Labor day week end 2014

Labor day week end 2014

WE STARTED OUR FIRST LAND OWNING ADVENTURE IN BEAUTIFUL BRANSON, MO. USA ON LABOR DAY WEEK END IN 1984. WE BOUGHT OUR FIRST PIECE OF LAND & GOT OUR FIRST DEED TO LAND IN BRANSON!! GARY & I HAD VACATIONED IN THE BRANSON AREA WITH OUR FAMILIES GROWING UP & TOGETHER WHEN WE MARRIED — & THEN BOUGHT LAND. AND EACH YEAR WE TRIED TO VISIT THE BRANSON AREA AT LEAST ONCE IF NOT MORE!!
WE HAVE WATCHED BRANSON TOTALLY & COMPLETELY CHANGE OVER THOSE YEARS– BUT HAVE  ALWAYS LOVED BRANSON & THE AREA!! WE FELT THAT ONE DAY BRANSON WOULD BE OUR FULL TIME HOME!! OVER THE YEARS WE TRIED TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN– BUT FOR MANY DIFFERENT REASONS IT DIDN’T WORK OUT FOR US.
WE BOUGHT INTO FALL CREEK RESORT BACK INTO THE LATE 80’S OR EARILY 90’S WE BOUGHT CONDO & CAMPING RIGHTS & USED THE RESORT LIKE OUR SECOND HOME FOR ALL THESE YEARS.
THEN IN 2008 WE VISITED BRANSON & BOUGHT A HOME ON FALL CREEK RESORT & WENT BACK  HOME TO KANSAS– & SOLD OUR BUSINESSES & PREPARED FOR AUCTIONS & SELLING OUT EVERYTHING WE OWNED IN KANSAS & WE RETIRED & MOVED TO BRANSON FULL TIME– THE FIRST MOVING TRUCK LOAD OF OUR STUFF CAME TO BRANSON ON LABOR DAY WEEK END IN 2008!!
WE CAN SAY THE SIZING DOWN & THE AUCTIONS WERE PART OF THE HARDEST THINGS WE HAVE EVER DONE IN OUR LIVES. SOOOOOOOOOO MCUH STRESS!!  WE DID SO WHEN THE MARKET DROPPED OUT OF EVERYTHING & WE LOST MORE MONEY THEN WE HAD EVER DREAMED ONE COULD LOOSE IN A MATTER OF DAYS!! WAY OVER ½ OF WHAT WE THOUGHT WOULD BE OUR RETIREMENT MONEY JUST VANISHED!!!  IT WAS GONE!!
BUT THE SIZING DOWN & MOVE WAS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS WE HAVE EVER DONE. WE BOTH WE BORN & RAISED  IN KANSAS & HAD LIVED ALL OF OUR LIVES IN KANSAS. EVERYTHING WE KNEW WAS IN KANSAS. WE DIDN’T REALIZE HOW WONDERFUL LIFE COULD BE OUT OF KANSAS.    🙂     WE NOW SAY KANSAS IS A GREAT PLACE TO BE FROM!!!
GARY & I BOTH LOVE THE OZARKS — WE LOVE THE AREA OF BRANSON & WE LOVE LIVING ON A RESORT & LIVING ON LAKE TANEYCOMO & ONLY 2 MILES FROM TABLE ROCK DAM & TABLE ROCK LAKE!!
THERE ARE ONLY AROUND 10,000 PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN BRANSON FULL TIME– BUT WE HAVE MILLIONS OF VISITORS EACH YEAR– & BECAUSE OF THOSE VISITORS– WE HAVE THE BEST ENTERTAINMENT & ACTIVITIES & SHOPPING & EATING — ETC ETC ETC– ANYONE COULD ASK FOR & OUR TAXES ARE SOOO MUCH CHEAPER THEN LIVING IN KANSAS & REALLY THE TOTAL COST OF LIVING IS BETTER THEN IN KANSAS. SO RETIREMENT IN BRANSON IS GREAT.
ALSO LOCALS GET DISCOUNTS TO SHOWS & AT BUSINESSES HERE IN BRANSON ALMOST EVERY WHERE.
WE LOVE BRANSON– WE LOVE ALSO BEING ABLE TO GO ON DAY TRIPS ALL OVER MO. & WE ARE ONLY 30 MINUTES FROM THE ARKANSAS STATE LINE & WE LOVE DAY TRIPS IN TO ARK ALSO!!
