Lot: The Strickland Farm - Kolton, Cara, Mary, Ruby, Xen and the cats Princess and Ginn
Last Visit: Xen - The last visit to the Kolton Strickland home brought us lots of tragedy, starting with a drastic drop in the population at the beginning of the week, farmer Fraiser Strickland and his wife Camryn both passed away at the same time. It was hard on the pleasure seeking son Kolton. Even the cats Ginn and Princess found it hard to deal with. Then, Kolton decided to have a party to lift everyone's spirits. At this party Kolton caught his wife Cara sneeking a kiss with Bubbs Strickland, AKA Mr. Knowledge. Ginn and Princess continued to fight, Cara got abducted. Somehow she felt a burning desire to date Xuan Robbins after the abduction, and they met downtown at the Crypt-o Night Club, where they woo-hoo'd in the photobooth. She became pregnant, and gave birth Xuan's son, Xen.
Xen: Yeah, I know alright!
Xuan: Hey boy, is that you?
Xen: Yeah, you betcha. Hahaha!
Jati: It appears Xen can talk in telepathy before he can even speak.
Xen: I easily think words, but because of my physical limitations at this age I cannot utter them aloud.
Xuan: *pumps fist* That's my boy! How great is my seed???
Xenio: I am here as well.
Xen: Ah! My brother!
Xenio: We must met face to face!
Xuan: My boys! My boys! *Xuan is giddy*
Zaed: Your gifts are passing along at full speed, Xuan. The King will be pleased.
Alien chatter dies out....
Xen seems to love the kitties alot...
Xen: No I don't! I squeeze them to get them to shut up! I am tired of their growling and spitting!
LTW: To Become A Hall of Famer
Mary, on the other hand, stayed down in the dumps, like I was saying earlier. I finally suggested she call the Matchmaker. Maybe that would help.
Heath DeLarosa was who the Matchmaker delivered. He is the adopted son of Florence DeLarosa, the lady in Bluewater who owns a flower shop. He aspires to knowledge, but he is adopted just as she is. The two get along really well! Who knows? Maybe he will go to University the same time she will! From this point on, she was a happy camper, and was able to get some studying done before she left for college.
Meanwhile...at Four Winds Shopping.....
Ruby Strickland and Wendy Robbins
Zaed: Wendy knows nothing of our people visiting the earth, my Liege. She is behaving just as any earthling would and is discussing a matter that seems to be bothersome to the citizens of Prosperity Falls.
King: Alright then. Well enough.
Alien chatter dies out....
Well, this is Kolton. Until next time. Ta-ta!
Accomplishments this week???? uh......
TITLE: SIX WHITE HORSES
Last Visit: Alla Them Kids - Roz gives us her last narrative. She described how proud she was of Shane's green skinned babies, and how they left for University. She mentioned that she couldn't wait to become a granny. It is very apparent that she and Shane were very much in love...read on....
SHE'LL BE COMIN' 'ROUND THE MOUNTAIN WHEN SHE COOOOMES!
SHE'LL BE COMIN' 'ROUND THE MOUNTAIN, SHE'LL BE COMIN' ROUND THE MOUNTAIN....."
Shane: Whooz zare?
ASimWen: It's me. ASimWen.
Shane: Oh, hey. How are ya?
ASimWen: I am fine. Uhhh...how are you? Things have happened.
Shane: Oh...yeah. *seems crestfallen* I am getting along alright. Most days.
ASimWen: Roz used to invite me over every now and then to drink mint julep.
Shane: *chuckles* Yes, that was one of her favorite drinks. *sigh* I can't make it. I do have iced tea though.
ASimWen: Sweet southern iced tea?
Shane: What else is there?
ASimWen: Thanks. I'd love some. Alright, start from the beginning.
Shane: Well, it started with Rocco. He left for Univeristy way before any of us were ready. I mean, me and his mother. That left his twin Alexis to her own devices...
Her mother had fits...said young ladies didn't go out into the night doin' who knows what with whom-ever!. Alexis was lost without Rocco. She'd come sneakin' back in around 3 AM.
ASimWen: Who did she go out with? I mean, was it a bad crowd or anything?
Shane: Well, not really...it was with a boy she had been seeing for a while.
She seemed to be receptive to it. But I knew she missed Rocco.
Roz thought the dogs were the absolute bomb. She hovered over 'em constantly, makin' sure they had everything the needed to be...well...just dogs. I couldn't say anything. I really believed she was more than ready to be a granny. She was practicin' on them dogs.
Well, Roz's next project was to beautify the yard. She had a pond dug, flowers planted, and the grass trimmed. She invited the Garden Club to do an inspection. I was real proud of all her work.
ASimWen: And then...?
Shane: Then it was her time.
My Roz is gone. To the "Sweet Hereafter" she used to say. So I can't be too sad. Alexis has left for college...my Roz is buried under the weeping willow beside her pond.
SHE'LL BE COMIN' ROUND THE MOUNTAIN....
ASimWen joins in for a full chorus:
SHE'LL BE COMIN' ROUND THE MOUNTAIN WHEN SHE COMES.....
SHE'LL BE COMIN' ROUND THE MOUNTAIN, SHE'LL BE COMIN' ROUND THE MOUNTAIN, SHE'LL BE COMIN' ROUND THE MOUNTAIN WHEN SHE COMES....!"
ASimWen: It was nice seeing you Shane. See you next week.
Shane: See you later Wen. Have a great day. *Softly strums the guitar, hum...then sings softly and beautifully...* Oh, she'll be driving six fine white horses when she comes..... *my Roz* Oh, she'll be driving six fine white horses when she comes.... *sniff* Oh, she'll be driving six white horses...." I*A tear slips down Shane's cheek, the strumming stops. ASimWen slips out the door, and is gone.*
Accomplishments: Plat headstone for Roz.
