Saturday morning I tooled around Springfield exploring in my car, did some shopping for a cell phone battery as my cell phone had given up the ghost. I left my charger at work too, so I wasn't using the phone much. That afternoon I had coffee at the Mudhouse ended up playing M:TG with a new friend. All in all a very enjoyable day.
Yesterday I went to Branson, and I saw the Spirit of the Dance show, which was worth the money but not great, and then went over to the Stone Hill Winery for tasting. I had a tour that concluded in tasted all their stuff, but didn't end up buying anything because it just wasn't the right kind of wine for my tastebuds. I also saw the travelling Vietnam Wall display, as last weekend was a big Vietnam vet celebration at Branson.
The Ozark countryside on the way there is really pretty. Nice hills with rock outcroppings similar to Austin, but different and more rocky and not as much shale type stuff. Somewhere along the way this weekend I also got my PS2 hooked up, and started a bit of Shadow Hearts:Covenant.
