Murdo Girl…It takes 2

1-Boarded up memories

Well, the preparations to film the next blockbuster movie are underway. It sure is a good thing the Cowboy has a lot of cash. This cast and crew have never had a single one of their projects funded before, so they might kind of like the life of a star.

Meet the Cowboy…he rode into town on a Harley, named Wayne. Cowboy is his own man…kind of the John Wayne type, which is probably why he named his motorcycle Wayne. He’s a quiet guy, but when he speaks everybody listens. Just the other day he said, “Hi,” to me, and I’ve never forgotten it.


Today, we’re on location at the newly remodeled (on the inside) mansion belonging to the newly rich guy who calls himself, Cowboy. The name of the movie is Take 2, and it’s about two female country veterinarians. One of them specializes in large animals like cows and horses, and the other one takes care of all the little critters. Meet Dr. Longhorn in the purple gown, and Dr. Howliday in the shimmering red number. Wait!

Director: “Hey assistant!!!  Tell wardrobe to get some white doctor’s coats for the vets so this can be a little bit believable and girls…lose the crowns!!!…. Now where was I?”


Oh, yes…Lucky is played by Soo’-TAH who was played by Arf. He’s already kind of famous. You might remember him in the well known Dakota’s story. Lav and MG got to be the two main stars because they showed up with Lucky. So far he’s the only animal we’ve got. “Hey assistant!!! get some big animals and small critters in here for Sherri to audition. They don’t even need to be sick looking!! That’s what we’ve got makeup people for!!

Assistant: We don’t have any wardrobe or makeup people yet Mr. Director, sir. My sister is really good with eye-makeup, should I call her?

I’m the assistant..I like to assist and feed people cake.


Director person: Wait! I see a vehicle coming down the road and it’s kicking up dust. Is that Dr. Longhorn’s dog Nincompoop? Look she’s got some longhorns for Dr. Longhorn. What’s that other thing?



Dr. Longhorn: Ninny!!! You brought me longhorn cows…and Dr. Howliday her stuffed bear,  Odrum (Murdo backwards). Maybe we can get some sleep now. Did you bring my favorite pillow?

The Director: No  “ACTION “ for a minute, I’m going to get my bull horn.

And this is me with all of my assistants, makeup, and wardrobe people. I’m in Yellow.


Sorry folks…there seems to be a few kinks to work out. What next!

wp-1499562776797.jpgHi my name is Rufferalla…They keep me in the basement of the newly remodeled on the inside mansion. I’d better get kicked upstairs real quick like or I’m going to bark to all of the newspaper boys and mailmen that come around here. HaBARK! HaBark! HaBark!


So…as the sun sets on another beautiful Southern South Dakota day, we appear to have some trouble brewing. I think I’ll just go on up to the newly remodeled on the inside mansion. I’m hungry and it’s mashed potatoes night.


Hmm: Looks like somebody broke down. I’ll go see if he needs some help.

    Makeup for the animals! That’s funny. You have to read the book before you can write up a manuscript don’t you? Hey, can any of your assistants read and write?

        The Action sign or Cut sign (black and white striped sign); the two masks (one smiling and one frowning) signifying theater (I think) and a happy face.
