Work and life has been kind of stressful lately.  I took a couple hours this afternoon and went on a hike.  It must have been EXACTLY what I needed because my shopping results were quite shocking.


43% Paul
29% Dale
29% Jasper
25% Riley
13% Flynn




Crazy that I only got 13% Flynn as I am not a shopper!  


Peace to you all as you brave the stores for any shopping!

Hmmm. Last time I tried this is was heavily Dale at 71%. I must have grown into my Top-pants in the interim. Wink

How cold is it in Branson at Christmas? I'm hitting Andy's Frozen Custard Shop if it kills me.

The weather is very fickle there.  It can be below freezing or it can be in the 60’s. (15˚ C).  You just take your chances.  But I have to say that when it snows, it’s just a beautiful sight.


Andy’s is a big deal.  You’d think that they’d go out of business during the winter, but the lines are almost as long as a hot summer day!


Peace!

Trivia #3 - hard candies.  Riley tells Dale what kind of candy each of the family members like when they visit the candy shop in Handbags at Dawn.

1. Which men do you associate with Salkantay? As it's in Peru, I'm guessing Jake & Tom. Very Happy

The falls are about 5 miles from the ranch.  Riley tells Dale that in FCR.  Dale takes off alone after Flynn is injured.  Riley later asks where Dale went.  Dale tells him he went to the falls, and Riley says that's about 5 miles.

I had to look it up, Cat.  I suspected Tom and Jake, but thought there might be others involved.

I'd like to know how far the lake, the hot springs, and Three Traders are from the ranch.  The cairn is about four miles from the house, the falls are five.  Any ideas about the others?

I am strongly a Jasper Christmas shopper this year Very Happy


edit: I just looked at the thread and apparently last year I was also a Jasper kind of Christmas shopper—who knew? It’s funny, I keep expecting to be a Riley, but I guess I’ve got some Toppishness in me when it comes to shopping Hysterics

I think, Dells, like Jasper, and me, you would rather disappear than spend your time among the crowds shopping. Laughing

I do love online shopping, especially at busy times like Christmas and school holidays, but I also must admit that I love to browse around my local shopping centre during the less busy times. Then of course, I need a cup of tea, or a hot chocolate, with a pastry, to recuperate. Smile
