Murdo Girl…The Brick House..The winner is??



As all of you know by now, The Espressofest, which was held yesterday at the Haug Land Field, is over and done with. It was billed as a Brick House fundraiser. The good news is, nobody has to count money. The bad news is, The Haug Land sign that was secured above the West goal post has to come down. Whoever ordered the sign put an extra H in Haug. It was spelled Haugh, which is incorrect. Personally, if someone hadn’t pointed it out to me, I never would have noticed it. Mr. Haugland, however did and proceeded to draw attention to the little gaff. Secondly, the football coach didn’t like the sign on the goal post. He said it would be in the line of vision of the kicker and mess with his concentration. It will go back up on the concession stand when we get one. The funds from the sale of the crowns from the Crown Contest should cover most of it. How much can a little concession stand cost?


That brings us to the Crown Contest. As promised, we are publishing the results. If you think the report was hastily put together, you could be right. Sherri had to draw as fast as her little pencils would go, and I have no idea who wrote the copy. I guess it was Treason. I know there are no interviews of the winner, because Yram had to leave early. It all worked out anyway, because I hear the winner can’t talk.

The following was reported Β to The Murdo Coyote Newspaper:

Below is a random sample of some of the would be Queens modeling their crowns

On the left is Sherri the Photographic Drawer. She even drew her own photograph, which can’t be easy. Sherri is such a dedicated drawer. She even made sure she had all the colors needed to exactly depict each entrant wearing their entry.

In the middle is Kim, who requested her last name not be published. Nevertheless, her red and gold crown is really beautiful and versatile. It fits her hairstyle perfectly, and it will add beauty to any outfit. Except maybe orange. I wouldn’t wear orange if I were you. Thank you Kim.

Next is Pearl, wearing her signature crown that doubles as an ashtray. All she has to do is flick her ashes inside the headpiece which is made of ceramic. She can place her burning cig between the crown spikes, that also function as a cigarette holder. There is room for more than one, but Pearl says if she has too many friends smoking with her, the top of her head gets overheated. Thank you Pearl. I understand you’re new in town. Welcome.



It’s important for The Brick House, otherwise known as The Peoples House, to show we do not discriminate, which is why we forced, excuse me ha, invited Don to bring his somewhat plain, but overwhelming crown. Good luck Don. It’s truly hard to believe the things you can make out of a coffee can and a little spray paint.

A I is the middle crown bearer. I think she looks amazing in her crown that has to be one of a kind. A I pilots the Coyote Administration’s airplane, otherwise known as Air Force Minus One. Just look at her jewel covered earphones. Thank you A I. I think you’ve got a real crack at winning this thing. CAN YOU HEAR ME A I?

The third person is our Next Vice Pres. Lav


Next we have Lav again.

Karen is the one in the middle. She doesn’t want her last name in print either, but she’s a sister to Kim, so maybe that’ll help you identify her. She has a really unique crown made from feathers and gold. That head bling just might bring a bundle at the Crown sale.

Third is some little girl with her cardboard birthday crown. There’s always next year honey. Maybe if you give the judges a piece of cake…


Pico is wearing a filigree crowning glory. Pico is the Person In Charge of Brick House Functions.

TC had a tough time getting something to cover her cheesehead, but this Christmas Crown is just as cheesy.

The one on the right is a relative of Yram’s. Her name is Heidi, but I think she looks like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.


Now we’re getting down to the dregs. Looks like Sherri either ran out of the colors she needed or she was just plain tired.

Tammy forgot her crown, but she’s a sweet kid, so we let her wear her cute little hat.

Two and Three are holdovers from days gone by. Some people just can’t let go of the past. It’s kind of sad.

Anyway, we do have a winner. She was a last minute entrant, because she was just recently born. Her name is Murdo Baby. (Just kidding.)


Congratulations baby girl. There’s your prize cup. Maybe Mamma can figure out a way to make it a sippy cup. Be a good little girl and maybe someday all your dreams will come true. You can always run for Murdo Girl. She’s getting kind of long in the tooth, but if Queen E. can last through every Pres since Truman, so can I. I mean she.


1-Big Crown
Ten gallon crowns are in.

    Maybe Yram can interview her and not get a restraining order slapped on her.

    I am woman enough to admit when I have been overwhelmingly beat!! Although, you did make Pico look surprisingly pretty good in her crown!! ( Can I keep it? )
    Hooray and long live the Queen of the crown contest, she is precious!!

    They’re right when they say don’t work with children or animals. You get upstaged every time. The crown contest is no exception. At least I entered, sort of. Nice conclusion to the contest Murdo Girl. I was wondering who was going to win. I thought NoNo might be a contender. I’all plan better next year.
