Spring Fling Story

Today we are pawticipating in Madi's Spring Fling by telling the story of how mom and dad two forever anonymous people met.   Here is the story:

Once upon a time there was this girl.  She was what they called a Hoosier.  

Then there was also a boy, but he was not a Hoosier.

The girl graduated high school and decided she wanted to move west.  She wanted to go to California but life brought her to Utah.  She got married and divorced lived in Utah quite awhile before she met the boy.

  The girl grew up and worked for a city office with a man who was the Captain of the Sheriff's Posse (they rode in parades, did search/rescue operations, and pawformed in rodeos).  The girl used to do little favors for the Captain, like type up stuffs he used for the posse.  The girl would add funny things to the stuffs she typed up.  Before the  Captain took the papers to give to the posse, the girl always gave him a corrected copy without the funny stuffs on it.

This is the girl and her pup named Leroy.  Leroy was a city slicker.

One day the girl was VERY busy at work when she gave the Captain a paper with the funny words on it.  The Captain passed out the paper to all the men in the posse without having mom give him the corrected copy.  Mom didn't even realize the Captain never asked for a corrected copy until the next day.  By then it was too late, he already passed out the paper to the whole Sherrif's posse.   The boy was one of the members of the posse and he received a copy of the paper with the funny stuffs on it.  

The boy riding in a parade.

The paper was a uniform list.  The posse was going to pawform in the rodeo and the paper told them what uniform to wear.  It said things like:  Blue shirt, black pants, black hat, etc.  (Sometimes the girl would add "clean underwear" and  funny stuffs like that).

But this pawticular paper said something very silly.  It said: "This list was prepared by (girl's name) who is an attractive single female now accepting applications for dates.  To apply, please call (number listed)."

 When mom realized everyone in the posse got a copy of this paper she told the Captain, "*&^%$#@  YIKES!"

The next day, the Captain told the girl that one of the guys in the posse asked about her.  He wondered if she was crazy or had a screw loose nice.  The Captain told the man that the girl was having more fun than any self respecting single gal ought to be having very nice.  Then the girl asked the Captain if the guy was a lying, cheating, womanizing drunkard ax murder nice person.  The Captain said he was nice.

So the boy, now all growed up into a man, called the girl and asked if she wanted to meet him.

When the girl met the man she thought he was very nice but thought they didn't have anything in common.  But the man kept asking her out to dinner and mom was a broke single girl who had to eat so she kept saying yes.  And finally one day they both fell in love.

The REAL Eiffel Tower in Paris.

And they lived happily ever after . . .

Don't forget our band BDA (Bad Dawg Agency) is also pawforming a special song for this event so make sure you stop in and give it a listen.
