General Silver Dollar City Talk / Sarsaparilla gone???
« on: March 27, 2017, 12:04:46 PM »
Hubs and I took the lake hike over to the Belle and went into the gift shop for our usual Sarsaparilla.  It's gone! They no longer sell it! Sales clerk pointed to the root beer in the cooler and offered me one. It's not the same thing!  Then...I started thinking about the Coke signs all over the City.  Are they no longer selling it because of a contract with Coke?  Anyone see Sarsaparilla at the City?  This could be devastating....   :-[

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Season Pass
« on: January 14, 2017, 02:35:04 PM »
You may already know there's a magazine subscription that comes free (?) with your season pass, right?  If you don't want it, you're directed to request a refund of $6 by mailing in the enclosed postcard.  If you ordered multiple passes, did you get a postcard for each pass?  When ordering multiple passes, one set of coupons is enclosed with the packet.  If passes are ordered separately, will I get the coupons with each pass, or is it based on mailing address?  We always use the 25% coupons.  It seems only fair to have multiple coupons if I'm buying multiple passes. What do you think?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / SDC Blacksmith
« on: November 15, 2016, 08:06:43 AM »
I just read on Facebook that Wayne Rice, SDC blacksmith, had a stroke and is in ICU at Mercy Hospital.  The Hubs and I always make time to speak to Wayne. He's an interesting guy and always wears a red shirt.  If you know Wayne, please keep us updated on his progress.  Wayne, get well soon! We love you!

Just read that Pure Heart isn't going to be at the City any longer.   Why is that?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / SDC Guilds
« on: July 08, 2016, 08:34:40 PM »
At one time, SDC had a quilt guild that used to show at the National show in Paducah, KY.  I haven't seen them in years. Do you know if they still have any active guilds?  Such as blacksmithing, wood carving, furniture making, etc?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / A SDC Junior Dugan
« on: January 14, 2016, 04:25:46 PM »
Junior, Did you know or work with Karl Allan?  I just read that he was a Junior, and he recently passed away.  I think he may have been about the same age as you.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Black Friday
« on: November 03, 2015, 04:20:16 PM »
For those of you who have received the latest Times, was there any mention of Black Friday? It usually opens at 8:00 a.m., but I haven't heard anything about it this year.  Is it happening?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Glass blowers
« on: December 01, 2014, 08:55:05 PM »
Has anyone noticed the missing glass balls where the glass blowers work?  Remember the groups of amber colored glass balls across the top of the area near the ceiling? I noticed them missing as soon as I walked in.  Did they fall?  Are they a hazard?  Hubs thought perhaps OSHA made them remove them.  He noticed lots of new barriers, especially in the loading area in front of the wreath, and the posts were painted caution yellow at the bottom. 

Random Talk / Where's Junior?

Junior!  Where are you?  I miss your comments. Are you okay?

Branson Talk / Janet Dailey
« on: December 16, 2013, 05:11:15 PM »
I read today that Janet Dailey, the author, died.  KY3 mentioned she lived in Branson, but I thought she lived in Hollister.  I know that if you take a ride on the paddleboat her house is pointed out by the captain on the banks of Taneycomo.

« on: November 22, 2013, 02:56:19 PM »
Does anyone know the manufacturer of SDC's taffy?  I need to find out if its gluten free before I set in my winter supply.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Running to the Lights 5K
« on: November 08, 2013, 09:38:33 AM »
Hey! I've been sprung from the slammer (aka rehab center) a month earlier than expected thanks to the good ol' insurance co. that decided I was fit enough to be on my own and won't pay for further rehab.   :D  I convinced the hubs that I could make the trip to Branson, but after two days at home I have to admit he was right - I'm not ready for traveling!  I did tell Home Healthcare that I would be out of town a couple days for a race, and the response was, "You wanna do WHAT???"  At least I had a chance to laugh!  ;D

A shout out to Cinda @ Running to the Lights who is mailing my race packet to me so that I can at least have my t-shirt!   What a great organization!  If you are going, please post pics.  This will be the first year that I have missed the race. *sadness*  I will be at home sitting in my wheelchair waiting for pics! (Are you feeling sorry for me yet?)  ;D
