What a Week!!

My two sisters and I embarked on a several day trip to Branson, MO last week.

The highlight of the Branson stay was seeing the play "Moses" at the Sight and Sound Theater.  It was magnificent.  If you ever get the chance to see any of these plays, don't miss them.  I have seen Noah, Jonah, Joseph and Moses.  The scenery (can you imagine the parting of the sea scene?) and the actors and all of the live animals are just unforgettable.

We then shopped, ate, slept, shopped, ate and slept again.  Over and over.  We had a great time of fellowship being with each other.

Sunday morning I was awaken with calls from Tulsa saying there had been a tornado within three blocks of my home.  Tiff and several other friends went over and checked everything out and all was fine.  Thanks for all of the calls checking on me.  Bella was home and was rather traumatized but is doing ok now.

This is just a couple of blocks from my house as well as the following photo.  

This is what is left of Panera Bread.  The streets have been blocked off so it is hard to get a close pic.  Ten buildings have been condemned and they announced this morning that 172 business were affected.

God is good and my home and Bella were not affected at all.

Sunday morning we had reservations at the Chrystal Bridges Art Museum in Bentonville, AR to see the Dale Chuhuly glass exhibit.

Here are some of the highlights from there.

This piece weighs over 5000 lbs and has over 13,000 pieces in it.

He has a huge collection of original Indian blankets.

It was a wonderful exhibit.  If you remember, when we went on the Alaskan cruise, we visited his museum in Seattle.  Unbelievable.

So, that's been my week.  Am getting ready to have all new windows put in my house so am having to move alot of furniture and things around.  Don't think it's going to be a fun thing, but a necessity.

Have a great week.



  1. Judy it's good to hear that all was well at your house. That was a bad tornado! I love the glass exhibits I've seen, so beautiful. What a fun trip.

  2. I was wondering how you faired with the tornado. So glad that Bella and your home are okay. Poor Bella, I bet she was scared to death.

    The glass exhibit is amazing - thanks for sharing. Enjoy the rest of your week.
