It’s October & Fall is in the air!
This is my favorite season for so many reasons… This is my 36th year that I’ve worked at Silver Dollar City & we’re enjoying their ‘National Harvest & Cowboy Festival’. Crafter all over the 60 acre 1800’s theme park plus, make it a point to stop by & say “Howdy!” to Violet Hensley the fiddle maker, in her 50th anniversary in this festival! She’ll turn 99 years young on Oct. 20th!
Buck Taylor of TV’s ‘Gun Smoke’ fame is here also signing photos from his career & selling his incredible artwork! Here I am as ‘Colonel Paisley Alowishus Parnell’ the banker with Buck!
I am busier now more than ever in my 36 years in Branson! I have 8 jobs! I play 5 characters a day at Silver Dollar City.
‘W. P. Warburton’ the prison warden
Ickibod ‘Icky’ the scarecrow
‘Colonel Paisley Parnell’
‘Mr. M. Balmer’ SDC’s undertaker
‘Doc Harris’ – genius!
Then I run down to Big Cedar Lodge & portray ‘Deputy Birdy Tweedle’ in my hour-long wagon rise 5:30-6:30

Then make a mad dash back into Branson & play ‘Ollie’ or ‘Doc’ in the Shepherd of the Hills play!
