Niles Becomes A Dad

Title: Niles Becomes A Dad



Lot: Capehart.3 - Prosperity Falls - Niles, Doris and Justice Strickland, Mackenzie, Madelyn and Nichole Capehart

Last Visit:
Raising Up Twins

Niles Strickland narrating: Man, was I ever glad to graduate from University and get started on things with Doris. It hasn't been so bad movin' in with her mom and sisters. Well, Doris always had issues about what happened between her mom and Conrad Bain and everything. The result bein' her twin sisters Mack and Maddy. Doris still won't talk about it much. She has made friends with her sisters though, that is a good thing, and she has been helping her mom Nichole out alot. I think the tiwns are the greatest kids. (Niles is a Family Sim).

Doris has been talkin' about moving her dad's body to a family graveyard she is planning for the property. (Her father is Trevaus Capehart) Right now he rests in the Robbins yard beside Timo Robbins. Not my cup of tea, I hear they are an odd lot. My sister Synclare is married to Timo Robbin's oldest son Zaed, and she doesn't think they are different at all. Anyway, Doris really misses her dad, and wants to bring him home. I will do everything I can to help her accomplish this. It isn't right he is laying over there.

Well anyway, back to the present. Let's get away from the morbid talk. As soon as Doris and I got home from State, Madelyn and Mackenzie had a birthday party. Doris and Nichole spent the day baking two cakes, and when the girls got home from school, Mackenzie got on the phone and called her dad Conrad to come over. (See above photo). I was concerned for Doris, but she handled everything really well.

Now the talk is for the girls to go to State. They are a pair, those two. They want to study a little more, but haven't really made the decision when they will go. Anyway, we had another party at the house, a wedding party, me and Doris's.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

It was a great party, all the Stricklands that were able came. See dad in that picture sitting front and center? He is halfway there on his lifetime dream to see 6 of us kids married. I am number three. He was so happy and full of himself at the party I thought he was gonna bust. We held the party on the side patio, beside Nichole's vegetable garden. It was a great place to get married. After we said our vows, we had cake inside. While we were eating, there was alot of talk about the upcoming mayoral elections. That is when Doris broke the news. She plans to run against Mayor Kerris Strickland, my aunt, to try an unseat her and become Mayor of Prosperity Falls.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

OK here is the deal. Kerris Strickland's uncle was Timo Robbins. Yeah, the man who right before he died made alot of crazy talk about aliens and stuff. (See Marc-Henry Gets Married). Then, there has been some stuff by Berry Nosey on CNN hinting at some disturbing stuff about the Mayor's background, or lack thereof. (See Marc-Henry Dabbles In Politics). Doris seems to think she wouldn't have a hard time unseating my aunt. Also, Kerris hasn't been real tough on crime. Her own nephew (and my sister Synclare's husband) Zaed Robbins was on a crime spree for a while, and nobody could catch him (See Advancements), not even Captain Hero Ricky Cromier. There was alot of compaints that maybe Mayor Strickland wasn't doing enough. So it looks like my wife will start a life in Politics. Me, I did get a job, but it is nothing compared to what my wife wants to do. While she has started campaigning for the position, I have had to do alot of the pavement pounding for her as she hasn't been available to actually meet the people. Because.....

Doris and I have had our first child, my son. I named him Justice, to mark Doris's venture in to politics. Until next time.

Johnson Gets Fat

Terrance narrating: Hey, my name is, uh, Terrance. Yeah, that's right. *smile* My mom (Tosca) is real busy taken' care of my little brother and sister, and so I spend lots of time with my granddad and my granny, Jayrus and Tosha. My dad Johnson is looney...don't have a job and spend tons of time peekin' through a telescope. But mom don't care, so I guess I don't either. Well I go to school every day and stuff, and then I come home and play with granddad. At least I used to. He died here a few weeks ago and I am real sad about it. But I still have my granny. I keep this picture around of me and him spendin' time together and stuff.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

