Oh, no. Palette is gone already, enjoy your time with your Cuddly Bear again. You got lucky with another townie with good traits. Congrats, Flip! I'd have wolf whistled if I was in the audience  ;)

RIP Palette! She was such a great heir and will be missed but at least she gets to be reunited with her cuddly bear  ;)

Thanks, everyone. I'm going to miss Palette. She was always blowing kisses, but would totally shut the guys down if they started to flirt.
I've got my air conditioning back, so my husband can stop with the looks when I have the fan aimed at my laptop instead of me.

Thanks, @Tixxis , sometimes I just can't help myself.

The next day was Flip’s adult birthday. Both he and Paulette had to work. She got home from her business job at 3pm, and hour after the carpool came for Flip. Even though he was tired, they had a private celebration when Flip got home. He didn’t even wait til his Flip hair grew back.



Family Oriented Paulette was thrilled that they were finally starting their family.



Flip had been wanting to get married for a while, and a few hours before the baby came, Paulette agreed. The most romantic setting for a Doe wedding yet.



So Flip, you can smile.

Cuda absolutely adores her doll, Peanut.



A virtuoso becomes one with her instrument.



She doesn’t seem to like the idea of a desk job.



Daddy, sporting his work hair, teaches his angel to walk.



One last look at our little family. Tomorrow will bring many changes.

Barracuda! You better start fanning yourself rather than the laptop, Watcher.
Look at that tiny angelic face... Well, maybe she'll grow ferocious teeth. Who knows?  :o

@Tixxis   You see her biting on that xylophone mallet? Actually sometimes "what do you want to name her" pops up, and I haven't really thought it out.
@Playalot , @Nettlejuice  I think it's the combination of her mother's darker skin, her father's vivid blue eyes, and the Doe blond hair that make her so stunning.

It’s Birthday!
Flip: Now remember what I told you about Great-grandma Tahiya’s special potion. If you….
Hey, hurry up I sold the potty chair!


After sorting herself out at the mirror and dresser, Barracuda took her special doll outside and set it on the ground.


They chatted and played all morning until, Cuda and Peanut were best friends.
Barracuda: You want to be real?
Peanut: I thought I was real.
Cuda: I mean really real. It probably won’t hurt.
Peanut: Sounds good.


Cuda: I wonder if I’ll get an award for this.
Peanut: Briefcase.
 

Peanut fit right into the little family. Flip had to go to work, but with zero encouragement, Peanut and Paulette spent the day together and became best friends. Cuda went fishing. She got a minnow


When Flip got home it was time for Birthday Part 2.
Flip: My hair may be gray, but it’s still Fliptastic!


So fishing, school, homework.
Cuda: Yeehaw! It’s my birthday again tomorrow.

Already? You’ve only been to school once. You’d better work hard if you want a decent trait. Speaking of traits, Peanut’s are Star Quality, Disciplined, and Perceptive. Not Imaginary Friendy at all.

Nooo *cries bitterly* I don't want Flip to grow old. *sniff* ... Nice IF traits by the way, mine were 100% always, without a doubt, evil little suckers.

Still Fliptastic, love it. You and Malley have been lucky to get good traits for IFs. Great shot of Peanut and Paulette pillow fighting.

Of course you're still Fliptastic, Flip! Barracuda is just adorable and Peanut is quite handsome. Great traits, too!

@Playalot , I really hated to see Flip age too. He's been a lot of fun to play, and they go so fast after they reach elderhood.
@Nettlejuice , Peanut is very nice, if a bit boring. My biggest disappointment is that he has black eyes not those vivid turquoise IF eyes.
@Malley , Barracuda and Peanut are cute together, but a bit dull.

Barracuda and Peanut celebrated their birthdays while the adults were at work.
Cuda, what are you doing?
Barracuda: I’m trying to see where the rest of my hair went.


She found it.
She gained the Angler trait, while Peanut became a Born Salesman.


