Murdo Girl…Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweed

I’m out of pocket today, so I’m posting this for a couple of friends who were reminiscing about Lav the tumbleweed.

Our favorite photographic landscape drawer, Dianna thought she saw Lav today wearing her favorite disguise , the tumbling tumbleweed. There is a little bit of folklore associated with a tumbling tumbleweed. (How long do folks have to lore before you can call it folklore?)

Anyway, Karen Lindquist told me she once saw a Volkswagen pull into Her Dad’s…. Dean’s Philip 66 Station in Murdo, SD. She said the tourist had the biggest tumbleweed she had ever seen strapped to the top of the car. Lav has been seen driving a car like this.



The Saga…….

Dianna: This is her right?

(I don’t know..her legs look too skinny.)

See her tumbling down,
Pledging her love to the ground!
Lonely, but free, she’ll be found,
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

She was drifting along with some of her tumbleweed friends

(Sounds about right.)

(This is not looking good. I recognize that fence post. It’s one of Lav’s favorite hangouts.)

(She got caught up there didn’t she. That had to hurt!)

Cares of her past are behind,
Nowhere to go, but she’ll find,
Just where the trail will wind,
Drifting along with the tumblin’ tumbleweeds

(Where are her legs? I don’t see her legs)

Dianna: Who photo bombed my folklore?

She’ll keep rolling along,
Deep in her heart is a song,
Here on the range she belongs,
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

Tumbleweeds, tumbleweeds!

(I think the record is stuck.)

See her tumbling down,
Pledging her love to the ground!
Lonely, but free, she’ll be found,
Drifting along with the tumblin’ tumbleweeds

    I’m still cracking up about the underwear story. The tumble weed is a great encore. I need a Kleenex.

      The underwear story was quite the hit Bobby. I always love your comments. I had nothing for last night, then a friend sent me the tumbleweed pictures and look what happened. I hope all is well with you!

    Good song. I used to have a love/hate relationship with the tumblin’ tumbleweed. They were always cute as they moseyed along. They would scare the dickings out of me when driving at night in a strong wind. They would amass in the barbed wire fence as you pictured. Only there would be 20 or so. And the winter snow would pack in with the stuck tumbleweeds. The weight would be too much and the barbed wire would break. The fence would have to be repaired or the cattle would get out. Having the huge one tied on top of the car is a funny story. Anyway, Good song MG!!
