Thanks Lily! I find it boring too, I'm not even taking as many pics as I did the first time. It's all too much deja-vu for my taste! But I have taken a few, and once I figure out what to do with the pics on here and the gallery, I'll be starting another thread!  ;D

Wunn: Week 6

I have taken Rachel's suggestion and redesigned the slide at Wunn Stop Fishing Pond into a water slide. The boys haven't had time yet to go test it for me, and since apparently this adult cannot use a child's slide, I will have to post pictures of it next time.

We also had the builders over to create a master en-suite for Lolly and I. I was going to include some pictures but we've done some renovations already so I'll add them next time.

~

At home, the boys are growing ever bigger. Oh, and older too! Theo puts in a good argument for a second bathroom.



Then the boys have their birthday party. I actually invite some guests this time around.





Here they are in their formal attire, looking quite sharp. First Tu, then Theo. They're not as similar anymore.





Marc continues to sculpt and paint the days away.



He demands a picture with his first ever masterpiece ice sculpture! Lucky for us it's a museum piece.



The boys spend as much time together as teens as they did as children. Working out, having breakfast, and of course painting.







Tu also spends some days making friends after school. This chap is Moses Bull, Marc's son. Amy and the children have moved into the old Pidgin place.



Marc and Amy find an afternoon now and again for a movie date.



Alas, it is time for my last birthday. The boys are at school and Marc is out with Amy. Lolly helps me celebrate at home.





Not really different from last time, eh?

I finally find time to stock my pond with 10 perfect Deathfish.



And on Saturday, I achieve my lifetime wish. Seems I do most of my requirements after dark.



Next week: Marc tries to complete my Elder and Tu's Teen museum pieces before he dies. Fingers crossed!

@ Kattiq: Big Ears Dude is Tay Bayless, his sister, Chase, is Big Ears Gal in the pink dress in picture #2. They are the homey, back woods family of Twinbrook. Like SV has the Alvis and RV has the Grisbys. They made very easy best friends for Wunn because they share Anger and Loves the Outdoors traits!

Wunn: Week 7

This is a shorter update because I've been so busy making friends and fishing for Deathfish at night that I forgot to take pictures. Lolly was kind enough to take a few for me. (Only 15,000 Simoleons until Level 10 Fishing guru!)

First off, the new master suite built for us last week and then renovated to include an en-suite bathroom. The room is located back behind Marc's room and has a great view of my pond. Well, it will be a great view once we get the landscaping done around it. See my fishing award? They said it was wearable but I can't figure out how.





See, a beautiful little nook that I have no use for just yet, but it's got a comfy looking chair! Then the closet.



And the bathroom. The red is for Lolly, I think it works but hey, I just fish and garden. The toilet is on the left behind the screen.



The boys spend all their time together. They still share a bed too. At least I know there won't be any girls staying over any time soon!



That picture is also to show you that Marc is still alive and well. He got all our museum pieces done with a couple masterpieces thrown in for flavour. He's currently being commissioned by me to paint Lolly. I told him to scrap the squiggly looking one he did first. It may have been a masterpiece but I want a portrait where I can see Lolly's face!

Lolly is very proud to announce that ... what?! No, she's not pregnant! She found 2, not 1 but 2 Rainbow butterflies on one insect collecting trip! We have proof. Well, it seems the first one caught her.





Oh yeah, the boys have been mostly good about getting their homework done before joining Marc in the new art room.



With Marc on borrowed time, Theo starts sculpting as soon as he's able to paint portraits. Tu will join him as soon as he masters painting.



Marc has obviously been giving away his secrets.



Next week: Will Marc hang around long enough to do Tu's YA museum pieces, or is it going to have to wait for Theo?

@ Esther: That was Theo's first attempt at an ice sculpture, and he did the same thing on his second. He's 2/2 right now. *Shaking my head*

@ Rachel: I think he's around 100 days right now.

Update when I wake up in the morning.
I'm a little freaked out though because Wunn is 87 days old (I think) and no life fruits are ready for harvest yet! Any day now and then it's go time.

Wunn: Week 8

Lots going on this week, settle in with a cup of hot chocolate.

First, the boys have their YA birthday and Lolly gets so excited that she looses track of the crepes she made.



5 second rule! They go in the fridge.

The boys are a little more coordinated this time.







The flames on their shirts are for extra boost during skill training in the art room all day. It works!

The boys also finally have time to try out Lolly's treadmill. They're not doing so well. Tu skins his knees while Theo takes it slooooow!





Lolly wants to honour her old friend and still boss, Gala Ball, for the almost daily trading of kitchen secrets! Yay for free family recipes!



Tu goes on a friends quest. He has dinner with best friend Zo Wheloff.



Corners Melinda Hunter (daughter of Buck Greene and Kat Hunter) in her home. She uses the "have to go to work" excuse to escape.



Chats up Alanna Jones-Brown (daughter of Goodwin Goode and Jenni Jones-Brown) in the park. Her Dad must have played the "I've got your nose!" game once to often.



