Blowing the Cobwebs Out in Branson, September 30, 2015
From there, I drove to Branson, and holed up in the hotel for a few hours to catch up on email. But as I was working, I kept looking out the window to the Branson Landing development along the waterfront of Lake Taneycomo. There was a zip line going across the lake, and every so often, I would see people whizzing out over the water and back. It looked like scary good fun.
When I finally finished my laptop session, I went out for a walk (after all, it is Movement Challenge month at APPA!), and lo and behold, found myself at the take off point. Having been a cautious and deliberate type for so many years (guess it is the lawyer in me), acting on impulse does not come naturally. But after about 3 seconds of internal debate, I thought "what the !@#$, that looks like fun" and before you know it, I was strapped in the chair with one of their employees and off we went for three rides over the lake. Woo wee! It certainly blew the cobwebs out of my brain — which I really needed. Thank you Parakeet Pete's for taking me out of my comfort zone and giving me a much needed adrenaline boost.
