiful Casandre’ The Voice of an Angel in the afternoon followed by Hollywood’s Christmas Spectacular that evening. The vivacious Casandre’ is backed by a 10-piece live orchestra. She beautifully sang a variety of songs and entertained us with comedy as Aunt Erma! The Spectacularsingers/dancers entertained us with Christmas songs from the movies. We had great theater seats for all shows except the Spectacular and this influenced our evaluation of this show.

Christmas with the Lennon Sisters in the Andy WilliamsTheater Monday afternoon was a hit that featured sisters Janet, Kathy and Mimi, and at times, three of Janet’s granddaughters singing many Christmas songs. It appears that the musical Lennon family will continue to entertain America for many more years! We attended the spectacular Twelve Irish Tenors show that evening. We thoroughly enjoyed them. After the show, we met all twelve young ‘hunks’ in the lobby.

Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner and Show Tuesday afternoon was a Christmas spectacular featuring a North-South competition with trick horseback riders and a comedian as well as a spectacular Nativity scene with live animals and angels flying above with a video narration by Dolly Parton.

Wednesday morning was spent with Buck Trent who greeted us in the lobby before the show. The former Hee Haw star provides a wonderful show with talented entertainers. It is a pleasure to listen to vocalist Kenny Parrot as well as Buck and his entire band. That evening we were entertained by the one and only Oak Ridge Boys singing many of their hits as well as many Christmas songs. It was a ‘Country Day’ that pleased all!

Our Saskatchewan guests departed Thursday morning to return to Canada, by car, leaving their RV in Branson for a winter trip to Arizona. Teri had been waiting two years for a rotor cuff operation and when a last minute cancellation came up, she jumped at the opportunity to have her shoulder repaired.”

The blog goes on about the stuff we missed, but still we really enjoyed the part we where able to attend!!!

Saturday Night the 5th and SIX

The opening of the RVFEST was the group SIX. They were great!!!

We are staying in Branson at the ABC Campground. This is a great campground just out of town on a quiet road but very close to Branson. The fall colours are still present.
