Lady Lynda smiled bemusedly as she envisioned last night’s wild pajama party hosted by the Black Orchid. Lady Lynda’s reflected how her confidant Auntie Carol was there too. If she truly was Sumerian the Black Orchid aged rather well. She didn’t look over thirty Her sleek low necked, micro mini black satin dress barely covered her curvacious form. What was her real name? Lady Lynda fanned herself as she recalled the racy soire. She mused how orchid was Greek for testes. Howa lovely flower’s name could be so provocative. That party certainly was provocative. Such goings on, such titillations , such sensuality. It was like everybody there let it all hang out and then some.
Lady Lynda and Seymour Toze snuggled together on their love seat as they watched their absolute favorite afternoon talk show. They loved the perky , personable blonde hostess The couple laughed at the television woman’s monologue. Next they heard the guests and topics. Seymour and Lady Lynda heard there’d be highlights of a real rodeo in Longview TX.
“I just remembered darling There’s going to be a local rodeo“Yes it is.Id be fun to go us two.’ Seeing those cowboys, bronkin bulls, clowns and all that rodeo stuff” “Yippee eye kay aye the rodeo!!!! yelled the couple with glee. Now was their chance Seymour Toze felt as excited as seeing his first pedicure customer woman. His wife was as thrilled as seeing Dan. D. Walker talk clearly. She immediately thought of him when the word rodeo was mentioned on the show. They excitedly talked about seeing, real cowboys with genuine leather boots with fancy carved designs. They;d watch them ride horses running wild on the dirt floor. The cowboys would lasso those calves as quickly as Seymour Toze’s beady eyes eyed the toes of his female pedicure customers.
Lady Lynd and the love of her life, Seymour Toze sat at the third tiered level of the stadium. They were right in between the top level with box seats and ground floor seating. The two thought it was a terrific unobstructed view They were glad too they bought binoculars just in case. Lady Lynda tried to stifle her disapproval when she couldn’t help noticing how Seymour seemed to be quite interested in the curvaceous female drum majorettes in their rather skimpy cowgirl style outfits. Seymour immediately noticed his honey’s disapproval. He started to put his left arm around her while with his right arm holding the binoculars. Awww honey baby its only a show.” “Yes its that’s all it should be “ snapped Seymour Toze’s wife.
The twosome saw Native American men and women in full regalia including colorful headdresses with beautiful colorful plumes. Next came the Cowboys on their majestic black steeds. There were the clowns too giving the show a silly yet fun flavor.
Then next in the processions the first act out of the gate as quick as snapping one’s fingers bronco bull riders. They looked no more then their late teens. Some of their skills were truly impressive. They gave everyone who saw them they were practicing their rodeo skills since they were knee high to that proverbial grasshopper. Like they were little enough to look up to Jiminy Cricket
Lady Lynda noticed one of the bronco riders was somewhat older then the rest. She began to look at him more closely. As she did the woman immediately noticed it was Dan. D. The woman couldn’t believe her eyes. The man she met at the “World’s Oldest Freak Show” The man who virtually everyone in Intercourse PA thought was so exotic because they never heard a Texan accent before. There he was on that bull riding him like a pro. The couple noticed how when the bull dipped forward , Walker would lean backwards. When the animal rose on his two feet, his rider would bend down. Each time keeping a perfect zig to the beast’s zag. It was a joy to behold such symmetry. At least the ride was over and Dan D. Walker shouted Yippee kay Eye as he jumped off victorious.
He then looked up and saw the Tozes. He ran over , pumped up with victory, to where his friends sat. He smiled and waved at them. It was such a great feeling to see his old pals. Lady Lynda and Seymour Toze waved and smiled back. It was a terrific way to end the day at the rodeo.
