Murdo Girl…The Inaugracoronation

This is a rerun of a Brick House favorite. MG is being crowned Next Pres and Lav is Vice Next Pres. They prefer crowns hence the combination inauguration and coronation. The Brick House is the old high school and Murdo’s answer to the White House. What a bunch of misfits.


It’s all hands on deck for team Coyote at the Harold Thune Auditorium. Murdo Girl will be Inaugracorinated as Next Pres tonight. As of yet, it is still unclear as to how much of the good old US of A will be under her rule? Oh well, no use getting bogged down in the

As we join our motley team, they are completing the finishing touches to the preparation of the Auditorium. Tonight is the culmination of months and months of hard work towards this remarkably magical moment. Murdo Girl will be under oath when she says, I do from this day forward. She will then be crowned as a symbol of her commitment to decorum. Next, Lav will be crowned as Next VP, which is mind-boggling in and of itself. I still don’t get how that happened..Murdo Girl will give her inaugracorination address. Then finally, we will Dance!!

Murdo Girl’s Address

As I look around at the amazing crepe paper decorations and the festive butcher paper taped to the bleachers, I…well.. there are no words. Sherri..I recognize your handiwork. It must have taken you the better part of an hour to draw all those photographs.

I would also like to give a shout-out to Pico for her commitment to providing safe food for the pre-inaugracorination, dinner. We had a little problem with tainted steaks, so Pico and DM snagged us some free Subway from over at the truck stop. I think those kiddie meals were pretty filling and I’m sure the little box of colors will be put to good use when we make our Christmas Cards.

TC has cried all day, and is an emotional wreck. She is overwhelmed by the response Jerry got for donations to buy her a new cheesehead. Of course it was hard to be within 30 feet of her old one. Jerry also found out Super Value has a bean counter machine. You just throw your beans in and it spits out quarters. Of course it does take a percentage out of the proceeds, but a quarter is a quarter. Even one quarter is a quarter more than we had before.

Jerry and Lav both took one for the team last week by making a contribution of all their hard earned beans. They realized that when you have a lot of beans, relatives start showing up and all of a sudden everyone is your friend. Unfortunately, some of the beans were rotten. That’s what happens when you hoard your beans and they don’t get circulated.

A I is going to be a little late tonight. She got a moonlighting job spying. I have no idea who she’s spying on, but she really needs to get her money’s worth out of all those spy gadgets she bought. I think people are kind of catching on to her methods. I mean, if someone is wearing a Dick Tracy decoder ring, plastic gloves, carries tape that says, “caution, crime scene,” and tells everyone to speak into her watch, it’s kind of a giveaway. I just don’t think most people are going to tell her much… but that’s just me.

Treason is preparing to be the disc jockey for the dance tonight. She loves music. Were you able to borrow a record player Treason? Good deal. We’ll get started here in just a few. I think Carol is going to help you with the karaoke machine.

Yram ran over to pick up Barnella, so they’ll both be here soon. We invited all the faculty, but we forgot to say RSVP so we don’t know how many are coming. We will have free water available from one of the Murdo Girl Towers, and Lav said she would check on the lemons at Sanderson’s Store.

As your new Next Pres, I will fight the good fight and keep my commitments. My promise to you is, “Ask me no questions, and I will tell you no lies.” I’m pretty sure I can keep that one. You can take it to the bank.

Oh, I almost forgot to give you my address. It’s: The Brick House, 555 Coyote Way, Murdo, SD 57559. Please drop us a line. We would love to hear about your Mom and them.


The Recycled Inaugracorination Gowns everyone has been waiting to see.


Next VP will be wearing a beautiful gown made from shopping bags, she went for her favorite red and white. NVP Lav is wearing a designer gown made from recycled paper cups. She will be serving coffee at intermission.


Since her name is rather Christmas like, Carol chose a gown that will later be recycled as the Brick House Christmas tree. We tried to find a turkey dress for Thanksgiving, but no luck.Sherri our PD (Photographic Drawer),chose a gown made from recycled paper for obvious reasons. I can’t wait to see her photographic drawings of the dance. Love the shoes Sherri.


Blue Cellophane was A I’s choice..I’m sure she will find a good spy use for it later; like to cover a lifeless body. TC (Town Crier chose tinfoil, because if it gets hot at the dance and her cheese gets a little rancid, she can just pull off a piece of foil and wrap it up.


Treason liked the idea of a garbage bag dress. You know how she likes to clean up after everybody. This doesn’t show the extra garbage bag worn as a wrap. She will follow Lav around and pick up empty coffee cups without having to trash her dress. Barnella will be dressed in toilet paper. She sniffs all the time, so some 2 ply squares might come in handy. She’ll also have a shower curtain cape. We wanted her to be covered up as much as possible, because there’s really no hope of any kind of beauty to shine through.


Yram will be dressed in a road map frock. It will help her find the way to all her crack up reporter interviews. Pico will look lovely in her gown of plant leaves. She even found some tomato earrings. If anyone craves a salad later, I’m sure she’ll oblige. The only downside to the gown is that it has to be watered every 20 minutes. There’s a sign-up sheet in the men’s room.


And of course…The Queen is still wearing the Rose Garden Room drapes.

I just want to remind the ladies it is a BYOC  (Bring Your Own Crown) Event.


Bart, Smart, and Braveheart will be bouncing all riff raff out the door

    Several gentlemen have said they signed up to water my very lovely gown in the men’s room, I don’t want to wilt, but I’ll just have DM do it. I don’t let just anybody water me, you know! I think we are going to be exceptionally trend setting ladies, the likes of which Murdo has never seen before!

        You had a busy night 07. Goats, watering…don’t overdo it.

        Goats. What goats. Uh oh! I forgot all about the goats. They are still in the locker room. Wonder if there is any football gear left.

      Woops! Did you give away all your paper cups? I didn’t think it through. Where’s Treason? OMG we’re all falling apart! It’s only my first day, and everyone already has my address!!

        Could it be you’ve had too much mocha 07? I was hoping to have one night off before I start my new job. Round them up and put them in the coatroom.

        It was the back door I accidentally let them in. They luckily went down in the boys locker room. I closed the door on them. I only know how to herd cattle. I don’t know anything about goats. I’ll find someone who does. Hope the paparazzi don’t get wind of this. It might mean my job.

    I noticed this here ball is all about the dresses. I’ll have you know I searched in the old school in Okaton and found a bunch of those old gunnysacks we used in our sack races. I’m gonna conjure up my DM tux out of those. I can’t remember if that material is itchy or not.


    • Mary Francis McNinch September 7, 2016 / 8:14 pm

      Murdo Girl won several Rally Day sack races, but that was in the olden days. You’ll have to wear the sack to church’s almost intermission.

    Hilarious with an uppercase H! Those dresses are perfectly fitted to each personality and politically correct not to mention environmentally sensitive! I am ready to rock out.

      If there are a lot of coffee drinkers you can always fall back on another tumbleweed.

        The wind really blows this time of year so you never know. The wind might cause Barnella and Yram problems though.

    How funny is this! The garments all fit the character; how clever. If the dress fits you must acquit. I am positive there are no Fashion Police in Murdo tonight. The Murdo Coyote will be full of glamour in tomorrow’s addition. It will be a Collector’s Edition and cost extra beans. Wonderful job Murdo Girl.

        The paparazzi will be there. This is the event of the year. Plus the high fashion will look good in the media. I sure hope A I drinks her Ovaltine!!! Pico is going to have to remember her waterproof mascara!!
