We drove into Branson and went to the Wyndam Vacation Properties office and picked up our package. We were booked at the Hilton Landing Hotel in Branson. What a lovely hotel. I just love Hilton Hotels. They have such nice amenities.  The room was beautiful and overlooked the Branson Tour Railway.We had a lovely dinner at Famous Dave's Restaurant. We had some of the best barbecue we have had in years. They had all different kinds of sauce from different parts of the South. We ordered the special which was a huge platter full of ribs, pulled pork, chicken, fried potatoes, baked beans, corn on the cob, cornbread muffins. It was everything the brochure said it was. I don't remember eating barbecue that good in the past 30 years. We waddled out of there and went looking around until we went to the Legends show.

We had picked up the tickets in the afternoon for the Legends show. The stars were "Elvis Presley, George Strait, the Temptations, Patsy Cline, and the Blues Brothers. Of course, they were impersonators, but the were pretty good impersonators. Looks like this is a really good time to go to Branson. The prices were not too bad and there didn't seem to be a whole lot of people there. They had started the Christmas show and we really had a good time. We had our picture made with Elvis and George Strait. I am not one to be impressed by celebrity, so fake ones didn't do much for me. I was amazed that them for their talent. In fact, we saw them again on Branson TV doing their own thing and they were good on their own. 'Patsy Cline' and Jake from the Blues Brothers sang "Mary Did you know?" near the end of the show and it was a show stopper. It was almost worth the trip for that one song. It sent chills. If you are not a Christ-follower, you might not enjoy the shows there, because they are not afraid to proclaim his name. I had a wonderful time.