It seems like my mom is always busy taken' care of Kelsey and Samarah. Here is a pic of mom with Kelsey when he was first born. Here I came out lookin' like dad, Kelsey came out lookin' like mom, and Samarah came out lookin' like granny.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Mom says Samarah is the last kid in this family, she wants to get on with her career of becoming a Captain Hero. Dad wants lots of kids, and mom tells dad this is it. So I dunno. I just kinda keep to myself when they start that talk up. Hey, I kinda like having a little brother and sister.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

I remember when grandpa died. I was in bed, but I was peekin' through the door of my bedroom when I heard the comotion goin' on. There was granddad talkin' to the Grim Reaper, and there was some girls dancin' around. I wonder how granny allowed girls to dance for granddad. Well I guess since it was a special occasion and all, she let it happen. But anyhow, my granddad is gone, and now I play with granny. But she is often with Kelsey and Samarah too, so I keep to myself alot. I am lookin' forward to gettin' a little older now so I can do more grown up stuff. Mom talks about puttin' me into private school so I can have better chances at Sim State, the same place she and dad went to for college. That is a long way away for me, so I don't think about it much.

Well I guess that is what is goin' on around here. There is always lots of grown up talk and everything, but I don't pay any attention. I miss granddad.

Last Visit:
Kamika Throws A Wedding Bash

Joan Rivers: Dear viewers, I know I have been with you keeping you up on the news at the Gentlemen's Club. Come on, let's face it girls. With all the sex and raunchy stuff that is going on here, why, that was right up my alley! But today, I am going to hand the mic over to my good friend Alfred Hitchcock. I shudder to think about that has been going on behind the walls of The Gentlemen's Club. Better he tell you!

Alfred Hitchcock: Thank you for that interesting introduction, Mrs. Rivers. I say, there has been something going on in that house, yes, that house right there on the corner. From the outside, it looks almost normal. But inside lurks the misunderstandings of human nature.

Take Kamika Robbins for instance, the woman in that photo. She spent her life dodging the institution of marriage by taking multiple lovers and vowing to stay single. All so she could be with more men. She even had a child with one of her lovers (See Babies, Babies, Everywhere!) and left that child behind to be raised by her brother. However, Miss Robbins did a complete turn-about, and had decided in her golden years, to finally settle down and tie the knot. One of her many lovers, Professor Waylon had decided the woman would make a good wife. (See Kamika Throws A Wedding Bash) I wonder. But the most natural thing in the world happend to Miss Robbins in the most unnatural way. At the exact moment Miss Robbins was walking to the marriage alter to become forever bound to Professor Waylon, Miss Robbins received a very unwelcome visitor. The Grim Reaper himself. Oh yes, Miss Robbins died while finally trying to do the right thing. There you have it. Misunderstandings of human nature.

Now Miss. Robbin's ghost haunts the house on a regular basis. Her grave is in the family plot on the property, in the back yard. It makes one wonder, if she had anything to do with the newest death in that house. Of course there has been another death. First, let us consider this.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Here is Kamika Robbins in her ghostly form haunting her former roomate, Morgan-Rose Bostic. Notice the look of delight on her ghostly countenance. She loved to wake Mrs. Bostic from her slumber and send the woman into quite a nervous state. This happened, two, three times a week. Miss Robbins was quite agitated about something, and took it out on Morgan-Rose. In life, the two never did really get along. In fact the only people Kamika Robbins got along with were those of the male persuasion. That is why, it is of my opinion, that Miss Kamika Robbins is responsible for the death of Morgan-Rose Bostic.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Of course, it is pure speculation by the public, exactly, what ever did happen to Morgan-Rose Bostic that caused her heart to stop beating? Could it be, the Grim Reaper just chose her at random to take? I think not. Mr. Reaper always has an iron clad reason for taking a soul. Is it pure coincidence that Kamika Robbins happened to be haunting the very same night Morgan-Rose Bostic passed away? Again, I think not.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

It was days before Lucas Turner moved the urn that contained the remains of Morgan-Rose to the family graveyard, to rest beside Kamika Robbins. In fact, Mr. Turner did not mourn the passing of his former lover at all. Mr. Turner did not waste any time moving on to his next lover.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

He immediately took out his little black book and began calling the numbers, and getting his lovers to come to the home he had shared with Morgan-Rose. Ah yes, misunderstang human nature. This brings us to this question; Did he ever really love Morgan-Rose at all? After all, he did give her a daughter. (See Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!) And unlike Kamika Robbins, the two stayed together right there in that house, and raised the girl together, and even saw her off to college. A sweet young girl named Roxanna Bostic.

