There was a separate display depicting each of the 12 days.

(Ron Writing) We had beautiful weather again; a great day for getting some work done at home. Elena did the laundry and some cleaning while John and I put the “belly pan” back on the fresh water tank compartment. It’s all dried out and reassembled stronger than when new. After doing a detailed inspection of how this compartment is built, I found several places where water might be getting into the compartment when driving on wet highways. I decided to wait until we get parked for a few weeks this winter to do a complete fix of the problem. I plan to remove the belly pan again and carefully seal the entire compartment. It looks like a bigger job than I care to tackle here.

This evening we (John and Elena & I) went to the opening performance of Shoji Tabuchi’s Christmas Show. Tabuchi is one of the most popular performers in Branson. Shoji is an exceptionally good violin player, is originally from Japan, has been here over 20 years, and has his own beautiful 2,000 seat theater.

The show was outstanding! The production, choreography, music, dancing, and many beautiful costumes and sets were fantastic. All three of us agreed that this was by far the best live show we’ve seen. Two hours of great entertainment!

People mentioned that Tabuchi's restrooms are a must-see! Indeed it is. Elena spent time taking pictures in the women's restrooms and commented how beautiful it is but was disappointed that there were no automatic flush toilets. She was comparing it to the restrooms at the Crystal Cathedral, our home church. Can't have everything, I guess!

Not far from Tabuchi’s theater is the drive-through “Festival of Lights”. We drove for perhaps a mile or two along a road that has Christmas displays on both sides. Many of these displays are very large and many of them have an “animated effect” using sequenced lights. A nice way to wrap up our evening out.
