The Greg Brady Project

Welcome to the official Barry Williams' blog

My friends call me Barry. From time to time I also hear the name Greg. Yeah, as in Greg Brady. The Brady Bunch represents a fun time in my life. But it’s only part of the story. There’s more to say and that’s what The Greg Brady Project is all about – a place to say it. So, I’ve invited some friends to join me and share their perspectives on the Brady’s, the 70′s and just about everything else. Now, I’m inviting you…

Saturday Mornings . . . .

written by Barry Williams in Blog | 1 comment

My Saturday mornings in the Ozarks have been spectacular. Last week was the invigorating 5k run. This morning, I watched the sunrise from 200 feet up in a hot air balloon. The occasion was the 2nd Annual Balloons over Branson Creek, Hot Air Balloon Festival.

Since the weather here in Branson has officially turned to fall, I literally had a birds eye view of the Ozark trees and their colorful leaves. The balloon I was riding is named Hocus Pocus and piloted/owned by Tony Goodnow of Topeka, Kansas. This was more than just a ride, this time in addition to being able to enjoy the quiet dance of sailing on the air, I became pilot in command keeping us aloft and I also got to land. Thank goodness for 2 mph winds! We launched from just below Murder Rock Golf Course at Branson Creek, flying across the road and landing in a clearing. Along the way, we stopped off to touch the tops of trees, get a souvenir evergreen sprig and some “helicopters” from a maple tree. I never did any thing like this in LA.

It was interesting to see the entire process from the beginning. From filling the balloons with air, to deflating them at the landing point. The whole crew was great. Sunshine Day.