Dear viewers, it certianly is a question of humanity. I challenge you to think on this. Doing what is right; or not; before it is too late. Goodnight.

University/Manuel Capehart Caught Cheating!


Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Accomplishments: Dovie Bostic, Manuel Capehart, Roz and Lillith Strickland: Big Sim On Campus, Secret Society, and Greek House. Dovie - Summa Cum Laude in Physics, Manuel - Summa Cum Laude in Drama, Roz - Summa Cum Laude in Mathematics, Lillith - Summa Cum Laude in Physics.


Title: Manuel Capehart Caught Cheating!



Lot: Greek House Crumplebottom, Sim State University

Last Visit:
The Kids Go Clubbing


Roz Speaking: So ya'll are wonderin', Manuel cheating? Yeah, I could hardly believe it all myself when it happened. I liked to have never seen anything like it in alla my life, and I hope to never see it again! Well lemme tell ya from the beginnin'. We had moved out of the dorm into the Greek house after Niles and them graduated. That is me, Lillith, Manuel and Dovie. We did this right around the time we were half way through our sophomore year. Things was going real well for us. Manuel and Lillith had really become a couple, and me and Dovie were just sorta hangin' out and studyin', at this point. Well, Dovie did meet somebody eventually and so did I, but this thing with Manuel happened before all that.

Here is exactly what went on. I was on the phone in the house yakkin' to my friends. Lillith was in the bathtub, and Dovie was still in bed sleepin'. Manuel had gone outside to wait for the paper boy, and just kinda laid down in the grass to look at the clouds. You know how you can lay there and make pictures out of 'em? I know, a grown man doin' that. Manuel is a light hearted person, and lookin' at clouds was right up his alley. Anyway, the next thing I know I hear a huge crash, and smelled all kinds of smoke, like sulfur. Well, Lillith had already run outside. Apparently, Manuel became a great big 'ol target for a peice of space junk that came hurtlin' out of the sky crushing and killing him instantly. My heavens, there wasn't a peice of his body left anywhere. Just scorched earth.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

My poor baby sister Lillith was wailing and cryin', and down on her knees! Now here is where it gets even harder to believe. I saw with my own two eyes, Lillith beggin' to a horrible black apparition that was floatin' off the ground in between her and the peice of junk in the yard! My gawd, I realized it was Mr. Reaper himself! I fer sure knew he was out on our front lawn to take a soul. Poor Lillith, poor Manuel. I realized Lillith was doin' the impossible...she was barginin' with the Grim Reaper for Manuel's soul. My tummy filled instantly with butterflies. I started bitin' my nails to the quick waitin' for the outcome. By this time, Dovie had woke up with alla the commotion goin' on and had run right past me to be right with Lillith to give moral support.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

It all happened in an instant, I'm tellin' ya....there was Manuel lookin' as good as new, just appeared out of nowhere. My little sister beat the Grim Reaper, and Manuel CHEATED DEATH. That's right. I bet you thought he was cheatin' his grades, didn't you? Now you put that out of your head right now! Manuel is as true blue as they come! The only thing now that was left was that old peice of junk. Well, it weighed too much for us to just put it out for the trash truck. So we planted flowers around it and made it a yard ornament. Prettied up the Greek House front yard real fine.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

A few months later we graduated our sophomore year, and we all decided we needed a personal makeover. It was as if Manuel got a second lease on life. When we all got back from town that day, we girls just stood in awe of Manuel, and realized how glad we was to have him with us still. Paise the Lord, he is still with us today! We all did eventually graduate from Sim State. But here is what we did. We didn't go out and have some sort of big bash to go out in style. We all kinda did our own personal thing to celebrate our passage to the world of adulthood. I told you Dovie found her a man.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

