Anxiously Awaiting ~ April!

04.01.20

Anxiously awaiting is right!  The current status of the world is waiting to see when things will be back to “normal“.  Branson, MO was getting ready for the 2020 season & then boom, like everywhere COVID 19!  time will tell, but the great thing is we are ALL in this together & are learning about ourselves, priorities, perseverance, patience, etc…  

This is how we ALL feel! LOL!

This is how we ALL feel! LOL!

We are all laughing at the nonsense & irrational behavior of some people & their hoarding habits, most if us are mesmerized by ‘Tiger King’!  Again, laughter is the key to life itself!

Humor helps us ALL!

Once we do return to our lives again, & we will, here’s where I will be for the 2020 season here in Branson, MO & the surrounding area!  Make very second count!

We open Silver Dollar City up in May ~ Our 60th Anniversary with BIG plans to celebrate that ALL year long!  I’ll be there… ALL season long in my 41st year!  Of course, you know me, “Branson’s busiest comedian…” I’ll be everywhere!

Dec. 7th, 1990 ~ Jan. 11th, 2020

On Sat., Jan. 11th, 2020, at 10:30 PM our oldest son, Austin Cole Sanders, died in a 1 car accident.  He fell asleep while driving home on S. Hwy. 65 between Springfield, MO. & Branson, MO..  Austin was 29 years old.

Austin was a true source of joy, the hardest working young man we’ve ever known multitasking 4 jobs, he was passionate about all aspects of life, but his true passion were his 2 fur babies ‘Krypto’ & ‘Danver’ & his music!  Austin also had 2 diverse bands, ‘Snake Fighter’ & ‘Venus of Willendorf’!

Sat., Jan. 18th, 2o2o we held a ‘Celebration of the Life of Austin’ at the Clay Cooper Theatre that was attended by over 1,200 friends, fans, & his loving family!

43025421-CB43-453E-A502-A2AD6C80D31C

He is missed every day & we are trying our best to work our way through this new life/journey without him.  He leaves behind his amazing brother, Evan James Sanders, his mother Dede Sanders, & I, his father, plus all our family & a host of family-like friends, & ‘Krypto’ & ‘Danver’!
