It was on a dark and stormy night and Ben and Cindy were driving back from a visit with Maude Gormley for her 104th birthday.
After passing the Godsey store, Ben and Cindy got into a vicious argument over the old dog Reckless being a boy or a girl.
Suddenly, Cindy started to scream and pull her hair out by the fistfuls. Concerned, Ben demanded to know what was wrong with his woman. Blue, its Blue standing in the road she shrieked.
Before Ben could react a large feathery thing flew past his face. Rover the peacock could not have had better timing when he chose to fly across the road.
Ben tried to apply the brakes before he hit the white mule in the road, but it was too late. Meanwhile Cindy had started to calm herself and got out of the car to walk back and see if the Godsey's had any hot chocolate.
It was not too long before Drew showed up riding his bicycle with Elizabeth in the basket. The picture of the young couple riding down the road so carefree caused Cindy to snap to reality. Why were Drew and Elizabeth so happy and carefree? Did she not leave Virginia with them earlier in the day?
Tired, blonde and confused, the color drained from her face WHERE IS VIRGINIA she thought out loud?
Virginia went with 2nd Curt, 2nd John Boy and Jim Bob's twin brother (who never really died but lived in the basement of the Baldwin's sisters house) and they met up with a dog named toto and went off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz.
