Wine tasting, Jim Bob’s and a Casino.

Today our adventure started when Mike, Leslie, John and I rode in to Carthage to attend the wine tasting at the White Rose B&B and Winery. Upon entering the wine tasting area you purchased a White Rose wine glass for $5.00 then proceeded to each tasting table. We stopped at the first table and everyone sampled a different kind. These were so awful we poured them out. The other three weren’t much better. I did find one that I liked enough to purchase a bottle. It was called Irish Raindrops from the Keltoi Winery. Before leaving the grounds of the winery we noticed several large trees which had leaves changing colors….just what we were looking for to photograph.


This is a picture of the wine tasting area on the grounds of the winery.

By the time we left the wine tasting it was time to go in search of lunch. We ended up in Joplin, MO at a placed called Jim Bob’s Steak and Ribs. Mike and Leslie chose the BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, John had the chef salad and I had a large baked potato with steamed vegetables. The food and service were great.

Our last stop was the Downstream Casino in Quapaw, OK.

Once inside we got our player’s cards and played for a while. John and I both lost the money we played on. Leslie had a little luck with hers. Mike did pretty well. He played the slots for a while then moved on to the Black Jack tables where Lady Luck seemed to be on his side. Good for Mike.

Around 8:30 p.m. we headed back to the campground and had some roast beef sandwiches for dinner. Of course we couldn’t call it a night without playing a round of 10 Penny. John was the winner tonight.

Tomorrow will be a travel day for us. Destination….Branson, MO.

Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