Barracuda starts playing her birthday present, although she seems a little more interested in Peanut and his PBJ.


Peanut got a present too.


Prom was coming soon, so Cuda decided to ask Peanut. Not only did he say yes, he also told her that they would have the time of their lives. And they did. The were voted king and queen and decided to go steady.


Paulette: You got me out of the hot tub for this?


Flip Doe, Super Star!
Flip: You’d better believe it!


The synchronized homework team…


Becomes the synchronized diploma tossing team.

Welcome to young adulthood. And you thought being a teen was tough.

@Malley , They are cute together when they actually have the time.
@Tixxis , Super Star is level 9 and with graduation and all that's as far as he got. I loved his career outfit.
@Nettlejuice , Yes, she was interested in something and I don't think it was the sandwich.
@Playalot, I think Flip may found an immortal dynasty someday.

Barracuda joined the fishing career when she was a teen, but hadn’t really done much with it. Peanut, who had an impressive reputation with the consignment shop was happy to sell whatever she caught.
Ooh, a toad. Your 4th type of fish. Only 15 to go.


Peanut was already a level 10 alchemist and knew all the elixir recipes, so he took up gardening. Mostly he read gardening books at the library and tended one little basil plant. He knew they would be moving and that his main work would be in the next town.


At age 55, when everyone including me was away from the home lot, Flip passed on. Sadly, I didn’t get a picture of his ghost. I was waiting for him to beg or shake Grim’s hand, but he just clapped his hands and yelled “Woo!” and jumped into his tombstone.
That was very Flip of you.

Barracuda was at level 8 on her bass skill as a teen and had already earned over 25k in tips. She and I agreed it would be easier to learn all the songs than it would be to catch a million, okay 350, fish.


Barracuda’s first deathfish.  Her career should start progressing faster. Thanks to Peanut this $600 fish sold for $1100.

Paulette died at age 54 with her daughter at her side.


Now look carefully. Yes, Barracuda is fishing, but that’s French grass and that’s a frog not a toad. That makes it exciting and romantic fishing.


The day following her adult birthday, Barracuda was only about 3,000 away from level ten in her fishing career. One more night’s fishing would do it. So while she fished, Peanut gathered up the family plot from the cemetery. Two tombstones have gone missing, Janelle and Tristan. The rest will be moving.

*Sharp intake of breath* Nooo... <sniff> RIP Flip, and Peanut too of course. I think I may have to adopt 'fliptastic' it's just such a great word. I don't know about anyone else but knowing that it was French grass just made it all so much more exciting. lol, your humour KRae is awesome.  :) I too can't wait to see where they are going.

@Tixxis , Thanks! Fishing is a good skill to press 3 on.
@Nettlejuice , Flip was great! In retrospect, I'm delighted he only got to level 9 in sports and only completed one career opportunity. Now I'll be able to use Sports instead of Military in the future.
@Playalot , next line will tell what grass we'll be seeing for a while.

The Does moved to a little inconspicuous house in Dragon Valley. Peanut did his buy and consign thing at the elixir shop and started an alchemy garden.


Barracuda used some of her accumulated happiness points to get a dusty old lamp. It financed a remodel and a quick trip to China. Yes sure, play for tips at the graveyard. Midnight is only 6 hours away, maybe someone will turn up to watch. They didn’t.


Back home, Cuda caught some alley catfish and angel fish so she could stalk a pond at home. Ah, Dragon Valley is truly beautiful.


This is their little house. The cemetery is directly across the street . To one side is the business office with the grocery/diner on the other. There seems to be a singer performing 24/7. Nuala something. One of the perks of living downtown, I guess.


Day two in Dragon Valley finds our couple attempting to begin their family.


Apparently it worked.
I’m pregnant.
Pat, pat, pat. Good for you.


Flash forward.
Cuda: I love the outdoors, I love the outdoors. Holy John and Jane!
