On the day that Rosemary died, she was 110 and he was 116.  I lost Dakota at 91 and Adrianna at 92.  Jules starts out with the vegetarian trait, but as soon as he had 20,000 happiness points, he got a mid-life crises.   I think even if you use a mid-life crises sometimes the game seems to think you still have those traits.

*grumble* Close enough to 900. Jules we don't need you anymore! Go away!

I feel bad, I usually get really attached to spouses and don't want them to go, but he has been around for so long!

 . . . Am I the only one who likes Jules, apart from the fact he is outliving younger roommates?  :-[

No, I like him, too. I'll be sad when he goes. He's outlived Christopher Steel in the Dreamweavers! That's pretty cool.

Jules was fun to have around but I would have preferred that it been Dakota or Adrianna that got to see their grandchild versus Jules if I had a chance.  I had originally never planned on him living in the house with us but Dakota kept throwing wishes at him and I couldn't resist.  Plus I'm at the stage where going forward is somewhat dependent on people passing away.  You know?

Oh yes the why won't you die stage of the dynasty. So stressful because a Sims death is one of the only things we have to leave up to fate.

Alexander Cross was one of the first Sims I had move in and he lived to be 120.  Jules beats him in the end.  I almost thought he was going to be Chris from cathyknits' Rivers dynasty where Chris lived to be 157 but he didn't make it quite that far.  But hey that's kind of a spoiler huh?  I've actually gotten to the point that Generation 5 is born.  Now if only I knew what to do with him.

Yes but one day..  *cough*





Angus: "Ahh.  I love the smell of muffins in the afternoon."
Rica: "Me too.  They look good."
Angus: "Thanks!  Can I go sell them now?"
Rica: "Have you met your family?  If so, I would suggest .. wait you're not red.  Just don't tell people you're a Grim and maybe they'll buy one."


Angus: "Really?  That's what you expect me to do to selll a muffin?"
Rica: "I repeat.  Have you met your family?  Great Grandpa Redman is the leader of the underworld.  Grandpa A-man is the most well loved player of SimSports but he's also known as the most ruthless one.  Your Dad is in charge of most of the military and has been making people work extra hours to install and launch things that he himself has built.  And now you want all of these kind people to buy a muffin from you?"
Angus: "Too.  Much.   Talking."
Rica: -sigh-


Rica: "You mean you actually catch stuff in that pond?"
Jules: "Of course.  Why would I not?"
Rica: "Because it's barely bigger than a cat."


Prince Angus: "And I want all of the dragons to be summoned to my castle for tea & cake or they die!"
Rica: "Tea & Cake or Death?"
Prince Angus: "Exactly."


Angus: "Gramps we have money right?"
Ares: "Yes.  Our family does very well."
Angus: "Isn't the purpose of most evil to make more money?"
Ares: "Not entirely but I want to know where you're going with this."
Angus: "I have an idea that will not only make us money but give us more power over the people."
Ares: "I'm listening."
Rica: "Me too."
Angus: "Go away woman!"


Beowulf: "Even though your sister is a cat, we still love her right?"
Bronte: "Of course we do!"
Beowulf: "Good.  Now you can go play like you wanted."
Bronte: "Thanks Dad!"


-music-
Rica: "Shoulda made you a renaissance Sim.  Congrats."
Saffron: "Thanks.  Now to finish the challenges so Angus and Apollo aren't stuck with Artie doing their sculptures."
Rica: "Yeah he does have that tendency to pretend they're goblins."
Saffron: "Exactly."


Apollo: "Catch son!"
Angus: "Ow Dad! That got me in the cheek!"
Rica: "Now throw it back at his .. below his waist!"
Apollo: "Hey, that's just rude.  "


Ares: "I can feel you looking at me.  Stop it."


Artie: "Ahhh!"
Rica: "Sometimes I worry about you."


Rosemary: "Ahh a Ghost!"
Dakota: "Ahh a Ghost!"

And poor Angus there aren't a lot of kids to play with so he has a make believe one to entertain him...


Angus: "And they all think I'm craaazy.  You know?"
Peaches: "You are."
Angus: "That's not the point."