His name is Lee Jeffries. She met him one night when we had gone to town together, and ever since that time those two had been on the phone together, and he would come out to the house and sup with us on occasion. Well, one night he phoned her and asked her to meet him down town at the Crypt 'O Night Club. Well she went right down there, and goodness to gosh, he asked her to marry him. She came back that night wearin' his engagement ring. I'd have never thought she would be the type to get married. Aunt Ramey said Dovie was her wild child...but it seems like she has been ok in college. I bet Aunt Ramey will be surprised to see that rock on Dovie's finger. That is how Dovie ended her college years.

Now me, this is another thing yer gonna find hard to swaller. I was raised up by my mamma and daddy believin' I would stay with them alla my life. I just really thought I was gonna go to school, then come back home to my mamma and help raise the rest of her younguns. But I have met the man of my dreams....his name is Shane Trimble. He just came runnin' into our Greek House one night when we was havin' a little get together with friends. Hey, he was nekkid as a jaybird. I had never seen a nekkid man before. Why, I marched right up to him and introduced myself whilst everyone else in the room was busy bein' horrified seein' a nekkid man swaggerin' himself about.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

He had the pretties eyes I had ever seen on one of God's children. He was pretty all over! And I told him so. Why it seemed like we just hit it off right away! I sincerely admired the way he could walk around in the natural without one bit of embarrassement in front of everyone.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Before I knew it, we was in each other's arms locked in a passionate embrace, slow dancing. Wait 'till I introduce him to mamma and daddy. I think they will like him. I am sure right now I want to spend the rest of my life with Shane. But we still have a bit of ways to go.But that is how I ended my college years.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

I guess it goes without saying that Manuel and Lillith intend to settle down and get hitched. They have been known to whisper about where they are gonna live when they get back to the Falls. Seems like they have been sayin' maybe with his mothers, Janelle and Marsha Capehart. Now that is one uncoventional family. Well one thing is for sure, Lillith is used to a crowded house with a big family residin' in it, and lots of love all around. I guess all those plans is no surprise, bein' how Lillith saved Manuel from death and all.

Well we all eventually did graduate and leave campus. Brother and sister Quavi and Yasika Robbins came to look after the Greek House. Yep, we happily handed the reigns over. Well, I reckon the next time I see you will be back in the Falls. Gawd bless ya.

Lot: Sim State University - Residence of Quavi and Yasika Robbins, Daphne Strickland, and Andre Bostic.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

It is I, Quavi! I am here to tell you about my adventures at Sim State University. As my brother Zaed has already informed you, (See Advancements). My purpose in attending these halls of learning is to find Daphne Strickland, and make her mine. She is to be my wife, and will bear my Anotothian children. My sister Yasika will meet Andre Bostic, although she has been kept in the dark about that fact. My brother Zaed has manipulated fate so that they will fall into each other's arms. I am eager to begin my part in our mission on earth.

To begin with, I did get Yasika and myself moved into a large house. And it was no surprise, the house already had two roomates in it, none other than Andre Bostic, and Daphne Strickland. As my brother told me, the Strickland females are extremely becoming in outward appearances, and we will make beautiful children. Daphne and I had been friendly as teen-agers before college, and we continued to be close after classes began. I wasted no time. The first day I was on Sim State soil, I began the steps toward Anotothian greatness on earth. I quickly put the ring of commitment on Daphne's finger.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Daphne was very excited to get that little peice of metal. I do not know why. To me, it is just a step. Albeit, a necessary step according to my father Timo, in the notes he left us. Yasika knows of our mission, but it seems that when the Anotothian female is exposed to the earth's atmosphere, she becomes disinterested in all things Anotothian and seems almost human. Yasika does not have much interest in the mission, so it appears the males of Anatoth will have to secretly manipulate our females to fulfill their duties. Thus, Yasika's meeting with Andre Bostic. She believes this is something she has done on her own.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Yasika and Mr. Bostic seem to have come to some sort of understanding of coupling. While he has not yet placed the ring of metal on her finger, Zaed has planned and placed into effect, this will happen before Yasika and Mr. Bostic leave Sim State. I will observe to make sure nothing goes awry. Speaking of awry. I am in the understanding that when one of the Strickland children first begin classes at Sim State, their mother Kirstee Bostic makes a visit. She made her appearance in our home, and nearly burned it down.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Mrs. Bostic was cooking for us all in the way human mothers do and there was a flash fire at the cooking range. Luckily the fire alarm went off, and a female fireperson came and put out the flames, admonishing us to be more careful than that. I will have to study what happened so it will not occur again. I cannot afford for my female to get charred. I would have to begin the process over again.

