On Sunday, October 2, Fran B., Linda J., Francis S., and Betty Rose S. piled into Fran's car and set out for Rodney, MS, in search of a Rodeo to be held in that vicinity.
Passing Port Gibson, they rode 35 miles in the wrong direction before noticing that they were low on gas. As no gas station could be found, they went back to Lorman, MS, where they bought some gas and found the right road.
Two hours, ten different directions, and a broken axle later, they arrived at Rodney. Finding the Rodeo at last they sped through the gate just as someone yelled, "Tickets, please!" Just then a loud "yippee" was heard and everyone began filing out the gate. The Rodeo was over. (Taken from the Maryone)