Angus: "Check it out.  I got all these at Scouts yesterday."
Peaches: "Wow!" -easily-impressed-


Bronte has proven to be one smart Puppy.  She knows exactly what Adrianna is.


Angus: "Find anything?"
Peaches: "No readings yet, sir."
Angus: "Keep checking!"
Peaches: "Aye Aye!"


Angus: "I think our house is too small."
Ares: "What?"
Artie: "Oh no you don't.  You're not getting me with that one little guy."
Ares: "Wow, I'm more tired than I thought."

How adorable is Angus. I still cannot quite work out who he favours more his mother or his father. I keep telling myself not to worry about what is going to happen next and enjoy the now in the story.
It doesn't help that I know that generation five has arrived in Rica Land.

Angus looks very evil in the second photo. He will give little children nightmares. It makes no sense any fish can even fit in that pond.

Rica: "Hey Hey lady.  Be careful you don't take your eye out with that thing."
Tama: "What? Oh yea.  Ok time to go down."
Rica: "You don't look like you're having as  much fun as you think you are."
Tama: "No this is fine."


Time flies when you're having fun.   The Bigglesworth Twins aged up with only Rosemary and Adrianna to watch them.


Of course that also means it was Rosemary and Adrianna who got to steal the spotlight on "dressing up" the girls.
I liked how they came out so much I saved the fur colors.  I've already seen one of them on a cat I could adopt from a shelter in another game!


Jules: "That is my girl!"
Ares, Saffron and Angus: "Aww nuts."
Tama: "Yea.  I finally won a game."
Rica: "It's the chisel.  I think it's throwing off everyone's game."
Ares: "Yeah... that's it."


Ares: "Remember the first time we ever played on this slide together?"
Adrianna: "Like it was yesterday."
Stray Cat: -hisses and does a rumbling cat growl towards the pair-
Ares: "Did you hear something?"
Brit the Dark: "Silly cat."


Angus: "I did it!  I got the last level in scouts and I got my trophy!"
Rica: "Awesome.  Ready to go home and get hormones?"
Angus: "Huh?"
Rica: "You'll see. Let's go birthday boy."


The Grims and I invited over most of the towns elderly in an attempt to get people to die.  We also wanted to see if we could hook the genie up with someone.  That's Ares rocking the DJ booth for an old maid and Tabatha Mattox, Rosemary's old flame.  The big vamp here to the corner is Franco Wolff-Cruz and Anais Willheim is still alive too. Go Go Vampires.


Beowulf: -howls out-
Bronte: "Daaaad.  Stop making such a racket.  It's just your birthday."


Adrianna: "Hey look at you big boy. Whoo!" -claps excitedly-
Tama: "Happy Birthday.  Who's a good boy? "
Beowulf: "I'm an old dog not a stupid one."


Rica: "Your turn Angus.  Time for some cake."
Jules: "Wahoo! I get to see my grandson become a fine young man. "
Anais: "I can't believe I'm getting Tama Grim's signature.  You know I have your great grandfather's, one from both of your grandparents and your parents.  This is so awesome."
Bronte: -growl, bark- "Go away foul demon!"


Rica: "Hey you! Toothy! It's right behind you!"


Angus: "How bad is it?"
Apollo: "Whoo! My kid isn't ugly!"
Ares: "My evil senses are tingling.."
Adrianna: "So hi."


Tabitha: "So.. what's a nice ghost like you doing in a place like this?"
Adrianna: "I'm here talking to you, of course."
Rica: "Oh man.  I knew I should have gotten rid of that flirting trait."


Ares: "Adrianna!  What are you doing?  How could you?!"
Summer (aka Genie): "Hey what's going on over here?"


Ares: "See what happens when you cheat on a Grim!"
Adrianna: "That's no fair.  You aren't allowed to kill anyone!"
Rica: "He didn't.  She did."


