Here we are at a place that I thought was gonna be a real struggle. The Bach residence, home of Tiny Bach and her nephew Falkor Bach. Hm. But that isn't their pictures at the top of this entry? Oh wait a minute. There is Falkor. If you read the University entry, you know what happened to Tiny, and who Moonchild and Bastain are...there. In that picture. My gosh..look at the networth of this family, and we are only into round 3.
So all right. We are gonna talk about everything that happened before Tiny got to leave for University.
I open the lot, and it is just a few minutes after 8 on Monday morning. Tiny is struggling with the infant Falkor, and the school bus is waiting for her. I mean, literally waiting.
The bus driver is waiting none too patiently outside of the bus. I don't know what was up with that. So. Timy suddenly declares she can't go to school because of Falkor. Well, there is the nanny standing there. So again, I don't know what is up with that. I even had Tiny call out for another nanny, she shows shortly after nine, and Tiny still would not go to school. So she looses a grade and takes an aspirational hit for that, being a knowledge Sim. But she makes it up during the week. Very good.
Before leaving for University, Tiny's sister Moonchild opened a family business to keep food in the fridge. It was a poker table venue. You know, folks would come by and gamble, paying for time in Moonchild's home. In the time since then, the business has really taken off. It was already a level 10 business, and the customer appreciation stars just keep pouring in.
Ah look. There are some of the residents of Viosinage-Partagé gambling. From left to right: Komei Tellerman, Claire Morreli and Rachel SimSelf. Oh but what's this? It looks to be in a nice building. A gambling hall, if you will. You got that right. Tiny decided to expand on the business. She built a nice building with a genuine 3 stall bathroom, added a second poker table, a dart board, and upgraded the two outdoor chess tables to nice heavy darkwood parlor chess tables. Oh, and the most popular attraction of all seems to be the self serve bar. Yep. There are a bunch of lushes gambling at the Bach house.
It wasn't long before Falkor grew up to toddler. Look, Tiny is getting a customer appreciation star from Holly Simself. Apparently Holly likes birthday parties.
Despite growing up in an atmosphere full of drinkers and card players, Falkor grew up well.
Erm.... who is this? A chick with a mohawk wearing a bowling shirt? Why, she's......
She is the Secret Shopper! YAY! Tiny just got a Best of the Best award for her improvements in the business!
Hm. How good could this place be? Luke Skywalker didn't find it real intersting. He fell asleep in the supper he got from the buffet bar and slept for over 10 hours. Either that, or he found it so great he exhausted himself gambling and didn't wanna take time to go home and rest. I wonder how his boss Bastain took the news that Luke decided to gamble instead of coming to work?
Ah. It looks like Benjamin Long knows a good place when he sees it.
Here is Lynn Simself enjoying a workout on the exercise machines at the Bach home/business. Looks like she is struggling. Beside her is Sandy Bruty who is workin' up quite a sweat. Come on Lynn, you can do it!
What in heavens is it with the mohawks? This is the repairman comin' to fix the toilet and big screen TV.
Erm....another sleeper. Looks like the excitement was just too much for Brandi LeTourneau. Another passer-outer was Ranger Morreli. Didn't get his pic though.
We are at the end of the week in the Bach home. Falkor has grown to child. It is early Monday morning, around 6 AM. Tiny's brother and sister Moonchild and Bastain return from college. The other sibling Atreyu did not return to this lot. Aww..what a nice reunion. Tiny and Moonchild enjoy a family kiss hello. I wonder what all Tiny has to tell Moonchild about the business and Falkor. I don't think Tiny will say much. As you can tell, she is ready to go to college.
Bastain waves goodbye to Tiny as she gets in the taxi to leave for University. Falkor looks like he could care less about Tiny. He has is eyes on nobody but his mom and his uncle.
*Sniff Sniff* a mother and child reunion. Moonchild and Falkor get to know each other again.
The first thing Moonchild did was close the Bach Gambling Hall. Not a good environment for a growing child, she tells Bastain. Bastain has other ideas.....