Now Yasika and I have moved to the Greek House Crumplebottom. Mr. Botsic and my female Daphne Strickland will follow soon. We have to get everything in order for our partners before they make the move. Until then, next time.


LOT: Sim State University - Residence of Roxanna Bostic and Tomas Capehart

Tomas Narrating: Well, it sure as hell hasn't been easy this past year here at State. Here me and Roxanna are, terrible in love with each other, living in great privacy on campus. Sex when ever we want. But it just seems like things don't go the way we want 'em too. Roxanna has been a little down in the dumps about things....thinks she is getting fat. I think she looks just fine the way she is. My gawd, she spends all her free time out there on the exercise machine, saying...just one more pound....

Roxanna Bostic - Changed Aspriation from romance to popularity. New LTW - to have 20 best friends.

To tell ya the truth, I have to get away every now and then. I go to town, play a little poker, and have a coupla drinks. Oh I love Roxanna and all. She is the best thing that ever happened to me. I have to get away from that gloom and doom about gettin' fat. One night I went to town and saw ol' lady Crumplebottom. Yeah...her family donated a big wad of cash to Sim State years ago, and got a Greek House named after them. Anyway, we sat at the bar and just stared at each other. I thought for sure she was gonna say somethin' to me, but she just kept staring with those beady eyes of hers.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Completely weirded me out, man. That old bag didn't say a thing to me. Not that I ever want to have a conversation with her. Just kept starin'. Anyway, I went back to the house and tried to forget about it. But I couldn't forget, I had to start thinkin' about which was worse, listening to how bad it was to be fat, or how weird it fells to get stared at by an old lady while having a drink in a bar.

Well, I guess that is all I have to tell ya. We are juniors now at State. It won't be long before we are outa here. Cya.

Last Visit:
The Dating Scene

Tryce Narrating: Well, my ol' lady Michelle, finally graduated from Sim State with honors. She has a degree in physics. I didn't know what she would do with that kind of degree here in the Falls, but she did eventually find a job that uses it. I'll tell ya about that in a minute. The last time I talked to ya, I mentioned I would tell ya about me and Michelle's wedding. Well, we got married her first day back from State. Yeah, we didn't waste any time becomin' snow leopard and wife.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Michelle and I were married at the foot of the mountain on our property, same spot where Jayrus and Tosha were married. We had a big party, the yard was filled up with people. Michelle started fittin' here right away like she had always belonged here, I guess that makes us a good match to build a life together. She has been helpin' mom with work around here, keepin' everything straightened up. Mom don't get around like she used to. Since dad passed on mom has been floating in between being loyal to him, and looking for someone to fill the void he left. Anyway, I will tell ya about mom in a sec. First I wanna tell ya, Michelle and me started our family right away.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

My first born is a boy! Jessie. He looks just like me, same hair, eyes and he has my snow leopard skin. Mom as real glad to get another granchild and Michelle was happy to become a mom herself. It feels kinda good bein' a dad too.