Reaper: "You guys always know how to throw a party don't you."
Tabitha: "No! Please.  I won't ever flirt again.  I promise.  I'm not ready to die."
Adrianna: "This is so not fair!"
Reaper: "Sorry chickie.  Your card was up before you got into trouble.  The boss is just calling it in.  Let's go."
Angus: "OK show's over people.  I'm in search of a hat.  Anyone seen my hat?"
Rica: "I got it over here.   That's right.. back over here."


Angus: "Ahh much better."
Rica: "You know.  You don't have to wear a hat."
Angus: "I know but I overheard this girl at the high school saying she thought it was cute."
Rica: "Hello Hormones, I didn't miss you.  Alright buddy.  I need you to do something."


Angus: -grumbles- "Work. Work."
Rica: "Hey.  The scouts gave you three points towards gardening.  Be excited!"
Angus: "Whatever woman."
Saffron: "If I can do this in heels, you can too."
Angus: "Why would I wear heels?"
Saffron: "Nevermind.  It's late and that didn't come out right."
Angus: "Oops I killed it."
Saffron: "So plant a new one!"
Rica: "I'm going to go get some sleeping potions and super sleepers ready."

Jules: "I believe your wish 'as finally come true, no?"
Rica: "Yes but it's kind of sad at the same time.  I figured if you were going to take a space in the house the least you could do was break the Chris Rivers record."
Jules: "I know not what you mean.  I am 'ow old today?"
Rica: "130."
Jules: "I 'ave 'ad a good life."


Tama: "Oh Papa."
Jules:  "It's ok, ma petite.  I can finally join your maman."
Reaper: "Oh I like it when you guys are ready to go."


Jules: "Bronte no.  It's time.   Adieu!" -jumps into grave-
Bronte: "What did he think I was going to do?"
Rica: "Beats me. "
Ares: "You'd think I'd get used to people dying.  But it's just weird to see people you know go all clear."
Reaper: "Never had that problem."
Saffron: "You just watched it happen!"
Reaper: "Not the same."


Rica: "On your mark.  Get set... Manage your moodlets."
Artie: "Awww, fail." -passes out-


Peaches: "How come we never go to the movies?"
Angus: "Because you turn into a doll when I leave the lot."
Peaches: "Oh yea."
Angus: "Why are you still small?"
Peaches: "Why are you so big?"


Peaches: "OH hey.  It's my birthday."
Angus: "Good.  I was getting a kink in the neck from looking down."
Rica: "That makes no sense."


Artie: "Ahhh!"
Rica: "I do love having teenagers around again.  Don't you?"
Artie: -sputters- "You put him up to this."
Rica: "No.  He did it autonomously while I was distracted.  Probably by you."


Rica: "Geez.  Second day in the garden & you already have one skill challenge complete."
Angus: "And I'm level 7 already. "
Rica: "I know right.  Way too easy.  "


Performance Park is officially upgraded in yellow and aqua.  Tama's favorite color is seafoam but we don't talk about that.


Random picture of the week: I knew ants played with the picnics but I never noticed them actually climbing in and out of it before.


Angus: "You seem really calm about letting me drive, Dad."
Apollo: "I drive a spaceship with my eyes closed some days.  I think you can handle a car."
Angus: "Ok.  Does that mean I can drive with my eyes closed?"
Apollo: "Do it and I'll see that you take the bus for the rest of your life."


Rica: You know it's not annoying at all to find your Sims doing it at random times but now I have to watch the dog too!

Thank you everyone for the comments.   Towards the end all Jules wanted to do was fish and he seemed happy to prove me wrong about what he could catch out of the cat pond we had. 

Artie is probably right and it probably is my fault about the teenager pranks but really if anyone deserves it, isn't it Artie? He's a royal pain in my patootie some days. 

Welcome to the forum SecretBoy.  It's always good to see new faces around here.  I'm glad the Grims crack others up like they do me.
Speaking of the Grims, *spoiler/teaser*  Sims just love to throw you curve balls don't you know!

ROFLMBO!  One laugh after the other.  Did you notice in that shot of Jules leaping into his tombstone it looked like he was mooning Grimmy?  Cracked me up!  OMG!  "Cracked me up!"  lol  The dogs were a riot too.  Actually the entire episode was.  You have a wicked sense of humor.
