Murdo Girl…The self-anointed Queen

She calls herself a Queen, though they’re rarely self appointed. She thinks that when you meet her you won’t be disappointed.

She has costume crowns galore and wears them everywhere. She doesn’t know the reason all her people stop and stare.

She thinks her subjects are impressed by her regal ways. She doesn’t see their eyes are covered over with a glaze.

Her attire always sparkles from her head down to her toes. Even in a darkened room she absolutely glows.

Her heroine has always been the fashionable Queen Liz. I think she knows Queen E is even older than she is.

forgot my pompoms

Lav has stood beside her through all the thick and thinning. They’re longer in the tooth now and the thick is clearly winning.

They only ask one thing in life, but it could be a hurdle. They want to ride one more time down the streets of Murdo.

They’re busy getting ready to wave at all their fans. They work out every day stretching rubber bands.

She ain’t heavy, she’s my cousin.
“I dropped my camera!”

MG said to tell you if you want to catch her eye, just remember she’s a Queen and wave as she goes by.

My sister-in-law, Liz Francis, and my niece, Erin Francis, saw this awesome t-shirt and thought of me…You’re both royalty in my book.

    Absolute hilarity in the best way and your new t shirt is pink perfection. I cannot stop reading this and the pictures bring it all back, Unforgettable times in Murdo. Maybe we will hire someone else to carry your banner next time so it doesn’t get dragged in the dirt. I don’t know anyone who would turn down the queen’s request!

      I love your comment Lav. It does bring back the fun times we had. BTW I still have the banner in case Sam and Marilyn don’t make us a new one.
