    Five Shows in Three Days

    It’s 602.7 miles to Branson, MO.

    Branson is in the Ozark Mountains. The community was named after Reuben Branson, postmaster and operator of a General Store in the area in the 1880s.

    Three couples, including the Godfrey’s, Hackett’s and Baker’s made the journey on Sunday, September 28th.

    Map Quest says it’s 602.7 miles to Branson, and it should take you approximately 9 hours and 17 minutes. We made it home in 12 hours. I actually thought we driving to Florida. I didn’t think we would ever get home. I asked Ginger if she would drive on several pit stops, but she let me struggle all the way home.

    We saw five shows in three days.

    Every show was outstanding. But my favorite show of them all was our visit to the Lambert’s Café in Ozark, Mo.

    Dennis Baker, our official tour guide, scheduled lunch on Monday just before we reached Branson.

    People who visit Lambert’s Cafe for the first time (the Godfrey’s) are invariably amazed at the generous portions served on each order. These generous servings along with their “THROWED ROLLS” have made Lambert’s Café a must see. I encourage you to log in at and see the action yourself. 8,000 rolls are tossed each day. Yes, some of them hit the floor, but someone picks them up, and they throw you another one. I actually saw only one dropped flying roll. The Lambert Café’s motto says it all: “We hope you came hungry, leave full, and hopefully have a laugh or two.”

    Branson has 100+ shows to see. 200 places to stay, and over 250 places to eat.

    Below are a few things to see and do in Branson:

    Championship Golf, Lake tours, amazing shopping, hiking, Dinner Cruises, horseback riding, mini golf, world class fishing, Zip-lines, Wineries, sailing, kayaking and spas.

    Everyone ask if we would go back to Branson? The answer is “yes”.

    When I heard about the world-class fishing and championship golfing, it was a no brainer.

    This week’s bottom line: One of their lakes (Taneycomo) holds both rainbow and brook trout. Fishing in the morning. Golfing in the afternoon. Just what the doctor ordered.
