Birthdays, cancellations and car sickness….Branson! (Part-two)

The highlight of Saturday was a trip to Sight and Sound Theater to see Samson.

The program describes it as a full encounter of Samson’s story, experienced first hand, close to the action, and immersed in it. You feel as if you were actually there witnessing the events as they take place from the very beginning until the last column falls. It’s a story direct from the Bible about a God who makes the impossible…possible.

Three Girls Travel highly recommends any of the productions by the Sight and Sound Theaters. It is a must see when traveling to Branson.

Birthdays, cancellations, and car sickness….Branson!

On our way for a weekend trip to Branson, Missouri.

We ate some very good food at:

Mel’s Hard Luck Diner, the home of singing servers.

Famous Dave’s BBQ at The Landing for a birthday celebration for #3 (Cathy)

Cracker Barrel, home of the fabulous breakfast food.

Pasghetti’s Italian, home of the big meatball.

Hurt’s Donuts.

Travel insurance…yes or no?

Travel insurance is something that no one thinks they need….until you do. We learned this for the first time this spring when our trip plans to travel to Philadelphia were put on hold.

One of our threegirlstravel had unexpected surgery which required us to cancel our trip to Philly and that’s when we learned that travel insurance might have been a good thing. The unexpected happened past the date of our grace period for cancellation with a full refund. With travel insurance of $79.00 at the time of booking we could have avoided a costly lesson. We have since learned some credit cards cover unexpected cancellations but not everyone has those particular cards. Airlines generally are more forgiving and allow a credit for future trips so it is not a total loss. But the one thing threegirlstravel learned from this is the small fee for travel insurance when needed is worth every cent you pay.

In our two years of adventures threegirlstravel has learned a lot about blogging, booking, reading fine print on contracts and now the importance of travel insurance. So, these three girls will leave the headaches behind and always carry travel insurance.

Happy travels….

Sisters go to “Sister Act”

Saturday night Threegirlstravel and Three Girls Daughters enjoyed an evening of dining and live theater at Murry’s Dinner Playhouse to see “Sister Act.” It was a fun show with lots music, laughs and good food. It’s always fun to get out together but especially fun this night because our travel partner Lee has been out of commission for a while, and then had surgery. But she’s back…..

We enjoyed our time with our girls as well.

Our first attempt at a cooking vlog….

The video on our YouTube channel will speak for itself. We are very new at this and there is some unexpected comedy and you can tell we are definitely from the south! We really enjoyed ourselves, the food was great and we had a lot of fun doing it.

Thanks to Morgan Langley (Deb’s youngest) for editing our video.

A wonderful night of reminiscing our youth.

Three Girls Travel minus one makes for a sad time for the other two. We missed Lee very much for this outing which was to be a triple date with our husbands to go to the Bonnie Raitt and James Taylor concert. We had the tickets so Debbie, Claire, Cathy and Chuck represented Three Girls Travel. Hoping Lee gets better really soon.

The evening began with Cathy, Chuck and Claire picking Deb up at work. Chuck drove us to Longhorn Steak House. The meal was wonderful but we were still missing our third girl!

After dinner we headed over the Verizon Arena for the concert. We found our seats and waited on the show. We put Chuck in charge of a group picture.

Bonnie Raitt was first and James Taylor actually came out to introduced her. His introduction was of an “entertainer extraordinaire” and “funky as a dead dog on the pavement in 105 degree weather.” She was indeed the entertainer! She was sent to get the crowd ready for James but she is a concert in and of herself. Fabulous!!

Then for the main attraction, James Taylor, the man that sang so many of our teenage and young adult life favorites on the radio and for whom many, many numbers of girls in the 70’s had crushes (we may have been some of those) was live, in front of us, singing those very songs as well as some new ones. His level of entertainment does not come around very often. His banter with the people in his band and the people in the audience is astounding.

He sang song after song and told stories about some which gave us a new love for them. We found that the song “Sweet Baby James” was written for his baby nephew who was named after him. He wrote the song on his way to visit him for the very first time. It was a very touching story and makes the song even more special.

As the night came to an end, after James singing for over two hours including four encores, we felt satisfied that we had heard all of our favorites. We missed Lee terribly and wished she could have been with us. James Taylor is a class act. If he ever comes close again, you better believe that Three Girls Travel will be sitting in the audience singing along.

You just call out my name

And you know wherever I am

I’ll come running, to see you again

Winter, spring, summer or fall

All you have to do is call

And I’ll be there…..You’ve got a friend.