WHEN PEOPLE SAY TO US– DON’T YOU MISS KANSAS– WE CAN SAY— HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WE MISS SOME OF OUR FRIENDS & SOME OF OUR FAMILY BUT NO –WE REALLY DON’T MISS KANSAS. WHEN WE GO BACK TO VISIT– WE FORGET HOW THE WIND NEVER SEEMS TO STOP BLOWING– IT SEEMS SO FLAT & DRY & BARREN!! OUR SKIN & NOSES & BODY DRY OUT & WE FEEL LIKE WE CAN’T GET AIR IN KANSAS.
WHEN WE GET BACK HOME FROM A TRIP TO KANSAS–I WANT TO SPEND THE NEXT WEEK HUGGING ALL THE TREES IN OUR YARD!!!      🙂
WE CAN SIT ON OUR PORCHES & DECKS & PATIOS & THE FURNITURE NOT BLOW AWAY!!   🙂
WHEN WE LIVED IN KANSAS– & WE LIVED IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT AREAS & IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT PLACES–OVER THE YEARS  & IN ALL OF THEM– MY OUTSIDE FURNITURE USE TO BLOW AWAY!!     🙂
WHEN WE GO BACK TO KANSAS–WE FORGET YOU CAN’T EAT OUT SIDE WITH OUT HOLDING ONTO YOUR PLATE & THE FURNITURE— SO IT DOESN’T BLOW AWAY!! THE KANSAS WIND JUST TOTALLY WEARS US OUT NOW– WE HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!
GARY & I BOTH HAVE SAID– WE DON’T EVER WANT TO MOVE BACK TO KANSAS UNLESS WE HAD TO!!!!
WE LOVE BRANSON– TOTALLY LOVE LIVING HERE!!!
DID I SAY TODAY HOW MUCH WE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LIVING IN BEAUTIFUL BRANSON, MO USA?????????
THIS LABOR DAY WEEK END IN BRANSON– THE TOWN WAS PACKED WITH VISITORS & TOURISTS & WE LOVE IT– THEY ALL COME & SPEND THEIR MONEY & MAKE LIFE EVEN BETTER FOR US WHO LIVE HERE!!!     🙂
GARY & I HOPE TO BE ABLE TO SPEND MANY MORE  LABOR DAYS–HERE IN BEAUTIFUL BRANSON, MO. USA– EVERY SINGLE DAY WE SAY TO EACH OTHER HOW MUCH WE LOVE LIVING HERE & HOW WE SEE NEW BEAUTY EACH & EVERY DAY HERE.
HAVING MCS / MULTI-CHEMICAL SENSITIVITIES & HAVING TO SPEND MOST OF MY TIME INSIDE OF MY MCS SAFE HOME– HAS MADE IT HARDER TO MAKE MORE FRIENDS– BUT MAKING FRIENDS IS EASY HERE. AND WE LOOK AFTER SEVERAL HOMES HERE ON THE RESORT FOR FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS WHO DON’T LIVE HERE FULL TIME!! WE HAVE MADE A LOT OF FRIENDS HERE– EVEN WITH MY HAVING MCS. AND WE HAVE MADE FRIENDS WITH SEVERAL OF THE ENTERTAINERS HERE– & IT IS ALWAYS FUN TO SEE THEIR SHOWS HERE IN TOWN.
WE LOVE OUR HOME– WE LOVE RESORT LIFE– & WE LOVE OUR PRIVACY OUR HOME HERE ON THE RESORT GIVES US!! WE LOVE OUR GOLF CART RIDES TO THE LAKE MOST EVERY DAY & OUR RESORT HAS ABOUT EVERYTHING ANYONE COULD WANT OR NEED WITH OUT EVEN LIVING THE RESORT IF WE DIDN’T WANT TO!!     🙂     BRANSON HAS FAR MORE TO OFFER THEN ANY LARGE TOWNS WE LIVED IN AT KANSAS.
LIFE IS GOOD IN BEAUTIFUL BRANSON, MO USA & THE OZARKS!! OUR PURCHASE OF LAND IN BRANSON BACK IN 1984– WAS THE BEGINNING OF OUR HAPPY EVER AFTER HERE IN THE OZARKS!!
HOPE YOU ARE  HAVING A SUPER LABOR DAY WEEK END!!!

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!
