The Townies begin to gather
Melissa Fancey arrives at the bus stop
Over at the Raptors, a pair of twins arrived,
and Mitch and the twins moved out to the Bus Stop to wait for the others.
A bit overwhelmed
Don't worry Mitch, we'll get you some help within a
minute or two of lot-time.
At Eleanor and Kennedy's place, Kennedy took Melissa's arrival mostly in stride.
Someone new for breakfast
"Now hm, I get home from work, and Eleanor's asleep,
and this other woman comes out of the bedroom and makes herself some breakfast.
I'm just not going to think about this too hard."
Melissa made good use of the facilities, both solo
She also made good use of the bed and all, but we'll
leave that behind the curtain.
And with the others.
"I'm glad everyone's getting along so nicely."
"And you both look like real dorks in those caps, har har har!"
Eventually it was time to go.
Another goodbye kiss
After making sure that Kennedy is occupied in the other room.
Off in the taxi
"There'd better be interesting people there."
And Mitch got some (rather reluctant) help.
"Babies? No one said anything about babies!"
"It's not going to poop on me or anything, is it?"
Christie joins the crowd
As we saw the other day, Christy Stratton
(Sally's first love from all those Sim years ago) is the third recruit for Project
Townie, over at Rooms to Let.
A new bed in a new place
Christy used Taylor's old room. A little bare since Joan
took many of the fittings for her own room, but still it was better than the Generic
Townie Housing Christy was used to.
It seemed like a friendly place.
Boogying the night away
That's Taylor in red, come by for a visit, dancing with Brandi, and
Sandy and Peran on the right. Christy's not actually in this picture, is she?
These things happen.
She took full advantage of the local facilities and expertise.
The animations for this device are pretty funny.
"Now consciously relax your muscles as you tell the lie..."
The Rooms to Let regulars make good tutors.
Although her life's ambition is to have six grandchildren
(which isn't going to happen anytime in the foreseeable future, I'm afraid),
she's currently in the Law Enforcement field (as is Mitch), and she stayed around
long enough to get a promotion or two.
"Who's your favorite officer?"
I could swear my Family sims didn't do this
silly "honey, I'm home" thing until like last week sometime.
But there were complications.
"Oh, my gosh!"
Where did you think Sandy was sleeping?
The place only has four beds.
And although Sandy was very nice about it,
"C'mon, baby, you know how it is."
it was eventually too much.
Although the Extractor's evil devices had robbed Christy
of nearly all of her memories, she knew she loved Sandy, and couldn't stand seeing Sandy
and Brandi getting affectionate. (Although most of the Townie Project sims are being
brought in by Romance-aspiration lovers, I'm avoiding any romantic interactions post
move-in (at least with the ones like Christy that are neither Romance themselves nor
parents of any kids), in hopes that their relatively pristine memories will make for
more monogamous marriages if they get hitched later. But that doesn't prevent these
jealousy reactions, since they're based not on memories but on relationship bits.)
Time to go.
"Don't forget to write."
Note Sandy standing in the flowers in her underwear.
Sandy's teddy from the Wooden Simolean; Brandi's sweaterdress from Sim City Gallery.
And Melissa could pass the baby off to someone else.
"You're a family-type, you hold it!"