Anyway, I was tellin' ya Michelle got a job. She stayed home during the time she was pregnant with Jessie, then got a job real soon after. I am not so sure I am happy about the job she got. But she swears she has to do this to use her degree in physics. I don't see how.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

She went to Criminal Mastermind Zaed Robbins and asked for a job in crime! Jessie's mom is a criminal! Poor little guy. I stand there every day and watch her leave for work, and I pray she doesn't get arrested by Captain Hero Ricky Cromier and comes back home to us. I trust my wife is making a good decision in keeping this job. She told me Zaed is thinking of getting out of crime, and she thinks she can step right in his place as a Criminal Mastermind and rake in the cash for us. I am still struggling in Show Biz. I am up to Blockbuster Director. I just hope the rag magazines don't find out about Michelle's profession, I will be ruined.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Anyway, about mom. I remember tellin' ya about her date with Chandler Parker. (See The Dating Scene) Well she has been callin' him up on the phone, and he comes right over to spend time with her. The bum has never really taken her out on a date to town. But there is one thing I gotta say for the guy. He got rid of that pretty boy look. Dyed his blond hair to brown, then grew it out and got a cut that looks a little more like a rogue. *editors note: when Calista called up Chandler to come over, the game glitched and gave me a different character. The name was the same, and this character had the same feelings for Calista.* Mom loves him all the same. I guess looks to matter alot to her. Snow Leopard, Pretty Boy or Rogue. Mom loves 'em all I guess. As long as she is happy, I feel better for her, you know?

Well, time to cut this short. I gotta get ready to go to work, see ya next time.

*editors note: Jessie is the first Sim born in the third generation that carries the custom skin of one of his parents as dominate, when the other parent is a Maxis made character. And a correction to be made - in Andre Earns A Car , two pictures depict "Michelle Strickland" those should read "Michelle Kearney" Tryce Capehart's fiancee.*

The Robbins, Week 9/Advancements

Lot: The Robbins - Prosperity Falls - Meadow, Zaed, Synclare, Quavi, Yasika, Jati and Xuan

Last Visit: Zaed Multiplies

It is I, Zaed! I have come to tell you about my advancements on this planet Earth. I have experienced human life in witnessing the birth of my brother and my children, I have witnessed death in the passing of my father Timo! (See Never Let The Neighbors Borrow Your Tools) There is one more thing I wish to experience, however, this thing remains elisuve to me. Being that I was born upon this planet and I have never seen the home of my race, the planet Anatoth, I wish to go! I have been studying the stars every night, but my people do not come for me.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

It is almost to the point where I have been derelict in my duties inside the home in teaching my children about Anatoth. I seem to be consumed with the need to get there! If only I can get to Anatoth, then I can add to my father's notes, and I will have more to leave for the future generations of Anatothians on Earth. But in the meantime, I have been working the Earth careers. I have been a Captain Hero. I learned our town of Prosperity Falls was in need of protection so I fulfilled my duties. I soon became bored with it, and decided to follow in the footsteps of my father, Timo. I became a Mad Scientist. While doing that job, it occured to me, what if I were to become the opposite of a Captian Hero? I was able to break into a life of crime, and I became the ultimate criminal, a Criminal Mastermind. The old one, Captian Hero Ricky Cromier, could not keep up with my antics in the crime world. I am thinking now of going into medicene...another one of my father's careers.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

My beautiful wife Synclare has given me another fine son, I named him Xuan, after the King's medicene man on Anatoth. He has the complexion of my mother, Meadow, and has her yellow hair. But through DNA testing, I have learned he carries the Anatothian DNA. So we are still advancing. My son Jati is studying hard to become a fine Anatothian, and to pass along our DNA. He has studied with many different peoples, besides myself. As I said, I have been studying the stars at some length. My brother Quavi has been giving him lessons, as well a good friend of the family, Pachionetta Bostic.

My sister Yasika has been studying hard as well, but her mind seems to be mostly on boys....I am sorry to report Yasika wants nothing to do with college or learning, all this came about after her birthday.

