We are in North Dakota

We are in North Dakota, on Highway 94, and we spy Salem Sue She is standing thirty-eight foot tall, and the sky is relatively blue. We are thrilled to see her, standing there, in her dairy cow clothes. She makes us feel optimistic, that things will get better, as everyone knows. Fargo Theater, ninety-years on March 18th shut temporarily down. We were disappointed to find this out. It gave us a bit of a frown. For I had been counting on it but then I spy the badlands up ahead. Painted in lovely beiges and pinks, they are so poetically wed. I received a buffalo nickel at gift store, and that made me feel good too. In North Dakota these pretty souvenirs are generously given to you. I spy a meadowlark, and remember that this s North Dakota’s state bird. Drive many miles without seeing another car, seems kind of absurd. Painted Canyon in Roosevelt’s National Park cannot be missed. A dainty wild prairie rose gives impression she has been kissed. Buffalo and cowboys we see and we happily giddily point out. Yes North Dakota is the place to be. So consider this my shout out.

Neither have I; I read some brochures though and they were pretty good.
