Murdo Girl…Inside the mansion

Here we are back at The Cowboy’s ranch. The cast and crew thoroughly enjoyed one pepperoni pizza night. The Exec Producer and her twin sister Sissy outdid themselves in the dessert department, with a delightful Italian cream cake served with a smooth green tea that had just a hint of a citrus bouquet.

As I look around the newly remodeled inside of the ranch house, I realize it has become home to the cast and crew. I just hope I’m not around when they all get kicked out. It will be a sad day for sure. Let me show you a few pics of the not yet remodeled outside of the mansion.

 Not too many improvements to the outside yet…It’ll help when the outhouse is fully functional.

When you have seen some of the remodeled inside, you will be able to imagine that being a member of the cast and crew the Cowboy has assembled to make a movie about two lady veterinarians is like falling into quick sand and having Lassie get there in time to save you…no, wait..luckier than that…It’s like winning the lottery and you have no poor relatives, or being the only one to escape from a burning building. You get it right? It’s the kind of luck only the clueless have.

Hey!! We heard that!!

As the renovations have made the inside so comfy, it has been increasingly more difficult to get the C & C to memorize their lines let alone be able to hit their marks. They feel they have risen above their respective parts. Are you kidding me?? Lav and MG think they’re too big to play a country veterinarian in a blockbuster movie? Do they know how many highly paid actors would run over their own grandmother to get a much coveted part like this?

Forgive my outburst…It ain’t my job…That’s what Exec Producers and Casting Directors, and Writer persons get paid to do right!


Day 3 of filming the next blockbuster movie…Take 2

Exec Producer: Oh darn..I broke a nail. It must have been when the maid served me hot tea and I said, “Ouch!” and hit my fingernail on my front tooth.

The evil maid and a favorite pic of Stephanie Spielberg and her sister, Sissy Spacek Spielberg. They’re identical twins. Twins run in the family.

Director with a megaphone: I’m not happy with the lighting. It’s too dark in this barn. Let’s move this scene to the big animal room inside the mansion.


Casting director: This doesn’t work for me. How am I supposed to cast a dog who is not blind, but has to pretend like it? On top of that, he has a seeing eye person walking around in a harness, trying to sniff out where the blind dog should or shouldn’t go. A blind dog can get along without a harnessed human.


 MG and Lav: She might have a point…Are their harnesses tight? I can’t see that far. Where are we going?

Arf: Like I’m supposed to know…I’m playing a blind dog, but my best guess would be the funny farm: Jeez..sorry for your bad luck.

Uh oh, there is a low flying plane…no wait, that’s AC herding buffalo…What Buffalo? They’re all inside the large animal room.

Don’t worry Tattle Cowboy. I’m taking notes. This is unbelievable. Who are you gonna tell?

Well as the sun sets EARLY on another south South Dakota day, here comes the Cowboy to check stuff out.

I still think we can get a part in this movie… They need mice don’t they? Will we have to be blind? We could get a 3rd mouse. Yeah…3 blind mice!! let’s go see if he has anymore small animal parts.

I’m the camera person. If it weren’t for sunrise and sunset, I wouldn’t have anything to do.


And so the day ends. The cast and crew don’t know they are being observed by the Phantom Wrangler. I don’t even want to know what he’s thinking. I just hope he keeps phantoming around.

    You would think having such an opulent setting in the mansion that they could afford higher wattage light bulbs! Tell Lav they do have rodeo queens and they have a 20 gallon hat with a crown on it. Go find a rodeo queen.

    I would also love more of the Italian cream cake and tea with citrus highlights. This movieing business gets you hungry.

      He girl…it sounds like your other senses are kicking in. If the female vet doesn’t work out, you might make a good seeing eye human.

    Hey, MG, I want to trade my crown in for a hat like that Phantomato Cowboy has! His hat is huge.
