Murdo Girl…Murdo matters

Murdo Matters is a new organization in town. It’s very new so you probably haven’t heard about it yet. In fact, I just thought of it 30 seconds ago. I’m already writing about it and I have absolutely no idea what it is, so I guess we’ll all find out about it together. Whatever it turns out to be, I hope it’s good because I really like the sound of it. Murdo Matters.


Murdo Girl is in her second week of being Next Pres. Lav is VPNPE. Then there’s the Queen who has been hanging out with us in Murdo. I think she needed a break from her extremely needy family who thinks they should be treated like Royalty. I mean give me a break, $250 for a sweater for George? That could have gone a  long way toward paying the light bill at Kensington Palace. She told us she started out as a mechanic in WWII. She knows the value of an elbe. What? Ib.. Short for it!

What’s a Queen Mother to do? (Sigh)

Murdo does things differently than the rest of the world. That’s why Next Pres has decided to drop some of the long titles, unless it’s in your name like Queen Elizabeth. Treason is going to get with The Coyote and they will be publishing a list of the cabinetry . Eliteism will not be tolerated, however, the cabinet will have a “Top Shelf.”

We will show the world that Murdo Matters, and we will live in whatever decade we choose to. We might even mix it up a little. Our story has evolved. We keep the people and things of the past that bring up good nostalgic memories. We also incorporate things and people that are in today’s world. If I’ve confused you, I’m sure you’re not surprised.

Now that Murdo Girl is officially Next Pres, we need to decide where she should live and conduct her stuff. How about the old High School? It’s got everything we need but a kitchen, and a shower. It’s close to the auditorium and even has a gym. Until we get someone to put a shower in, she can  go to the truck stop. They have nice showers there, and you can even call ahead and reserve. It’s also just a short walk from the high school I mean The Brick House. We can put a hot plate in the chemistry room. Hopefully we can get the smell of formaldehyde out of there. I think there’s a little fridge in there too. We’ll just have to make sure all the frogs are out of it and put a box of baking soda inside.


I think it’s time to have our first Murdo Matters Meeting. It will be at The Brick House. (We can’t call it the White House because it’s brownish brick.) The date will be?? What do you think. The sooner the better right? At 9:00 a.m. sharp.

Murdo Girl is already there. She spent the night on a cot in the library. It’s right across the hall from the Chemistry lab, where the coffee pot is. Already back from a brisk shower at the truck stop, she’s ready to hit the ground running.

The meeting is being held in the gym because the Superintendents Office won’t hold all the people.

The transition staff is arriving

Jerry, Treason, Carol, The town Crier, A I, and Yram  are walking up the steps. Bart, Smart, and Braveheart, the bodyguards, are stationed outside. They’re just there in the unlikely event that a crowd gathers. That doesn’t sound like a very good reason, but we’ll figure out another way they can be useful later.

Where are the Queen and Lav? We kind of need the NVP, but we can clue her in later, since we always have to tell her everything twice anyway. The C  and the CC of the CCC aren’t here, but they will be discussed at the meeting. Since we no longer need a Chair and Co-Chair of the Coyote County Convention, they will be considered for other positions.

The assembly is happening in the downstair’s gym.

Murdo Girl: THANK YOU, THank you, Thank you. Woah..This gym has an echo, guess I won’t use the mic. Thank you for coming to The Brick House, the home of the people. Yes, The town of Murdo now has it’s very own Next Pres, and when the rest of the country sees how we run things, I’m sure all the other 49  states will fall into lock step with us.

In the interest of time, I will get right to today’s order of business.

  1. We need a good lawyer. We’re going to advertise all the available positions in the Murdo Coyote so the townspeople can give us their input. In the meantime, my cousin Blake Haverberg, who has everyone in the family beat in the way of accomplishments, has agreed to help us out. He lives in Deadwood. I’d really like to have a local attorney.
  2. We need a doctor, a PA, or a nurse on our Murdo Matters team.
  3. A Press Secretary..I’m thinking Treason can fill that position
  4. A spy..A I.. It goes without saying you have the credentials
  5. A speech writer..No one comes to mind.
  6. A publicist, Yram?
  7. A PICOBHF..Person in charge of Brick House functions, like town dinners (C of the CC?)
  8. A Queen..Queen E
  9. Defense moniter..(The CC of the CCC?)
  10. Someone to write up the minutes
  11. Someone to sing the Murdo Matters song at the beginning of each meeting..Carol’s got it!
  12. Someone to write the song that the whole town will sing..?

Other positions will be announced and discussed at our next State of the Town MM meeting.

Lets not overdo it on our first day. I am on fire Murdo! We’ve got it going on!! Give me an MM!!!



Will the minutes please note that the scribe of this story was having Internet problems and was unable to perform her magic in the way of photos and other things. Sometimes a Murdo Girl’s gotta do what a Murdo Girl’s gotta do.

    I love the makeovers, reinventions and assignments. The mockery of people and ideals get me pretty hyped. Seems there is an impending utopia.

    You do know that the old high school was pulled down, right? You may have to make do with the old Masonic Lodge. I think it still stands.

        I’m up to the task MG! I’ll get the photographic drawer to redraw the hill where the house sits and to make it look like a grassy hill. It’s called stealth drawing!! I’ll have the package on your desk for approval by 0600 tomorrow.

        Good plan. I’ll start calling you Scoper. You aren’t still looking for a second shooter are you?

        You’ve been talking to Yram? I told her I was looking for another shouter. I’m setting up a civil defense system. I figured you wanted to go green. You don’t still have your old megaphone from cheerleader days do you?

        Careful Scoper, the megaphone was before my time. Green is after my time, but I can shout with the best of them..I’m all in.

    What a great idea! Murdo does Matter. Maybe if you tell Lav again when and where she should be, she’ll show up at the Brown House, I mean Brick House. Gotta tell her at least two times.

    Thank you for the appointment, MG! I promise to take my duties as the person in charge of the Brick House functions. Soon I will check into what is done at Blair House and the White House and apply the etiquette rules properly, or not. 🙂
