TITLE: WORKIN' DAWGS
Last Visit: Six White Horses - Shane reminisced about his life with Roz. He described for us her accomplishments around the house and her eagerness to become a grandmother. She purchased two dogs, and fixed up the yard and dug a pond on their property. She then submitted all her hard work to the Garden Club and won the wishing well. She also passed to the Great Sim Beyond, leaving Shane in a lurch for a whole round living in the mansion by himself with the two dogs. This week, Shane and Roz's daughter Robin has arrived home from University with her fiancee KeyWon Bostic in tow.
Robin and KeyWon last seen graduating from University.
KeyWon's family tree.
KeyWon is a Fortune Sim with a LTW to have six pets reach the top of their career. Thus, all the dogs.
Robins' family tree. Errr...that is KeyWon BOSTIC...not Strickland. I was tired when I made this, I reckon.
Robin is a Family Sim and her LTW is to graduate 3 kids from University.
Robin and KeyWon at Four Winds Shopping
Robin: *smiles benignly* Excuse me honey? Who are you?
ASimWen: I am sorry. You don't know me. I am ASimWen. I knew your mother and dad. We talked quite often.
Robin: Mah dear sweet momma. Gawd rest her soul. I sure miss her. And Key didn't even get a chance to meet her. Well. If you were a friend of momma's then you are a friend of mine, and you are very welcome in our home. If you can find room to sit. Key has all these dogs here...
KeyWon: Hey, your sweet momma started the dog biz. I am just following up. If these critters are gonna be around, we need to make sure they earn their way.
ASimWen: You have beautiful dogs, KeyWon.
KeyWon: Ain't what they look like that matters. It is all about performance. Each one of these pups is gonna work right to the top. I guarantee it.
ASimWen: So they are 'workin' dawgs' huh?
KeyWon: Yep. I will see it through until they are all successful. Then we will start on our family, right hon?
Robin: *sigh* Yes, Key. *thinks inwardly that she would like to start a family NOW.*
Shane gives Robin and KeyWon the contents of his backpack
ASimWen: Start at the beginning. When you arrived home from college.
Robin: Me and KeyWon wanted to get married right away. Daddy was all down in the dumps about momma, and he said he wasn't feeling well himself. So Key and I decided to turn the living room into a wedding chapel.
KeyWon: *chuckles* Yeah, this place is big enough to hold a convention!

KeyKel: I'm sorry? *Blinks, confused* Ah, no. I am way too busy training the dogs to have time to watch TV.
Shane trains King
KeyKel: Yes, he was a big help with King and Trixie, I must say. I have to give credit to him for those two reaching the top of their careers. Any way, he couldn't help any more than that.
Shane passes...with Roz looking on
Last but not least...goofy looking Gilligan. hehe
KeyWon: Don't worry hon, we will start our family soon enough. Hey ASimWen, here is how far the dogs have gotten so far:

TITLE: ONE WEDDING, ONE FUNERAL
Last Visit: The Vacation, Part 1 and Part 2 - Quavi and Daphne Robbins became 'empty nesters' as the last of their seven children left for university. Daphne decided it was time to get away from the cold snowy Prosperity Falls winter and head to the beach for a warm tropical vacation. There, she and Quavi learned to hula, met the crazy old witch doctor, and learned to build sandcastles. All too soon, the vacation ended and they were home again.

Florentilla: Zaine. What a crazy time it has been since we got married.
Zaine: *Sighs* Eh, yeah.
Florentilla: Remember how we got married? Right away right here in the house?
Zaine: It was nice, wasn't it?

Xuan: Hang it up Ruby, you can't sing a note.
Ruby: Shaddup Xaun. *clears throat* Rock-A-Bye baby...in the treetop.....
Xuan: Very funny, nit-wit. You wait. I will keep you bloated up so big the only thing that will fit you is a circus a tent which you will wear for the rest of your days....you will FORGET what your toenails look like.
Infinity: That is ok, I will polish her toenails, and she can do mine.
Jati: Enough! Everyone! Do not forget there are more and more Anotothians that can hear your squabbles.
Quavi: My beautiful Daphne kept her shape through seven children..... oh but what a sacrifice any female should want to make!
Infinity plays chess with Malcom Landgrabb. Hm. I remember her playing lots of chess here.
Jati: I am concerned for Nacarlius.
Quavi: Aye. It seems he is weak of spirit when it comes to human domestic and family matters.
Jati: It is his human side fighting to be the dominate force in his life. This is something that must be faced and eliminated.
Quavi: Perhaps when he finally weds and impregnates Kelly Trimble, these symptoms of parental inadequacy will subside.
Jati: We can only hope.
Xuan: What. *sullen*
King: The womb! There is a new womb in the Mission.
Xuan: *sigh* She carries one. One fetus.
Zaine: My Florentilla, my green goddess...is impregnated already??? *mentally glares at Xuan*
Xuan: Hey man! It wasn't me. Don't forget I don't have a willing appetite for green goddesses. The father is....is.... YOU!
King: Xuan, are you saying that now you can determine parentage of an unborn fetus??
Xuan: Heck no. It is apparent to everyone who knows Zaine and Florentilla that those two are crazy about each other. Of course it is Zaine.
King: At any rate. There is no multiple birth. *sigh* I am afraid Alien X is quietly working behind the scenes to prevent them. If only I could get my hands on him!
A FEW DAYS LATER.....
Quavi: Ah! Another Anotothian is on it's way to be educated!
Zaine: Dad! What do you mean? *wink wink* My wife Florentilla is merely beginning to show her pregnancy!
Quavi: Errr, yes of course. I am so happy you and Florentilla are giving your mother and I another grandchild!
Florentilla: Oh Zaine, I am so blissfully happy here in this house...with you...
Zaine: It seemed like the time would never come, my love
(Editor - *GAG* Those darn 3 bolt Sims..........)
Zaine: Yes....my love.....
(Editor - That is more like it!)
Quavi: The time is here! Another is about to be born into greatness!
Zaine and Florentilla leave for work, not knowing what scene they will find when they return home.
Who should come on the lot right at this moment to witness his father's passing but Mr. Aspirational Failure himself, Nacarlius Robbins. There he goes again, number 4. Good thing I am not playing for points.
Florentilla realizes she is pregnant again.
Yanar grows to toddler
Daphne is abducted a second time in her life. Her husband Quavi was never abducted even once.
Zaine found the abduction hilarious, and Florentilla thought it awesome.
