This afternoon I saw more bald heads, gray hair and hearing aids in one place than I've seen for a long time - we went to a show called "Hank Revisited," an excellent impersonator of Hank Williams, Sr. The young man that did the show (Tim Hadler) was absolutely fantastic, along with his band that consisted of a steel guitar, fiddle and bass player. You would have thought you were staring at Hank, Sr. and you were for sure hearing him live. He and his band entertained us for 2 and a half hours. But then you have to be of a certain "age group" just to remember who Hank Sr. is. He far surpassed the Patsy Cline show we went to yesterday.
Branson is so full of very talented people just looking for a break. There are street musicians all over, playing on the corners with the instrument cases open hoping to collect tips but more so hoping to get discovered. It's incredible. Tim Hadler has been to Nashville and played at the Grand Ole Opry, so he's at least got his foot in the door.
Well, to every good time there comes an end. Tomorrow we head north - back to Minnesota. Hopefully Minnesota has decided to let spring arrive and will show us some warmer temperatures and a bit of sunshine.