Yasika is drawn to my wife's brother Bulldog Strickland. I have seen him kissing her right in the front yard in front of the neighborhood. He is not the one I have planned for her to marry! My studies have shown the best DNA mix for Yasika would be to marry my wife's nephew, Andre Bostic. But alas, they have not even laid eyes upon one another. Mr. Bostic has an interesting feature I would like to see in bloodlines of our family. He has a prominent nose, and carries the blood of another knowlege sim like myself. His mother is Ramey Bostic. I have seen to it that Yasika will find Mr. Bostic at Sim State, where I have learned he is already attending. Yes, Yasika and my brother Quavi left for Sim State on the same day. I was glad to see them go, that leaves just me and Synclare, along with my two sons Jati and Xuan in this house, and my mother Meadow. Meadow is nearing her time I think; soon she will join Timo in the after life that humans seem to believe in.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Quavi left for State with some reluctance; but reassured me he would do well in his studies. He has already declared my wife's sister Daphne Strickland will be his wife that will carry on our race. While he had some interest in Roxanna Bostic, my wife's neice, we agreed together Daphne is the best choice. I wish Yasika were as solid in her thoughts for a mate. I can only be glad she did not turn out like my Aunt Kamika. Until next time! This is Zaed!

Roz Narrating: Hay yallses! It's me Roz. Hay. Even though I am at Sim State wadin' through all them books and papers, I kin get ya caught up on the mud goin' on back in the Falls at mom and dad's! Do ya 'member when I was tellin' about my maw-maw Brandi? How she went to the sweet heareafter an' everything? (See Roz And Litllith Make An Escape). Well I had wondered if maw-maw would ever come around and see us again. Well, she did! Except I wasn't home to see it, daddy called me up at school and told me. But a real bad thing happened, girl it like to broke my heart. I won't ever git a chance to see maw-maw again! That's right! Some old gave robbers come and took her headstone right out of the yard. Daddy says that is what maw-maw needs to come out to see us. That's so sad!

Anyway, the last time I talked to ya'll, mom was pregnant with kid number 9. Well, mamma had her, yeah a girl, and I was hopin' for no more girls because of the lack of names in the TV Show Fraiser. But my gawd, daddy went and done it. He named her Gertrude, after Daphne Moon's mother. So I have a sister name Gertrude. I think I will call her Trudy 'cuz Gertrude doesn't roll off my lips nice and proper.

See that picture of mamma at Daphne's birthday party? Well that was after Trudy was born, and look at that! She is thinkin' about another baby! My mamma the baby machine. Well anyway, Daphne had a great birthday party. Wasn't a whole lot of us around, but she said it was fun all the same.

Seems like after Daphne had her birthday party all she could think about was buyin' expensive stuff like stereos, and findin' time to get together with Quavi Robbins and gettin' him to take her to town. Well the very day she had her birthday party, she snuck out with him that night. He come and picked her up in a big stretch limo and they was gone almost all night. Mamma wasn't payin' much attention, she was busy barfin' all night being pregnant. Number 10. Yep, found out she was pregnant again after all. Daddy just seemed to take it all in stride. Yeah.

Daphne called me up and told me all this stuff, that Quavi gave her her first kiss. It is only fittin' I guess, those to had really gotten along from the time they met as kids. I heard that Quavi also gave my cousin Roxanna Bostic her first kiss, so it kind of makes me wonder where his heart really lies. (See Kamika Throws A Wedding Bash) Makes me think this guy gets around, ya know what I mean? Yeah...I mean..really. But I heard from Dovie Bostic that Roxanna has a boyfriend now at State, Tomas Capehart. Maybe she will leave her mitts off Quavi.

Well, Bulldog had his day too. He had a birthday, and I managed to show up for that one, so did Lillith and Niles. Fraiser didn't come because he and Camryn had their telephone disconnected cuz they was tryin' to save money gettin' that farm goin'. Mamma said she couldn't call him up to remind him to come over. I thought that was kinda lame...somebody coulda walked across the street to get 'im. But I guess with alla us here, it gets mighy confusin'.

Anyhow, yep, that is all of us. Oh wait a minute. The cast is complete? Yeah..thought I would leave it out didn't 'cha? Mamma had her final labor, her final delivery...she had......