[I'm a sucker for original townie offspring becoming spouses!]

Tu left the house a single, unemployed, still living with his parents, overweight young man and goes home a unemployed, still living with his parents, overweight young man.







Two questions and three rings later, he is no longer single!

Meet the new Sunburst: Zo! I think we will be best friends based on favorite colour alone.



Zo is less than 2 weeks from her Elder birthday but there is still plenty of time for grandchildren. She wants to be a firefighter but joins the medical career without too much arguing.

The treadmill is finally pulling it's weight around the house. It's working better for Tu than Theo, apparently.



Zo spends her day before starting her new job handing losses to her first 2 ranked chess opponents. She jogged to the park.



I find Lolly just a little too excited about stirfry.



My young bride is still as beautiful as the first day we met!



Next week: Can I find life fruit in my garden before the Grim finds me and it's game over? Even before the Grim finds Marc?

Wunn: Week 9 Part 1

This is my last week posting updates as I will either be dead (and there will be no reason for updates) or my son Tu will finally get the chance to continue our story his way.

The smell coming from the kitchen wakes me up this morning; yes, it is actually still morning when I get up today. What on Earth is Lolly cooking?! Or maybe one of the boys thinks it's a great idea to prepare breakfast today, or maybe young Zo? Whatever it is it smells ... dead! I don't even take the time to change I just head for the kitchen. This is what I find.



She then puts in on the counter in front of me and says "Eat." I look at the foul smelling dish, then back at Lolly. Is she for real?



Lolly sighs "It's your Ambrosia, silly, I found the life fruit in the garden this morning and since you now have 6 BFs, this is breakfast. Sit, eat. I hear it's almost tolerable while it's still hot."



I eat it. At 88 days old that was cutting it just a little too close for this old man! And yes, it tastes rotten!

Tu heads for the park to rustle up another friend and runs into Melinda Hunter. That would have been one heck of a wedding night surprise!



Zo's daily chess matches in the park have become a source of must-see entertainment for the fine folks of Twinbrook.



This is why I can now garden at night: flame on a bush!



Tu wants me to share this picture of him and his painting. This painting is #30 and Brilliant painting #6! It's a two-fer! It gets a special place on the wall in his room.



Part 2 to follow a trip to France.

France trip #1: Middle of Week 9

Travelers: Marc because he needs one more handiness point for his LTW and I'm sure the Grim has been informed of that. Lolly because she has a Collection Helper and that will be her job. Zo because she's new and it will be her job to get that Vacation Home.

Length of Stay: 9 days (+3 from both Lolly and Marc)

Flight Leaves: Right now!

~

Upon reaching the French hotel, the three adventurers head off in pursuit of LTH points!

Lolly snaps a quick picture of Marc before heading off on the trail of metals, gems, butterflies, bugs, and the garden with the fruit trees. This gentleman was nice enough to let Lolly pick the plums, pomelos, and pomegranates from his front yard.



Marc chats up the nice cafe clerk before heading off to the art museum. It wasn't the art he was interested in though.



Handiness level 10, check. LTW, check! All before bedtime. The rest of the trip finds Marc collecting the live stuff while Lolly sticks to the dead stuff.

Zo checks in with the adventure board and and runs off finding treasure, opening chests, breaking piles of rubble, diving into wells, and talking to the locals.











Oh, and getting her Visa to level 3!

On their last day of a very successful trip to France, they all meet up at the cafe for one last meal of frog legs.



Week 9 part 2 next!

@ Simstar: So was I!

Wunn: Week 9 Part 2

Everyone is starving when the taxi drops the adventurers off at the house. I'm outside chatting with a young friend of mine while the boys are inside the art room, as usual. The boys rush outside when they hear the taxi pull up. After a round of hugs, we all head inside for supper when suddenly Marc isn't feeling so well.



Now, I'm no doctor but the clues are all there: feeling weightless, foggy, caught between two worlds.





Somebody must have told the Grim when their flight landed and he didn't waste any time.

The boys took Marc's death especially hard, they had grown up with him as more of a father figure than I was, and had spent so many hours learning the art of painting and sculpting from him.



And as the circle of life always continues, sometimes even the doctor is taken by surprise, especially when he's on his lunch break.



Marc and I have a short chat tonight, mostly about art and death. I will miss him, he was so willing to come aboard and help we with my list and we were best of friends once, back when we had time for chats over cereal.



R.I.P. Marc Brandt, 109 days
Sculptor, Painter, Surrogate Father, Fiance, Father, and Friend
He leaves behind a house full of friends, a finacee, 3 young boys, and a couple masterpiece museum pieces.
He is reunited in the afterlife with his young daughter, Cherie.

Remember him as when he caught his first Glowy butterfly:



Next Week: What marks will Marc's passing leave on our lives? Will Lolly and I hear the cry of grandchildren any time soon?
