Murdo Girl…NASCAR?

Have you ever seen anything like it? Murdo Girl and Lav started out on a road trip just last week. The first day they picked up a dog who was standing by the river. It must be that his owner passed away and left him homeless because he sure seemed depressed. It wasn’t long until Lucky began to feel really important, because…well, not to run ’em down or anything,…sometimes those girls just don’t think right. 

They sort of felt bad when they got run out of Murdo. The town made them feel like they were invited to leave. Is not being able to hold down a job at that Prairie Pizza place good enough reason to show them the road? My goodness that place has standards higher than the Queen was at the Rodeo. Amazingly she came down unscathed, but the bull antlers like to have scared her to death.

After meeting up with Lucky, Lav and MG motored 20 miles south of Murdo and, what do you know? They stumbled onto the Cowboy’s movie making ranch. The whole gang was there, plus a few more.

So, they made a real interesting movie, called “Take 2.” Then when that milk cow dried up, they hit the road and got as far as the town of White River itself, and guess what? They participated in a rodeo. It was great fun, but there’s not much money in rodeo making, so they hit the road again.


Hey…It’s AC! What am I supposed to do with these horses? Whose truck is this anyway!

Lav: How far are we going to get today MG?

MG: Why don’t you just ask me how much gas we have. That tells the story. Are they all still behind us?

Lav: It was really nice of the Cowboy to give us that VW van. He even indicated that he might come and see us once we get settled.

MG: Is that what shrugging your shoulders means in the Cowboy ‘s language?

Lav: Durned if I know…

MG: Well, I was going to try to get to the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD, but I can’t make that happen. There’s a map in the glove box, point your finger to a town we can stop at on the way.

Lav: Well, it’s 151 miles to Mt. Vernon, I hope there’s something fun to do there. Hey! guess what? Is says on the map the NASCAR Races are in Mt. Vernon this year. I’ve always wanted to drive a car in a big NASCAR Race. I sure hope we make it, cause they start tomorrow. Hey! I’ve got a good idea. Let’s stop by the Pioneer Auto Museum and see if Ruben will let us borrow a few cars.

If you want something bad enough, sometimes all you have to do is ask…and sometimes you’ve got to get a hold of Ruben in the dark of the night.

So, Mount Vernon it was…and it never will be the same again…ever!


Sissy couldn’t wait to get out of the museum to start serving her cake. I had some…It’s kind of dry.

TC seems to be getting pretty friendly with some guy named Doyle. Probably cause he has a wrecker.


Kodak is a favorite to win. She’s going around these punks.

wp-1500250789948.jpgHey look at Sherri, one of the punks.. And she’s having a virgin Bloody Mary while she drives.


Somebody should tell the hat cake lady she’s going the wrong way. Looks like she plans to take a nap later.


Lav:  Don’t you just love all these people clapping and taking pictures of us?

MG: It’s kind of hard to see with this helmet on. Now why did we have to wear a helmet instead of our crowns?

And the Winner is?


Looks like Lucky has it by a nose, or a tire…Good job DM. It’s got to be tough having to announce… and race!


This guy is cheering for Lucky

And so the Sun sets on another beautiful south South Dakota Evening. I just hope the gang gets their cars back to the museum by morning.

As the gang makes their way back to Murdo, they aren’t aware of what the Cowboy’s thinking…And the Phantom Wrangler has some plans of his own.




Toodaloo Mt. Vernon…Now where can I get some gas?

    Darn I was busy using my megaphone to have a conversation with Lav on tire pressure, drafting and altitude affects on gas/air atomization and I got distracted. Otherwise I would have won the race and got some NAS!

    Being in a Nascar race sure is fun. What does NAS mean?
    If we make it back to Murdo, will the Prairie Pizza guy give us severance pay or just enough dough to fill our tank?

      If you believe what people ate saying, we won’t be allowed on the premises. Wouldn’t you think we’d be getting pretty famous by now? I mean…Murdo, get reasonable.
